03: Balancing your hormones by understanding your Chinese medicine pattern
Chinese medicine patterns of disharmony inform the treatment needs of a patient, in terms of herbs used, acupuncture points chosen, and food, lifestyle and exercise advice. And so, discovering your Chinese medicine pattern enables you to make better choices around food, lifestyle and exercise. Chinese medicine patterns are a collection of signs and symptoms that are similar to the Western medicine concept of a syndrome. There are hundreds of different types of patterns in Chinese medicine, sometimes nuanced so finely that it can be difficult to differentiate - but this is the beauty of Chinese medicine: it is a very personal diagnosis that allows for a targeted treatment plan based on what is going on specifically for you. Once you can discern your Chinese medicine pattern, there are lots of things you can do outside of the clinic to help balance your hormones. In this episode we will go through: - a basic understanding of the Chinese medicine organs involved in the menopause transition - the five most common patterns I see in clinic (there are many, many more, however this is what I commonly see) - a basic understanding of the energetics of food and exercise in Chinese medicine and how they apply to a pattern As a special bonus for this session, I have created a guide for you to use so you can determine your Chinese medicine pattern, and make better choices around exercise, food and lifestyle.
