Abstract:
Background: Menopause occurs mainly by the end of menstruation and hot flushes, but there are often other physical and psychological symptoms.
Aim: to evaluate effectiveness of plant hormone replacement therapy and relevance of ayurvedic categories (Vata, Pitta or Kapha) in a postmenopausal population.
Methods: First, we studied the constitution, tongue and pulse for a woman of 54 years old during four interviews. Second, we examined the effects of a combination of pacifying and regenerating therapies on the organs, the channels and the body tissues that are involved.
Results: Specifically for a Pitta-Vata woman, we observed general improvement on digestion, movements and bone joints, energy level, stress management and psychology, and also neck pain and circulatory problems. However, hair loss and oedema on the skull are related to lack of estrogenic hormones during menopause.
Conclusion: Ayurvedic phytotherapy is additional to diet, psychology and healthy lifestyles to promote wellness and health.
