The season of a woman's life during menopause marks a significant transition, as her body undergoes hormonal changes and her menstrual cycle comes to an end. Menopause is a natural part of the ageing process, and while it may bring about physical and emotional changes, it also represents a time of self-discovery, wisdom and a newfound sense of freedom for many women. Embracing this transformative phase with self-compassion and support can empower women to navigate menopause with grace and confidence.
When a woman reaches her ‘Second Spring’ life phase, her body changes due to a decrease in hormone production, specifically oestrogen and progesterone. Menopause is officially confirmed after a woman has gone 12 consecutive months without a menstrual period. Some common symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, vaginal dryness and changes in sleep patterns. While it marks the end of a woman's reproductive years and can bring challenges, it also represents a new phase of life for women of renewed energy and explore new opportunities. In TCM, our relationship with our ‘Second Spring’ can keep us in harmonious relationships with ourselves and others. It is a time of great reverent.
Women go through all this at a time when they're often carers for not only their own children, but also their grandchildren - and so nurturing them through this season is crucial in propping up an entire support system. Wether a woman has had a baby or not it is likely that because its their nature, they have and will continue to play a care-taking roll within their community in some capacity. Let's hold them as they hold so many.
