Menopause – Nature & Health Magazine
December 2016 – January 2017 – By Shura Ford

It is expected that around the age of 49 (the 7th of the 7 year cycles) the Tian Gui, (translated as Heavenly Water) along with the vitality of channels of the Ren Mai (Conception vessel- Sea of Yin) and the Chong Mai (Penetrating vessel – Sea of Blood) will gradually decline and then finally empty, resulting in the cessation of menstruation.
If a woman is healthy this transition can be mild, however if there are underlying pathologies then a woman will be less able to adapt to these changes without consequence.
