What is Chinese Medicine & Herbal Medicine?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient practice that dates back thousands of years. Its basic concept is that a vital life force, called Qi, which moves through the body. Any imbalance in Qi can cause disease and illness, and TCM seeks to restore this balance through treatment specific to you and your unique needs. The key concept is that health and energy must be aligned, and TCM aims to achieve this balance in your body. At Garnet Moon Denver we are Chinese Medicine & Herbal Medicine experts, and an ABORM Fellow certified clinic for Reproductive Medicine. Chinese & Herbal Medicine: Vibrant Wellness: Feel Better!
Chinese Medicine Restores Your Health.
Central to TCM is the concept of Yin and Yang. Ancient Chinese believed that humans are microcosms of the larger universe, interconnected with nature and subject to its forces. Yin and Yang are opposite and common forces that makeup Qi. A disharmony between these two forces can lead to illness, disease, infertility, and hormonal imbalances. It is essential to restore the balance between Yin and Yang to achieve health and wellness.
Chinese medicine & Herbal Medicine in the Yin and Yang theory also corresponds to hormones in science-based modern medicine.
Yin in TCM is estrogen
Yin the estrogen hormone responsible for thickening the uterine lining and growing follicles in the follicular phase with the hormone FSH (also a Yin hormone) to begin the preparation process for ovulation. Also, it moistens the body, so it is responsible for cervical mucus, the uterine lining, and building blood. Estrogen is also responsible for building and maintaining bones and muscles and decreases as we age; this is why we see more Yin deficiency in people who are middle-aged and older.
Some common disorders and imbalances in the body relating to estrogen include endometriosis, thin uterine lining, irregular cycles, breast issues, osteoporosis, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), PMS & PMDD, and obesity. Maintaining healthy estrogen levels requires a healthier lifestyle. Chinese Medicine (TCM) helps with creating harmony within your body for better sleep, managing stress, balancing hormones, and guiding you to make healthier choices through diet, consuming less caffeine & alcohol, healthy amounts of exercise & physical activity, mindfulness & meditation, and emotional balance; all of this is critical in the balance of Yin and estrogen for optimal health.

Yang in TCM is progesterone
Yang the progesterone hormone pushes the egg out of the corpus luteum for ovulation in the second half of the menstrual cycle Progesterone works with the LH (also a Yang hormone) in the ovulation process. Progesterone is also responsible for the movement of blood, the egg meeting the sperm for fertilization to occur, building the uterine lining (endometrium), creating warmth in the body, and one of the critical pregnancy hormones at the start of early pregnancy in building the placenta.
Signs of low progesterone include irregular menstrual cycles, recurrent miscarriages, abnormal uterine bleeding (periods), irregular spotting, mood swings, sleep issues, and decreased libido (sex drive). Maintaining healthy progesterone levels is essential, and Chinese Medicine (TCM) helps with an irregular cycle, a luteal phase defect (often seen with Yang & progesterone deficiency), easing anxiety, balancing hormones, slowing the aging process, assisting in the function of the thyroid and endocrine system, increase the uterine lining (endometrium), decreasing the chance of miscarriage, improving libido (sex drive), regulating periods and stopping painful periods from PMS, PMDD, and endometriosis.
