Premature Ovarian Failure In Traditional Chinese Medicine Perspective

   Posted by Chantel Martiromo,  Article By Kyle J. Norton  

Premature ovarian failure is defined as a condition of which the ovarian is no longer responded to the brain in production of follicle before the age of 40, leading to high levels of FSH in the bloodstream and menopause hormonal symptoms. It is caused by either the accelerated loss of eggs or follicles are become less responsive to hormone stimulation from the pituitary gland. It has been estimated that POF affects 1% of the population. While conventional medicine uses synthesis medication to stimulate the ovarian response and artificial insemination with only 5% success rate accompanying with a high medical cost, it drives many women to seek help from traditional medicine, including the traditional Chinese medicine.
Traditional Chinese medicine views POF as an excess and deficiency pattern caused by emptiness of the penetrating and conception meridians and treatments are totally depended to her unique diagnosis, there is no one treatment for all.
I. Diagnosis
Most women with POF have some of following symptoms
1. irritability, a rapid pulse and a red tongue
2. Pale or normal tongue
3. Weak pulse
4. Weakness
5. Lethargy Pale,
6. Shallow breathing , soft voice Little desire to speak
7. Poor appetite
8. Fatigue
9. Loose stools
10. Indigestion
11. Bloating and gas
12. Reddish tongue with little or no coating
13. Dry mouth, especially at night
14. Dark, scanty urination
15. Night sweats
16. Thirst
17. Dizziness
18. Heat flushes
19. Constipation
20. Palpitations
21. Forgetfulness
22. Constipation Pale complexion
23. Pale and dry, cracked lips
24. Anxiety
25. Numbness or tingling in limbs
26. Light menses
27.Difficulty urinating, and
28. Edema
29. Cold limbs,
30. Lack of energy
31. Low sexual desire
Since each woman is diagnosed as her own entity, some symptoms may be found in some women, but not in the other, depending to the diagnosis.
I. Causes of POF in TCM perspective
A. Excessive yang
Caused by an excessive loss of vital essence and nutrient fluid, leading to dryness of skin, chapped lips, nose bleed, mouth sore, urinary burning, etc. and interfering with the kidney function in hormonal regulation, resulting in ovarian abnormal function in responding to the hormone secretion from pituitary gland.
B. Spleen qi deficiency
1. Liver
Liver has directed influentially in spleen function, without strong liver there is no treatment for spleen blockade and deficiency.
2. Diet and occupation
Since spleen prefer warm and hot foods, prolong period working in col environment and eating cold foods will effect the spleen function in synthesizing carbohydrate synthesizing, disrupting the processes in nutrients absorption, obstructing the blood flow to the abdominal region and effecting the luteal phrase, resulting in infertility
3. Life style and weakened liver
Spleen is view as the organ of digestion ( nutrients distribution ) and elimination ( eliminating the body waste ). Spleen qi deficiency is normal caused by irregular dietary habits and excessive use of mind in studying and working. Weakened liver may also increases the risk of toxins accumulation and liver qi stagnation in the body, effecting the spleen function and obstructing implantation of egg in the uterine lining.
C. Kidney yin deficiency
a) Unhealthy diet
As oppose to yang deficiency, It is caused by men who love to hot and spicy food leading to heat accumulation in the body causing yin deficiency.
b) External factor
Working in the hot environment causes the depletion of fluids in the body including the kidney leading abundant yang qi production.
c) Low sexual activity
Frequent sexual activity increases the risk of yang deficiency, low sexual activity causes energy overly accumulation in the reproductive organ, leading to yin deficiency.
D. Blood deficiency
Tradition Chinese medicine view blood deficiency is caused by weakened spleen organ, thereby, reducing the spleen function in blood formation, leading to causes not enough blood to distribute to the body such as absence of (no blood for) menstruation. Blood deficiency leads to abnormal function of reproductive system in regulating menstrual cycle, disrupting the production of egg or produces poor quality egg and makes uterine mucus hostile to sperm.
F. Kidney yang deficiency
1 Unhealthy diet
As we known, we live in the society, where everything we drink are mostly cold including milk. It has a danger effect in both female and male body as it depletes of the yang qi which is needed to counter the the cold effects of abundant yin, leading to kidney yang deficiency. If one day, our yang qi production from the kidney jing is no longer working well, it will cause symptoms of infertility
2. External factors
a) Working in the cold environment such as fish, poultry and meat processing plants may deplete the kidney yang as our body require to produce yang qi constantly to counter the external cold.
b) People stay in the cold place for prolong period of time may also have the same effect as people working in cold environment.
b) Frequent sexual activity
According to traditional medical medicine, sexual intercourse helps to improve blood circulation and production of certain hormones which are necessary for our health. It also helps to balance the kidney yin qi but frequent sexual activity depletes the kidney jing which is vital for hormone and sperm production, leading to low sperm count or semen with no sperm as well as kidney diseases.
II. Treatments
1. Diet modification
a). Since most women with POF are diagnosed with excessive yang in the west caused by the typical American diet as resulting of the body evokes the response from the ovaries, it is advised that spicy and hot foods are eliminated from the diet until excessive yang can be neutralized.
b) What to avoid
i) Simple sugar and refine starches
Simple sugar and refine starches have a very high reading in the GI index list as they cause sharp rise and drop of blood sugar in the bloodstream.
ii) Hormone imbalance
As the levels of insulin produced by the pancreas have to increase traumatically when the blood sugar levels rise and stop when the blood sugar drop. The imbalance of levels of sugar also cause the over production of cortisol hormone by the adrenal gland that interferes with production of sex hormone, causing infertility.
iii) Vitamins
Over production of cortisol caused by intake of sugar and refine starches also increases the risk of nutrients deficiency as resulting of vitamins and minerals depletion including B vitamin and magnesium.
iv) Weakened immune system
Study show that intake a teaspoon of simple sugar can weaken the immune system up to 4 hours as resulting of weakening protein functions in body defence.
v) Saturated fat and trans fat
Saturated fat and trans fat interferes the liver function in essential fatty acid metabolism, leading to over production of certain hormones in the prostaglandins family, causing menstrual camps and pain, nervous tensions as well as irregular menstrual cycle, thereby increasing the risk of infertility.
vi) Coffee
Intake of large amount of coffee daily to fight off stress may have a negative effect in the reproductive system. As study show that women who consume 300 mg or more of caffeine take longer to conceive than women who do not or take less.
vii) Drug and alcohol
Drugs and alcohol can influence an imbalance of reproductive hormones. As drug increases the tension of the nervous system leading to hormone imbalance, excessive alcohol drinking can cause liver damage, which abnormal function of liver in all kinds of metabolism, causing blood and qi stagnation in the liver and effecting a couple's reproductive abilities. Alcohol also causes nervous tension, leading to over production of certain hormones, thereby, increasing the risk of infertility.
viii) Carbonate Soda
Carbonate soda contains high amount of sweetener, caffeine and phosphate which can interfere with calcium absorption as well as stimulating the over production of certain hormone including cortisol, leading to fatigue, stress and anxiety.
ix) Most animal and dairy products
Because most animal and diary products are considered acidic which can distort the balance of pH levels in the body, making cervical mucus hostile to sperm invasion as well as preventing the implantation of egg.
2. Chinese herbs
a) Herbs for Blood Deficiency
i. He shou wu (fleeceflower root)
He shou wu is a liver tonic herb, it promotes liver function in blood formation and increase the kidney qi in assisting the liver in transporting blood to the heart for circulation, thereby reducing the blood stagnation causes of deficiency.

Estrogen and progestin bioactivity of foods, herbs, and spices

Posted by Chantel Martiromo. research contributed by PubMed

In the study of the content and bioactivity of plant (phyto) estrogens and progestins in various foods, herbs, and spices, before and after human consumption, over 150 herbs traditionally used by herbalists for treating a variety of health problems were extracted and tested for their relative capacity to compete with estradiol and progesterone binding to intracellular receptors for progesterone (PR) and estradiol (ER) in intact human breast cancer cells, posted in PubMed, indicated that the six highest ER-binding herbs that are commonly consumed were soy, licorice, red clover, thyme, tumeric, hops, and verbena. The six highest PR-binding herbs and spices commonly consumed were oregano, verbena, tumeric, thyme, red clover and damiana. Some of the herbs and spices found to contain high phytoestrogens and phytoprogestins were further tested for bioactivity based on their ability to regulate cell growth rate in ER (+) and ER (-) breast cancer cell lines and to induce or inhibit the synthesis of alkaline phosphatase, an end product of progesterone action, in PR (+) cells. In general, we found that ER-binding herbal extracts were agonists, much like estradiol, whereas PR-binding extracts, were neutral or antagonists. The bioavailability of phytoestrogens and phytoprogestins in vivo were studied by quantitating the ER-binding and PR-binding capacity of saliva following consumption of soy milk, exogenous progesterone, medroxyprogesterone acetate, or wild mexican yam products containing diosgenin. Soy milk caused a dramatic increase in saliva ER-binding components without a concomitant rise in estradiol. Consumption of PR-binding herbs increased the progestin activity of saliva, but there were marked differences in bioactivity. In summary, we have demonstrated that many of the commonly consumed foods, herbs, and spices contain phytoestrogens and phytoprogestins that act as agonists and antagonists in vivo.

Premature Ovarian Failure In Conventional Medicine Perspective

  Posted by Chantel Martiromo,  Article By Kyle J. Norton  

A. Definition
Premature ovarian failure is defined as a condition of which the ovarian is no longer responded to the brain in production of follicle before the age of 40, leading to high levels of FSH in the bloodstream and menopause hormonal symptoms. It is caused by either the accelerated loss of eggs or follicles are become less responsive to hormone stimulation from the pituitary gland. It has been estimated that POF affects 1% of the population. While conventional medicine uses synthesis medication to stimulate the ovarian response and artificial insemination with only 5% success rate accompanying with a high medical cost, it drives many women to seek help from traditional medicine, including the traditional Chinese medicine.
B. Infertility & POFs In Conventional Medicine Perspective
II. Diagnosis
If you have some of the symptoms below, your doctor may order a blood test for hormones and the levels of FSH hormone, if your blood test indicated a high levels of FSH (follicle Stimulating Hormone), you may suspect to have premature ovarian failure. It's usually necessary to repeat the blood test to make sure the first test was correct. Sometimes, a Chomid challenging test is require to confirm the first test result.
III. Causes
The causes of POFs is known, but some researchers suspect
1. Autoimmune disorders
It is caused by abnormal function of immune system in producing antibody antigen that destroys the body tissues, leading to the destruction of ovarian function.
2. Turner syndrome
It is genetic cause of POF as resulting of a complete or near-complete loss of the second X, because it requires to have 2 functioning X chromosomes for normal ovarian function.
3. Fragile X syndrome
It is the most common cause of inherited mental impairment and associated with premutation form of the FMR1 gene, leading to increasing the risk of premature ovarian failure or early menopause. The premutation form of the FMR1 gene can be easily detected in blood or cheek cells via a DNA test.
4. Chemotherapy and radiation
It is said that chemotherapy and radiation to the pelvic region may damage the uterus, leading to abnormal function of the ovaries resulting in infertility and early menopause.
6. Surgery
Any surgery involve removal of the uterus without removing the ovaries may increase the risk of premature ovarian failure.
7. Enzymes deficiency
It is said that women can not produce enough certain enzymes such as enzyme 17 alpha hydroxylase and 17 and 20 lesmolase may increase the risk of POF as resulting of low levels of estrogen being produced.
8. Infection
Infections such as chickenpox, malaria, tuberculosis and mumps may increase the risk of premature ovarian failure.
IV. Symptoms
Symptoms of POFs is similar to symptoms of menopause, include
1. Irregular periods (different length of bleeding or change in flow)
2. Hot flashes caused by low levels of estrogen.
3. Night sweats caused by low levels pf estrogen
4. Decrease in sexual drive caused by low levels of testosterone
5. Irritability caused by low levels of estrogen
6. Painful sex caused by thinning and drying of vagina
V. Treatments
1. Estrogen therapy
a) How it works
Estrogen therapy (ET) is a medical treatment with a medication containing only estrogen hormone. Estrogen-only therapy helps to increase the estrogen levels, thereby, stimulating the communication of the brain as the increasing of FSH hormone to induce egg production and egg extruding. It is said that Estrogen therapy has helped many women with POF to conceive.
b) Risks
i) Heart diseases
ii) Blood clotting
iii) Breast cancer
iv) Gallbladder diseases
c) Side effects
Some women may experience the below side effects
i) Fluid retention,
ii) Bloating,
iii) Nausea,
iv) Breast tenderness
v) Mood swings
vi) Headache
2. Estradiol
a) How is works
Estradiol is actually a type of estrogen, by injecting the synthesis form of estradiol , it stimulates the brain to shut off the production of FSH leading to egg maturing and extruding into Fallopian tube for natural fertilization.
b) Risks
i) Endometrial hyperplasia
ii) Cancer of the lining of the uterus
iii) Stroke
iv) Breast cancer
c) Side effects
i)Uterine bleeding,
ii) Breast tenderness,
iii) Nausea and vomiting,
iv) Chloasma,
v) Cholestasis,
vi) Migraine headaches
3. Hormone replacement therapy HRT
a) How HRT works
Hormone replacement therapy provides estrogen and other synthesis hormones which are necessary for the natural process of menstrual cycle, by signalling the production of LH and FSH as well as signalling the release of mature egg to the Fallopian tube.
b) Risks
i) Liver disease
ii) Breast cancer
iii) Uterus cancer
iv) Blood clots in the vein, legs, or lungs
v) Gallbladder disease
vi) Heart diseases or stroke
c) Side effects
i) Vaginal bleeding of unknown cause
ii) Breast pain
iii) Nausea
iv) Bloating and fluid retention
v) Blood clots in the vein, legs, or lungs.
vi) Moodswing
4. Clomid (Clomiphene citrate)
a) How it works
Clomid stimulates the pituitary gland in secreting, leading to maturing of some eggs and ovulation.
b) Risks
i) Ovarian hyperstimulation
ii) Multiple birth
iii) Cancer
c) Side effects
i ) Hot Flashes
ii) Bloating
iii) Abdominal paid and cramps
iv) Weight gain
v) Moodswing
vi) Nausea and dizziness
vii) Abnormal menstrual bleeding
viii) Visual disturbances
6. Cytoplasm
This is a new kind of treatment, by taking DNA from your healthy egg and places it inside the nutrient components of a donor's egg as your DNA goes into the healthy egg for artificial insemination.
7. Artificial Insemination
Some doctors also try to use IVF with donor egg, while it gives the woman a baby but it dose not address the underline failure of the ovaries and other symptoms of menopause.
Unfortunately, the success rate for a happy conception for women with premature ovarian failure is about 5%.
Always keep yourself positive and work together with your doctor, you may get pregnant sooner than you think

Estrogenic activity of natural and synthetic estrogens in human breast cancer cells in culture

Posted by Chantel Martiromo. research contributed by PubMed
In the study to investigate the estrogenic activity of various environmental pollutants (xenobiotics), in particular the xenoestrogen o,p-DDT, and compared their effects with those of endogenous estrogens, phytoestrogens, and mycoestrogens on estrogen receptor binding capacity, induction of estrogen end products, and activation of cell proliferation in estrogen-sensitive human breast cancer cells in monolayer culture, posted in PubMed, indicated that natural endogenous estrogens, phytoestrogens, mycoestrogens, and xenoestrogens bind estrogen receptor (ER) in intact cells, but demonstrate marked differences in their ability to induce end products of estrogen action and to regulate cell proliferation. All of the different classes of estrogens stimulated cell proliferation at concentrations that half-saturated ER, but only some classes were able to induce estrogen-regulated end products. Genistein, a common phytoestrogen found in soy foods, differed from the xenoestrogen DDT in its effects on cell proliferation and ability to induce estrogen-regulated end products. Moreover, we found that many of the foods, herbs, and spices commonly consumed by humans contain significant amounts of phytoestrogens, and consumption of soy milk, a phytoestrogen-rich food, markedly increases the levels of phytoestrogens in saliva. In conclusion, our in vitro results predict that a diet high in phytoestrogens would significantly reduce the binding of weak xenoestrogens to ER in target tissues in vivo.

Hemorrhagic Cysts

 Posted by Chantel Martiromo,  Article By Kyle J. Norton 

Hemorrhagic cyst is defined as a condition of bleeding within the cyst, causing abdominal pain, flaming and discomfort in the side of ovary where the cyst locates. According to the article posted in Squidoo "Hemmorhagic Cyst is not cancerous" the article indicated that many women thought of the misconception about ovarian cysts, like Hemorrhagic Cyst, that painful ovarian cysts can be cancerous. Ovarian cysts may aggravate but not cancerous. I believe the author were taking about women in their reproductive years instead of after, according to Diana Rodriguez in the article of Do Ovarian Cysts Mean Ovarian Cancer?, as she indicated that but in older women who have gone through menopause — most often those between the ages of 50 and 70 years old — cysts are more likely to be ovarian cancer.

Symptoms
1. In most case, it causes no symptom
2. Swelling may cause discomfort to some women
3. Leaking can cause abdominal cramps and pain
4. Rupture can result in similar symptoms as of ovarian cyst.
5. Discomfort of pelvis, vagina, lower back, if leaks
6. Blood clots that may restrict the normal blood circulation due to blood bleeding in the cyst.
7. Etc.

Causes
1. insufficient release of luteinizing hormones (LH) cause of egg attached onto follicles.
2. Cysts are formed as a normal part of the process as it bleeds, it can become hemorrhagic cysts.
3. It can be caused by hormone imbalance in the follicular phase.
4. Etc.

Diagnosis and tests
Ultrasound is one of the most used to document the Hemorrhagic Cysts, following up with monitoring.
Endo-vaginal ultrasound
If you doctor suspects that you may have develop hemorrhagic cysts, he or she may order an Ultrasound to exam your pelvic organs. Hemorrhagic Cysts can be diagnosed based on the images from the ultrasound.

Treatments
Since most of hemorrhagic cysts are harmless, they do not pose a threat to women's health and Usually, the cyst will dissolve itself. Many doctors suggest to use ultrasonic observation or endovaginal ultrasound to monitor the growth frequently, unless there is absolutely necessary then surgery may be required.
A. Pain killer and Oral contraceptive pills
1. At the same time taking pain killer to relieve pain, oral contraceptive pill may be helpful by
a. Creating a continual pregnancy like state, resulting in relieving menstrual pain
b. Inhibiting the over production of prostaglandins which cause the muscles spam contraction.
c. Stopping or reducing of period blood flow.
g. Shrinking the follicular cysts
e. Etc.

2. Risks and side effects
a. Growth of fibroids
Growth of fibroid is caused high level of estrogen and progesterone. The intake of the pill increases the level of both hormones resulting in increasing the risk of growth of fibroid.
b. Recurrent of menstrual symptoms
Some women stop taking the pill may see all the menstrual symptoms coming back.
c. Blood clots
Estrogen in the pill may cause blood clots in the small vessels in the leg and the lung.
d. Stroke and heart diseases
Study shows that women who have higher natural estrogen levels may have a higher risk of stroke and heart diseases.
e. Depression and mood swing
At the beginning, it may cause abnormal fluctuations in estrogen and progesterone elevate both physical and psychological stress, eventually resulting in both depression and mood swing
f. Bleeding and spotting
Bleeding and spotting is normal for the first six months for women who begin with any oral contraceptive combination pill treatment.
g. Lost of sexual desire
Some women may experience lower sexual desire
h. Etc.

2. Cystectomy
a. If the hemorrhagic cyst is small in size, has caused severe pain and fertility is a concern, cystectomy with a laparoscopic, may be a good choice as it is an effectively surgical treatment.
b. Risks and side effects
Surgical and anesthetic risks

Follicular cysts

Posted by Chantel Martiromo,  Article By Kyle J. Norton  

Follicular cyst, is a sac filled with fluid, normally forms at the time of ovulation as a result of mature follicle has become involution or when ovulation does not occur. That means there is a follicle which doesn't rupture or release its egg but instead grows in the ovaries and becomes a cyst. During every month of menstrual cycle About one-fourth of women with this type of cyst experience pain when ovulation occurs,the follicular cyst may rupture, causing severe pain to about one-fourth of women.

Symptoms
1. In most case there is no symptom at all
2. Serve pain in the ovaries' side of follicular cyst.
3. Sharp pain if the cyst ruptures during ovulation.
4. Nervous tension
As a result of the hormone production of the follicular cysts
5. Changes in general metabolism
As a result of hormonal secretion of the cysts
6. Loss of sexual desire
7. Etc.

Diagnosis and testes
Ultrasound is one of the most used to document the follicular cyst, following up with monitoring, but sometimes, as to rule out the case of cancer, CT scan and MRI may also be recommended, if the cyst is causing severe pain, or if it is suspicious in any way.
1. Endo-vaginal ultrasound:
If you doctor suspects that you may have develop follicular cysts, he or she may order an Ultrasound to exam your pelvic organs. follicular cysts can be diagnosed based on the images on the ultrasound.

2. CT scan (Computed Tomography scan)
If your ultrasound image has found follicular cysts, your doctor may want to confirm the abnormalities by ordering a CT scan. CT scan generates a large series of two-dimensional X-ray images taken around a single axis of rotation, to create a three-dimensional picture of the inside of the body in details.The pictures are viewed by your doctor to see the extent of the cystic abnormalities.

3. MRI (magnetic resonance imaging)
MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is one of many advanced technology used to visualize internal structures cross sectional imaging of your body used effectively in providing the better details of the cysts and surrounding areas.

4. Etc.

Causes
1. Pituitary gonadotropin in the production of follicle-stimulating hormone causes of failure of ovulation of the mature follicle.
2. Failure of ovulation and luteinization.
