Female Treasure™ Formulae
“Treasure” refers to the Uterus. This formula addresss menopausal symptoms deriving from Liver- and Kidney-Yin deficiency with Liver-Yang rising. “Female Treasure™” is also a direct translation of the Chinese formula for this menopausal pattern (Kun Bao). Note that, interestingly, “Kun” is the trigram for “Earth” which also stands for “female”, as opposed to “Qian” i.e. “Heaven” and, by extension, “male’.
