Why Bleeding Between Cycles Can Cause Issues
Signs of blood deficiency:
• pale tongue (color under the white coating)
• low energy
• inability to fall asleep easily
Signs of anemia:
• same as blood deficiency but the tongue is paler and the sides of the tongue are lighter than the middle
How Chinese Medicine Sees This Issue
Traditional Chinese Medicine says that you are bleeding between cycles because your digestive system is not strong enough.
• soft stools
• gas and/or bloating
• no interest in eating in the morning
• slight scalloping on the sides of the tongue
Also, if you tend to chill easily this can drag down your energy. Lack of energy and cold energy both make it difficult for your body to work efficiently. Your power generator (your digestive system) is tired.
This lack of vitality can make you brings less interest in sex and less energy to support your daily schedule. So the cycle needs to be broken. Not just with herbal formulas, but with food and movement therapy.
