ORIGIN AND DEVELOPMENT
Women’s Journey is based on the ancient Chinese herbal formula, “Warm the Menses Soup” (Wen Jing Tang). The original formula is modified for K’an Herbs by Master Chinese Herbalist Ted Kaptchuk OMD, L.Ac., to increase Heat and Cold clearing, calm the Spirit (Shen) and benefit the Yin.
CHINESE HERBAL ACTIONS
Women’s Journey improves Cold and shortages in the Conception (Ren mai) and Penetrating (Chong mai) vessels. When these vessels are Cold and lacking, Blood and Qi stagnates as they move through them. When Blood is still, it prevents the creation of new Blood. One function of Blood is to moisten and cool the body. Lacking Blood begins to show a rise in Heat signs. Because of this, Women’s Journey also addresses imbalances that are more characteristic of Heat.
Blood serves as a sign of comfort and feeling fulfilled. For women in the right age range for menopause, physical and emotional changes due to breaks in the Blood cycle may be of great concern. When patterns of Heat and Cold are both present in a woman at the same time, the practitioner needs to address both issues. Women’s Journey is designed to reduce physical signs of Cold. These may include: cold abdomen, fatigue, pale tongue color and pale skin tone. Women’s Journey is also relieves signs of Heat such as hot flashes, sweating (day or night), and disturbed sleep.
PSYCHOLOGICAL AND TRANSFORMATIONAL INDICATIONS
This formula may help those who struggle with transitions and changes in their environment. Women’s Journey is used mostly for women in menopause who display both Cold and Heat signs. Psychological signs of Cold include depression and feelings of isolation. Psychological signs of Heat include agitation, anxiety and mood issues.
IS THIS FORMULA RIGHT FOR YOU?
Women’s Journey is mainly designed to help women make a smoother transition during menopause. Some of these signs of Heat and Cold may be present.

Although this formula is mostly for women, it may also be used for men with inactive Cold and disturbed Heat. Women’s Journey is available in this fluid extract product and tablet form.
