A-ma-ta: The Natural Botanical that Brings Balance Back

Jan 30, 2015 05:41PM

A recent study reported that 25 million new women each year enter menopause, and the number grows with each year. This “change of life” is much more than “raging hormones,” although many women continue to suffer in silence, or seek treatments that are often risky. Up until recently, menopause was seen as a series of symptoms to be endured. One survey had 70 percent of respondents experiencing hot flashes, sleeplessness and night sweats. More than 60 percent experienced mood swings and irritability.

Dr. Christiane Northrup, who has spent her life as an advocate for women’s health and wellness, has championed the vision that menopause is a rite of passage into a woman’s wisdom years. This period of midlife provides a wonderful opportunity for transforming and healing their bodies, minds, and spirits at the deepest levels.

A-ma-ta was born from Dr. Northrup’s desire to transform the experience of menopause from one of dread to one of empowerment and pleasure. When she discovered the traditional Thai botanical Pueraria Mirifica, which in Latin means “miracle maker,” it was a revelation. Women in Southeast Asia have used Pueraria Mirifica for more than 700 years as a daily regimen to relieve the symptoms of menopause and maintain their youthful energy.

A-ma-ta, from the Thai word for “ageless” and “eternal,” represents a new approach to women’s health. Thousands of women have used this natural botanical to bring balance and vitality back to their lives.

Dr. Christiane NorthrupLife after 40 is not a collection of symptoms to be “fixed,” but a mind-body revolution that brings tremendous opportunities for happiness and joy.
