Ladies, it’s time to talk about your personal rejuvenation, and that’s why EmpowHer’s 38th generation doctor of Chinese medicine, Dr. Maoshing Ni, is here.

Dr. Mao, how can women activate their body’s rejuvenating power? How does that happen?

Dr. Maoshing Ni:
Well, first of all, you have to understand “second spring” is not a new concept. It’s an ancient Chinese concept. We don’t have, in China, we don’t have words for a menopause; we don’t have words for really old age. We have second spring because we recognize that life itself renews and that if you know what to do for your body, your body will regenerate at any age.

So second spring is really about this change, this ability to be empowered and take charge of your health and therefore your life, and when you are able to do so, then you can pursue your dreams and live your life to your full potential and in a way, reinvent your life anytime you want.

Well, doctor, let’s start off with like the menopause period, and I know we are going to jump around and cover a lot of territory.

We value and respect our HERWriters' experiences, but everyone is different. Many of our writers are speaking from personal experience, and what's worked for them may not work for you. Their articles are not a substitute for medical advice, although we hope you can gain knowledge from their insight.
