From the article:
We view the condition of POF as a failure of communication: messages from the brain just aren't getting to the ovaries, and they cease their performance. As a result, the whole system increases its (Yang) energy to try to evoke a response from the ovaries, producing a frenetic cycle of stimulation with no effect. The result is depletion of Yin and deficiency Heat. Most POF cases we have treated have presented with a severe Kidney Yin deficiency, usually accompanied by (Liver or Heart) Blood deficiency, and Spleen Qi deficiency accompanied by deficient heat. It also is not unusual to see concurrent Kidney Yang deficiency.
A typical treatment will consist of the following recommendations.
Dietary modifications from the Spleen-fortifying diet, avoiding wheat, refined carbohydrates, sugars, dairy, and most animal products. It's also wise to avoid hot, spicy foods if signs of internal heat are present. We want to calm the body down to make it less reactive. Dietary insults can set off aggravations in autoimmune conditions.

Take herbs to fortify the spleen like Astragalus; herbs to nourish Yin and Blood like the formulas Liu Wei Di Huang Wan or Si Wu Tang, or the individual herbs Rehmannia, Angelica, White Peony, and Ophiopogon; and herbs to resolve Blood stasis and obstruction, like Persica, Moutan, and Red Peony.
We stimulate the acupressure points to regulate the Penetrating (Chong) and Conception (Ren) meridians, and to supplement Yin and Blood. We employ techniques to improve blood flow to the pelvic organs and open up communication to the brain and pituitary gland.
