Hormones are the body’s natural chemicals, and hormonal changes during menopause can cause a range of side effects, including:
Hot Flashes and Night Sweats
During menopause, the hormones that regulate body temperature are in flux, and that can lead to uncomfortable and sudden flashes of heat. These changes can be embarrassing and can deprive you of sleep, which affects every aspect of your life and performance. By rebalancing hormones using natural therapies including acupuncture, diet, and nutritional supplements, you can take control of your body during menopause.
Many women in menopause have bouts of difficulty focusing, learning, and remembering. Feeling confused, disoriented, and frustrated can affect relationships, self-worth, and performance at work. Holistic therapies rebalance the hormones and minimize or eliminate these discouraging symptoms.
During menopause, estrogen and testosterone levels are reduced, often leading to reduced sex drive, vaginal dryness, weight gain and mood changes. With all this going on, sex can become an unwanted chore. Loss of libido can take a toll on relationships, self-worth, and overall enjoyment of life. We can rebalance your hormones using natural treatments, encourage blood flow to the vagina for greater arousal, and increase natural lubrication with vaginal steams.
As estrogen levels drop during and after menopause, bone strength is reduced and the risk of osteoporosis, bone fractures, and greater immobility increase. Acupuncture, diet, and supplements can all improve bone density during and after menopause, as well as complementing hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
Diminishing estrogen levels are believed to increase the risk of heart disease, along with dietary and other risk factors. Using natural therapies, we can rebalance hormones, improve diet and nutrition, and reduce stress and other factors to improve your heart health.
Many women experience hormone-related headaches throughout life, and these can be amplified during menopause. Traditional Chinese medicine is effective in alleviating or eliminating the pain of headaches related to hormone fluctuations in perimenopause and menopause.
It is absolutely possible to take control of your hormones and eliminate these symptoms without medication. Whether you wish to get a head-start on managing symptoms, are experience early menopause, or have been in menopause for some time – we’re here to support you.
