Menopause

 

Chinese Medicine recognizes menopause, the change in a woman's body chemistry, as a natural transitional process.

 

CHINESE MEDICINE

Ideally menopause is relatively uneventful, in the East it often is, perhaps due to diet and lifestyle. Unfortunately, the fast paced, stressful lifestyle of the contemporary urban Western woman, often gives rise to menopausal symptoms.These can include hot flashes, night sweats, headaches, mood swings, sleeping disorders, urogenital problem, somatic symptoms vertigo and headaches, palpitations, and sexual dysfunction.

 

BALANCE

Chinese Medicine can help bring the body back into balance, making this process smooth and easy.

 

Hot flashes, are a sudden feeling of heat over all or parts of the body. They may also cause redness on the face and neck, red blotches on the arms, back and chest, and heavy sweating or cold shivers. Many health conditions can cause hot flashes, but they are most common among women going through menopause.

 

The recent study found that menopausal women who underwent Acupuncture experienced a reduction in the severity and frequency of hot flashes for up to 3 months. The most effective treatment for hot flashes is hormone therapy - the use of medication that contains estrogen or progesterone. However, such treatment can increase the risk of other health conditions, including stroke, heart disease and cancer.

 

Acupuncture is a great non drug treatment alternative with virtualy no side effects.
