Relieve Menopausal Symptoms with Traditional Chinese Medicine
Are you sick and tired of hot flashes?
Are you struggling with insomnia, anxiety or depression?
Are you worried about being on hormone replacement therapy?
Menopause should be a time to nourish and take care of yourself – however, if you suffer debilitating menopausal symptoms this can be impossible. Hot flashes interfere with daily activities and often affect your sleep. This can lead to irritability, fatigue, and depression. Hormone replacement therapy can help you manage these symptoms, but do not resolve the underlying issue and may have unhealthy or unpleasant side effects.
Fortunately there is a natural alternative…
Traditional Chinese medicine has been treating the symptoms of menopause for over 2000 years, operating on the principle that a healthy body is a balanced one. Symptoms like insomnia, anxiety, night sweats, hot flashes, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, fatigue, and weight gain are all signals that your body is out of balance. Using acupuncture, herbal medicine, cupping, moxibustion, and dietary and lifestyle suggestions, we can restore your body’s balance, support your overall health, and relieve your menopausal symptoms.
A medical study at the University of Pittsburgh has found that acupuncture can decrease hot flashes by 35% and decrease insomnia by 50%
