Treating Menopause Symptoms in Asheville
Many women in Asheville have heard about my ability to help them transition through menopause without symptoms. Menopause symptoms and perimenopause symptoms like depression, anxiety, insomnia, mood swings, irritability, hot flashes and night sweats, can all be balanced and alleviated with Acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
I recommend trying our herbal remedies and acupuncture for menopause symptoms before trying estrogen and progesterone, or other hormone solutions. Plant based solutions, or phytoestrogens, are often excellent for signs and symptoms of menopause. Some of the best gynecologists in China gave me their personal herbal formulas that had the most effective result for alleviating the symptoms of menopause. The herbal formulas are truly remarkable for menopause treatment!
One of the most common conditions I treat at the Blue Ridge Acupuncture Clinic in Asheville, is menopausal symptoms. For some perhaps lucky women, menopause is no problem, but for other women menopause can cause significant changes in their bodies and their minds, causing menopausal insomnia, mood swings etc. Chinese medicine takes the approach that when a woman is deeply balanced in body and mind, menopausal symptoms are not severe.
Menopause and Acupuncture Research
A major study done in Taiwan has recently confirmed that acupuncture is effective at reducing the symptoms of menopause. The Journal of Chinese Medicine reported on the study by stating:
“A meta-analysis from Taiwanese authors confirms that acupuncture can improve symptoms in women experiencing menopause. Twelve studies (869 participants) met the authors’ inclusion criteria. The results of the analysis showed that acupuncture significantly reduced the frequency and severity of hot flushes. In addition, acupuncture was shown to significantly improve psychological, somatic, urogenital symptoms and vasomotor symptoms. Acupuncture’s beneficial effects on hot flush frequency and severity were found to persist for up three months. (Effects of acupuncture on menopause-related symptoms and quality of life in women on natural menopause: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. (1)”
Some of the most common and problematic symptoms of menopause are hot flashes and night sweats. Unfortunately many women do not know that Chinese herbal medicine can dramatically reduce hot flashes and night sweats.
When a woman has hot flashes and night sweats they often also suffer from sleep disorders. Menopausal insomnia is very common and I utilize acupuncture and specific Chinese herbal formulas alleviate the insomnia and to help a woman cure her hot flashes and her night sweats.
Once night sweats and hot flashes are brought under control, and the hormones are balanced naturally, a woman’s sleep issues will dramatically improve.
