Many women think that painful periods, horrible mood swings, and breast tenderness are an inevitable part of each monthly cycle. The truth is that hormonal imbalances, stress, and poor dietary choices can all aggravate PMS. The flip side is that bringing your hormones back into balance, changing your diet, and finding healthy stress outlets can allow you an easy, pain free period. With regular acupuncture treatments, most women notice a change within 1-3 cycles.
Menopause is a hot topic these days with more and more women wanting alternatives to hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help alleviate menopausal symptoms. By nourishing the "Yin" or the cooling system of the body, hot flashes, night sweats, and irritability are reduced. Avoiding "hot" foods such as chili, salsa, nightshades, sugar and coffee can also help. You don't want to add more heat to a system that is already overheated.
