Unraveling the “Healthy Food” Paradox

Menopause is a normal, transformative process that is experienced by 80% of the population. Like any life process that includes change, it can be followed by significant discomfort. Most of the time, menopause symptoms affect women in their 40-50s, physically, emotionally, and mentally. 360 offers excellent treatments for delivering hormonal balancing and allowing women to navigate menopause symptoms and help with drug-free relief. Numerous studies have revealed that Menopausal Hormone Therapy (MHT) or Hormone Replacement increases cancer risk and, more specifically, breast cancer (https://academic.oup.com/jnci/article/103/4/296/896054). And the risks multiply the longer these treatments are applied. We treat menopausal hot flashes effectively without any drugs or side effects.

Signs to Look For

The period in which a woman begins encountering symptoms associated with menopause is the pre-menopausal or “perimenopausal” state. This point can open over a few months or up to several years; the usual amount of time is about 4 years. Although most women begin experiencing perimenopause in their 40s, some can start having irregular periods as early as their 30s or as late as their 50s. 

Perimenopausal symptoms and signs can include:

  1.   Anxiety, Irritability, & Depression  
  2.   Difficulty Sleeping  
  3.   Headaches  
  4.   Higher “bad” Cholesterol and Lower “good” Cholesterol  
  5.   Hot Flashes & Night Sweats  
  6.   Irregular Menstrual Periods  
  7.   Low Libido  
  8.   Urinary Incontinence  
  9.   Vaginal Dryness  
  10.   Weight Gain  

These issues can feel remarkably disconcerting and disruptive. 

Acupuncture & Supplement Treatment

Studies (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30782712) have proven that acupuncture treatments can reduce the frequency of hot flashes and produce significantly positive results. In addition to relieving hot flashes, acupuncture also increases life quality in many other ways: eliminating headaches and other body aches, alleviating anxiety and depression, and improving sleep quality. At 360 Jasmine Acupuncture and Wellness Center, we offer customized herbal formulae that support the body’s hormonal balance and menopause symptom relief. In many ways, the effects of menopause are not quantifiable but are more emotional in nature. 

Acupuncture for PMS Symptoms and Menopause

Physically, a woman goes through numerous notable changes over the years, and many complex factors come into play. If a woman’s body is out of balance from trauma, stress, illness, injury, diet, environment, etc.– she can encounter difficulties with her female organ functions. Like painful periods, irregular periods, cysts, fibroids, and endometriosis are all typical conditions. 

Women’s health issues can be easily addressed, at every stage of life, with acupuncture and the right kind of food and lifestyle choices. If you’re interested in finding and partnering with a genuinely caring and knowledgeable healthcare practitioner, who practices a lifestyle that helps her achieve optimal Health at 50, never suffered through years of PMS, or years of menopausal symptoms, either. Unfortunately, few women realize there is an alternative to using pain relief medicines, oral contraceptives, and hormone replacement to manage these symptoms. The drugs do not offer you a real solution to the problems; they only mask them. As women, we often are expected to accept these problems and learn to cope. But why settle for that when we have the means to correct them quickly and painlessly?

Please come see me, my name is Dr. Jasmine, and I promise you will not be disappointed; I have hundreds of clients that have been absolutely amazed by what we do at 360. 

Stay Healthy and Stay Strong.
