Acupuncture and herbal medicine can alleviate many menopausal symptoms by stimulating endocrine systems to rebalance hormone production and reduce a wide variety of menopausal disorders. Recent studies show that acupuncture is a safer and effective way to treat women with menopause, especially breast cancer survivors (University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing researchers).
Conventionally, Western medicine has used hormone replacement therapy (HRT) as the primary treatment for menopausal symptoms. However, not all women can tolerate HRT and some experience many distressing effects. The Journal of the American Medical Association showed that HRT might increase the risk of heart disease, breast cancer, stroke and blood clots, which prompts many women to seek complementary solutions. Acupuncture and herbal medicine offer an alternative, more successful approach to dealing with menopause, including freeing blocked circulation while balancing energy, blood flow, yin (body fluids) and hormones.
According to Chinese medicine, to reverse signs of menopause and aging, it is important to build kidney energy (renal and adrenal function). Acupuncture stimulates the flow of intrinsic energy in the body, enhancing blood circulation in the kidneys. Herbal medicines restore kidney energy and gently correct underling deficiencies. These increases in performance and kidney function support both the endocrine and immune systems and help them to work harmoniously to control and remove the symptoms of menopause. Additionally, building kidney energy will enhance moisture production, replenishing tissue throughout the entire body and improving beauty, vitality and youthfulness.
