Menopause and perimenopause can be a strange, transitional period in any woman’s life. A woman can experience menopause at any age between 30 and 60, but most commonly begins this transition in her 50’s. During this time, she can undergo a multitude of symptoms – and the experience of perimenopause and menopause is different for every woman.
Because a woman’s body is going through a rather severe change during this time, holistic techniques can help her as she battles symptoms associated with menopause and perimenopause like:
- Abnormal hair growth
- Hot flashes
- Hormone fluctuations
- Increased stress levels
- Irregular menstruation
- Memory loss
- Mood swings
- Night sweats
- Vaginal irritation or pain
- Weight fluctuations
Many menopause symptoms are caused by hormonal changes. Acupuncture and herbal medicine are especially useful when it comes to helping your body to regulate its own hormone balances – naturally. There are also techniques like moxibustion, essential oils, NET, and more which support acupuncture to holistically assist your body to either balance or increase levels of Qi as you transition through menopause.
Menopause is often not a simple process for those experiencing it – nor is it very comfortable. Many women end up taking hormonal supplements or other drugs to counteract menopause symptoms. The unique and holistic techniques provided by Traditional Chinese Medicine give women another tool to counter the pain, discomfort, and anguish that can accompany this extreme physical change.
