For many women, perimenopause and menopause can be a difficult time of transition. The symptoms associated with the hormonal changes in your body can be uncomfortable, overwhelming, and for some women, embarrassing. If you have not had children, this may also be a time when feelings of grief or loss come to the surface.
There has been much discussion in recent years about the safety and potential negative side effects of hormone replacement therapy, especially if taken long-term. As a result, many women are looking for alternative options for managing their menopausal symptoms.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs have been shown to be natural, effective treatment for menopausal symptoms including:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Poor concentration and memory
- Emotional difficulty – feeling anxious, ‘short-fused’, depressed
- Menstrual irregularities – heavy periods, frequent spotting
- Low libido and vaginal dryness
