Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine for Menopause
Menopause, a dreaded season in many women's lives does not seem to carry nearly the same effects for women in China. The difference is almost 65%, with 75% of women in America-for example, going through severe discomforts as opposed to only 10% in Asia.
Traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture (TCM) are natural and effective in treating the discomforts brought about by Menopause in aging women, whose benefits are lasting and do not include the side effects of artificial hormone replacement.
A combination of diet, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine has brought this stark difference between Asian aging women and Canadian and North American aging women. However, these treatments are available to all, and should be taken up for treating Menopausal discomforts.
At BodaHealth, we have been practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture for years, successfully treating Women’s health. The results of these treatments are both effective and lasting. Women under the treatment report a reduction or elimination of hot flashes. The effects of decreased libido are also soon eliminated as the body begins to balance its own hormones.
In case you are experiencing frequent fatigue, mood swings, unexplained weight gain, insomnia and night sweats, you are a prime candidate for Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, which use the body's natural healing abilities to bring about lasting release and graceful aging. The holistic approach provided by TCM combines nutrition, acupuncture, Chinese herbs and massage therapy to bring your body into balance and ensure that you are soon restored to optimum health.
An example of a dietary substitute that is leading to great results for maintaining hormonal balance is the use of a seaweed to help with estrogen metabolism. The presence of high levels of strong estrogens have been correlated to a higher incidence of breast cancer among women. When phytoestrogen containing food is consumed-a regular practice in Chinese diets, the weak plant estrogens bind to the body's receptors and displace strong estrogens, which are harmlessly discharged from the body.
Studies also indicate that these phytoestrogens reduce the adverse effects associated with menpause and the regular supply of phytoestrogens forms a foundational part of fighting adverse menopausal symptoms.
