Menopause

Menopause effects over 50% of women with symptoms that affects your daily lives, most commonly

  • Hot Flushes
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Insomnia

  • Exercise
  • Stop Smoking
  • Reduce Stress Levels
  • Black Cohosh ( herb that helps with hot flushes, sweating, insomnia, anxiety
  • Progesterone Cream
  • Juicing
  • Acupuncture

Over the years, I have found that Acupuncture and Herbs, not only a natural treatment for Menopause, is a very effective way to reduce if not eliminate all of the symptoms above, so when Menopause symptoms begin and Acupuncture and Herbs are used, the transition becomes more manageable. Acupuncture is a great method in removing heat (sweats, anxiety, dry mouth and irritability) from the body, it is also great for insomnia.

Together Acupuncture and Herbs are fantastic in helping Menopause and recreating balance and helping eliminating symptoms. The great thing is that this is completely natural without side effects. It is also a fraction of the cost of Hrt etc. In my experience, I see a massive improvement in a few sessions.  I have also found that Acupuncture decreases the need for medication, helps you to cope better and helps with your overall well- being.

Recently, one of my regular clients said to me ‘ Last week, my husbands breathing really bothered me, I said to him ‘ Couldn’t you breathe any louder?’ to which he replied ‘so, I can’t even breathe now!’, that’s when I realised that everything was irritating me and knew that I was completely irrational, so we spoke about Acupuncture/herbs would help this area and other symptoms associated with Menopause.

Male Menopause – Yes, men also suffer from similar symptoms later in life, including anxiety, aches and pains, sweating, decreased libido, depression, fatigue etc, there are a number of contributors involved including stress, too much alcohol, overheating of the testes, smoking to name a few.
