Menopause is a natural and healthy transformation. It doesn’t need to be hard, and with acupuncture, proper herbal treatment, and other natural treatments, Menopause can be a smooth transition in a women’s life. During menopause time, the woman’s body goes through a hormonal process for about 12 months (with treatment, it can be much shorter), and the period stops. It is nature’s way to help the women not spend valuable blood on the monthly period and make sure only younger, healthier women will have babies. Of course, a 50-year-old woman now is much more healthy and vital than a 50-year old women thousands of years ago.

Menopause is not a disease!

As mentioned, Menopause is a natural healthy process. In some cultures, menopause women are celebrated and considered wiser and more powerful. We can treat menopause symptoms effectively with natural medicine to ease the transition.

This transformation in the woman’s hormonal system can take time, and the body is adjusting. There might be some symptoms, in the same way, that the hormonal changes of puberty have symptoms when a young woman is becoming fertile. Different women experience different symptoms with different severity; it is possible to ease the menopause symptoms with natural medicine.

Menopause symptoms:

  • Irregular period
  • hot flushes
  • night sweating
  • heat in the palms, feet, and chest
  • Dryness of the skin
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Sleep problems
  • Severe Mood changes
  • irritability, anger
  • Weight gain
  • change in metabolism
  • Thinning hair
  • Loss of breast fullness

Menopause Emotional Transformation

It has shown that there will be fewer symptoms in cultures where Menopause is considered a “positive” transition. For some women, Menopause will be experienced as a relief – no need to handle the monthly periods, no need to take birth control, etc. For others – there might be a sense of loss regarding Menopause, whether it’s conscious or unconscious.

The negative emotional aspect of Menopause:

  • Loss of fertility and the ability to have more children, If there is still a dream of another child.
  • Loss of youth.
  • For a woman considering herself primarily a mother – it can be a loss of general meaning in life.
  • Fear of the body getting old.
  • Fear of not being attractive sexually.
  • Overwhelmed by the symptoms, mood swings, and hormonal changes.

 

Menopause treatment

Why is Chinese Medicine so Important for Menopause?

Understanding this part will help you understand the importance of Chinese Medicine treatment for Menopause. The treatment of acupuncture and herbs will help reduce the symptoms and act as an Anti Aging treatment in this important transformation.

Yin and Yang (the famous Chinese symbol) are also the body’s building blocks. Yin is all the flesh, blood, and fluids. Yang is the energy, the fire, and the movements.

For a young, healthy woman, her level of Yang and Yin is whole. To put in numbers, Yin is at 100, and Yang is at 100. Every month with the period, the woman loses Yin with the blood and eggs. Every pregnancy, there is more loss of Yin. So when the woman is 50, her Yang is still at 100, and her Yin is at 50. This is called a yin deficiency. This means that there is a lot of heat (Yang) and minimal fluids(Yin) to cool it. Like a water kettle that, when it is boiling with very little water, it will boil faster and make a lot of steam and heat. Hence – the hot flushes, sweating, irritability, insomnia, etc., are all symptoms of heat.

If not treated- eventually – the Yang will be used, and both Yin and Yang will reach 50. there will be no symptoms of Menopause, but their general health, youth, and vitality will be half than when she was young.

If treated with herbs and acupuncture: the treatment will nourish the Yin. So eventually, the Yin will be at 70 and the yang to0. There will be no symptoms, much faster than without treatment, and the general health and vitality level will be higher. The Menopause treatment is then used as an opportunity for anti-aging and increasing health.  

Acupuncture for Menopause

Before treating Menopause, or pre-menopause with acupuncture, a Traditional Chineses Medicine  Diagnosis is made. There is one common cause of Menopause: Kidney Yin deficiency – But there are many variations of the root cause that needs to be considered before the treatment. With Balance Methos Acupuncture, reducing the symptoms may be seen after 3-5 treatments. The acupuncture treatment will answer physical symptoms such as hot flushes, insomnia, and mental and emotional imbalance. To complete the treatment, combining it with Chinese Herbal Medicine is recommended.

 

 

supplements for menopause

 

Supplements for Menopause

Many products are on the market for menopause symptoms, but most of them aren’t as effective as the Traditional Chinese Medicine Herbs. The only “problem” with TCM herbs for Menopause is that they need to be given after a proper TCM diagnosis of symptoms, tongue, and pulse. The efficiency of the herbs comes from their accuracy. The fact that “over-the-counter products for menopause” can sometimes help, sometimes not, and sometimes make it worst – is because they are not prescribed accurately.

The Chinese Medicine Supplements for Menopause are usually formulas of different herbs and minerals that consider the Yin and Yang in different organs of the body and other symptoms. Some formulas are given in the acute phase of intense symptoms, and others can be taken for the long run as anti-aging and balancing supplements.

The Medical treatment for Menopause

The main medical treatment for Menopause is hormonal replacement therapy. Even though it looks like an easy fix, it risks side effects such as cancer and more. Considering that the natural treatment results are good,  and the body goes back to balance after a few months anyway, it may be an unnecessary risk unless it is a severe case. The body is constantly adjusting the level of the hormones in the body. Medicine hasn’t reached that level of sophistication yet, and the medication is not sensitive enough to adjust to these changes. It will never be as perfect as the natural balance.

Pre Menopause Treatment

Often women will come to the clinic to treat pre-menopausal symptoms. The same ideas of diagnosis and treatment are done. If the woman has pre-menopausal at a younger age, treatment can reduce the symptoms, bring back the period, and balance the hormonal system.
