Menopause is anything but musical when your cheeks are redder than a Bali sunset, your make-up is dripping off your chin and your hair looks like you’ve been caught in a downpour. And what’s romantic about the cooling caress of the bedroom air-conditioner when your partner has other activities in mind?
Menopause isn’t just a minor discomfort. It affects your life on many levels, and its intensity can be overwhelming. So where do you turn when you’re desperate for relief, yet have read enough about the correlation between breast cancer and hormone therapy to want to give that avenue a very wide berth?
Acupuncture therapy has proved an effective natural treatment for the symptoms of menopause.
Positive kidney function is vital to good health, and absolutely essential when women enter that uncertain and difficult time known as ‘change of life’, with its many irritating and debilitating symptoms. Hot flushes, according to traditional Chinese medicine, are a result of the imbalance of the yin and yang functions of the kidneys, and deficiencies of blood and the life essence ‘Qi’. These are all natural effects of the body aging, coupled with the steady decrease of female hormones.
Acupuncture therapy not only helps restore these irregularities but triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers, to provide relief from hot flushes. At the same time, it also relieves the symptoms of anxiety by boosting energy to elevate mood and a sense of wellbeing.
Studies have shown that a regime of twice weekly acupuncture treatments for three to four weeks, followed by weekly for another three to four weeks, then a regular monthly maintenance program should have you back in control of your life and your happiness, and keep you that way.
So why wait? Make that call now. It will make your change your life more enjoyable.
