About Menopausal Symptoms
Menopausal changes typically affect women in the age range of 40-50 years old. Perimenopause and menopause are closely related in symptoms, but the differences are significant in identifying which stages of change the body is experiencing.
In general, women experience menopause in diverse ways. The sudden decrease in estrogen and progesterone levels may leave women struggling to maintain their functional everyday health, while others may live life symptom-free. Lifestyle habits such as diet, stress, exercise, rest, substance use, and hydration also contribute to hormonal offset.
Research has proven that the use of Chinese herbal medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies, such as acupuncture, are effective in relieving the symptoms of menopause. Acupuncture and herbal formulas are able to regulate hormones, temperature, weight gain, emotions, mood, and mental function, as well as improve the quality of sleep, and overall wellness. Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture successfully stabilize the body back to optimal health by relaxing the nervous system to correct the brain from hyperfunctioning. When the nervous system is regulated, other systems can then function appropriately and diminish the symptoms of illness.
