Hormones play such a large role in a woman’s life. We navigate period pain, monthly migraines or mood swings, irregular or periods, hormonal skin issues, fertility challenges, and menopause. Aside from being unpleasant to experience, these issues can really impact career and family life.
If you’ve been to your GP about these, or any other hormonally driven issue, chances are the only option available to you was to take synthetic hormones, either in the form of the contraceptive pill or hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Neither of which fix the root cause of the problem, and both of which come with the possibility of undesirable side effects.
If you’re looking for an alternative the excellent news is: women’s health is an area where Chinese medicine really shines. Through diet and lifestyle advice, chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture, we can tailor a specific program that can help reduce environmental and emotional stresses and get those hormones in check! From puberty, through fertility, pregnancy and birth, and during menopause, your Chinese medicine practitioner can help as you navigate the journey. If you’d like to discuss how Chinese medicine may help your individual circumstances, please contact us to arrange a 15 minute complimentary consultation.
