Menopause Symptom Relief Through Acupuncture?
It’s a fact, many of the symptoms of menopause and pre-menopause can actually be relieved through chiropractic manipulation and acupuncture. Pre-menopausal and peri-menopausal women generally have a decreasing estrogen level but the abrupt starting and stopping of the system that produces estrogen is what causes symptoms…like hot flashes insomnia, irritability, decreased sexual desire, bladder shrinkage, memory/concentration loss and more.
Dietary changes can go a long way in relieving symptoms. Yams and beans/legumes can help. Supplements like Evening Primrose Oil and vitamin E in dry form do too. Phyto-estrogens can increase natural estrogen levels..these are taken in by consuming green leafy vegetables.
Chiropractic and acupuncture treatment treats both the underlying cause and symptoms by:
- Increases endorphin levels
- Increases natural estrogen production
- Increases tranquility
- Increases flow of the body’s bio electric circuity
