Women’s Health Program
Do you dread getting your period and the painful cramps, uncomfortable bloating, and grinding headaches that it brings?
Do you struggle with keeping and maintaining a healthy weight?
Are you trying to start a family but it’s taking longer than you expected?
Did menopause saddle you with unexpected hot flashes, mood swings, decreased libido, or anxiety?
Do you have days where you wish your body would just cooperate? If it’s not severe cramps and heavy bleeding, then it’s hot flashes and mood swings. If you’re not struggling with fertility issues, then you’re trying to regain your pre-pregnancy health. If you’re not experiencing monthly rounds of PMS, then your days are a fog of exhaustion that keeps you from being your best.
Pain pills work for only a few hours, if at all. Diet and exercise have helped, but not as much as you need. Fertility and in vitro treatments are expensive and carry unique risks. Hormone therapy can have dramatic side-effects and increase your risk of breast cancer. Modern science hasn’t discovered a pill to make your body cooperate, and you certainly can’t take time off from your life to lay in bed and wait for things to get better. That means you’re just going to have to ride it out, right?
There’s another way.
Women’s bodies are complex, which means women deserve holistic care from their healthcare providers. You deserve a professional approach that recognizes you’ve got obligations, responsibilities, and goals. You need a plan that understands you have a life to live.
The Clinical and Experimental Gynecology & Obstetrics published a study in which 11 subjects with painful periods were given acupuncture treatment for three period cycles. At the end of the three cycles, symptoms had all but disappeared in all 11 subjects, with the greatest decrease found in those suffering from dysmenorrheal.
Acupuncture and diagnostic testing, with personalized wellness plans are found to help menopausal women with hot flashes, night sweats, and flushing. A 12-month study by researchers at Wake Forest School of Medicine and Duke University School of Medicine found that subjects improved by almost 40%, and those changes lasted at least six months beyond the study. Most subjects saw improvement after three treatments!
