Classical True Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can treat menopause

Menopause—pre, peri, or post-menopause—presents differently for each woman, but women are often treated the same way with Western medical therapies. Unlike Western Medicine, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine don’t label menopause as a particular "syndrome" or "condition," rather, it is a natural phase of life. At the Roots Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine Clinic, I will delve into understanding your unique presentation, and with truly individualized treatments, help bring your body back to homeostasis in the next phase of your life. I have found that Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) may misdiagnose the root condition for menopause if a woman doesn't fit into the "mold," and thus, I often treated the “incorrect” way during my TCM training. Now, however, through in-depth radial pulse diagnostics, True Acupuncture can help quickly minimize those annoying night sweats, hot flashes, and everything else that comes along with menopause. 

You may also see women grabbing tinctures, pills, and other natural supplements at stores to try to treat each menopausal symptom as it manifests. There are, indeed, a plethora of supplement choices offered in health food stores and, not only does it get confusing, supplements are not a one-size fits all solution either. Thus, not every supplement is necessarily right for you - they are marketed based only on the symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats, fogginess, etc; these formulas do not look past these symptoms to take care of the whole you.

Chinese Herbal Medicine works beautifully, with acupuncture, to support your system, naturally. However, even Chinese Herbal Medicine based on TCM theories has become quite symptomatic. In the Roots Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine Clinic, after proper evaluation via True Acupuncture pulse diagnosis and acupuncture treatments to better understand your unique case, Chinese herbal medicine may then be prescribed to treat the whole of you, while also addressing the symptoms you experience. 

My philosophy is to help you regain quality of life, quickly and naturally, with True Acupuncture and Chinese herbs
