Every woman’s life is a beautiful and complex cycle. It’s made up of a sequence of intertwining life stages. If at any stage, the body is out of balance, you will start to experience signs or symptoms that the body uses to alert you that something is wrong. If hormone symptoms go untreated, a variety of issues can emerge and then symptoms start that are unpleasant and often difficult to correct.
I offer an integrative and natural approach to women’s health. In this clinic, we utilize advance diagnostic methods, lifestyle counseling, Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine and nutrition therapy to get to the root of your symptoms so that you get the relief that you want.
From the time girls are about 10-12 years old, they begin menstruation and the hormonal swings and complexities therein. Many girls experience acne, PMS, mood swings or weight gain or fluctuations.
This is an important time because it sets the stage for the rest of our lives. Hormone swings are natural and medical doctors often prescribe birth control pills to regulate the menstrual cycle and help with the symptoms experienced. While birth control can temporarily correct or help with the problems, it doesn’t permanently fix the root cause causing the issues.
Now is the time to balance the hormones and work with symptoms and help young women learn how to take care of themselves and their bodies.
If symptoms weren’t treated earlier in life, they typically get worse as a woman ages. However, if a woman is in balance, her menstruation will be regular and free of any problems. Whereas, if she is out of balance, her body will express that state through many types of issues: pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS), irregular or painful periods, PCOS, thyroid disorders, insomnia, infertility, to name just a few.
I am passionate about working with you with these conditions because I know what it’s like to feel healthy and balanced, but I also know how miserable it feels when hormones are out of whack. Together, we will go deeper into the root causes of these issues and re-balance your body to establish a strong foundation for health.
Menopause can be a huge physical and emotional transition for many women. As hormone levels drop, a wide range of symptoms are possible, including mood swings, irregular bleeding, hot flashes or night sweats, low libido, weight gain, fatigue, depression or insomnia.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s a good time to seek care. I treat your body as a whole, and support your entire endocrine system, supporting you through this life transition to be as pain-free and symptom-free as possible.
