WHAT ARE MENSTRUAL COMPLAINTS?
More and more women suffer nowadays from hormonal imbalances. The causes can vary for everyone but the most common contributing factors are stress, poor nutrition, lifestyle choices, pregnancy, aging, genetics and environmental exposure to toxins.
If you suffer from menstrual complaints like painful, too heavy, irregular or missing periods, clots, breast tenderness, acne or mood swings, most probably your hormones are out of balance. Infertility, low libido, vaginal dryness, excessive weight gain, brain fog, night sweats also indicate an imbalance in your hormonal levels.
HOW CAN ACUPUNCTURE HELP YOUR MENSTRUAL COMPLAINTS?
Acupuncture is an effective way to address hormonal imbalances. It will bring your body back to homeostasis (balance) and unblock its built-in ability to repair and self-regulate.
Depending on how long you have the symptoms for and how severe they are, it might take up to 3 menstrual cycles or 10-12 treatments to bring your hormonal system back to balance. The first 4 treatments will be planned within the first 2 weeks. The following treatments will be first once per week and later once in two weeks.
After you are back in balance we will set up maintenance appointments once every few weeks. This might sound like a lot, however, please keep in mind that things like stress, environmental exposure to toxins will most probably still be around and affect you and the purpose of the maintenance treatments is to help your body navigate those without disrupting your hormonal system.
