How Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help with Menopausal Side Effects.

“The hot flashes and the night sweats and being tired and irritable, and not being myself … they began to disappear after acupuncture,” Julia M.

“I feel more relaxed, improved energy level, sleeping better, less anxiety, improved mood, and other improvements,” Anna F.

Japanese women simply do not suffer anything like the severity of hot flushes compared to women in the West.  The Japanese don’t have equivalent words for ”hot flashes”. So what is the reason for this? The answer is very simple. They have a completely different attitude to the menopause, a different lifestyle; they count on different and natural approach for help such as herbs and/or acupuncture, and most importantly a different, healthier, diet.

In the West hormone replacement therapy has long been used to treat menopause side effects. The new research hat published in prestigious medical magazine-JAMA confirms that long-term hormonal therapy may increase the risk of heart disease and breast cancer for many postmenopausal women. Don’t risk your life…just to get rid of your hot flashes.

But when an alarming study warned the therapy may be harmful, women abruptly stopped taking it and many women again started experience the symptoms of menopause such as:

Hot Flashes Depression
Night Sweats Insomnia
Mood Swings Vaginal Dryness
Anxiety Urinary Changes
Palpitations Bladder infections
Osteoporosis Frequent urination

Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic of San Francisco Bay Area offers a comprehensive and natural healing program for suffers from Menopausal side effects.

Menopause is a natural occurrence in a woman’s reproductive life.

So why not treat it in a natural way?

Healing Food Consultation.

The biggest influence on severity of Menopausal symptoms is believed to be dietary. Soy is one of the major sources of protein in Japan and it is high in phytoestrogen, which is a much milder, safer, and natural form of the hormones found in HRT (hormone replacement therapy). Soy will not stop severe cases of hot flushes, even in Japan, but it does help to reduce the problems caused by the less severe episodes. Japanese diet and food supplement that have been in their culture for hundreds of years also play a major role. Our Western world has only recently started recognizing the importance of these supplements and dietary modifications.

Herbal Medicine.

At the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic of San Francisco, we have a potent, lab tested and well resourced nutritional supplementation program including antioxidants, minerals and microelements, herbs, vitamins, amino acids, essential fatty acids, enzymes, and probiotics (friendly intestinal flora).

Damp Water may naturally help heal Candida-yeast overgrowth, chronic liver disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, immune system disorders, skin problems, and assist in weight management.

Acupuncture for Menopause

Acupuncture has been used to treat menopausal symptoms for thousands of years with excellent results in easing these symptoms without any side effects.  By stimulating specific points on the body, called “acupoints”, acupuncture restores the harmonious balance of qi, (pronounced “chee”), to the body. The individual acupoints correlate to particular organs or energy pathways, (called “meridans”), in the body, and once stimulated produce some of the body’s natural hormones and painkillers.

Research shows that acupuncture can trigger the release of endorphins, the hormone which is partially responsible for our sense of well-being as well as having a pain-relieving effect. Recent research suggests acupuncture is also responsible for the release serotonin, which helps in menopausal symptoms such as abdominal pain or cramping, and changes in mood and sleep.

The principle of acupuncture is to strengthen the individual’s body and re-establish a harmonious state of the body. Acupuncture treatment regulates unstable hormone levels during menopause.

Psychological disturbances during menopause period.

For many years, a decline in estrogen at the time of menopause was associated with an increased risk of depression, anxiety and other mood disturbances. There are many possible reasons why a woman may experience symptoms such as these at mid-life and beyond. Fluctuating hormone levels can affect the level of neurotransmitters (chemical substances in the brain) known to regulate moods in the brain. Additionally, disruption of normal sleep patterns associated with estrogen decline can lead to chronic sleep deprivation and mood swings. Psycho-social factors can play an integral role as well.

At Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic we can help you with Stress Related Disorders using natural, non-drug approach such as medical hypnosis and hypnotherapy, meditation, herbs, supplements and acupuncture.
