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

Why do Japanese women not suffer from the severity of hot flushes compared to women in the West? Why is there no equivalent in Japanese for “hot flashes”? The answer is very simple. They have a completely different attitude to the menopause, and a different lifestyle. They count on different and natural approach for help such as herbs and acupuncture, and most importantly a different, healthier diet.

In the West, hormone replacement therapy has long been used to treat menopausal side effects. But when an alarming study warned that the therapy may be harmful, women abruptly stopped taking the medication and many started experiencing the symptoms of menopause again. The symptoms include:

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). We implement unique combinations of these products for different kinds of disorders and customize them to patients’ needs.

Some of the herbal formulas that we have successfully used to help with menopausal symptoms include:

Balance for Female is an herbal medicine formulation which contains a blend of many herbs developed to ease the transition and provide effective relief from the onset and duration of typical menopausal symptoms. Balance for Female has been developed as a natural alternative support product, formulated with the best-known combination of high-potency phytoestrogen botanicals which have a long empirical history and scientifically researches of relieving menopausal symptoms, and supporting the body’s hormonal balance.

It also helps cut the cravings for sugar, coffee, tobacco, and alcohol.

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.
