If your hormones have betrayed you, find refuge in acupuncture!

For women, one of our greatest health challenges is figuring out our hormones. We navigate our whole lives in different, fluctuating hormonal states — from puberty to pregnancy and then onto the years of menopause. And, these stages are still trying if everything goes well — the concern and utter frustration is when it compounds and ushers a great disharmony.

Hormones are responsible for a large number of biological processes and when they’ve gone rogue, it can be an upheaval; in your health. At Lee Acupuncture, we specialize in hormone balance in women to help you feel your best in every stage. Learn more about how acupuncture can help.

Women and Hormones

Many women are looking for an alternative to their hormone imbalances and Chinese medicine offers many benefits to women who are struggling with a myriad of issues.

Women in all stages of life are gravitating towards acupuncture for relief and common issues include:

  • Dealing with the aftermath of synthetic birth control
  • Painful periods
  • PMS/PMDD
  • Perimenopause/menopause

As women begin to talk more openly about their cycles, they begin to connect and see how hormones are related to their whole body. Hormone disruption can affect you in the following ways:

  • Acne
  • PCOS
  • Fatigue
  • Moodiness
  • Low libido
  • Thinning hair
  • Missed periods
  • Migraine headaches
  • Increased food cravings
  • Tooth and gum sensitivity

Many things can be attributed to your cycle, especially if you experience it cyclically.

Is Acupuncture Beneficial For Hormones?

Acupuncture has been highlighted for helping women with infertility but it also helps balance hormones.

There are an infinite amount of factors that affect our hormones and acupuncture addresses them beautifully because it works on the individual, getting to the root. Acupuncture can tackle hormone imbalances relatively quickly with most patients seeing results in two to three months, whereas the western medical system can take much longer.   

Pain in your cycle may be common but it’s not normal.

Somewhere along the line, women have been taught to just deal with their cycles and not complain about cramps or monthly migraines and this is just not productive. If your hormones are getting in the way of your daily life, then there is probably an issue.

Once you’ve identified this hormone-related health concern, seek out an acupuncturist. This health issue may be as minor as digestive issues and acupuncture can easily bring back balance and restore your digestion, which is incredibly helpful and ends the cycle of discomfort.  

Acupuncture in Newport Beach

There is so much to say about a great acupuncturist, and remember this is so much more comprehensive than dry needling.

When you’re looking to address your hormone issues, look for a practitioner who is a licensed acupuncturist and fuses a variety of treatment modalities such as acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and functional medicine.   

The goal of acupuncture is to align systems that are unbalanced and restore them until eventually, you don’t need an acupuncturist anymore!
