Hormones produced by the human body act as messengers which oversee a wide range of body functions including sleep regulation, metabolism, body temperature, reproduction, emotional health, mental acuity, the immune system, and energy levels.
Hormonal imbalance is an issue that affects many women and can be experienced as a range of symptoms including low energy, fatigue, anxiety, irritability, skin conditions, sweating, and unexplained weight gain.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine hormonal balance is closely tied to the concept of Yin and Yang balance.
Although Yin and Yang are opposite in nature they depend on one another to function properly. Hormonal balance occurs when Yin and Yang interchange smoothly making room for change and transformation. Just as it is important for estrogen and progesterone to be balanced so too should the Yin – Yang ratio be balanced. If there is too much or too little Yin or Yang in the body, imbalances will occur, which leads to hormonal imbalance.
The goal of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is to restore balance in the body. The treatment is tailored to each individual.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine are safe and effective forms of treatment, which promote a healthy equilibrium.
Acupuncture has a regulating effect on the body and herbs have a hormone balancing effect on the body. They both play an important role in regulating the menstrual cycle, balancing emotions, and promoting healthy organ function.
