Traditional Chinese Medicine and Menopause

Menopause Treatments at Toronto Total Wellness Centre Myth: Women in Asia do not have symptoms of menopause.
Fact: Women in Asia have symptoms of menopause that are less frequent and less severe than women in both North America and Europe.

Genes, diet, lifestyle, and the regular inclusion of Traditional Chinese Medicine may all play a role in reducing the incidence and severity of menopausal symptoms.

Conventional Western medicine employs the use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for the treatment and/or prevention of menopause symptoms including osteoporosis. The side effects alone are often a reason not to follow this course of therapy. In addition, HRT and other harsh pharmaceuticals often do not achieve the desired results. Known side effects include severe stomach upset and gastrointestinal issues, and possible links to various cancers.

Acupuncture, herbal formulas and Traditional Chinese Medicine have been used for thousands of years for the treatment of menopause symptoms including hot flashes, night sweats, loss of bone density, heart palpitations, weight gain, mood swings, decreased sexual drive, and so on. By looking at the physical and emotional symptoms as a whole, an individual’s complete health pattern can be established to bring balance to the patient. Western studies have shown that Acupuncture and herbs can help balance hormones, easing the symptoms of menopause safely and gently.
