Acupuncture for Adrenal Fatigue

Do you feel tired? Rundown? Brain Fog? Poor Memory? 

Do you feel exhausted during the day, but can't seem to fall asleep at night? 

Do you have anxiety? Heart Palpitations? 

Other unexplained, nebulous symptoms that your doctor just tells you is "stress" or "depression."

Your adrenals may be malfunctioning. You may be making too much cortisol the "stress" hormone, or not burning it off fast enough, or your adrenals may no longer able to properly control cortisol release, or maybe unable to make enough at all.

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine can be a great help to treat adrenal fatigue, adrenal insufficiency, and general hormone balance.

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine can be very effective at helping to balance hormone levels and aid in the control, and even reversal, of metabolic disorders like Type 2 Diabetes. 

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine help to reduce inflammation, increase circulation to your organs, and help to balance hormones - when employed properly, this can help to lose fat, balance blood sugars, and even increase insulin sensitivity.

Each case is going to be unique, and thus will be treated differently - a good, thorough health history intake is required to figure out what is going on in your body that is contributing to your metabolic disorder. 

From there, we can put together a treatment plan to help you with your health goals!

Acupuncture for Menopause


Acupuncture treatment for menopause is very effective! 

Hot flashes, Night Sweats, Weight Gain, Depression, Anxiety, Vaginal Dryness, Vaginal Dystrophy, Discomfort with Sex, Low Libido, and more....

We can help!

When women near the end of their childbearing years, their bodies no longer need the same amount of sex hormones, so their ovaries shut down their hormonal functions, but some of these hormones are still needed. It then becomes the adrenal glands' job to produce these sex hormones, the problem is that we lead such stressful lives that our adrenal glands are tired and unable to take on this additional job... so we end up with hormone imbalance. 

This is further compounded with:

-metabolic dysregulation because of too many processed foods

-too much body fat (hormones, especially estrogen, "hide" in body fat)

-endocrine disruptors in our food and water (they can bind to estrogen receptors and wreak havoc)

So our job is to help your body regulate itself by getting rid of those endocrine disruptors ("toxins"), regulating metabolism, and helping the adrenals to function properly. 

Most women will find tremendous benefit with acupuncture alone, and some women will need the aid of Chinese Herbs to make a significant difference - but we typically are able to find a solution to help women feel MUCH better. 

Menopause should be a smooth transition! If you are experiencing negative symptoms related to menopause, look at acupuncture and Chinese Medicine as options to help you feel better!
