In women, the balance between estrogen and progesterone is what ensures normal female reproductive ability and regulates menstrual health. When there is an imbalance between these two hormones disorders such as irregular menstruation, infertility, endometriosis and menopause syndrome occur. Hormone balancing acupuncture aims to create a natural and healthy balance between estrogen and progesterone based on the idea of yin and yang. When something is wrong with the body, there is a Yin-Yang imbalance and as a result often an estrogen/progesterone imbalance.
Acupuncture works to restore the yin/yang balance in the body therefore also treating the hormone imbalance.
Acupuncture can be used to:
- Help thyroid gland function properly
- Regulate communication between the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis to help the ovaries function properly
- Restore a healthy balance of estrogen and progesterone
- Promote ovulation
- Increase blood flow to the uterus
Hormone balancing acupuncture is very useful in helping regulate nonexistent, irregular, and painful periods as well as helping with fertility.
