Countless women in Joliet, Wheaton and around the Chicago area seek natural menopause treatment when hot flashes, depression, or other symptoms of menopause begin to negatively impact their lives. A normal part of the aging process, menopause usually happens between the ages of 48 and 55, although some women enter this phase of their lives at an earlier age. Additionally, women who have a hysterectomy that involves removal of the ovaries will begin to experience menopausal symptoms almost immediately.
Menopause occurs when the menstrual cycle stops because the ovaries no longer release an egg. Estrogen and progesterone are hormones produced by the ovaries that regulate ovulation and menstruation. When women begin going through “the change,” these hormones become unbalanced, which results in many of the negative and sometimes life-changing symptoms. We provide menopause therapy that helps promote health and vitality while reducing or alleviating the symptoms so you can enjoy a fulfilling life once again. While this natural process is a part of life, it does not mean you have to live with the often debilitating symptoms for years on end. Using Chinese medicine, our goal is to gracefully transition you into your next stage of life.
More and more women are turning to alternative medicine for the treatment of menopause symptoms and women’s health issues, particularly after recent concerns regarding the safety of hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
At Eastern Healing in Wheaton and Joliet, we offer acupuncture, herbal medicine, and other Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities as safe and natural options for women with moderate to severe menopausal symptoms who wish to avoid HRT.
