Why do Japanese women not suffer from the severity of hot flushes compared to women in the West? Why is there no equivalent in Japanese for "hot flashes"? The answer is very simple. They have a completely different attitude to the menopause, and a different lifestyle. They count on different and natural approach for help such as herbs and acupuncture, and most importantly a different, healthier diet.

 

In the West, hormone replacement therapy has long been used to treat menopausal side effects. But when an alarming study warned that the therapy may be harmful, women abruptly stopped taking the medication and many started experiencing the symptoms of menopause again. The symptoms include:  Hot Flashes Depression Night Sweats Insomnia Mood Swings Vaginal Dryness Anxiety Urinary Changes Palpitations Bladder infections Osteoporosis  Frequent urination.

Healing Food Consultation. The biggest influence on severity of Menopausal symptoms is believed to be dietary. Fish and Soy are the major sources of protein in Japan.  Women in Japan are mostly asymptomatic during menopause.  They generally do not suffer hot flashes, dry skin, insomnia, etc... The Omega 3's in the fish oil have an important roll in hormone utilization and synthesis. In Japan, they eat soy fermented and that makes a big difference in the way it interacts with hormonal balance in the body. 

Please see important information about Soy and the safe way to consume it here. 

 

A major area of focus for a smooth menopausal transition is the health of your adrenals.  During menopause, when your ovaries decrease in the production of sex hormones, if your adrenal glands are healthy, they will produce the sex hormones required by your body to stay well and healthy.  The Adrenal Stress Index test is key to evaluating adrenal function and identifying imbalances that need to be corrected.

Acupuncture for Menopause Acupuncture has been used to treat menopausal symptoms for thousands of years with excellent results in easing these symptoms without any side effects.  By stimulating specific points on the body, called "acupoints", acupuncture restores the harmonious balance of qi, (pronounced "chee"), to the body. The individual acupoints correlate to particular organs or energy pathways, (called "meridans"), in the body, and once stimulated produce some of the body's natural hormones and painkillers. Research shows that acupuncture can trigger the release of endorphins, the hormone which is partially responsible for our sense of well-being as well as having a pain-relieving effect. Recent research suggests acupuncture is also responsible for the release serotonin, which helps in menopausal symptoms such as abdominal pain or cramping, and changes in mood and sleep. The principle of acupuncture is to strengthen the individual's body and re-establish a harmonious state of the body. Acupuncture treatment regulates unstable hormone levels during menopause.  Psychological disturbances during menopause period. For many years, a decline in estrogen at the time of menopause was associated with an increased risk of depression, anxiety and other mood disturbances. There are many possible reasons why a woman may experience symptoms such as these at mid-life and beyond. Fluctuating hormone levels can affect the level of neurotransmitters (chemical substances in the brain) known to regulate moods in the brain. Additionally, disruption of normal sleep patterns associated with estrogen decline can lead to chronic sleep deprivation and mood swings. Psycho-social factors can play an integral role as well. At Miami Holistic Center Clinic we can help you with Stress Related Disorders using natural, non-drug approach such as medical hypnosis and hypnotherapy, meditation, herbs, supplements and acupuncture.
