Who has never been bothered by mood swings or the feeling that your body isn’t responding to you like it used to?
Hormones are responsible for regulating our body and mood, often excessive fatigue, weight gain or even physical pain can be blamed for a hormonal mismatch.
Acupuncture has several ways to take care of these problems, using the needles to stimulate the glands responsible for hormone production, helping to regulate your hormonal profile, and, consequently, combating other related harm.
Below, I quote how acupuncture can act on our hormones and bring benefits:
1- Regulating hormones during menopause
During menopause, the woman needs to do a closer hormonal follow-up, replacing the hormones she needs.
Acupuncture helps during this process by stimulating the release of chemicals. In addition, it also stimulates the nervous system and promotes balance in the body.
Acupuncture in menopause helps to reduce physical discomforts and emotional tensions, common in this phase of a woman’s life.
2- Treatment for fertility
Both in men and women, it is important that hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, prolactin, among others, have normalized levels. Acupuncture is able to act on the hormonal system to balance it, in order to stimulate the body to produce more of the hormones that are lacking, and less of those that are in excess.
3- Weight loss
There are people who find it difficult to lose weight due to imbalances in the glands that produce the hormones that keep our body functioning at a biochemical level.
With the needles at points related to these glands, it is possible to balance these hormones, collaborating to treat hormonal problems that hinder weight loss.
In addition to these benefits, there are several other problems related to the lack or excess of a specific hormone.
Acupuncture does not replace the need for hospital medical treatment, but it can be used together to enhance results.
