New Study Reveals Acupuncture May Ease Symptoms of Menopause

April 3, 2019

While a natural part of every woman’s life, menopause is not an easy period to go through. It’s unavoidable, and can cause immense stress and anxiety because of the many symptoms that are involved.


Aside from the loss of one’s reproductive activity, menopause causes a number of bodily changes such as:

  • Irregular or no periods

  • Hot flashes

  • Night sweats


  • Vaginal dryness

  • Irritated skin

  • Urinary tract infections

  • Urinary incontinence

  • Mood swings

  • Low sex drive


  • Weight gain

  • Slowed down metabolism

  • Irregular heartbeat

  • Joint and muscle pain


Though many of these symptoms do go away post-menopause, the entire process takes time. And that causes a lot of issues, especially for those women who suffer from daily aches and pains and general discomfort already.


And that’s where acupuncture comes in.


How Acupuncture Helps


According to a study published in the medical journal BMJ Open, results suggest that acupuncture can help reduce the impact of many life-disrupting symptoms such as emotional problems, sleep disturbances, hot flashes, as well as night sweats.


In comparison to another group that didn’t receive acupuncture, results showed that around 80 percent of the participant in the acupuncture group stated that the sessions helped them.


A Note on Hormonal Treatments


In addition to various alternative methods for treatment, hormonal treatments have helped many women suffering from menopause.


However, it should be noted that while these drugs help and can actually treat many symptoms, they do have a long list of their own side effects. Not to mention the cost associated with them! With hormonal treatments, you have to balance your lifestyle with the right diet and activity.


And for those who aren’t able to do so, they often end up with more problems and health issues.


How we can help!


Acupuncture is not only affordable, as stated by the study, but it’s also effective in many ways.

But keep in mind, acupuncture is a delicate science that involves your nervous system. As such, if you’re to search for an acupuncturist in New Jersey, your only choice should be one who is experienced in the field.
