WebMD presents this short video on the effectiveness of acupuncture for menopause. When Mary Alice Stuart began experiencing the hot flashes and uncomfortable symptoms of menopause, she looked for an effective alternative to hormone replacement therapy. Mary Alice wanted a natural therapy for the hot flashes and anxiety that accompany menopause stating “Hormone replacement therapy is kinda scary. For me I just don’t think it’s a healthy choice.” So Mary Alice tried acupuncture.
After her acupuncture treatments, Mary Alice noticed better moods, less anxiety, reduced hot flashes. She now receives acupuncture only once a month and takes Chinese herbs to keep her menopause symptoms under control. Mary Alice’s results are common experiences for others using acupuncture and herbs to reduce menopause symptoms.
