WOMEN'S HEALTH

Let's face it ladies, we need someone who gets it. The luxury of being a middle aged woman (that's right, luxury) is that I get it, personally and professionally. If I haven't experienced it, I have likely successfully worked with women who have had it. That being the full spectrum of "It."

 

Western medicine is great at telling us what is wrong (usually), but it is terrible at telling us why. Why do I have a low ovarian reserve? Why are my follicles developing prematurely? Why am I having hot flashes, weight gain, insomnia, foggy head, and dry skin? Hormone change isn't always the reason why. Furthermore, why are so many discomforts and maladies passed off as normal?

 

Look, just because it is "common," "normal", or "hormonal" doesn't mean you just have to suck it up and deal with it. Chinese medicine is an incredible tool to understand the why and treating accordingly. We use a different language and thus perspective than Western medicine. We look at the macroscopic picture vs. the infinitesimal divided microcosm. We use the physical symptoms and manifestations to understand the invisible world of physiology, and where it has gone awry. 

 

Our bodies are brilliant. We have an innate intelligence. It is my job to listen, see, and understand where our physiology has gone sideways and use herbs, acupuncture, moxibustion, guasha, and food to support proper physiology. 

 

Looking at what is going right in your body and how to help it be MORE aligned shouldn't be revolutionary, but it is. So let's head into this wellness evolution together, figure out the why, and continue on the journey towards greater health and vitality.
