At Naturna, we care for the transitions in hormones throughout your life. Your hormones are not only responsible for reproduction and sexuality, but they affect your metabolism, sleep, digestion, mood, and more. From first menstruation through menopause and beyond, we use a combination of evidence-based approaches including Acupuncture, functional nutrition, and lifestyle counseling to manage the female hormonal roller coaster and ensure that your body systems are thriving. We’ll help you navigate this complex terrain in order to reset your inner balance and holistic health.
The functions and malfunctions of the hormones most responsible for women’s health and well-being include:
- cortisol: the stress hormone, which controls fight and flight responses
- insulin: regulates blood sugar
- reproductive hormones: estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone
- thyroid hormones: regulates metabolism
Acupuncture has been proven to help maintain the balance of these hormones in addition to others such as serotonin, endorphins, and dopamine. This ancient healing method works by directly targeting acupoints found throughout the human body that connect to the body’s hormonal glands. Previous research has found that concentration of these hormones tend to be focused around these acupoints, allowing the practitioner to access and balance the body’s hormonal pathways.
