Natural Healthcare

Ooh, I'm excited about this acupuncture center I found in Houston: The Axelrad Clinic for Natural Women's Healthcare. Here's what their website says:

Restore your natural rhythm and correct hormonal imbalance with safe, natural, hormone-free treatment. We have seen excellent results treating conditions such as menopausal symptoms, menstrual irregularity, PMS, endometriosis, and other common women's health complaints.

Our women's health treatment program is designed to support your body's natural hormonal function and restore the delicate balance of your endocrine system. Using the natural treatments of Acupuncture, Individualized Herbal Therapy, and targeted nutritional support, we correct the subtle disharmonies that are causing your hormones to function abnormally. We have seen dramatic improvements in patients with these and other conditions:
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Endometriosis
  • Irregular menstruation
  • Painful/heavy/infrequent periods
  • Premature Ovarian Failure
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Stress, anxiety, and depression
Our program that incorporates detailed holistic analysis of your unique constitution, combined with and supported by laboratory testing. It is our view that by combining holistic and scientific we are on the cutting edge of natural women's health care, providing our patients with a high degree of accuracy and efficacy. Your treatment program will consist of:
  • A detailed initial consultation to pinpoint the type, source, and cause of hormonal imbalance.
  • Development of a customized treatment plan that addresses the symptoms as well as the cause of your hormonal issues.
  • Regular acupuncture or Qigong treatments designed to support and encourage proper functioning at every stage of the menstrual cycle.
  • Customized herbal prescriptions tailored to your individual needs, targeted to maximize each phase of your cycle.
  • A targeted nutritional support regimen that is based on results of laboratory testing and grounded in scientific knowledge and research.
  • Mind-body exercises, meditations, and lifestyle guidance based on your unique needs.
The advantage of our program is that we do not use potentially harmful hormones to treat your issues. Taking hormones, while helpful in the short term, does not allow your body to "re-learn" its own natural process. Exogenous hormones merely cover up the root cause of the problem. In our experience, simple dietary, nutritional, and lifestyle changes are often enough to make a significant impact on hormonal output, response, and metabolism. When you use natural therapies such as those we prescribe BEFORE agreeing to take hormonal treatments, you give your body the chance to truly heal. Of course, in some cases hormones may be necessary, but in most of those cases we have seen that lower doses are required due to the body's increased response and improved metabolic efficiency.
