3 natural ways acupuncture can help improve women’s health

Do you suffer from irritability, changes in digestion, or even increase in pain before your menses?

Did you know that there are natural ways to help soothe hormone imbalances and improve fertility?

Here are 3 natural ways Acupuncture & Naturopathic Medicine can improve women’s health:

Egg health & Fertility

Getting pregnant can be frustrating when it isn’t happening as easily as planned. There are many reasons you could be dealing with a difficult pregnancy including egg health. There are many factors that play into egg health including blood circulation, stress and hormonal balance. Acupuncture has been show to help improve blood and oxygen flow which can help with improving egg quality and strengthening uterine lining. Acupuncture can be considered as successful treatment in restoring fertility in the patients, by improving the sperm quality and ovaries function and balancing the endocrine system and hormones.

Other ways to help improve fertility is daily exercise, and using food as medicine to help reduce inflammation. Stress can also play a very important factor in egg health. Find ways to destress with meditation practices, acupuncture and belly breathing.

Hormonal balance

Hormonal imbalances in women are common and can result in weight gain, fatigue, skin problems, infertility and PMS. Hormones are an important part to our body’s growth and development, mood, reproduction and metabolism. To keep your body in balance, avoid high omega-6 polyunsaturated fats that are found in vegetable oils. Reduce your caffeine intake. Too much caffeine can have a negative impact on the endocrine system. Most importantly, make sure to get an adequate amount of sleep each night. When the body does not get enough rest, hormones cannot regulate. This is where acupuncture comes in. Acupuncture has been shown to help regulate hormones in addition to helping decrease the stress response as well as regulate sleep. A one-two punch to improve women’s health!


Many women feel their metabolism has slowed over the years, making it harder to break down and burn calories and fat. Acupuncture has been shown to not only reduce inflammation but can help to regulate lipid and glucose metabolism.

Other ways to help speed metabolism is adding more omega-3 fatty acids into your diet such as salmon and tuna. Omega-3 fatty acids have been found to help regulate blood sugar and lower inflammation, which can then improve metabolic function. Increasing strength training can also help give the metabolism a boost. The more muscle you have, the more your resting metabolism will increase to burn fat. Lastly, eating breakfast has been shown to give your metabolism a jump start for the day compared to eating your first meal later in the day.
