Who We Help

Hormone Imbalance

Chinese Medicine has been successfully correcting imbalances in the body for thousands of years.  Hormones are no exception.  A recent study showed that nearly 50% of women experience hormone imbalances! Men don’t have as high as a percentage but they, too, are ruled by hormones. Nearly 40% of men age 45 and older have low testosterone.

Hormones are essential to the workings of the human body and affect just about everything in us.

Hormones are produced by our endocrine glands, adrenals, thyroid, pancreas and either from the male or female reproductive system. They are chemical messengers that communicate with the cells in our brain, heart, bones, muscles, skin, and reproductive organs.  When one goes out of balance there often is a cascade effect.

 

Hormone imbalance can be the cause of a host of symptoms, such as:

  • Migraines

  • Insomnia

  • Night sweats

  • Stress

  • Weight gain

  • Hot flashes

  • Mood swings

  • Low libido

  • Rapid or slow heart rate

  • Reproductive issues

  • Gynecological issues

  • Fatigue

….and the list just keeps going.

Hormones that go unchecked for long periods of time will start to cause chronic disease in the body.

 

Typically the longer the imbalance has been present the longer it takes to correct, but all hope is not lost. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine paired with Functional Nutrition can bring you back to balance and feeling your best quickly.

Patient Stories

"I began my journey with herbs 4 months ago. I was on the phone with Liz, and telling her something in my body had changed in Nov. of 2015. I had been having very intense migraine headaches, my mood changed, I was very anxious, depressed, nervous, worried. I was waking up at night panicked. You would have never noticed, looking at me from the outside, but inside I was crumbling. I went to the doctor a couple times, they gave me meds for migraines which didn't help. I went to the ER for migraine cocktails, as I knew 1-2 times a month this would happen. It continued for 4 more months. My husband would leave for work and I would call to check on him multiple times a day because I feared something bad was going to happen to him. I cried all the time, I lost myself, I suddenly didn't know who I was anymore. This was the complete opposite of me. While talking to Liz on the phone one day I broke down, I cried and told her what I had been going through. She asked me why I waited so long to call, well I was afraid, embarrassed, and scared of what was happening in my body. I had no answers! Liz started talking to me about my periods, how I was feeling and asked me multiple questions about my body. She asked that I send her pictures of my tongue. I had a lot of heat and fire in my body. Liz told me to start stretching, try yoga, and work on getting some "ME" time. The stretching was awesome it really helped loose my body up, and I could breathe easier. It was an amazing consultation!! Within a couple days my herbs were here!!

I could feel a difference in my mood the first week, I was calmer and not so emotional..

I did have a migraine the first month, but with more tongue pictures, another consultation she changed my formula.
I HAVE NOT had a headache or migraine in 4 mths. I take my herbs 2x a day, and 1x at night. I no longer wake in panic, I don't cry all day anymore. I am no longer anxious, depressed, or overly worried. I don't call my husband 20x a day to make sure he is okay anymore. I FEEL LIKE ME AGAIN!!! My herbs are healing my body from the inside, and its amazing!!
Liz's consultation, and herb formulation has forever changed my life. If you suffer from any of this, known someone who does, or just feel like your body is off. Please do yourself, a friend, or family member a favor a call her. You will not regret you did. Her formulas are custom to your body, and your specific needs!

Thank you Elizabeth for taking the time to listen, formulate, and heal my body!!
I was once weak, and felt broken. You have helped my body to rebuild and feel strong again
You are amazing at what you do."
