How Integrative Medicine Can Optimize Your Health At Every Stage of Life
“Is there another way for me to feel better?” That is a question we frequently get from our female patients who are struggling with symptoms of PMS, perimenopause and menopause and with our patients who are in the process of trying to conceive.
With symptoms including cramping, headaches, fatigue, irritability, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, weight gain, low libido, chronic stress, unclear thinking, and moodiness, many patients come to us after being overwhelmed with all of the information out there, all of the prescription drugs available, and all of the over-the-counter products that promise relief. Sometimes the struggle continues for years.
Many of our female patients come to us when traditional western medicines are not as effective as hoped, have stopped being effective altogether, or are creating side effects that are difficult to manage. The goal is not just to alleviate symptoms – the goal is to treat the root cause and feel great.
“Dr. Koch and his team make me feel right at home and I am confident that I am getting the best care available. My moods and energy levels have evened out, my hot flashes have reduced and my headaches have gone away. I feel so much better.” – Jackie F.
That’s where we come in. Though not your typical “take two of these” – our acupuncture/personalized nutrition combinations have gotten great results for our patients. Utilizing an integrative, team-based approach, we design a personalized program especially for you – your body, your symptoms, your state of mind.
Acupuncture is one of the most widely recognized and successful methods of alternative treatment in the world. It works by restoring the flow of the body’s vital energy or “chi” by stimulating points along the body’s energy pathways. The hair thin needles also cause the body to release endorphins – natural painkillers — and may boost blood flow and change brain activity. Through this process, the body’s natural healing abilities are elevated, leading to an improved state of physical and emotional health –without harmful side effects. Because acupuncture is pharmaceutical-free, you don’t have to worry about taking several doses of a medication or suffering any negative side effects. And acupuncture can be used safely in conjunction with medications and other forms of physical therapy. Acupuncture is frequently and successfully used to treat the symptoms of PMS, perimenopause and menopause, and is well known as an alternative and complimentary treatment for fertility.
Our nutrition program is food and natural-supplement based and helps stabilize blood sugar, heal the adrenal glands and the nervous system, cleanse the liver and promote healthy digestion and elimination, and balance and synchronize the hormones – all of which go a long way in treating the root cause of many of the conditions experienced by women throughout their lifetime. When we combine acupuncture with personalized nutrition, this two-pronged approach helps restore, rebalance and revitalize the major systems of the body to enable week-over-week improvement.
