Four Ways Acupuncture Helps Hot flashes and Night Sweats
- Triggers more positive mood (by activating endorphin pathways)-May help you deal better with symptoms!
- Decreases secretion of calcitonin (neuropeptide that causes vasodilation) *vasodilation triggers warm body temperature
- Increases melatonin
- Prompts Your Body to Return back to Homeostasis *Homeostasis= condition of optimal functioning for an organism
Most Patients suffering with hot flashes report less frequency and less intense symptoms after acupuncture.
How Acupuncture Helps Hot Flashes
Acupuncture triggers a more positive mood by activating endorphin pathways. Patients can move from anxiety, depression and irritability to feeling chill and relaxed.
Acupuncture prompts the body to decrease vasodilation in order to reduce heat and perspiration in the body, helping the individual both day and night.
Acupuncture increases Melatonin, the sleep hormone necessary for sound sleep. Melatonin is disturbed during hot flashes and night sweats occurring at night.
This is why many get acupuncture for Insomnia!
Acupuncture helps the body return to its natural, healthy state of homeostasis. Homeostasis is the condition of optimal functioning for an organism.
Another example of this is when acupuncture lowers blood pressure in someone with high blood pressure.
