LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Traditional medicine attempts to treat menopausal symptoms with drugs or hormones. However, they don't handle underlying causes. As a result, menopausal women may have to suffer.
There is another alternative. Through Holistic Health Solutions, a woman may significantly decrease her menopausal symptoms using a variety of all-natural treatments.
"The goal of holistic healing is to remove or reduce all of the causes of a health problem instead of just masking the symptom. Furthermore, I teach my patients to do many of the therapies at home to maintain their results," explains Dr. Stewart Edrich, DC.
As for menopause, Edrich begins by addressing the functioning of a woman's liver and adrenals. The liver must be "de-toxified" and the adrenals must be strong. These organs are key to hormonal balance.
"Giving a women more hormones is not always the right place to start." Edrich explains, "The trick lies in the efficiency of the other organs. If you make too much cortisol "The belly fat hormone" your body will "steal" the sex hormones to make more cortisol, and if the liver is too toxic it won't be able to re-cycle used estrogen which throws off the hormonal balance."
Edrich believes, "First use holistic processes that focus on diet and lifestyle, use natural methods based on Applied Kinesiology and 3000 years of Chinese medicine to determine function; such as location and types of symptoms, condition of the tongue hair and fingernails. If the problem is not resolving then saliva, blood, stool or urine tests may give additional data."
For treatment first he uses diet, exercise and lifestyle, then uses herbs and supplements along with postural balancing and acupressure.
Even though detoxification and tonification seem simple, most people will not be able to do it on their own without professional guidance and coaching.
