Have you ever heard a skilled musician play a stringed instrument? They understand the importance of finely tuning the instrument regularly to ensure it performs at its best. Our bodies are much the same, they also need regular attention as they are prone to getting out of tune from time to time.

What can create these ‘out of tune’ symptoms? Yes, you guessed it - Hormones. But what exactly are they and what do they do? To put it simply, they are chemical messages produced by a collection of glands. They are sent around the body to regulate many different functions that make us tick. If there is too much or too little of a specific hormone in our bloodstream, we can experience an unbalanced or ‘out of tune’ effect. This is particularly evident in women, where it can create changes in their menstrual cycle, irregular or heavy periods, pain, cramping, and if not corrected, difficulties with fertility.

Many young women are not waiting around until later in life to ensure they balance their hormones, but rather, getting into a regular routine of caring for this delicate function early in life. Your hormones are the key to your health and happiness, so it’s wise not to ignore them - especially if you are planning to get pregnant at some stage. After all, it’s a complicated process creating another life.

What can we do if we feel like our bodies are a little out of kilter? Just as a musician tunes his instrument for optimal performance, when we give our bodies a tune up by correcting our hormonal balance, it will perform just the way it is supposed to. Acupuncture is a natural and gentle alternative for women wanting to improve their health by regulating their hormones. You may have even heard positive things about how acupuncture can work as a fertility treatment and resolve many other physical problems women face on a monthly basis.
