Subtle medicine for a delicate system

The advantage of our program is that we do not use hormones to treat your issues. Taking hormones, while helpful in the short term, does not allow your body to “re-learn” its own natural process. Exogenous hormones merely cover up the root cause of the problem. In our experience, simple dietary, nutritional, and lifestyle changes are often enough to make a significant impact on hormonal output, response, and metabolism.

When you use natural therapies such as those we prescribe, you give your body the chance to truly heal. Of course, in some cases hormones may be necessary, but in most of those cases we have seen that lower doses are required due to the body’s increased response and improved metabolic efficiency.

Common Questions

HOW DO YOU TREAT GYNECOLOGICAL ISSUES WITH NATURAL MEDICINE?

The subtle nature of the endocrine system responds very, very well to acupuncture, herbs, nutritional therapy, and mind-body medicine. In fact, in our opinion most women’s health issues are much better suited to our form of therapy than more forceful techniques like pharmaceuticals or surgery.

WILL I HAVE TO KEEP COMING FOREVER?

The great thing about our medicine is that we find the root cause of the problem and once it is addressed you no longer depend on our treatment.

DO YOU GIVE DIETARY RECOMMENDATIONS?

Absolutely. You will receive specific dietary recommendations based on your unique needs in addition to our diet plan that we’ve used for over a decade to help hundreds and hundreds of women just like you.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO WORK?

We’ve seen it take as little as hours (chronic pain, bleeding) to several days (PMS, menopausal symptoms). Everybody is different and the time prognosis varies. However, most of our patients feel better soon after their first couple of visits.

WHAT ARE YOUR SUCCESS RATES?

The vast majority of women who follow our treatment plan and complete their course of acupuncture visits report improvement in their symptoms.

WHAT ARE MY CHANCES OF SUCCESS?

Bottom line is that your situation is unique and once we meet with you we will be able to give you our best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome.

WHAT QUALIFIES YOU AS A SPECIALIST?

Our Director, Chris Axelrad, was in the first group ever certified by the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine – a specialty board for Acupuncturists dedicated to excellence in the practice of Reproductive Medicine. A large part of the training for this specialty involves general gynecological principles. He has also served on the Executive Board since 2012 and served as president from 2014 – 2016. He and all clinicians at The Axelrad Clinic are continually doing post-graduate courses in endocrinology, reproductive medicine, and gynecology to ensure they are providing the absolute best care for you.
