Menopause Treatment

Locations in Houston, Katy and Woodlands

At The Axelrad Clinic we know that many women in Houston, Katy, Woodlands and surrounding cities in Texas experience almost no negative side effects when going through menopause, while others suffer. Night sweats, hot flashes, mood swings, loss of libido, insomnia; the list goes on and on. Our menopause therapy is customized to the needs of each patient, helping you feel your best and take back your life.

Women experience menopause differently across the board. Between ages 40 and 60 the hormones estrogen and progesterone decline, which can result in symptoms that may range in severity from minor to life-changing. From anxiety and bloating to memory issues, weight gain, joint pain and irritability, the symptoms can disrupt your life. While many doctors who practice modern Western medicine prescribe hormone therapy or other medication, our menopause treatment may include acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition and other components of naturopathic medicine that address these issues in a healthier, more natural way.

We Have a Unique Approach to Women’s Health

Acupuncture is highly effective in treating menopause and works to reduce stress while enhancing blood flow, promoting healing of the body’s tissues, restoring cells and balancing energy in the body. Many women are not aware of the body’s amazing ability to heal itself using food, herbs and natural things from the earth along with meditation and other therapies that promote wellness throughout the entire body. In traditional Chinese medicine the body is viewed as a whole instead of various systems and organs. By achieving total physical and emotional well-being, many of the symptoms of menopause are eliminated.

When you experience severe hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood swings or other symptoms of menopause most doctors treat the symptoms instead of the cause. Our natural approach is effective for helping balance hormones through holistic methods, lifestyle changes, improved nutrition, meditation, visualization and more.

Hormone therapy used in menopause treatment can be dangerous, and may lead to other serious health problems. For women in Houston, Katy, Woodlands and nearby cities looking for hormone-free menopause therapy, The Axelrad Clinic provides treatment designed to meet your individual needs. The good news is that relief is possible, without potentially dangerous drugs.

Why Our Natural Menopause Treatment Works So Well…

We address the root cause

Our process includes finding and attacking the actual root CAUSE of your menopausal symptoms. This is why so many have found relief with our therapies, even though other therapies didn’t work. Even those with very severe menopausal symptoms have experienced significant relief.

We use an all natural approach your doctor doesn’t know about

Your doctor may have told you that you have to live with your thyroid problem and accompanying symptoms or “this is as good as it gets”. That doesn’t mean there’s no treatment, it just means your doctor has run out of ideas or there aren’t conventional treatments available. We find that people who don’t respond well to conventional treatment often respond very well to our natural approach.

We help you awaken your body's natural healing system

Despite what you may have been led to believe, your body is not “broken” and it IS possible to have energy, focus, and joy again. That’s because your body never forgets how to heal itself. It just needs the right support. Your body makes its own internal anti-inflammatory substances and medicines, and our therapies help it do just that.

We keep it simple and results are quick

Feeling better and boosting your thyroid function does not have to be difficult or take a long time. Simple, targeted lifestyle and diet changes, along with our targeted natural therapies, are a very clear and concise way to attack the problem head on, and patients often see improved energy and mood within DAYS not WEEKS or MONTHS.

We focus on how you FEEL - not just the numbers

While everyone else is looking at pieces of paper with numbers, and not listening to you – WE focus on YOU, your story, and how you feel.

Are you feeling more energy? Are you thinking more clearly? Are you starting to lose those unwanted pounds? Does your skin look healthy and vibrant? THAT is OUR focus. NOT more expensive, unnecessary lab tests.

Our approach ALWAYS includes stress reduction

Stress is often a key component in the severity of menopausal symptoms. We do not ignore this, we actually teach you very simple ways to enhance sleep and relaxation which supports your body’s natural healing system.

Here's How We Help Thousands Every Year With PROVEN, Personalized Holistic Medical Care

Gentle Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the most powerful ways to naturally stimulate your body's innate healing process. Then, it gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues. Laser Acupuncture harnesses the vast healing intelligence your body contains to help it heal faster and with more lasting effects.

Herbal Medicine

Herbs simultaneously cure AND strengthen the body. This dual action is something unique to herbal medicine that makes it very well suited to treat hormonal conditions including thyroid, menstrual disorders, mood problems, sleep issues, and fertility.

Functional Nutritional Therapy

When your cells, glands, and tissues are fully nourished with the specific nutrients they need, these tissues naturally function at a very high level. This means you feel your best because the body’s key systems are optimized.

Relaxation and Stress-Reduction

When your nervous system is calm, the hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means a more focused mind, more resilient immune system, less inflammation, better circulation, and optimal nutrient absorption.

The Process Is Simple

Free Initial Consultation

At your free initial consultation you’ll meet with your clinician to discuss your case, your medical history, any medications you’re taking, and most importantly YOUR GOALS. We want to be certain that our program is going to meet your needs and that there is a HIGH probability of success for you – BEFORE we move forward to the next step.

Detailed Assessment & Treatment Plan

Once your free consultation is complete, and we agree to move forward, your next step is the Intake appointment. At this appointment, your clinician will do a detailed assessment of your symptom pattern, medical history, and other factors to determine the root cause of your issue and devise a specific plan of attack.

Your first acupuncture session will be performed at this time, and a you will be given a treatment plan with exact, easy-to-follow instructions. Your treatment plan will include dietary and lifestyle adjustments as well as key supplements and herbal medicines to address the root of YOUR thyroid issue.

Active Treatment & Symptom Resolution

You’ll return for once-weekly visits to ensure close support as you begin to feel the positive shifts of the therapy. We want to make sure your treatment plan is yielding the expected results: 

  • Increased energy
  • Better sleep
  • Improved mental focus
  • Healthier skin and hair
  • Healthy metabolism and (if needed) weight loss

You’ll also receive acupuncture at each visit to ensure that your neuroendocrine system (the delicate connection between your nervous and hormonal systems) is rebalancing in a way that results in optimal thyroid function.

Transitional Care As Things Stabilize

Once we see stable improvements, we will begin to reduce the frequency of visits. This usually occurs after about 8-12 visits. Initially you’ll come every other week, then once a month for a couple of visits, then you will no longer need regular treatments.

We’ll be here in case you ever want to come in for a tune-up or to address other health concerns.

Of course, MANY of our patients do wish to continue with “ongoing maintenance” and we are happy to work that out with you, should that be your wish.

Taking Care Of Your Friends and Loved Ones

We pride ourselves on the fact that 80% of our new patients are referred to us by other patients or people in the community who have witnessed their friends and loved ones receive life-changing benefits from our work.

So, we very much look forward to helping YOUR friends, family, and loved ones on THEIR journey to a more joyful, energetic, purposeful life.

Common Questions & Answers About Our Natural Thyroid Treatment Program

Does it hurt?

The needles are extremely thin, and they cause no pain because they are razor sharp.

Will I have to keep coming forever?

The vast majority of patients don’t need long-term maintenance. Once their condition is resolved, it stays that way.

Will I have to spend a lot of time coming in for treatments?

Most of our patients are able to get great results with once-weekly visits. We can discuss this in more detail at your free consultation.

Can natural medicine REALLY help my menopausal symptoms?

Absolutely. Your hormonal system – and your body as a whole – is capable of healing itself, especially when it has the nutritional support and specialized natural therapies we offer to help it get back on track. We’ve seen this firsthand in clinic over and over.

Will I have to do some kind of horrible, super-restrictive detox or elimination diet?

Absolutely NOT. Our program is all about setting you up to succeed. We find the 2 or 3 “key leverage points” in your diet and work on those. No impossible to follow meal plans or detoxes here.

How long does it take to see results?

People often feel a shift after the very first treatment. Acupuncture is a very powerful way to stimulate endorphin release, which is the most powerful relaxing substance the body makes.

What are my chances of success?

Results vary, of course. That being said, over 60% of our patients report improvement in frequency and severity of their migraines and many are able to reduce their medication use. However, 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.
