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.

Real Success Stories From Real Patients

I wanted to let you know that I had the most wonderful sleep last night. I went to bed at around 11 and slept till the alarm woke me up. In the morning, I felt very refreshed and could get up easily. I have again this light and happy feeling throughout the day. You are a wonderful healer.

– Gina – 45 – Medical Researcher


After years and years of headaches 3-4 times weekly, I no longer have them at all. And, that’s not even what I came here to treat! – Grace, 42


“As a first time user of chinese medicine, I was at first skeptkcal of the results I might get. After just 3 sessions I had a noticeable improvement for all conditions we were treating. I felt good about the process as it also helped me to stop taking prescription drugs to control the conditions. the prescription drugs worried me due to the side effects it might have on my unborn baby. I continued to do 2 sessions a week with Chris Axelrad up until the week before my delivery. I am grateful for Chris’ expertise and friendship and would highly recommend him and his practice to anyone in search of a better way!”

Susan – 36 – Marketing Executive


I came to the Axelrad Clinic after losing trust in all the conventional and alternative doctors I had seen. I’ve been on so many drugs: bioidentical hormones like estrogen and progesterone, hydrocortisone, sleep aids, and adrenal support supplements just to name a few. Nothing helped the continued excessive bleeding, insomnia, fatigue, hot flashes, and night sweats. Chris was all ears. He listened patiently and shaped a treatment plan for me. After 4 treatments I was able to get off all the prescription drugs and hormones and my symptoms were alleviated.

He brought back my trust after ten (10) long years of bad experiences with unsuccessful treatments. I highly recommend Chris Axelrad for menopause and women’s issues. His attentiveness to my problem enabled me to recover in a short time. – Sonya, 49


Several months ago, I came to Chris feeling just off-center. I was not ill necessarily, but I was definitely not myself. I was literally speeding into peri-menopause; my stomach was gaining too quickly, I was experiencing hot-flashes, I was not sleeping well, I was not digesting well, my period was off. After I saw Chris a few times for acupuncture, and after I established his suggested vitamin/mineral/herbal regime, I began to feel increasingly stronger. Now, I feel almost 100% back to normal. My period seems back to normal, my hot-flashes are rare, I’m not so tired because I’m sleeping better and my digestion seems very normal. Also, my moods are much more even. Through his treatments, his seminars and conversations with him about my issues, Chris taught me so much about my body and its wellness. He is a great listener and seems to really care about how to get and keep me well. He worked with me on many levels that enabled me to continue treatments and thrive under them. He really helped to bring me back to “center” physiologically and mentally. I would absolutely not be feeling this well without his treatments and will go back as much as I need in order to keep me feeling this way.

I am 27 years old and my health has been deteriorating since I was 19 years old. My freshman year in college I was experiencing severe nausea and vomiting every day. I was diagnosed with glucose intolerance and put on a lot of medication and a strict diet. Five years later I felt fine and took myself off the medications. Then last October I started experiencing extreme abdominal pain. The pain lasted everyday all day. I also had extremely painful periods. I went to my gynecologist and they suspected endometriosis so I had a laparoscopy and they found 2 minor spots that tested positive for endometriosis. I was told that the pain would go away after the surgery but it didn’t. So they put me on the Lupron injection shot for 3 months. I believe this made the pain worse. The pain got so bad that I couldn’t get out of bed and all I could do was cry. I didn’t give up and I continued to seek out doctors. I saw a gasterinterolgist and an endometriosis specialist. They wanted to rule out everything else so I had a ultrasound, endoscopy, colonoscopy, MRI, cat scan, and lots of blood work. Everything came back negative and looked perfectly fine. My pain was just getting worse and continued to be a mystery. I was starting to become very discouraged, depressed and I felt hopeless.

My best friend started to research endometriosis and abdominal pain to try to help me find some answers or alternatives I could try. She came across the Axelrad Clinic on the internet and she really believed in the natural holistic practice of medicine. She first approached me about it 3 months ago but I told her I was really skeptical about the alternative medicine and I wanted to try the Lupron injection shot instead. Since the Lupron only made my symptoms worse I felt that I hit rock bottom and was willing to try anything. Alli approached me again and insisted I try it. Thank God she did because I have only been on Chris’s supplements and herbs for 1 month and I feel better than I ever have. I have gone through numerous surgeries, procedures, and various extensive drug treatments and Chris’s approach of supplements and herbs has been the only thing that has given me relief.

I have been treated by many doctors and specialists in Houston and San Antonio for the last 9 years. My experience with Chris has been extremely different than the other doctors I have seen in that Chris is a great listener and he is great at putting things in perspective and giving me hope. He is the one person that I have found that truly takes time and puts his heart and soul in the practice and gives extra special care to his patients.

I feel a lot better. I have more energy during the day and I’m sleeping through the night for the first time in a year. But most important I am pain free.

I have already recommended this clinic to my sister and my good friend. Both of which are experiencing pain and discomfort.

I think my favorite part of this treatment was seeing such unbelievably positive results in my body. I think what amazed me the most was that because I don’t live in Houston, Chris treated me long distance and through trial and error and phone consultations I feel 100% better. I look forward to our weekly visits on the phone because each time he enlightens me with his knowledge on the human body. I am amazed at how this holistic approach has helped me so much.

– Kate – 27 – Human Resources


“I really enjoy continuing to receive your newsletters even after so many years since I’ve lived in Houston. I just wanted to send a note to say that I really appreciate the treatments I received from you. That was really the first time I had felt in many years what it was like to have energy and not just be making it through the days. The job I took in Pennsylvania was a really awful experience, but it led me to Massachusetts which was amazing. Now I’m in Costa Rica!”


“I came in to see Chris feeling like I was at the end of my rope. My mental and physical energy were at their very lowest and I was experiencing panic attacks that left me frightened to the point where I just wanted to stay at home.
“Realizing my fear of needles, Chris suggested that we use Qigong – what a great experience. Through Chris’s ability to seek out the areas that needed help with his healing hands, I can actually feel improvements in my physical makeup but also a marked improvement in my panic attacks and am able to function as a normal person again. Through kind words, healing hands and constant listening to my ailments I definitely know that there is hope. Thank you Chris! You are amazing.”

– Linda – 45 – Insurance Rep


“I enjoy working with Chris very much. He wants to know my concerns and priorities, and he shapes a treatment plan accordingly. I’ve been to other practitioners of alternative medicine, but I don’t use their services any longer because I’ve never felt as listened to as I do with Chris.”

– Celeste – 46 – Therapist

“Chris is a very caring individual. I came to Chris for general health maintenance issues including insomnia for over two years, cold hands and feet, and some digestive complaints. I have been very impressed and think that Chris is a very gifted healer. And, I have seen improvement in all areas where I wanted help — I am sleeping through the night almost every night, my hands and feet are no longer cold all the time, and my digestion has improved tremendously. All this after just 4 treatments!
“I’m not a big fan of needles, but Chris is very gifted, and the needles were painless. I have been to several acupuncturists in the past and my best experience has been with Chris. There should be more practitioners of natural medicine like him in Houston!”

– Karen – 39


“I suffer from chronic pain in my ankle joint and have had long standing nerve and circulation problems in my foot due to an old ankle injury, resulting in partial fusion. I first came to Chris during a severe pain episode. While acupunture has not cured the arthritis pain, it has lessened it’s severity and lessened greatly the other problems in my foot. At the end of the day I would experience burning and discomfort and soreness in my foot. While having weekly treatments and taking the herbs Chris provided, this pain and discomfort went away.”

– Annie – 39


“This note is long overdue. The month of December is just a little too demanding. I also chose the last two weeks to stop taking Bextra for my arthritis pain.
“Your herbs have helped me considerably. I still have pain but it is tolerable and I usually sleep all night now. This is all amazing considering just 6 months ago I was in pain all of the time and woke up at least 2-3 times a night.

“I still do the exercises that you gave me every day and also use heat alot on my hands. I hope to see you soon.”

– Anita – 53


“I was a patient of Chris Axelrad’s for a period of appoximately two months for the treatment of neck pain associated with several whiplash injuries sustained many years ago. The pain appeared to be muscular in nature, though a baseline MRI 4 years ago and subsequent MRIs (the most recent being at Chris’ suggestion) showed progressive spondylsis and cervical stenosis C4, C5 and C6. I went to Chris for acupuncture relief for the tightness, limited range of motion and inflammation of the muscles. In addition to acupuncture, Chris administered herbs and recommended some strengthening exercises.

“While my neck pain is still prevalent, it has lessened and I have learned to manage it with Chris’s guidance. I was very impressed with Chris’s abilities and most of all his genuine care for my well being. He followed up with calls and emails several times a week for several weeks after treatment to check on me. How many care providers would do that?

"I would recommend Chris Axelrad for pain relief and have referred several people to him."

– Mary – 49 – Attorney


“Within a week of Chris treating me (2 appointments) my knee had improved by 25% after 2 weeks, I was at 70%. I continued the treatments and increased my range of motion. I was running and playing sports and did not look back after 2 months. Prior to seeing Chris, I had been injured for almost 2 months, seen 2 Doctors with no relief in sight. I highly recommend Chris Axelrad, his evaluation and attention to detail in my recuperative process enabled to fully recover in 2 months time.”

When it came time for me to give birth to my first child, my doctor told me that because I was already almost 40 weeks and had not dilated even 1cm, he wanted to induce labor. I had read some scary stories on the internet about Ptosin, so I decided to try something else. I went on the internet and found The Axelrad Clinic and Chris Axelrad. After reading that he specialized in women’s issues and treating pregnant women, I scheduled a visit. Immediately I was put at ease because Chris was very confident that he could help me. He asked some important questions about the amniotic fluid and some other factors, and this really put me at ease also. My doctor agreed to give me one week to try acupuncture before we induced.I went for treatment two days in a row. Chris was even kind enough to schedule my third visit on a Saturday because he said it would not be effective if we did not do the treatments daily. I didn’t even need that Saturday treatment because my water broke on Friday evening, and I went into labor. There were no complications with my labor, and it went very smoothly. I’m so happy I found Chris and the Axelrad Clinic! Thanks for your help!

Diane – 29 – Full-time mom


“As a young, single woman going through pregnancy on my own, I was very stressed out and overwhelmed with my situation. Even after my first visit with Chris, I felt more relaxed and confident in myself, and the threat of depression withered. Chris is very professional and respectful and has an excellent bedside manner. Not only did the qigong help relieve my issues, also his comforting advice eased my issues.”

Mary – 25 – Social Worker


“Towards the end of my 2nd trimester with my second child (a boy) I experienced dramatic changes in my health. I started having panic attacks, I would have trouble breathing, I developed blood pressure issues and a very serious case of insomnia. My chemicals had become completely unbalanced and I couldn’t function mentally or physically. After being hospitalized twice for dehydration, exhaustion and high blood pressure my OBGYN suggested a series of medications to keep these issues at bay. I researched the medication and the side effects on my unborn child. It didn’t take me long to recognize that both the short and long term side effects on my child made medication not an option. I started to research alternatives and that’s when I came across Axelrad Clinic. I met with Chris. His bedside manner and his knowledge put me at immediate ease that he could help me without taking medication. It took several (5 or 6) visits before I started to notice any changes, and then things shifted completely. I started to sleep, my blood pressure came down, I was breathing easy. During the remainder of my pregnancy, I did acupuncture with Chris 2x a week and avoided taking any medications. Plus I had the best naps EVER in his office during treatment.”

“My baby boy was born a healthy 8 1/2 pounds in May of 2007. He’s two now and I continuously think back to how Chris helped us.

“Last summer I was in an accident and shattered my leg. Through supplements and other Chinese medical treatment Chris helped me to improve the speed and quality of my healing and to get through 5 surgeries in 4 months. There is no doubt in my mind that Chris’s input made a huge difference. My orthopedist still can’t believe it.

“I am happy to say that I am healed and chasing around my little boy who keeps me hopping.

“Thanks Chris. You are the best.” Shelley – 40 – Financial Advisor

 How Acupuncture Works For Common Gynecological Conditions

Calms And Balances Your Neuro-Endocrine Axis

When your nervous system is calm, your hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means more hormonal balance, less inflammation, better circulation and nutrient absorption.

Opens And Regulates Microcirculation

When we use acupuncture to bring more blood flow to the glands and tissues that need the most support, those tissues naturally work better. This means key tissues like thyroid, liver, adrenals, ovaries, and others are able to function at peak levels.

Promotes Tissue Healing

When you use acupuncture to stimulate your body’s healing process, it gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues. Acupuncture harnesses the vast healing intelligence your body contains to help you heal faster.

Helps Your Body Sustain Optimal Function

When you apply acupuncture as a weekly therapy for several weeks, your body naturally and gently begins to undergo positive changes. This is different from drugs and surgery which represent drastic, sudden change your body may not be able to sustain. The changes induced by acupuncture are literally like new pathways your body won’t soon forget.

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

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.

Women’s Health

Houston, Katy, The Woodlands & Surrounding Areas

At The Axelrad Clinic our naturopathic medicine practitioners know that women’s health involves much more than gynecology and the reproductive system. Feeling your best and enjoying good physical and emotional health at any age is vital to living your best life. Women in Houston, Katy, The Woodlands and nearby cities desire to empower their own bodies at every stage of life, from the reproductive years to menopause and beyond. From acupuncture and herbal medicine to nutrition, diet and mind-body medicine, we believe in a holistic approach and the power of the body to heal itself from within.

Some of the issues women often face include infertility which may be unexplained, or caused by endometriosis , PCOS , irregular menstrual cycles or hormonal problems. While our natural fertility specialists focus heavily on reproductive issues, our goal is to discover underlying problems that lend to disease and cause sickness in the body rather than treating outward symptoms. Our mission is to put women of any age on a pathway to vibrant health!

Functional medicine is vital to women’s health not only because it is a natural approach to healing, but focuses on nutrition, herbal medicine, lifestyle, alternative therapies and achieving balance in the body. Every woman is unique with specific needs and health concerns, so treatment and therapies are customized to the individual. Unlike modern Western medicine where there are often one or two medications or treatments used to address a specific health concern among countless women, natural medicine is not a one-size-fits-all remedy; it is as individualized as each woman herself.

Houston Natural Fertility

Most women lead extremely busy and sometimes stressful lives. From giving birth, raising children and being the “caretaker” in the home to having a career and even caring for aging parents, day-to-day life can be draining both physically and emotionally. Low energy, sleep issues, mood swings, weight gain, hypothyroidism, low libido, menopausal symptoms (hot flashes, night sweats), and menstrual issues are extremely common. The good news is that from infertility issues to menopause and even digestive concerns or hormone imbalances, our women’s health professionals can help.

At The Axelrad Clinic we believe in the power of nature to promote healing in the body. Using acupuncture, nutrition, herbal medicine, meditation and other components of holistic medicine, we help women achieve their best physical and emotional well-being while promoting good health, essential for fighting disease or illness in the body. Women in Houston, Katy and The Woodlands are invited to learn more now by contacting us at 713-527-9555.

Here's How Our Unique Combination of FOUR Very Potent, Time-Tested 100% Natural Therapies Work To Bring The Body To Heal Itself

(And YOU get to choose which therapies you would like to incorporate.)

Gentle, Painless Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the most powerful ways to naturally stimulate your body’s internal healing process. Then, it gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues. Acupuncture harnesses the vast healing intelligence your body contains to help you heal faster.

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 chronic and non-life threatening conditions like migraine, PMS, menstrual difficulties, menopausal symptoms, hormonal imbalance, and reproductive issues.

Functional Nutritional Therapy

You'll receive a CLEAR, easy-to-follow nutritional plan. When your cells, glands, and tissues are fully nourished with the specific nutrients they need they naturally function at a very high level. This means you feel your best because your body’s key systems are optimized.

Relaxation and Stress-Reduction

When your nervous system is calm, your hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means more hormonal balance, less inflammation, better circulation and nutrient absorption.
