Accupuncture and Yoga

I am starting a yoga class and will see how that effect my horrible menopausal symptoms. I also have an appointment with an accupuncturist. Has anyone found relief from these modalities? My regular doctor has been useless, as she will not do hormone testing. I have an appt with an OBGYN friday, and am wondering whether to keep that appointment, based on how the one went with the GP. I want to see how the alternative assessment goes with the accunpuncturist first.
Background: I have been suffering from peri-menopausal symptoms for years now, and just turned 50, including migraines (which I made go away with turning to a vegan diet for a few months). In the last few months I can't manage my life, with mood swings, bloating, gas, always feeling hungry, not being able to concentrate (and I teach English!) I need to start getting back on balance!

Re: Accupuncture and Yoga

Hi CleoB,

Welcome to the boards!! I know the peri symptoms can be horrible. I have all that you listed and then some. I haven't tried yoga or acupuncture, but will be very interested in how it works for you. It's very hard to get a GP to test our hormones, mine refused also. I think they think the tests aren't so reliable. I would go ahead and follow up with your gyno just to see what she has to offer.

Please let us know how you're doing with your natural approaches, we all can use any help we can get!

Take care and post back,
Missy
