Do your emotions feel pretty out of whack right now?
In this episode of Midlife Rise + Thrive, I invite you to explore with me how Chinese medicine can support you through the emotional changes of perimenopause and menopause.
Are you feeling depressed or angry because your body hurts? Upset because you’re exhausted all the time? Anxious because you don’t know what each day will look and feel like? You are not alone, and you’ve come to the right place.
Chinese and functional medicine can be helpful to women in midlife for so many reasons. They take a holistic approach to health, considering the connections between the mind, body, and spirit in a truly profound way. After all, one can’t exist without the others. Our emotions directly impact our physical bodies and vice versa, so let’s treat them that way.
Chinese medicine holds thousands of years of wisdom and I can’t wait to share it with you.
