Natural Menopause Treatments in Huntersville NC

Looking for natural menopause treatments to supplement or instead of (hormone replacement therapy) HRT? Struggling with insomnia, mood, mental fog, hot flashes and weight gain?

At Doyle Chiropractic and Acupuncture, we believe that a holistic approach is the best way to treat your perimenopause and menopause symptoms. Instead of taking one prescription drug for insomnia and another drug for hot flashes and another drug for weight management, we believe in addressing imbalances between the hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone through natural means.

Start with Nutrition

Optimal nutrition is essential during perimenopause and menopause. Now is the time to get help with your diet, including using tools like acupuncture to curb cravings and to suppress appetite naturally. Now is the time to lower your intake of junk food (especially high carb and processed foods) and to increase your consumption of fresh, whole foods like fruit, vegetables and proteins.

Use Herbal Supplements

Food is medicine; herbal remedies have been proven to help alleviate symptoms naturally. Herbal supplements work because they share various molecular features with our own hormones, thereby supporting hormone production or mimicking hormone function, depending on your body’s unique needs.

Herbal supplements that have been studied and proven to relieve menopause symptoms are black cohosh, passionflower, chasteberry, wild yam and ashwagandha.

Of course, you will need to check with your MD if you are taking prescription medications or have comorbidities to ensure the supplements work with your existing regimen.


During menopause, fluctuating estrogen levels cause women to start gaining weight around their abdomen. Excess fat produces excess estrogen, which in turn triggers the body to store more fat around your waist, continuing the cycle. You need to disrupt this cycle by exercising to encourage high metabolism and healthy hormone production.

Establish Healthy Stress Relief Practices

Unmanaged stress can cause imbalances in hormones and neurotransmitters that affect mood, mental function, thyroid and digestive function, blood sugar imbalances and symptoms like hot flashes and low libido. Use an app on your phone or look up guided meditation sessions on YouTube to get started on a meditation practice, or join a yoga class that also promotes mindful breathing exercises. When you manage your stress, you will also see your symptoms decrease in severity or disappear altogether.


Acupuncture has been used to treat anxiety, mental cognition issues, depression, hot flashes, cravings and weight issues for centuries. Different acupuncture points are stimulated to direct energy to different parts of the body, dependent on your individual symptoms. Acupuncture is natural and effective; it has no negative side effects and requires very little time and effort on your part.
