PMS, Menopausal and Perimenopausal Issues

PMS, then perimenoupausal, then menopausal issues. As Roseanne Rosannadana from the early days of “Saturday Night Live” used to say, “It’s always something!”

The Medical Attack

Woman smilingMedicine views everything and everyone to be pathological. That’s just the way they are. And they assume that, whatever you have, you’ve got to “live with it.” And they are there to help you in your misery.

Medicine’s answer to your complaints? Drugs, and more drugs. None of these drugs help to balance your hormones. None of these drugs are given to get you healthy. They are given to counteract symptoms, to cover up symptoms, at what cost?

One of the great medical mistakes of all time (and there are many of them) is the HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy), usually Premarin (made from the urine of pregnant horses) given to perimenopausal and menopausal women for decades, with the promise of sustained youth. You were told that HRT would prevent heart disease, cancer and stroke. But, in 2002, the Framingham Study concluded that HRT actually causes heart attack, cancer and stroke, as well as blood clots. I was warning women of this since 1981, when I began practice. How did I know? Really, this is just biological common sense. Sex hormones are, biochemically, steroids. You play with steroids, you real a whirlwind. Or, to put it more broadly, you play with Mother Nature.

The Chiropractic Connection

Chiropractic care isn’t a treatment for PMS, perimenopausal or menopausal problems (or any other condition). But whatever bad effects you are experiencing with PMS, perimenopause or menopause, these are the outcome of dysfunction, a lack of balance, of your reproductive organs, and, on a broader scale, part or all of your endocrine system. What runs all this? Your brain and your nervous system. So interference to this control and coordination, in the form of Verterbal Subluxation Complex (VSC), will allow this to happen. Its correction, by gentle, specific, scientific chiropractic adjustments, will allow your body to come into balance. This should make life a lot easier… physically, mentally and socially.

On to a brighter topic…  Chiropractic care benefits your health, in general, and makes the most of others things YOU do for your own health, like working out. Think about it. Either your nervous system is controlling and coordinating your body, or your body is not doing as well as it should. Get checked. Get adjusted.
