What’s the best acupuncture protocol to address mood swings, anxiety and depression during peri menopause.
There is -never- a “best” protocol for anything in Chinese Medicine. Your treatment, in every case, would be appropriately tailored to you by your practitioner. Certainly the range of issues you are describing is very commonly treated within Chinese Medicine in the context of both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. For the overall basics on that we suggest you read “treating the cause vs. the symptoms”.
In short, you first arrive at a diagnosis in Chinese Medicine terms and then tailor a treatment to the individual. Some common approaches would be on our menopause treatment page, particularly within the acupuncture for menopause, section. But these are merely general guidelines that should never be followed verbatim without significant tailoring to the individual.
