Acu Wellness

Hormone Type: Dry

Dry Hormone Type Symptoms:

  • Dry skin, hair, and/or eyes feeling dehydrated
  • Night sweats, hot flashes, vaginal dryness (cervical mucus may be too acid or thick for sperm)
  • Hot at night
  • Recurrent miscarriages
  • Constipation
  • Low tolerance to stress, anxious
  • Low estrogen/progesterone (which can interfere with endometrial lining growth)
  • High FSH ( follicle-stimulating hormone)
  • Irregular cycles, long follicular phase (first half of cycle before ovulation)
  • Higher temps not sustained in the luteal phase (erratic)
  • Long cycle with maybe short, light period (not uncommon in the late ’30s, ’40s)
  • Short cycle with heavy bleeding and spotting mid-cycle
  • Varying BBT charts from month to month
  • Ovary function issues, may not respond well to hormone drugs
  • Your tongue may have cracks in it and look dry

These types sometimes have been told their eggs are too old, that they are in perimenopause, or that they are too old! If you are still ovulating, food and herbal therapy along with acupuncture can help you conceive.

Goals: Nourish and moisten the body, build more yin (estrogen/progesterone) and balance in the body. Build healthy follicles (developing eggs) and endometrial lining (lining of the uterus)
