Customer Question

Hello Dr. Thomas, I am a 51 year old woman who was on a cruise and just came back, I did acupuncture for digestive issues such as acid reflux, stress and anxiety plus I am overweight. I was given why weight after the acupuncturist checked my pulse, and did acupuncture on me. I'm just scared to take because I don't know if they are safe. The acupuncture helped digestion, and she said this Jou Herb would help and i need three months of it. Please advise me. I have high blood pressure also. Will these herbs help me, i am also perimenopausal and are taking black cohosh. Will these herbs interact.

these herbs can be unpredictable.

I would bring these herbs to your doctor.

there are more effective conventional medications which can help your anxiety symptoms and your menopausal symptoms.

effexor or paxil can help decrease anxiety for your and can also help decrease your hot flash symptoms.

do you have a primary care doctor you can see?
