Chinese medicine is often helpful where conventional medicine is not. Infertility, PMS, endometriosis, PCOS, menstrual disorders and menopause can be better managed or resolved with acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and nutrition.
A woman’s menstrual cycle plays such a fundamental and central role in her life that it is an area where much imbalance can occur. As such, gynaecological disorders make up nearly than half of the patient complaints that we treat with Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture.
Unfortunately it is also an area where there is a lack of conventional treatments. In broad terms, for a young woman with menstrual irregularity, the main suggested treatment is to use the contraceptive pill. While this may sometimes work, it has always seemed odd to have a single treatment for all these different conditions. If a woman is near menopausal and having menstrual problems, then the suggestion of a hysterectomy arises much too quickly. Chinese medicine does not consider the removal of any part of the body can be done without creating great disharmony throughout the rest of the body.
In general, there is a great lack of treatment options for an area which some reports suggests affects up to 90% of women at some time or another. Acupuncture and herbs have been treating menstrual irregularities for more than 2000 years!
A woman’s menstrual cycle is a very delicate hormonal balance. When this delicate balance is disturbed by various stresses and strains of life, problems occur.
Often, women consider menstrual irregularities as normal. Because they have always had painful periods or PMT or other symptoms and have never had treatment, they consider it will always be this way. This is not true, and while it may not able to help everyone there are a lot of people that can benefit from treatment. The most common complaints treated are.
- Painful periods
- Irregular periods
- Heavy periods
- PMT/Premenstrual bloating/headaches or breast tenderness
- Polycystic ovaries
