Traditional Chinese medicine has a unique approach to women’s health issues; instead of just treating the symptom, we treat the root (the reason) and the branch (the symptoms).
All of it goes hand in hand and there is no disconnect, which is why when treating P.M.S we treat mind, body and spirit to allow the hormones, emotional and physical manifestation to flow as they need to, balanced and healthy.
HEAVY, PAINFUL, LONG OR SHORT PERIODS
In Chinese medicine we look at the balance of yin and yang within the body in order to understand what is happening. In order to nourish another life, we must first have abundant blood and the blood should then be shed with each cycle when it is not needed to create life. To have a regular and healthy cycle we need to have enough Yin to nourish the blood and Yang to move the blood, as well as Qi flowing as it is meant to, unobstructed and free. For when it becomes obstructed we see clots, fibroids, cysts, pain and menstrual irregularities
Acupuncture has been proven through research that it can significantly reduce both the frequency and the amount of hot flushes in menopausal women. This is one of various menopausal symptoms women tend to suffer from. Since the body goes through a great change hormonally, it tends to affect our physical body and emotional body. Issues such as night sweats, insomnia, irritability, mood swings, dryness can range from mild to severe. Chinese medicine can treat all of these side effects and help the transition into menopause be one of more ease.
