Women’s health issues respond well to acupuncture treatment because acupuncture has a nuanced yet profound effect on the HPA specifically and the nervous system overall.
Menstrual Irregularities from Western/Eastern Perspectives
From a western point of view, menstrual irregularities originate as functional disturbances of the hypothalamus-pituitary axis (HPA) or the ovaries, tubes, uterus, or cervix.
Eastern medicine (acupuncture and Chinese herbs) collects its data a different way to arrive at the same end, and devises a treatment plan that will alleviate symptoms and regulate the cycle so it becomes predictable and pain-free.
Menstrual irregularities can show in the cycle itself, and or in a specific condition: • Doesn’t get a period at all (amenorrhea) • PMS and/or painful periods (dysmenorrhea) • Period is continuous (menorraghia) • Endometriosis • PCOS • Pelvic inflammatory disease
What We Do
Eastern medicine uses gentle, natural and safe methods for correcting irregularities. Acupuncture, herbal formulas, and additional tools of the trade are used to influence hormonal balance and make reproductive structures more functional. Additionally, from an eastern medicine point of view, information about a woman’s cycle provides helpful clues in general about a woman’s general health. Having regular periods set the woman up for an easier time conceiving and paves the way for an uneventful menopause, reasons enough to safeguard one’s health given the opportunity.
