You may be surprised to learn that Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture have been solved women’s issues for the past 4,000 years and continue to do so even today. In today’s times, we mostly rely on Western medicine; however, it struggles to get any real results. Take pain relief medication which have some very nasty side effects, go on the pill or put up with it. Where as Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM as it is known has some real health benefits and can certainly restore the overall health of women, who usually go through a lot of body and health changes throughout their life.
Several studies which have been carried out in top medical centers show that acupuncture is the right answer to most female distresses such as PMS, painful periods, menopause, infertility, uterine fibroids, etc. Acupuncturists believe that it is the disruption or stagnation in the flow of Qi or energy that causes the pain and hence, acupuncture brings about the normal flow of Qi through the insertion of fine needles which gradually reduces the symptoms of women’s issues as the blockages are addressed and the body can heal in its own natural way.
Most women think that their monthly stomach cramps and menstrual pain or PMS which they go through are common and happens to everyone. This is not true and these issues should never be overlooked. You will be delighted to find that acupuncture is the miraculous balm for the treatment of cramping, bloating, headaches and mood swings etc which usually occurs during menstruation.
Menopause is a period in a woman’s life which affects her both physically and emotionally and acupuncture offers the right answer to get through this period. When a woman reaches menopause age, her body starts conserving energy for her own vitality. Menopause treatment using acupuncture is mainly to treat the symptoms experienced and it varies from woman to woman depending on the symptoms that she is experiencing.
Many women also suffer from PMS or the premenstrual syndrome which occurs 7 to 10 days prior to the onset of menstruation. Mood swings, feeling tearful, breast tenderness, bloating, irritability and cramps are often associated with this syndrome which is a result of a hormonal imbalance in the body. Most women suffer this syndrome in milder terms; however, there are some who go through severe PMS which affects their daily routine.
Acupuncture can the answer to infertility and certainly helps to overcome the problem of blocked fallopian tubes. Certain women experience the problem of absent periods which is known as Amenorrhea which actually indicates hormonal imbalances and poor health condition of the body. In acupuncture the belief is that amenorrhea occurs due to the blockage of kidney and liver Qi and treatment usually comprises of several sessions. Electro-acupuncture can be an important form of treatment for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and ovarian cysts are also effectively treated through acupuncture by reducing the size of the cysts and also relieve the pain suffered due to the cyst.
In all, it has been advocated that Asian women suffer less from menstrual and menopausal issues than their Western counterparts due to the use of acupuncture.
