Many women are surprised to find out that acupuncture and herbal therapy can help to regulate, as well as address other associated symptoms related to their menstrual cycles. Acupuncture and herbal medicine are safe, natural, and hormone-free ways to correct hormonal imbalances. The use of Chinese medicine to treat the menstrual cycle can be traced back to writings on bone and shell fragments from 1600 B.C. during the Shang Dynasty.
Menstrual irregularities can include:
Early periods, late or long periods, irregular periods, heavy periods, light periods, spotting in between periods, amenorrhea (no period), painful Periods, PMS
There are many reasons that cause the endocrine system to become imbalanced:
- Emotional changes, such as anger, stress, or excessive worrying
- Long term use of antibiotics or oral contraceptives
- Poor diet – the body may not have the right nutrients to have a regular cycle
- Insufficient rest and sleep
To regulate the menstrual cycle, a diagnosis will be made based on health history, pulse and tongue diagnosis, and lifestyle. The average time for treatment is 3-6 months as it will take time for the body to rebalance its energetics. Adding herbal therapy to your treatments will enhance the therapeutic effects and shorten the treatment time.
