pms & menstruation
Are you ready to say hello to smooth, regular cycles?
Are you tired of not knowing when your period will come? Are you ready to say good-bye to the constellation of bothersome symptoms before your period?
Welcome to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurveda; your natural and effective tools to help lessen the pain and significantly reduce or eliminate these symptoms. While Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda do not view hormones the same way Western medicine does, these systems of natural medicine can profoundly help to regulate menstruation, balance hormones, and ease the symptoms of PMS that so many of us experience monthly. In fact, according to the US Department of Health and Human Services over 90% of women experience PMS symptoms. 90%! That is almost all of us!
Acupuncture and Ayurveda can help with:
- Irregular periods, late and early periods
- Menstrual cramps
- Mood swings and emotional changes
- Back pain
- Breast tenderness
- Digestive changes
- Heavy or scanty periods
- Other female reproductive conditions, such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, and PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)
Herbal medicine, dietary and lifestyle changes can also help to regulate the menstrual cycle, especially combined with acupuncture. Finding the right combination of herbs and other changes is essential since every woman is unique and solving menstrual cycle dysregulation does not typically respond to a “one size fits all” approach.
