Women's Health / OBGYN

Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture help women overcome symptoms and pain related to menstrual cycles and hormonal imbalances. The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes acupuncture as an appropriate treatment for cramping, morning sickness, vaginitis, and more.

Acupuncture and herbal medicine can also effectively treat endometriosis, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), interstitial cystitis, ovarian and uterine cysts and fibroids, breast lumps and cysts. It can also help with menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes, mood swings, psyche changes, irritability, depression, osteoporosis, urinary incontinence, vaginal atrophy, and changes in libido.

Acupuncture and TCM offer holistic approaches to managing women’s health and pelvic-floor-related conditions such as endometriosis. Acupuncture can help regulate the body’s hormonal balance and alleviate nausea by stimulating specific acupoints related to digestion and relief. Traditional Chinese herbal remedies may also be recommended to address underlying imbalances contributing to morning sickness

Cramping

Cramping refers to the involuntary contraction of muscles, often causing pain and discomfort. It commonly occurs in the abdomen, legs, or back. It can be caused by various factors such as dehydration, electrolyte imbalances, menstrual periods, or underlying health conditions like endometriosis or irritable bowel syndrome.

Morning Sickness

Morning sickness is a common condition experienced during pregnancy, characterized by nausea and vomiting, typically occurring in the early hours of the morning but can persist throughout the day. It is often associated with hormonal changes, a heightened sense of smell, and increased sensitivity to certain foods or odors.

Vaginitis

Vaginitis refers to inflammation or irritation of the vagina, often causing symptoms such as itching, burning, abnormal discharge, and discomfort during urination or intercourse. It can be caused by infections (bacterial, yeast, or viral), hormonal changes, allergies, or irritants like perfumed products or douches.

Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a chronic condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus, causing pelvic pain, painful menstrual periods, infertility, and other symptoms. The exact cause of endometriosis is unknown, but hormonal imbalances, immune dysfunction, and genetic factors may play a role.

PCOS

PCOS is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age, characterized by enlarged ovaries with small cysts on the outer edges, irregular menstrual cycles, excess androgen levels, and symptoms like acne, weight gain, and hirsutism (excessive hair growth).

Interstitial cystitis

Interstitial cystitis, also known as painful bladder syndrome, is a chronic condition characterized by bladder pain, urinary urgency and frequency, and discomfort in the pelvic region. The exact cause of interstitial cystitis is unknown, but it may involve abnormalities in the bladder lining, inflammation, or dysfunction of the pelvic nerves.

Ovarian/uterine cysts and Fibroids

Ovarian and uterine cysts are fluid-filled sacs or growths that develop within the ovaries or uterus, while fibroids are non-cancerous growths that spread in the uterine wall. These conditions can cause pelvic pain, pressure, abnormal bleeding, and fertility issues.

Breast Lumps and Cysts

Breast lumps and cysts are benign growths or fluid-filled sacs that develop in the breast tissue, often causing pain, tenderness, and swelling. While most breast lumps are non-cancerous, they can still be concerning and may require evaluation by a healthcare professional.

Menopause

Menopause marks the end of a woman’s reproductive years, typically occurring in her late 40s to early 50s, and is characterized by the cessation of menstruation and declining levels of estrogen and progesterone. Symptoms of menopause can include hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, vaginal dryness, insomnia, and changes in libido.
