Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is effective for improving women’s health and has been in use for more than 2,000 years. TCM can treat issues related to menstrual disorders, chronic and acute pain, fertility, pregnancy, and menopause.
A key tenet of TCM is balance in the body, particularly the harmony of qi (body’s energy flow), blood, and yin and yang. Any discomfort experienced by a woman during her menses indicates an internal imbalance. TCM treats the illness by getting to the root of the problem. Typical forms of treatment are acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Generally, within three months, the patient will notice improved health.
The transition into menopause can be uncomfortable for many. Fortunately, TCM treats multitude of symptoms as the balance of yin and yang changes and the menstrual cycle slows. Some frequently treated conditions include anxiety, depression, hot flashes, insomnia, low libido, night sweats, and vaginal dryness and itching.
