MENSTRUAL PROBLEMS – HOW WE CAN HELP
Every woman’s experience during their menstrual cycle is different. Some women seem to breeze through it, never really feeling out of sorts, while others dread those few days.
Sometimes bleeding can be so heavy it can really limit movement while others find their menstrual flow to be too little, maybe just a little more than spotting.
Some women also experience severe abdominal cramps and intense migraines which really impacts their life and productivity.
There is good evidence that acupuncture can soothe the symptoms of general menstrual problems. Some of the most common menstrual issues or condictions I see in clinic are:
- Heavy periods
- Painful periods
- Irregular periods
- Polycystic ovaries (PCOS)
Unlike over the counter medication that only suppressed the physical symptoms, acupuncture looks at the cause of the problem. Hormonal imbalances may be triggered by so many factors and must be treated with great care and caution. The gentle and non-invasive nature of acupuncture treatments means it is the safest option to address menstrual irregularities without any of the nasty side effects.
