Oriental Medicine and Women’s Health

Women’s health, and the problems that affect it, has been well understood by Oriental medicine for millennia. This holistic approach to health and well-being is exceptionally effective today in treating women’s health problems, such as:

  • All kinds of menstrual-related problems like cramping, headaches, mood swings, and depression.
  • Childbirth-related problems.
  • Post-partum depression.
  • The full range of health issues affecting women throughout their reproductive and post-reproductive years.

  • Unique Bodies
    Oriental medicine’s foundational approach to disease prevention and health maintenance is that each person is unique, and there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution to a health problem. For example, there are Chinese herb formulas that address the specific needs of young women, and others aimed at conditions experienced by women in their post-reproductive years.

    Unique Problems
    Women have unique reproductive systems that are prone to unique health problems. For example, women as a group, have higher instances of kidney-related problems and illnesses than men: problems Oriental medicine effectively addresses through a combination of Chinese medical herbs, acupuncture, acupressure, Chi Kung, and diet and nutrition. Effective remedies, without side effects.

    The Power of Oriental Medicine
    An example of the power of Oriental medicine as it relates to women’s health can be seen in a thirty-one year old woman whose menstrual period stops prematurely. Oriental medicine has diagnostic methods for determining why her menstruation stopped, and therapeutic methods for getting it to start again.

    A Better Quality of Life
    By addressing women’s unique health issues, Oriental medicine helps you regain and maintain a unique feeling of health.
