Chinese Medicine for Women's Health: A Talk at Malaprop's
Please join me for an interesting discussion of women's physiology and health, from a TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) perspective. Women’s bodies and reproductive systems are more complicated than men’s and so more health problems occur for us.
In my 10+ years practicing I have seen so many different gyn conditions respond beautifully to acupuncture and Chinese herbal therapy, including ovarian cysts, PSOS, menstrual irregularities, cramping, hot flashes, emotional problems, headaches and amenorrhea. Complicated conditions, such as endometriosis also responds to Chinese medicine, given time.
Did you know that it is the stressful western lifestyle - go, go, go, drink more coffee, keep going & multitask - that causes many gyn conditions, especially PMS and peri-menopause? In Asian countries and the developing world peri-menopausal syndrome doesn't exist.
