Women’s Health and Infertility


Chinese medicine is excellent for addressing many concerns for women.

This includes everything from a smooth, painless period, to a regular, fertile cycle, or a harmonious menopause. Details about a woman’s feelings, physical sensations, and bodily fluids are the basis for determining the imbalance. Gynecology was a subspecialty of Chinese medicine established in the Song dynasty. It was said that a good gynecologist could determine a woman’s internal imbalance based just on her menstrual details.

A thorough evaluation by one’s gynecologist can be complimented with a Chinese medicine evaluation. With acupuncture and herbs, a gradual shift in the disharmony is achieved. Symptoms that are persistent with Western treatment can often yield to this alternative approach.

PMS problems such as bloating, anger, anxiety, cramps, headaches, backaches, digestive problems can be addressed.

Infertility can be treated based on the underlying pattern of imbalance. Determination of the pattern can be done with BBT charts, tongue exam, and pulse diagnosis. Chinese medicine is a slow, steady approach, so the process may take some months. Acupuncture and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) are also know to be effective compliments to ART and IVF. Improving the health of both parents can lead to a better chance of conception, implantation, and health of the child. Acupuncture can also be helpful for improving sperm counts and sexual function.

Many women have had symptoms of menopause such as insomnia, night sweats, flushes, and anxiety improved with acupuncture and herbs.
