Acupuncture can help address a wide range of women’s health issues and greatly improve a woman’s quality of life. Particularly, acupuncture can be very beneficial as patients experience hormonal or life changes specific to the female body.
Acupuncture can be combined with Chinese Herbs to address female issues beginning as early as puberty. Issues such as acne, heavy periods, irregular cycles, pre-menstrual tension, hormonal headaches, mood swings, cravings, and emotional dis-regulation. All these symptoms can be soothed and managed through TCM herbs and acupuncture.
Aside from TCM herbs and acupuncture there are other holistic ways to manage menstrual symptoms. Before your period, eat cooked and warm foods and avoid raw and cold foods such as ice cream, iced drinks, and sushi. This is to lessen the energy needed to warm the food once it enters your body. By eating warm foods the body’s circulation is not interrupted attempting to warm and digest the items and lessens uterine cramps.
Examples of good period meals: oatmeal, soup, cooked vegetables, and cooked protein.
