Acupuncture is a brilliant and beautiful system that addresses the entire system and can bring about remarkable change. Many know that acupuncture is helpful for treating pain, but I want to share with you some uses of acupuncture that you might find interesting.
1. Menstruation and PMS
Many women do not realize that PMS is not “normal” because it is so common. Pre-menstrual syndrome is pathological. When our bodies are in harmony there are no PMS symptoms.Most PMS symptoms are due to Liver imbalance, which is common due to modern lifestyle, including excessive consumption of stimulants, imbalanced diet, prolonged use of oral contraceptives and poor stress management. Acupuncture can help ease PMS symptoms and bring your body back into harmony. Acupuncture is also helpful for regulating menstruation otherwise, such as treating lack of menstruation, too frequent, heavy, irregular, painful, or prolonged menstruation. I have personal experience with this, as treatment of amenorrhea with acupuncture is what first wowed me into the study of Chinese medicine. Acupuncture and herbal medicine resolved first my amenorrhea, and secondly my PMS.
