Period problems have become so prevalent that they are often seen as ‘normal’. Whilst a little cramping and slight mood changes are to be expected, big symptoms are certainly not normal.
See endometriosis here.
Big symptoms include:
- Substantial cramping or pain
- Stabbing pain at all
- Large blood clots
- Heavy or scant bleeding
- Irregular periods
- Significant mood swings, irritability, anxiety or low mood
- Substantial breast swelling or tenderness
- Substantial bloating or water retention
- Back pain
- Diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting
- Substantial fatigue
- Any dizziness
If you suffer any of these symptoms it usually means that things are not working as they should be. Chinese medicine may be able to help.
Chinese medicine for period pain
From a Chinese medicine perspective, poor blood flow to the uterus, kidney function weakness, cold in the uterus, poor liver function and inflammation, are the most common culprits behind period pain.
We focus on treating to reduce or eliminate pain, normalise period temperature and get your body into a rhythm of producing more regular periods with normalised bleeding. Once these areas have been addressed, most people report the added bonus of a significant improvement in their energy levels.
Acupuncture and herbs
We use acupuncture, Chinese herbs and diet to improve blood flow to the uterus and lower abdomen, strengthen your kidneys (which have a large influence on your reproductive function) and your liver, warm your uterus and reduce inflammation naturally.
