A woman’s life is intertwined with gender-specific health issues. The female physiology is very complex, accordingly, so are the health problems.

The TCM concept of Blood is very relevant in regards to women’s health. The Blood works with the Qi and represents the nourishing, moistening and cooling processes of the body. In cases of menstrual issues, a deficiency of Blood is the usual culprit combined with liver or kidney deficiency which causes a stagnation of the blood. Often there may be other underlying health issues present also exacerbating the problem. The TCM approach to women’s health has its focal point on menstruation. It is seen as an insight to the general wellbeing of a woman. Ideally, periods should be regular every month, last around five days with moderate bleeding, no fluctuations in mood or increase in pain.

While many have accepted slightly irregular cycles as the norm, and overlook these problems. It is highly encouraged to seek treatments for these problems since they can get exponentially more problematic in later life or affect one’s fertility. 

Our women’s health practice is inextricably linked with that of our fertility practice. Common problems we’ve seen are:
•    Dysfunctional Periods, Spotting or absence altogether
•    Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS)
•    Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
•    Uterine Fibroids
•    Menopausal Discomfort

Those afflicted with PCOS and uterine fibroids may often feel frustrated with the limited, temporary and often invasive treatment options available in Western medicine. TCM may offer a more temperate and sometimes more permanent solution
