Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine in the Treatment Gynecology Related Problems: Bridging the Medical Gap!

By       (Page 2 of 5 pages)       No comments

Western medicine, on the other hand, sees a dichotomy between the body and emotions. In fact, Wikipedia defines "gynecology" as the medical practice dealing with the health of the female reproductive system (uterus, vagina, and ovaries). So what happens to the rest of our bodies and mind? Hopefully we are seen as more than that. But are we?

Western medicine uses a linear approach to solving problems using medications as their first line of defense. If you tell your doctor you are unhappy, or depressed, out comes the prescription pad!

Conditions commonly treated with TCM:

  • Amenorrhea (absent periods).
  • Anxiety.
  • Cervical dysplasia.
  • Depression, irritability, moodiness.
  • Dysmenorrhea (painful periods).
  • Endometriosis.
  • Fibroids.
