For 5000 years, gynecology related conditions have been effectively treated with the use of TCM. Western medicine as were know it has only been in existence for 200+years.

Doctors in these ancient times were referred to as "breast doctors" or doctors who treated diseases "under the skirt."

In those days, extreme cultural conservatism prevailed and exams were not permitted.

Women's reproductive health includes a long life span. Everything from puberty related issues, menstrual irregularities, fertility, pregnancy, post partum, through menopause. IN TCM there is a strong correlation between the brain and reproductive centers, the heart and the uterus.
