Amenorrhea: What does not having a menstrual cycle mean?

By       (Page 1 of 4 pages)   No comments

"A" in Greek is the word for "negative," "men" is the word for "month" and "rhea" refers to "flow." Amenorrhea means "no menstrual flow" (absence of menstruation). In Chinese medicine, it refers to "no moon."

Rudyard Kipling said, "East is east and West is west and never the twain shall meet."

Today it is more important than ever to understand TCM (Traditional Chinese medicine which includes acupuncture and herbal medicine) as well as Western medicine. Today's reality integrates these two schools of thought to improve patient care. TCM gets to the root cause naturally with out the harsh affects of drugs.

We know that gynecology in China goes back as far as the early 1500 BC. Gynecologists were called "breast doctors" who treated diseases "under the skirt."

By taking advantage of this ancient, successful medicine, we resolve many gynecological health problems at its source, earlier in the woman's reproductive life, and perhaps bearing her from a lifetime of medications, infertility, or lack of hope.

For most women TCM is not sought as the first line of medical resolution. They seek out acupuncture and herbal medicine when all else fails; when they are the middle of fertility procedures, or when someone recommends TCM to them. We owe it to the women in our lives to recommend TCM for this condition. It is normal for menstruation to cease during pregnancy and breast-feeding. So, unless it is a structural or congenital health problem TCM provides solutions and restores your health.
