Yes... Acupuncture Can Help
I wish to take this opportunity to express gratitude toward the blessings that Mothers provide us all no matter who we are. Life and Love are their gifts and there is no equal. Mothers are busy caring, teaching and loving their families. Their stress can become harder to handle when their body becomes prepared to nurture their fertility. The Mayo Clinic states that 75% of menstruating women experience PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) and 10% of those women experience severe manifestations of this condition called PMDD. Changes in mood or emotions are common and even portrayed as "normal". Traditional Chinese Acupuncture has effectively treated challenges with women's fertility cycle for many centuries. Pain, changes in cravings and appetite and feeling "wired & tired" have gentile treatments that are safe with minimal side effects. Additionally, the effect of treatments are cumulative over time therefore require less intervention as the patient is restored to balance.
What the Mayo clinic does not mention is the link between our stress response and a woman's sense of wellbeing during menstruation. Like the symbol for Yin & Yang The Sympathetic & Parasympathetic nervous systems depend on, and control one another and require a balanced state. Stress changes how your body interprets balance. Stress also changes the chemical balance the hormone system utilizes. The adrenals and other glands do not function to nurture the fertility/reproductive system when the stress response is heightened or continuously elevated. In contrast your body feels that it needs to work on its own survival and interoperates fertility as an undesired state, a threat, which requires energy and resources to resist.
The wide range of signs and symptoms manifest where the individual woman is most deficient or blocked. Traditional medicine suggests we nurture the woman's digestion and free the dynamic of flow inside and outside the body to include practicing self-care and expanding their creativity. There is much more to share then this space allows. Please sign up for my free lecture, Ancient Insights on the Fertility Cycle, June 22nd from 7:00 - 8:00 pm.
