Women have a unique physiology with extraordinary advantages, such as a longer life span. However, the very delicate female hormonal system can easily fall out of balance leading to a decline in good health.
Chinese medicine and acupuncture have been used for centuries to effectively treat Women's Health and gynaecological problems. At CompMed we listen to our female patients so as we can understand your health concerns and help you holistically to get on your way to a healthy, balanced and more fullfilling life.
Stress, anxiety, insomnia and fatigue
As you 'soldier on' through all it takes to be a woman in the 21st century, the deeper effects of stress and anxiety could be altering the hormones within you which can lead to health problems. Acupuncture helps to restore balance to the blood and hormone system used by your body to buffer and protect you from stress. Reduced stress equals better sleep, improved digestion, more energy and less anxiety.
Signs your gynaecological system is out of balance include: acne, bloating, breast tenderness, cramps, depression, heavy/irregular/light/missed periods, chronic pain, breast cancer, endometriosis, fibroids, PCOS, PMS, fertility problems. Women regularly accept these problems because they have seen the women before them suffer with such things but you do not have to suffer just because your mother did! At CompMed we use acupuncture and nutritional supplements to help rebalance your gynaecological system, which in turn may positively affect your entire wellbeing.
The Chinese view menopause as a time when yin declines and yang increases, leading the woman out of a passive phase into a more goal oriented phase of her life, where she will discover a richness of being, setting boundaries and sharing the wisdom of her mind. The West view it as a hormone deficiency. At CompMed we like the Chinese view, and we value the trust our menopausal women put in us to take them through to this next phase with comfort and relief of unwanted side effects. Acupuncture, nutritional supplements and Chinese formulas may be used to treat dryness, hot flushes, night sweats and poor sleep associated with menopause.
