At East West Fertility we treat many women’s and men’s health disorders that can occur throughout life. We use acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and nutritional therapies to regulate male and female hormones and allow the body to correct imbalance. According to traditional theory and promising research, Chinese Medicine is a safe and effective therapy for women’s health and men’s health.
Chinese Medicine (CM) has been used to correct gynaecological imbalances for thousands of years. The earliest record of a CM gynaecological text is dated at around 5th century BC. Contemporary CM practitioners have inherited detailed documentation of the development and treatment of women’s health disorders. The treatment strategies and formulas used centuries ago by renowned CM gynaecologists are still used effectively today. Clinical evidence supports the use of CM for women’s health. Research into CM gynaecology is a relatively new field, however some favourable studies have demonstrated its therapeutic role in gynaecology for conditions like period pain, PMS, amenorrhea (no periods) and infertility.
CM views women’s health as a delicate interaction of balance and fluctuation between Yin and Yang, coupled with harmony in both the internal organs and reproductive channels. The fluctuation of Yin and Yang is a twofold process which happens cyclically throughout the month and also throughout the different life phases a woman passes through: puberty, pregnancy, motherhood, menopause, and beyond. Certain factors can easily upset the delicate balance and lead to gynaecological disorders. Environment, diet, emotions, lifestyle and age are just some of the things that can dramatically affect the fluctuations of Yin and Yang. This is because a woman’s health is underpinned by hormonal changes, and menstruation at certain phases in her life.
That is why the menstruation reveals much about a woman’s health in her reproductive years. The menstruation and a woman’s life phase give important diagnostic information about how to best address her health needs, including changing nutritional needs.
