The Holistic Approach Of Oriental Medicine Towards Women’s Health

For thousands of years, Oriental medicine has understood women’s health, and the issues associated with it. Today, this comprehensive approach to well-being and health is remarkably effective in the treatment of women’s health problems including all forms of menstrual-related problems like depression, mood swings, headaches, and cramping, and all types of reproductive and post-reproductive problems such as post-partum depression, childbirth-related problems among many others.

One-of-a-kind Bodies

The basic approach of Oriental medicine towards maintenance of health and prevention of disease is to consider the uniqueness of each person, and according to this approach, there is no such thing as a ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution to a health problem. There are, however, Chinese herbal remedies that are designed to treat the specific needs of young women, and herbal formulas that are designed to specifically target issues affecting women in their post-reproductive years.

One-of-a-kind Problems

Women have their own unique reproductive systems that are susceptible to specific types of health problems. For instance, as a group, women are more prone to kidney-related illnesses and conditions than men: Oriental medicine is ferociously effectively in addressing these problems through a combination of Chinese nutritional therapy, Chi Kung or Qi gong, acupressure, acupuncture, and Chinese medical herbs. All these are natural effective therapies that come with zero side effects.

The Power of Oriental Medicine

An example of Oriental medicine’s uncompromising effectiveness in helping improve women’s health can be seen in the case of a 33 year old woman whose menstrual period prematurely ceased. Using its own unique diagnostic techniques, Oriental medicine can determine exactly why her menstruation stopped and then avail of its own unique therapeutic strategies in order to restore her menstrual cycle.

A Better Quality of Life

Oriental medicine can help women maintain and regain their health by tackling their own unique health problems in a safe, effective and natural way.
