Irregular Menstrual Cycles


Acupuncture and herbs can help remedy ovulation problems and menstrual disorders by helping your body come to hormonal and endocrine balance.

Menstrual disorders occur when the body’s hormones are imbalanced. Acupuncture can help restore the balance among the hormones by enhancing the body’s flow of energy, and as a result, relieve menstrual symptoms. According to the ancient Chinese theorists if the body’s energy flow is correct then any menstrual disorders can be avoided.

If there is a free flow, there is no pain: if there is pain, there is no free flow. In Chinese medicine, the uterus and the liver are closely related. The liver maintains a free flow of the qi or vital energy of the body. The liver, spleen, and kidney channels run through the pelvis and all can effect menstruation . If any of these channels are blocked, congested or deficient, this will usually manifest in women as some sort of menstrual problem. Qi moves the blood, so with a lot of stress, the qi can become sluggish or stuck. The liver is intimately associated with the menstrual cycle because it must maintain the free flow of qi; for example, liver depression and stagnant qi in women almost always manifests as some menstrual-related problem.
