Chinese medicine – both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine – can be extremely helpful in treating a variety of women’s health concerns.
Women’s health has been a speciality throughout Chinese medicine’s history. Numerous ancient texts, going back over 1000 years, comprehensively detail women’s anatomy, physiology, diagnosis and treatment for a wide variety of women’s issues. As a result of thousands of doctors treating millions of women throughout this long history, Chinese medicine has both an excellent toolbox and track record for addressing women’s health issues in a holistic way.
From adolescents dealing with hormone fluctuations through menstrual issues, fertility, postpartum, the transition of menopause and beyond, Kate Blalack enjoys supporting women of all ages at her clinic in Boulder, Colorado.
Modern research confirms the efficacy of Chinese medicine for women’s health issues.
The landmark 2014 NIH Cochrane study concludes:
There is preliminary data indicating acupuncture may improve menstrual health and coping for women experiencing delays falling pregnant. There is experimental data showing that acupuncture can influence female reproductive functioning.
