Have you considered treating premenstrual syndrome or "pms" with acupuncture? In the Orient, one of the most important methods of treatment is herbal medicine, closely followed by acupuncture. Premenstrual syndrome, female and male infertility, menopausal symptoms, endometriosis, pelvic pain, abdominal and back pain related to the cycle, migraines which relate to the menstrual cycle, and many related gynecologic problems can be helped by acupuncture and Oriental herbal therapy.
My own experience suggests that acupuncture and Chinese herbology are more effective and much less unpleasant and dangerous than pharmaceutical drugs to treat premenstrual syndrome. Compared to these methods of treatment, traditional Oriental medicine is also reasonably priced and has fewer side effects.
Acupuncture therapy and traditional medicines prepared from different roots and herbs can be very effective in relieving the symptoms of many complex gynecologic disorders like premenstrual syndrome.
The treatment of premenstrual syndrome with traditional medicine requires a commitment for at least 3 cycles to determine the exact imbalance and the most effective treatment. The ideal is individualized treatment as even though the symptoms may be similar, the root of the disorder may actually be different.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine will generally help to reduce the pain and other symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome. We believe that the secret of improving health at a reasonable cost lies in the use of the ancient systems of traditional medicine for improving your health.
