What is women’s health?
Women’s health is a specialized field dedicated to preventing and treating illnesses and chronic diseases affecting women. This field includes the unique health needs that arise from women’s complex and ever-changing reproductive system.
Menstruation, infertility, pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause require specialized care, but women also share many of the same health conditions as men. For example, heart disease and cancer are the top causes of death for women and men.
What services might I receive from women’s health care?
Yanina Acupuncture Clinic approaches women’s health care from the holistic perspective of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). TCM seeks to heal your body, mind, and spirit using natural treatments such as acupuncture, cupping, nutritional therapy, and herbal medicine.
Yanina diagnoses and treats the full scope of women’s health care needs. However, she specializes in fertility enhancement, in vitro fertilization (IVF) support, pregnancy support, menstrual disorders, and hormone imbalances such as polycystic ovarian syndrome.
How does traditional Chinese medicine support women’s health?
By its very nature, TCM naturally heals common and complex health conditions that develop in women. The treatments used during TCM affect your body’s hormones, neurotransmitters, endorphins, and vital energy. As a result, your body naturally regains balance and heals.
Herbal medicines treat women’s health problems such as urinary tract infections, menopause symptoms, anxiety, and insomnia. Some herbal treatments may stimulate egg production in women who have a hard time getting pregnant.
Some of the benefits of acupuncture for women’s health are:
- Infertility (fertility enhancement)
Acupuncture boosts the blood supply to your reproductive organs, balances hormones, improves the health of your uterus, nourishes eggs, and enhances the quality of sperm.
- Menstrual disorders
Whether you have irregular cycles, heavy bleeding, or cramps, headaches, and pain during your periods, acupuncture can treat these problems and regulate your menstrual cycle.
Traditional Chinese medicine is highly effective for relieving menopause symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and insomnia.
During the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, you need to nurture your body and relieve stress, especially if you had a hard time getting pregnant or conceived with the help of IVF.
It’s perfectly safe to have acupuncture during pregnancy. Yanina uses acupuncture to reduce anxiety and stress, lower the risk of miscarriage, and relieve common pregnancy problems like heartburn, morning sickness, fatigue, and musculoskeletal pain.
