Gynaecology & Fertility
Although Western medicine is good at diagnosis and describing the various changes in a woman’s body it can be limited in treating women’s diseases and is often restricted to “blanket” hormone based drug therapy such as The Pill, HRT, and those used for fertility treatment.
Traditional Chinese medicine provides an individual, pragmatic approach, with treatment options as varied as an individual’s symptoms. Therefore before embarking on hormone treatment for menstrual or fertility problems it may be worth trying acupuncture first. Research shows that acupuncture can provide significant improvement in some female's symptoms.
