Acupuncture for PMS
You know that Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) can be a distressing problem for you … and those around you! But did you know that the symptoms of PMS are signs of an unhealthy menstrual cycle?
Caused by hormonal changes and imbalances throughout the cycle, PMS can cause a whole range of symptomatic complaints. Some of the more common symptoms experienced: Irritability, Headaches/Migraines, Cramps, Anxiety/Depression, Weepiness, Breast tenderness, Intense Salt/Sugar Cravings, Bloating and Digestive irregularities, with many women experiencing many of these symptoms at the same time. PMS can even become debilitating, causing many women to be unable to function in their daily life.
Chinese medicine draws no distinction between physical signs and emotional ones. Both are seen as stagnation of Qi and/or Blood and as such premenstrual mood change is treated very similarly to breast tenderness, bloating or cramps. They all reflect stagnant energy. This is why when the period arrives and the blood begins to flow, the energy all begins to move and the premenstrual symptoms can suddenly disappear.
