An irregular cycle can mean anything from heavy menses late menstruation to early scanty menses to mid-cycle spotting to amenorrhea. However, what all irregular cycles have in common is women either bleeding in a way she shouldn’t be or not bleeding in the way she should. In fact, many times irregular cycles include both bleeding when she shouldn’t and not bleeding when she should – for example late profuse bleeding or mid-cycle bleeding with scanty menstruation.
Treating Irregular Menstrual Cycles with Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs
There are many types of irregularities that can occur during the menstrual cycle and TCM differentiates them in order to create effective treatment strategies. An irregular cycle is always due to an imbalance of the liver and kidneys according to Chinese Medicine.
From my many years of experience, I find that the combination of herbal medicine and acupuncture treatments are most effective in dealing with irregular menstruation.
Acupuncture sessions are commonly on a weekly basis. Herbal medicine is given in a concentrated powdered extract and comes as a formula of many herbs combined customized for the individual. This makes the medicine extremely effective and free of the side effects.
