PMS is characterized by many physical, emotional and behavioral changes and symptoms. This problem afflicts around 80% of all women during the last week of their menstrual cycle. From a TCM perspective, PMS symptoms like mood swings, bloating, cramping and fatigue are primarily due to a non-smooth menstrual process. The primary reason for PMS and its symptoms is an imbalance or fluctuation in hormonal levels of women. All these symptoms begin approximately 7 to 10 days before menses appear and recede shortly after menstrual flow begins.
Treating PMS With Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs
Chinese herbs and acupuncture have been used for menstrual disorders for a long time. PMS therapeutic strategies always aim at resuming organ function, particularly the liver and kidneys, so that a smooth menstrual process is ensured. They are effective because they treat the root cause, so individuals can live without painkillers or period regulators.
