Recent research, as well as my clinical experience since 1983, has proven to me that acupuncture can be extremely effective for the following woman’s health problems. These include the acupuncture “face lift”, PMS, endometriosis, infertility, cysts, fibroids, breast augmentation and menopause.In addition, there are great clinical and scientific studies on acupuncture for low back pain, sciatica, fatigue and anxiety. To summarize some of my experiences:PMS Eileen, a 27-year-old psychologist, came to my office with symptoms of severe PMS, which were threatening to interfere with her relationship with her fiancé. She wanted to try out Acupuncture to take control of PMS issues.
After discussing her symptoms and taking a complete health history, it became evident that she had what is called “Type A PMS.” Type A refers to PMS where there is an overabundance of estrogen with a lack of progesterone. Her symptoms consisted of anxiety, irritability and mood swings. This is the most common type of PMS.Eileen’s Acupuncture treatment lasted three months and she received acupuncture sessions twice per month. She also took a Chinese Herbal supplement to balance her female hormones and detoxify her liver.After the three months of acupuncture treatments for PMS, she was 85% free from her original PMS symptoms and her relationship with her fiancé was flowing very smoothly. Eileen periodically came in for “tune-up” treatments, about once every three months, and reports she was still doing really well.
