Addressing Women’s Health Issues with Chinese Medicine

Throughout life, women face unique challenges to maintain optimal health and well-being, from managing premenstrual, ovulatory, and hormonal issues to addressing painful cysts, fibroids, endometriosis, and symptoms related to menopause.

Do you ever wonder relating TCM to women’s health?

How do TCM practices help women to keep the movement of life in a healthy groove? What possibly be the things a woman could do to avoid hormonal imbalance?

In TCM, Yin serves as the foundation for understanding the health of women. Blood is the major component of Yin because its function is to control women’s health. Incline with these, there are three vital organs for women the

  • Spleen – which controls blood, transformation, and transportation
  • Liver – responsible for storing blood and controlling the movement of qi
  • Kidney – controls reproductive system and stores essence

These three should always maintain their homeostasis to have regulated menstrual periods and avoid excess toxins in the body.

TCM promotes specific meridians that will purposely work best for women. Acupoints such as Zusanli point (ST -36) functions to generate qi and blood, prevent illness, and boost the digestive system. Next, Sanyinjiao Point (SP-6) for a feeling of heaviness, PMS, myopathy, insomnia, poor appetite, loose stools, dizziness, digestion, etc.

Acupressure provides a balanced hormone secretion, boosts immunity, increases the flow of qi, and helps the body to function accordingly. Just take time to learn and put it into practice. The good thing about it is that it could be done in the comfort of our homes and you don’t have to spend a single penny for it!
