Irregular Cycles

Some women believe that menstrual irregularities are a normal part of life and will eventually resolve by themselves.  However, irregular, heavy or scant menstrual periods are not usually considered normal. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, irregular menstrual cycles are usually manifestations of certain imbalances in a woman’s body. In many cases, when the menstrual period is regulated, it is common to see other health-related conditions improve as well such as backache, irritability, depression, headaches, cravings, etc. Menstrual irregularities can be treated using a combination of acupuncture and herbal medicine. In addition, we suggest dietary modifications, lifestyle changes, and customized nutrient.
