The “PMS Monster”-more help

There is mounting evidence for the efficacy of acupuncture to relieve PMS.

Traditional Chinese Medicine offers many options for the “PMS Monster”. I will explain specifically how the acupuncture part of Chinese Medicine can help reduce the monster to an angel.

Many of the symptoms of PMS occur due to fluctuations of the hormonal system. In some individuals these fluctuations are drastic and the other body systems have difficulty regulating. The result is symptoms sometimes miserable symptoms resulting in a “Monster”.

Acupuncturists treat people with PMS based on an individualized assessment of the excesses and deficiencies of qi located in various meridians. In the case of PMS, a qi deficiency is usually detected in the liver and spleen meridians. Other blockages or imbalances may be occurring in other parts of the meridian system as well. Many treatments include moxibustion (a technique in which the herb mugwort is burned over specific acupuncture points).

In conclusion acupuncture results in balancing out the meridian system and making flow of blood and energy more smooth which in turn stabilizes these hormonal changes. The result the transformation of “Monster” to “Angel”. It also provides deep relaxation that helps to calm the mind.
