How does acupuncture work?
Acupuncture affects hormone levels to bring about balance. This is especially evident when treating menopause, women’s health challenges, and infertility.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs have treated fertility for thousands of years. The earliest records detailing the benefits of traditional Chinese medicine for increasing fertility are found in Chinese medical literature from 11 AD. These techniques regulate the menstrual cycle, invigorate the sperm and enhance the whole body’s function.
Women of all ages can benefit from acupuncture care: memopause, infertility, cramps, PMS, menstrual cycle, pain, irregular periods, etc.
I am a 32 year old female going through early menopause. In my early 20s, I started to have irregular menstrual cycles and slowly over the next 10 years, my cycles were growing further apart. At times, I couldn't remember when I had my last period. I was advised my gynecologist to take birth control pills to strengthen my bones and occasionally shed my uterine lining to prevent from getting cancer. Only while I took these pills did I have my monthly period.
Prior to meeting Dr. Zhang, I went off my birth control pills to see if I could menstruate regularly on my own and conceive. However, I was not able to menstruate and after several exams, a fertility doctor confirmed that I was in early menopause. Due to a friend's recommendation to try Chinese medicine, I started to see Dr. Zhang. She had me start on daily consumption of herbal tea for 5 months and followed up with weekly acupuncture sessions. After two months of acupuncture with herbal tea, I had my first period. I continued with my acupuncture treatment and herbal tea and after another month, I had my period again. I am very surprised by my results so far and I will continue my treatment.
