A menstrual cycle is an excellent indicator of a woman’s health. Symptoms that we often call “normal” such as:
- Breast tenderness
- Loose bowel movements/constipation
- Unbalanced emotions
- Irregular Menstruation
are indicators of imbalance in Chinese Medicine. These imbalances have been successfully treated for thousands of years using diet, herbs and Acupuncture, with no side effects.
Chinese Herbs, Natural Remedies for PMS, Natural Fertility Treatments can all help support Irregular Menstruation.
Most recent developments in Western Medicine indicate that a menstrual cycle may only be needed a few times a year or prolonged use of the birth control pill show no ill effects. Often times we use the birth control pill to control irregular menstruation, painful menstruation and acne, not recognizing that the body thinks it is pregnant for 21 days of your cycle. This hormonal fluctuation may go on for years depending on your length of use and displays possibly links to:
- Yeast infections
- Emotional imbalances
- Muscular and joint pain
- Weight gain
Traditional Medicine seeks to educate women that healthy menstruation is gateway to greater long-term health. Not only for Fertility, but emotional balance, proper metabolism and longevity. Chinese Herbs, Natural Remedies for PMS and Natural Fertility Treatments are all area’s Fertile Way provides specialized care in.
How Can We Help?
Chinese Herbs: Most prescription drugs are derived from plants, tree, and fungus but can carry a long list of side effects because they are not naturally metabolized in the body. All our herbal products go through a rigorous testing process insuring the highest quality for our clients. The most common formula is Liu Wei Di Huang Wan.
EFT ( Emotional Freedom Techniques): This is an Alternative Intervention Technique utilizing the tapping of Acupuncture points while a client focuses on specific issues. This helps connect the right and left hemispheres of the brain, creating new neuro-pathways to help address belief systems that contribute to physical, mental and emotional imbalances
Flower Essences: Developed by the English Physician Dr. Edward Bach, Flower Essences along with Homeopathics enjoy a reputation of being highly beneficial and safe to use. They can be presented in liquid or sugar pill form. This modality helps to nourish the spirit, just as food sustains the human body.
Custom Formulas: After an initial consultation our pracitioners will continue to research your specific needs and formulate a capulated or tea formula.
Visualization & Affirmations: There is a large body of scientific evidence showing that the mind and body are closing linked. A fact that has been known for thousands of years in Traditional Medicine. Physical patterns are created in sympathy with mental patterns.
Acupuncture: Gaining ground in North America, Acupuncture can raise Serotonin Levels, balance the Immune and Endocrine System and provide mental and emotional support while calming the mind. Scientific evidence has shown it to be effective for Depression, Irregular Menstruation, Menstrual Cramping, etc.
Holistic Nutrition: Focuses on Natural Whole Food consumption addressing deficiencies through dietary sources. We recommend you follow one primary rule when choosing foods; consume foods as close to it’s original source as possible.
Acutonics: Much like Physiotherapists use Ultrasound to relieve pain we use the "original" version; tuning forks. Sound vibration in treament draws more blood and oxygen to the area, supporting healing and calming the mind. Intuitively we know sound heals through singing and listening. A unique treatment protocol that once experienced even the cynic won’t rival.
