Review - Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine for Women's Health

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine for Women's Health: Bridging the Gap Between Western and Eastern Medicine by Katheleen Albertson

Effective health care for women is crucial. Women have suffered for years as Western medicine suggests drugs or surgeries to ease symptoms. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers natural resolution and has successfully treated gynecological diseases, infertility, a variety of illnesses and health problems facing women for over 5,000 years.

This book explores the potential value of TCM so that women can consider their treatment options. It also clarifies and broadens their knowledge of how TCM works and resolves gynecological, reproductive and menopausal disorders naturally and completely. This book also addresses:

  • Amenorrhea
  • Irregular or painful menstruation
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Pregnancy - related problems
  • Perimenopause
  • Insomnia
  • Heart Disease
  • PMS
  • Infertility
  • Menopause
  • Incontinence
  • Vaginal itching
  • Headaches
  • And more
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine for Women's Health examines nutritional and lifestyle tips to help you make better, more informed health choices, while correlating emotional health, such as stress, overwork, exhaustion and depression with physical health.

The goal of this book is to empower women so they become aware of the many successful treatment outcomes achieved by TCM and understand its potential benefits. Doing so would decrease the discouragement and despair felt by many women who cope with chronic health problems every day. Despite evidence of its effectiveness, women do not usually consider TCM as a treatment alternative until after receiving failed Western treatment. TCM and Western protocols can be used, and are used, concurrently.

It is a woman's right to consider TCM as a primary part of her health care. Its use can help many women - and men - overcome many health disorders.
