6 Effective Shoulder Impingement Exercises For Pain Relief And StrengthNovember 2, 2023
Tired of your dealing with an irregular menstrual cycle? Is it getting in the way of you conceiving?
Have you tried everything under the sun to keep our menstrual cycle regular and consistent? Perhaps you’ve tried seed cycling with no success or perhaps become dismayed that you can’t even digest multiple daily doses of the seeds in the protocol leaving you feeling disappointed and seemingly without a way forward. If you’re trying to conceive an irregular cycle and not knowing when and if you ovulate can make it all the more difficult to accomplish this all important life goal for many couples.
There is hope thanks to ancient wisdom with a modern touch!
This is where acupuncture swoops in to save the day! I have been using this amazing treatment for some time to help women harmonize their cycles and help with anything from very light, watery periods, excessively long cycles, delayed or missed periods due to everything from stress to other health concerns such as PMDD, thyroid diseases, PCOS, excessive spotting before and after periods and mid-cycle spotting, also known as “mittelschmerz” – a rarely severe cyclical pelvic pain sometimes accompanied by spotting or discharge.
How it works – without getting too deep into the Traditional Chinese Medicine weeds!
This unique protocol is administered on a weekly basis to correspond with and support the specific hormones that the body is working with at the time just like seed cycling. Each week we work with the 8 Extraordinary Vessels, which are special meridians unlike the 12 Regular Meridians like the Lung or Stomach meridians you might already have heard of and are responsible specifically for reproductive and emotional health are “opened” to best facilitate natural hormonal cycles. What’s great about these treatments is that we can keep needles very conservative to keep you comfortable, often just one needle per limb inserted into very powerful acu-points, a few in the scalp and ears and once in a while on the abdomen itself to help anchor the intention of the treatment into the focus area – your reproductive area just below the belly button. When working to strengthen and harmonize a menstrual cycle acupuncturists typically like to work with a patient for at least 3 months to ensure lasting results. If that seems like a long time or a lot of treatments to commit to then consider how long you’ve already been struggling to balance your hormones and the disappointment you will inevitably feel when your fertile years slip through your fingers. I wouldn’t wish that kind of despondency on anyone.
If you’ve tried all the cures and remedies you’ve ever heard of with little to no success and more importantly no baby (yet!) or just want to skip the trial and error approach and get serious by incorporating trusted traditional medicine such as acupuncture, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at the Prenatal Clinic and we’ll get to work to have your mind, body, spirit and cycle back on track fast!
In good health,
