“By treating the root of disease
we can cure the branch”
Women have long been struggling with unnecessary pain and discomfort under the guise of it being “normal”. From extreme period pain to hot flushes, irritability and fatigue women have always had the ability to soldier on through their health issues due to necessity and lack of time available for self care. Women truly are modern day warriors! However we at The Which Doctor believe every woman deserves to live her best life, be it pain free or using her boundless energy for the projects and people she loves!
What is Women’s Health?
Women’s Health is a broad term that covers an array of conditions including but not limited to; dysmenorrhoea, amenorrhoea, menopausal symptoms, adrenal malfunction, Polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis, thyroid dysfunction and stress related disorders. These conditions have become more and more prevalent over recent years due partly to the increase in advanced diagnostic equipment but mainly due to the decrease of health in the general public.
There are many underlying factors that contribute to hormonal health in women and these may include; stress, diet, lifestyle, cosmetics and skincare, pesticides in food, allergies and food intolerances to name a few. Perceived stress is a major cause or contributor in a lot of these conditions which is where The Which Doctor may be able to help. Acupuncture has many hypotheses for it’s mechanisms of action and one is that it may help decrease cortisol levels in the blood stream. This is why after an acupuncture treatment most client’s leave the clinic feeling relaxed, happy and continue the rest of their day in a state of bliss.
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine has been used for thousands of years to treat gynaecological and women’s health conditions. By combining this ancient approach with thorough studying of blood tests, we can gain a deep understanding of the underlying imbalances/deficiencies that may be causing these conditions and help stop women struggling needlessly.
