Introduction by Malinda Gibbons

A better approach to Women's Health
Many people don't realize how powerful Oriental Medicine treatments can be for women's health conditions. In fact, for over 2,000 years, Oriental Medicine has treated women's health differently. Oriental Medicine holds that mind and body are one, and considers the whole person and her experience of life in diagnosis. These life experiences can manifest as disease in the body, and especially as gynecological problems in women.

What conditions can be treated with Oriental Medicine?
Most women's health conditions can be treated with Oriental Medicine. These include PMS, menopause, endometriosis, yeast infections, and bladder infections.

How can Oriental Medicine help with Menopause?
Menopause is a natural process that changes the balance of Yin and Yang in a woman's life. After menopause many women discover the yang side of themselves that they may not have previously experienced. Similarly, as men grow older, they tend to discover their yin side.
