Womens Health Questions #1

Question: What can Chinese medicine do for menopause?

Answer - Article 1: Menopause Diet

Excerpt: "Chinese medicine considers all premenstrual and perimenopausal symptoms to be signs of ill-health. The biggest factors in determining your comfort through this time will be the dietary and emotional health you have maintained throughout your adulthood. Even if you haven't lived perfectly, there's still hope!"

Answer - Article 2: Menopause Herbs

Excerpt: "A November 2002 study of herbs and other natural remedies for menopause has been getting a lot of press. Particularly of note are its assertions that black cohosh is the only herb shown to help in menopause. We could incorrectly assume then that no herbs help for menopause. However, there are some problems with that conclusion. Let's take a look at them."

Womens Health Questions #2

Question: What can Chinese medicine do for osteoporosis?

Answer - Article: Osteoporosis

Excerpt: "Osteoporosis, literally 'porous bones', is a gradual lessening of bone density, resulting in bones that are thinner, more porous and less able to support the body."

Womens Health Questions #3

Question: What can Chinese medicine do for premenstrual syndrome?

Answer - Article: PMS

Excerpt: "Premenstrual syndrome, or PMS, has become a household term in recent years. Despite this fact, it is still a condition that is not fully understood. What we do know is that it tends to occur after ovulation, the midpoint of the menstrual cycle, during the last 3 to 14 days of your cycle."

Womens Health Questions #4

Question: What can Chinese medicine do about fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue?

Answer - Article 1: Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia Treatment

Excerpt: "(Reader question) I have been suffering with Fibromyalgia for the past 5 years. I have tried many different treatments with little to no improvement. I have recently been going to an acupuncturist. It is very costly, and I am not seeing much if any improvement. The acupuncturist says it will take at least 6 months for noticeable improvement. Does this sound right to you?"

Answer - Article 2: Fibromyalgia, Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Massage for

Excerpt: "Most patients want to do whatever's going to be most effective at the least cost. I can't see any other reason to worry about how many times you'd have to visit an acupuncturist, so I'm going to say more about FM treatment in terms of cost-effectiveness."

Womens Health Questions #5

Question: Where can I find out about systemic Candida infection?

Answer - Article: Candida and Chinese Medicine

Excerpt: "With Candida, you not only need to look at diet, but may even need western drugs if it's very serious. After killing off the excess yeast, you should restore balance and get into a personalized pattern-balancing lifestyle, diet, and exercise plan."
