Chinese Medicine is used by millions of women to tackle menstrual irregularities, painful menstruation, absence of menstrual periods as well as menopause. There is also a vast history of treatment strategies for endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), dysmenorrhea, amenorrhoea and many other menstrual issues.
All conditions are diagnosed by considering the woman as a complete and integrated person, ‘as a whole’. Your conditions are treated as they present in clinic but also can be diagnosed at the sub-clinical level. This means identifying the threat of a condition before it becomes a disease. At Empirical Health we abide by the Chinese Medicine principle that does not wait until a disease develops before treatment is administered – We aim to prevent the disease occurring in the first place.
