Women's Health

women's health pic

Women's health is different from men's due to biological, social and behavioral factors. The fact that Gynecology and Obstetrics are practiced as independent medical specialty indicates the uniqueness of women's health. Women's biological factor contributes in large part to their health issues. Their hormonal fluctuation determines their physical and emotional characters and sometimes causes illness. This factor plays an important role in response to a treatment and thus the outcome of a treatment.

Women have unique social status and responsibility. Their financial status and family responsibility can have impact on their overall health. Women may consume less alcohol and have less accidents, thus reducing risks for certain health issues. On the other hand, their sensitive emotion may put them in high risk of certain illness.

Traditional Chinese medicine and Women's Health

The history of Gynecology and Obstetrics in traditional Chinese medicine dated back to 2000 years ago, and first professional Chinese book on Gynecology and Obstetrics, “Jing Xiao Chan Bao”, was written in the 10th century. Since then, many TCM theories and clinical practice have been developed to address women’s health issues: menstruation-related problems, pregnancy-related illness, postpartum diseases, menopause syndrome and non-reproductive diseases such as cancers/tumors, cardiovascular disease, urinary tract infection/vagina infection, depression /anxiety. Although female hormones play an important role in these health problems, women don’t necessarily accept synthetic hormonal therapy due to side effects from hormonal replacement. Instead, women often look for help from natural therapies such as herbal medicine and acupuncture. Traditional Chinese medicine is only alternative treatment that has its unique medical system consisting of etiology, pathology, diagnosis and treatments. It is 1000 years of cumulative experience in women's health!!!. Traditional Chinese medicine thrives on its unique balance concept and few side effects.

How we successfully improve women’s health

While women’s health is mostly associated with their hormonal fluctuation, it is affected by emotion as well. This is reflected in TCM treatment where physical imbalance and emotional factor are addressed simultaneously. Unlike conventional medicine, Chinese medicine views each patient as unique person who has unique need for her health. The fact that women`s health is unique during different period of life requires special attention to their unique need in different age. For example, a 20 year-old young lady has different health issues than one at age of 55. Even If they present same complaint as “heavy period”, TCM treatment is different for different age of women, since the cause is different.

At A1 Clinique Chinoise, we take time with you during first office visit and evaluate your health state and lifestyle, which usually lasts 20 minutes to 60 minutes depending on your complexity of your health state. After complete analysis of your situation, our experience practitioners are able to make accurate TCM diagnosis and provide you with personalized TCM treatments and dietary guidance. Yi Ding Yuan, well-known TCM practitioner and the founder of the clinic, will present you a personized treatment plan in which acupuncture, Chinese herbs, manual therapy or nutritional supplements are recommended to you based on your unique heath condition. We are confident that his 30 years of experience, passion and knowledge make the treatment successful.
