TCM ON IRREGULAR MENSTRUATION
According to Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) and menstrual disorders are categorized under menstrual problems. Many women experience menstrual problems, such as mood swings, irregular cycles, blood clots, different coloring of blood, and cramps. Woman that experience physical pain caused by menstrual problems tend to turn to painkillers, but it is very clear that this is not the optimal solution. Moreover, as painkillers do not have a lasting effect, you may increase the dose more and more over time to get the desired effect.
What ate the causes of PMS?
- Emotional factors. Joy, anger, sadness, over-thinking, frightened, or scared;
- External factors causing harm to the body and mind. Harmful things may penetrate the Uterus and cause menstrual problems;
- Your lifestyle is changing or going through hardships. Changes that differ from a normal lifestyle can lead to kidney deficiencies or organ damage that impact our liver, spleen and kidney function. In turn, this may block a smooth blood flow for women, and thus, causes menstrual problems;
- Taking particular medication. Particular medicine (e.g., anti-psychotic medication, endocrine regulation of drugs, IUD medication, abortion medication) may also cause menstrual problems;
All of the above mentioned causes are excluded from abnormal bleeding in early pregnancy.
