Melbourne Acupuncture for Treatment of PCOS
As a hormonal disorder that affects around 5-10% of women that are in a childbearing age, PCOS is usually characterised by symptoms that feature above average levels of male hormones in the blood stream. As a result, cysts that are filled with fluid develop inside the ovaries, often leading to polycystic ovarian syndrome and the interruption of the menstrual cycle. Women who experience this often find they have irregular or absent periods, and in extreme cases, infertility.
PCOS treatment from a highly qualified and experienced practitioner
PCOS treatment at our Melbourne clinic is conducted by Dr. Cui, who is exceptionally qualified to treat women with this condition. In most cases, acupuncture is extremely effective for more minor cases that don’t include severe health concerns. This treatment can also help to relieve symptoms relating to weight gain, tension, headaches and uncomfortable bloating.
For Melbourne women experiencing these symptoms, our treatment can assist in stimulating the reproductive system and organs to positively influence surrounding blood flow. Needles are positioned along the acupuncture meridians to help return hormone levels to normal standards. It can be evident that acupuncture, in collaboration with Chinese herbal medicine, can dramatically improve fertility rates in those who suffer from PCOS.
Teenage girls and PCOS treatment in Melbourne
Of the up to 10% of women suffering from PCOS in Melbourne and across the country, teenage girls make up a large part, perhaps as high as 50% according to recent research. More often than not, Western medicine often uses the birth control pill as adolescent PCOS treatment, which can have long-term side effects, impacting on fertility, as well as the other well-known health issues.
Dr Cui believes acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine offer alternative treatments for teenagers, avoiding the potential side effects of taking the birth control pill from an early age.
