Last time, we discussed how Acupuncture and Chinese herbs help endometriosis. Today, we will discuss the treatment plan. Dr. Zhou recommends weekly treatments for three months, once the symptoms are stabilized and the treatment will be reduced to maintaining the results. For people wanting to conceive, weekly treatments will be six months or longer according to the severity. Chinese Medicine categorizes endometrial lesions into different patterns. Dr. Zhou will do assessment using the principles of Chinese Medicine according to the pulse, tongue, and symptoms. In each case, Dr. Zhou will devise a treatment plan that will address the symptoms using Chinese herbs, Acupuncture and dietary/lifestyle advice according to each individual’s patterns presented.
During the treatment process, Acupuncture and herbs tonify the activity of the Yang Qi which reabsorbed the endometrial lesions or at least slows down their development. It also breaks up blood stasis, removes inflammation by clearing the damp heat, and also moderates autoimmune reactions. Acupuncture reduces stress by quieting the mind and emotions which are important as part of pain management. Endometriosis is also related to hormonal imbalances. For example, in the case of estrogen dominance, it is important to relieve the body of excess estrogen by resolving Liver Qi stagnation.
In order to prevent further endometriosis from forming, Chinese medicine treatment is deeply rooted in improving the pelvic health and function. This is one of the major reasons Dr. Zhou emphasizes commitment to weekly treatments for those who suffer from Endometriosis.
