The Treatment of PMS With Chinese Medicine

In a previous article we defined PMS as a series of symptoms that affect nearly 85% of women of childbearing age. The symptoms included those of emotional and physical nature such as mood swings, tender breasts, amongst others. Read more about it here at: premenstrual syndrome.

While in Western medicine, the symptoms associated with PMS are considered to be the result of hormonal imbalance, Chinese medicine sees the syndrome as an imbalance of Yin and Yang of one or more organ systems. Treatment consists of first identifying which pattern of disharmony, and which organ system is at play through one or more time proven methods of diagnosis.
