What is Reproductive Organ Blood Flow and Hormone Balancing?
The complicated hormonal interactions between your brain, reproductive organs, adrenal, pituitary, and thyroid glands result in the menstrual cycle and all that comes with it. This complicated hormonal reaction is delicate, and when disrupted in even the slightest way, can become unbalanced. There can be many causes: stress, for example, reduces blood flow to the reproductive organs and negatively affects hormonal balance.
Acupuncture is a highly effective in helping to increase blood flow to reproductive organs and to influence hormonal regulation.
In the treatment of period pain, acupuncture can open the blockage of Qi and Blood, clear blockage of meridians, and balance internal organs. By appropriately balancing hormone levels, treatment ensures estrogen and progesterone levels remain within normal range. Acupuncture, further, increases endorphin levels in the blood, blocking the transmission of pain signals, and increasing adrenocorticotropic hormone levels. Acupuncture helps influences hormonal regulation centers of the brain and autonomic nervous system so as to improve hormonal states gently and naturally.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
As a treatment in compliment with acupuncture or as an herbal treatment on its own, Chinese Herbal Medicine is highly successful in regulating the endocrine system and relieving discomfort gently and naturally. Chinese herbal formulas are specially tailored for each individual case and are safe to take during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. Some herbal formulas are surprisingly effective in supplementing deficiencies and saving pregnancy.
Nutrition and Diet
A healthy and balanced diet is essential in the treatment of unbalanced blood flow and hormone regulation, as food intake directly impacts the body’s natural ability to regulate hormones. Eliminate, or avoid, foods with trans-fatty acids, refined sugars, caffeine, alcohol, and tobacco.
Lifestyle and Mind-Body Medicine
In addition to acupuncture and nutrition, learning relaxation techniques are greatly beneficial to general health and wellbeing. Chronic, or acute, lifestyle stress can have a wide variety of negative effects on the body, including reproductive organ blood flow and hormone regulation. Physical and psychological stress can make existing symptoms worse and delay overall internal healing.
Techniques that elicit the relaxation response (a state of deep relaxation in which the heart rate, blood pressure and breathing rate decrease, muscle tension relaxes, stress hormone levels fall, and the mind becomes tranquil), and relaxation techniques like meditation and yoga may aid greatly in bringing balance to mental and emotional states. Practicing focused deep-breathing, meditation, yoga, tai-chi and other activities are among those that can increase your chances of a healthy life and pregnancy. Listening to music, focused breathing, or being outside in nature are also effective methods of managing stress.
