Period pain, perimenopause and infertility are common reasons for women to seek the health of a natural medicine practitioner. Often women are already taking a range of natural medicines before they seek our help – either self-prescribed, or prescribed to them by another practitioner. Having an understanding of how these natural medicines work from a Chinese medicine point of view can give you greater insight into how your patient’s pattern of disharmony is being affected by these substances, and allow you to better prescribe acupuncture or herbal medicine to support them.
