Uterine Fibroid
Natural Therapies - Acupuncture, Acupressure & Chinese Herbal Medicine

In western medicine, its exact cause is unknown. However, according to the theories of Chinese medicine,
Uterine Fibroid follows patterns of imbalance associated with
Qi (vital energy), certain organs and energetic
qualities of the body.

Excess:
  • Qi Stagnation
  • Blood Stasis
  • Cold toxin accumulation in uterus (cold uterus)
  • Damp-Heat in uterus

Difficiency:
  • Kidney Yin Deficiency
  • Kidney Yang Deficiency
  • Liver Yin Deficiency
  • Qi and Blood Deficiency

Clinically, Uterine Fibroid is seen as more of a combination of both an excess and deficient conditions. The
organs involved include the Spleen, Kidney and Liver with a subsequent disharmony of Chong and Ren
channels. We more address the underlying causes of Uterine Fibroid. Our strategy is to resolve the
Stagnation/Stasis and expel the Cold and Damp toxin, and to treat any underlying factors contributing to the
development of Stagnation/Stasis

Together, acupuncture and herbal remedies provide a powerful treatment option for patients with fibroid.
Treatment must first and foremost be based upon your individual diagnostic pattern. Thus A comprehensive
consultation is a must in order to find what your individual under pattern condition is and then decide what
acu-points to select and what herbs to mix up to create a proper customized acupuncture and herbal remedy
treatment plan.

Acupuncture, herbal remedies, nutritional, and mind-body approaches are all about bringing ones body back
into its natural balance. Rather than a forceful override, we use acupuncture, herbs, foods, and mind-body
exercises to gently adjust the body’s intrinsic hormonal pathways to let its innate healing systems handle the
situation.
