Who We Help

Women's Health

Historically there has been a lack of research in regards to women's health. Our bodies are complicated. Our mission here at The Medicine Tree is to provide treatment solutions to women.

We specialize in Gynecological and Reproductive issues and pride ourselves in continuing our education and research in this area so that we are always using the most advanced methods that we can.

Eastern Medicine has been used successfully for thousands of years to regulate hormones and issues with the menstrual cycle such as:

  • painful periods

  • PCOS

  • Endometriosis

  • irregular periods

  • heavy bleeding 

  • clotting 

  • PMS

  • Menopause

  • and more...

 

We are able to do this without the use of invasive solutions like birth control or surgery.

Fertility issues are on the rise.  About 12% of women aged 15-44 in the U.S. have difficulty getting pregnant or carrying a pregnancy to term. Too often we hear the diagnosis of "unexplained infertility" and we feel fortunate to be able to help those women conceive. Once pregnant, we have the tools to help aid in protecting the pregnancy and prevent miscarriage.

Acupuncture and responsibly sourced herbs prescribed by an experienced practitioner help treat a variety of female specific issues by:

 

  • increasing blood flow and raising oxygen levels in the reproductive organs

  • improving egg quality

  • building an adequate endometrial lining

  • encouraging a full discharge of that lining without pain and clots

  • regulating the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Ovarian (HPO) axis

  • decreasing stress response and improving mood

  • balancing hormones

  • increasing energy

  • improving quality and quantity of sleep

  • increasing chances of success when using IUI or IVF

 

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine form a holistic approach that treats the whole person and not just individual symptoms of disease.
