Menstrual Disorders


Amenorrhea is the absence of menstruation, often defined as missing one or more menstrual periods. Primary amenorrhea refers to the absence of menstruation in someone who has not had a period by age 15

According to Oriental medicine amenorrhea can occur due to particular organs weakness. Such dysfunction can be found during Japanese medical body health exam. Kidney’s weakness, liver blood weakness or stagnation, or spleen weakness are the most common reasons to be addressed by acupuncturist after body examination.

By strengthening the weak organs and balancing their functions acupuncturist will help to initiate the normal menstruation cycle, period and blood flow.


Dysmenorrhea is severe, frequent cramping during menstruation. Pain occurs in the lower abdomen but can spread to the lower back and thighs. Often the cramping passing by after the blood clots, in small or large size are passed.

According to our clinical experience the blood clots formation happens because of liver dysfunction – blood deficiency or energy or blood stagnation. And as mentioned above, kidneys and spleen function will be checked and taken care of if necessary. When the problem will be addressed by acupuncturist, the clots formation will be stopped and the blood flow normalized, and the woman will not experience either passing clots or having cramps anymore.


Menorrhagia is heavy menstrual bleeding that might last more than 7 days. It is critical for every woman to liquidate menorrhagia as soon as possible. Loosing too much of blood which is essential for normal human body function as well as loosing essential minerals necessary for health homeostasis depleting energy and physical strength.

It is easily can be regulated with acupuncture. Moreover, overly heavy blood flow can be stopped almost instantly. Every woman should understand that menorrhagia is a disharmony that should be addressed as soon as possible. Reach out for help without hesitation.

Clinical Relevance

Menstrual problems could be avoided. The most important for a woman is the mind and body balance. The mindset when is disturbed by stress of different kind directly affect health of particular organs You can learn how to create a positive mindset and control your mind balance by reading the pages 19-49 and 61-64.

I also recommend you to read about liver on the pages 83-94, spleen on the pages 95-107, and kidneys on the pages 108-123 in my book, Your MindBody Alliance & The Truth About Acupuncture.

Our clinical experience shows that people who are not educated in anatomy and physiology are not aware of how to preserve their health. The lack of knowledge and understanding how mind and body correlate leads people to feel out of control over their own health. Reading this book everyone becomes knowledgeable enough to withstand any body health problem and preserve one’s health.
