Inability to menstruate for longer than 3 months is called Amenorrhea. This condition can be seen as a natural course in the life of a woman, or it can occur in the form of a disease.
Physiological Amenorrhea occurs during childhood, pregnancy, lactation and menopause. Amenorrhea seen apart from these is pathological. If a teenager is 17 years old but has not been menstruated, it is called Primary Amenorrhea. If she starts to see menstruation, then it is interrupted, it is called Seconder Amenorrhea.
Mechanisms of effect of treatment on menstrual cycle:
- Stress and other factors cause hypothalamus pituitary-over axis (HPOA) function to deteriorate. After the session we apply, the hypothalamo-hypophyseal axis is affected, resulting in the release of estrogen and progesterone from the ovary.
- Stress exposure stimulates the sympathetic nervous system, resulting in narrowing of the arteries to the ovaries. After the session the blood flow to the ovaries and uterus is increased.
- Acupuncture works by reducing the effects of Polycystic Ond Syndrome (PCOS)
– PCOS is one of the causes of female menstrual cycle deterioration. By reducing sympathetic nerve activity and balancing hormone levels, acupuncture has been shown to stimulate ovulation, reduce the number of ovarian cysts, and regulate the menstrual cycle in women with PCOS. It can also help to control secondary factors such as obesity and anorexia. In fact, all diseases begin as a consequence of the inability to send blood, oxygen, water, minerals and other essential substances, which are needed by a single cell, to be delivered to that cell, and remove the waste matter (allergen, toxins). A number of signals are emitted from the body as a result of the errors that occur in metabolism (E.g. fever, excessive sweating, fetor oris, nausea, constant fatigue, bowel problems etc.) The mistake starts here. We suppress these distress calls with pain killers, antifebriles, antiallergens etc. assuming them as illnesses. However, what needs to be done is to help the body through healing by activating its inner mechanisms. We believe that the healing of the patient will only result in the treatment of body, emotion, thought / subconscious and spirit as a whole. Amenorrhea is such kind of situation and in our clinic, not a single treatment, but a lot of methods together is the goal of success.
