Uterine prolapse is falling or sliding of the uterus from its normal position in the pelvic cavity into the vaginal canal. The risk of uterine prolapse increases with age as pelvic muscles weaken, and as a result of natural decrease in estrogen(less elasticity) at menopause.
Approximately half of all women older than 50 years whine of symptomatic prolapse, and studies estimate that 50percent of women who’ve given birth more than 1 time have some amount of urogenital prolapse. This issue is widespread, yet none that women generally discuss because of embarrassment.
Heavy lifting, or sitting or standing for extended periods of time can worsen this condition. Chronic cough, obesity, and chronic constipation increase the pressure on the pelvic floor and may also contribute, and although rare, uterine prolapse may also be caused by a pelvic tumor.
Symptoms of prolapse
A feeling like sitting on a small ball or a”bearing down” sensation. Difficult or painful sexual intercourse. Frequent urination or a sudden, urgent need to empty the bladder. Low backache. Protruding of the uterus and cervix through the vaginal opening. Repeated bladder infections. Vaginal bleeding or increased vaginal discharge.
Prolapse possibly accompanied by mental depression, fatigue, lethargy, general weakness, or diarrhea. It often occurs after childbirth, surgery or illness.
If that you have any signs or symptoms of prolapse seek TCM therapy. Early detection and treatment can reverse it and protect against surgery oftentimes. Every case differs, yet a more natural, holistic therapy can help you and increase your wellbeing. Bridging the difference between Western and Eastern medicine improves patient care.
How TCM functions
The TCM concepts of the organ systems have distinct and wider definitions compared to Western medication” Qi” in TCM reflects your energy or energy and TCM defines prolapse as”sinking Qi.” Deficiencies from the Spleen and Kidney systems are root causes of prolapse in TCM.
Acupuncture points open up the organ system pathways so Qi and blood flow throughout our entire body. This circulation of Qi and blood nourishes and supports the organ systems to overcome deficiencies such as prolapse. Using acupuncture points on the surface of your head, in a feeling,”pulls up” the prolapsed organ.
Acupuncture pathways traverse laterally and longitudinally through the body out. These interconnections and networks around the mind promote Qi and flow up. This is oversimplifying it, but an acupuncture needle onto the top of your head does draws that qi and energy upward towards the head… much like a magnet.
By increasing Qi, a “sunken” manhood is lifted. Additionally we use body points and frequently herbs to increase the result. One herbal formula, called “Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang, means”Raise that the Qi Formula,” that boosts the absence of tone of the smooth and skeletal muscles, and supportive cells, and proceed Qi upward. It is also can also be utilised to elevate your mood, improve brain clarity (brain fog) and your boost your spirits.
TCM professionals review your medical history, your signs and symptoms and run a pulse and tongue diagnosis. They identify a blueprint for your disease and choose a suitable acupuncture treatment protocol for you. This specific sort of care causes a higher percentage of success.
Every patient is treated uniquely. Herbal formulas are created especially for your routine of disease and frequently accelerate your rate of recovery. While western medicine provides surgery for prolapse, TCM works more naturally.
