IVF Acupuncture
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine treatment has proven to be extremely effective in helping support IVF patients. A review published in the British Medical Journal in 2008 found that Traditional Chinese Medical (TCM) treatment can increase success rates of IVF by 65%. Chinese medicine greatly helps IVF patients by improving one’s general wellbeing, regulating the autonomic nervous system and therefore maintaining an appropriate balance in hormones required for a successful pregnancy. It also relaxes the uterus, increases the uterine blood flow and thickens the uterine lining, so that it is more receptive to receiving an embryo. Sometimes, IVF acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine has proven to be so effective that patients may even conceive naturally before the IVF process begins. TCM treatment provides new hope for many who may have difficulty conceiving, and has helped many infertile and IVF patients achieve their dream of bearing a beautiful, healthy baby.
 
Polycystic ovary syndrome
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), also known by the names polycystic ovarian syndrome, polycystic ovary disease, hyperandrogenic anovulation syndrome or Stein-Leventhal syndrome, is a complex endocrine and metabolic condition that affects 5%–10% of women of reproductive age. It occurs when the ovaries produce too much of the male hormones (androgens) that cause women to have a variety of symptoms.
 
Endometriosis
Endometriosis refers to a condition in which endometrial tissue, which normally lines the uterus, implants and grows outside the uterus. It is a common gynaecological disease, and is believed to affect approximately 10% of women at some stage during their menstruating years. 30-50% of cases of infertility are believed to be caused by endometriosis.
 
Menopause
Menopause, also known as the 'change of life', is the end of menstruation (when a woman's periods stop). This means a woman's ovaries stop producing an egg every month. She will no longer have a monthly period or be able to have children.
 
Asthma
Asthma is a common condition usually associated with allergy. The incidence of asthma in Australia is particularly high. Statistics show one in 6 children and one in 9 adults in Australia suffer from asthma.
 
Hay Fever
Hay fever is a commonly seen condition in Melbourne. The scientific term for hay fever is called Allergic Rhinitis. This means inflammation of the mucosal lining of the nose caused by an allergy. Allergic Rhinitis includes Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis, where symptoms often occur in spring and summer, and Perennial Allergic Rhinitis, where symptoms occur at any time of the year. When people say that they have hay fever, they generally mean that they suffer from Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis.
 
Chronic bronchitis
Bronchitis is the inflammation of the bronchi in the lungs. Chronic bronchitis, as the name suggests, is defined as a persistent, long term case of bronchitis. The symptoms, namely coughing and mucus production may return each year, and can last for at least 3 months. It is a serious health problem and occurs most commonly in late adult life.
 
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a very common intestinal disorder. It involves abdominal pain with changes in bowel habits. IBS is described as a ‘functional’ illness — the intestines aren’t functioning appropriately although there is no structural damage found through diagnostic testing.
 
Acupuncture for Ulcerative Colitis
Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that affects the lining of the large intestine (colon) and rectum. The inflammation usually begins in the rectal area and lower part of the colon, and may spread to the entire large intestine over time. Its onset is usually gradual. Usually, an attack begins with an increased urgency to defecate, mild lower abdominal cramps, and the appearance of blood and pus in the stools. The severity of the condition may vary.
 
Stress, Depression and Anxiety
Stress is a reaction created when we react to certain events. It is your body’s way of protecting you by preparing to meet challenging situations with focus, stamina and alertness. When working properly, it helps you stay focused, energetic and alert. The events that provoke stress are called stressors. The human body responds to stressors by activating the nervous system and specific hormones. The hypothalamus signals the adrenal glands to produce more of the hormones adrenaline and cortisol, and release them into the bloodstream.
 
Acupuncture for Migraine Headaches
Headache is one of the most common ailments. It is a non-specific symptom, which means that it has many possible causes. It can be a symptom of a number of different conditions of the head and neck, and acupuncture for migraine can help address these underlying ailments.
 
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), is characterized by prolonged fatigue associated with a wide range of accompanying symptoms. It affects one’s everyday life, and doesn't go away with sleep or rest.
 
Meniere's Disease
Meniere's disease, also known as idiopathic endolymphatic hydrops, is a disorder of the inner ear that affects balance and hearing. It is characterized by episodes of vertigo (dizziness), hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ear), and a feeling of fullness in the ear. It is believed to be caused by a problem with the pressure deep inside the ear; however, this has not yet been proven. It was first described by a French physician, Dr. Prosper Meniere, in 1861.
 
Bell's Palsy
Bell’s palsy, or idiopathic facial palsy, is an acute disorder of the facial nerve, resulting in weakness or paralysis of the facial muscles on one side of the face. The condition is a peripheral paralysis, rather than one of the central nervous system diseases. It is only diagnosed if other possible identifiable causes of these symptoms are ruled out, such as stroke or brain tumour.
 
Arthritis
Arthritis is a very common disease. It is a form of joint disorder which involves the inflammation of one or more joints. Common symptoms of arthritis include pain, stiffness and inflammation of the joints. The severity, location and the progression of arthritis varies from person to person.
 
Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia (also called fibromyalgia syndrome or FMS) is a chronic condition which causes pain and tenderness in the muscles, ligaments and tendons all over the body with no obvious signs of inflammation or damage.
 
Shingles
Shingles is an infection of a nerve and the area of skin around it, caused by the herpes varicella-zoster virus (VZV). The same virus also causes chickenpox.
 
Chinese Medicine for Eczema
Eczema (also known as dermatitis) is a common skin disease which causes the skin to become itchy, red, scaly, dry and cracked. Both males and females of any age can contract this condition, and Chinese medicine for eczema can help alleviate any dermatitis symptoms, regardless of gender or age.
 
Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a commonly seen chronic and inflammatory skin condition that results in red, thickened, flaky patches of skin covered with silvery scales that may be sore or itchy. It can occur on many different areas of the body, but most commonly seen on the skin of the elbows, knees and scalp. Psoriasis can also affect the nails (nail psoriasis), or the joints that may cause arthritis (psoriatic arthritis).
 
Pain management
Pain is one of the most common complaints which physicians see, and can come in many forms, including headache, fibromyalgia, joint pain, lower back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, neck pain, tennis elbow, menstrual cramps, etc. Pain is not a condition in itself, but rather an indication of a problem somewhere in the body. Usually, the location of the pain within the body corresponds with the location of the problem it is indicating, for example, elbow pain caused by an inflamed tendon underneath; however, cases in which pain is experienced in a location away from the problem also exist, such as leg pain resulting from a prolapsed disk pushing on a nerve in the back. In addition, the intensity of the pain usually provides an indication of the severity of the underlying problem.
