Inflammation of the reproductive organs, often treated with antobiotics, can also be treated with acupuncture and TCM, be it inflammation of the uterus or the fallopian tube(s).
Such disorders can be caused by untreated STDs such as chlamydia or gonorrhoea or prior use of IUDs (intra-uterine devices); it may simply be a manifestation of an underlying deficiency causing a build-up of what TCM refers to as “Dampness” and/or “Heat” in the system, amongst others.
Acupuncture and TCM works to clear the Damp-Heat and move the Qi and Blood to clear the inflammation and infection (where present). In combination with Chinese herbal medicine, treatment can be very successful.
If you suspect any kind of inflammatory disease by experiencing painful urination, abdominal pain, lower back pain and/or fatigue, it is advisable to see your GP first for testing. You may or may not be given antibiotics depending on the severity. In any case, acupuncture and TCM can work very well to help rid the inflammation working with or without drug treatment.
