    Understanding Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder​ – PMDD/PMS

    Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) and Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) are challenging conditions that affect many women during their reproductive years. PMDD is a severe form of PMS characterised by intense emotional and physical symptoms that can significantly impact a woman’s quality of life.

    The exact cause of PMDD is not fully understood, but it is believed to be linked to hormonal fluctuations and neurotransmitter imbalances. The symptoms of PMDD typically occur during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle and subside with the onset of menstruation. Understanding the complexity of these conditions is the first step towards finding effective treatments.

    The Role of Acupuncture in Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder​ – PMDD/PMS

    Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical practice that involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow and promote natural healing.

    In recent years, acupuncture has gained recognition as a complementary therapy for managing PMDD and PMS. This holistic approach focuses on restoring balance within the body and mind, helping to alleviate the physical and emotional symptoms associated with PMDD/PMS.

    Acupuncture can aid in regulating hormones, reducing stress, and improving overall well-being, making it a promising option for those seeking relief from PMDD and PMS.

    Symptoms Of Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder​ – PMDD/PMS

    PMDD and PMS share many common symptoms, including mood swings, irritability, depression, anxiety, bloating, breast tenderness, and fatigue. However, PMDD symptoms are more severe and can even lead to disabling emotional and physical distress. These symptoms can disrupt daily life and relationships. Acupuncture offers a natural, non-invasive approach to symptom management by addressing the root causes of these discomforts, offering relief and improved quality of life.

    Causes Of Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder​ – PMDD/PMS

    The precise causes of PMDD and PMS are not entirely clear, but they are thought to be related to hormonal fluctuations and neurotransmitter imbalances. Hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle can affect serotonin levels, leading to mood swings and emotional disturbances. Acupuncture may help regulate these imbalances by targeting specific points on the body that influence hormone production and neural pathways, contributing to the management of these conditions.

    Numerous clinical studies and research have explored the effectiveness of acupuncture in managing PMDD and PMS. While more extensive research is needed, preliminary findings indicate that acupuncture can provide significant relief for many women. The therapy’s holistic approach may improve emotional stability, reduced pain, and overall well-being. These promising studies provide a strong foundation for considering acupuncture as part of a comprehensive treatment plan for PMDD and PMS.
