Achy Cramps and Crazy Mood Swings: Dysmenorrhea Relief and Acupuncture
Acupuncture has been known to offer a stabilizing effect on the reproductive hormones in the body, opening the way for women to seek out this potent alternative therapy to alleviate a host of other health issues. According to Natural News, a substantial number of studies have shown that Acupuncture helps reduce the sometimes intense cramping pain of the menstrual condition called dysmenorrhea. Many women suffer from dysmenorrhea during their younger years and usually gets better as they age. Generally, the condition is considered normal though the pain can be immense to the point of crippling, such that one would be compelled to skip school or work. Aside from abdominal cramping, heavy menstrual flow and lower back pain, dysmenorrhea also comes with headache, nausea, and diarrhea or constipation.
