Women are the greatest creatures in the world, the world becomes more colorful because of them. Men can create more value and develop more potential because of them. It is they who can make men sons, husbands and fathers, and the transformation of roles is made possible by the contribution of women.

It is such a beautiful species that one thing happens to them every month, and that is menstruation. This period is painful for women and painful for the man next to the woman.

The temper that explodes at the slightest point, and the moaning that screams tummy ache and back pain at every turn, is like a cat scratching at your heart. As a fellow woman, you definitely want to get a big piggyback genuinely concerned, unfailingly considerate. However, it is often the opposite of what you want, "drink more hot water" is a bullshit phrase you can always hear, the last thing you want to hear and will happen every time.

As a gay man it, this time really do not know what to do. I really just read online or heard others say that menstrual cramps are cold and drinking hot water is very effective. If you don't want to be a part of the team, you can be a part of the team. If you're not sure what to do, I'll give you ginger tea. What? Too bad? Then I'll go buy painkillers in the middle of the night.

So you went out in the middle of the night to look for pharmacies everywhere, and finally found a pharmacy after a lot of trouble, bought painkillers. Girlfriend ate down, still can not stop the pain, he cried and said you do not love her, buy the painkillers are fake, this time you do not know how to do.

It does not matter, today you met the Dragon, in the Dragon here menstrual pain is a small problem, has helped many young people to solve this problem, to help them repair the emotional rift, and even more love than before. The key is that you did not meet me earlier and did not understand this simple and effective method earlier. This method is acupuncture.

Acupuncture has been used to treat menstrual cramps for a long time, and our ancestors used to have pain in the ancient past. They weren't as lucky as you are back then because they didn't meet Dragon back then. After all, Dragon was not yet born then!

However, they were also lucky enough because they had the Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine and also acupuncture as a method, and they also had many more amazing doctors than Lung, what with Hua Tuo, Bian Ji, Zhang Zhong Jing and the like, all of whom Lung worshipped and admired.

Without further ado, let's talk specifically about how acupuncture treats dysmenorrhea!

The efficacy of acupuncture in treating dysmenorrhea has been confirmed by most clinicians, and in terms of pain relief, acupuncture is superior to painkillers.

For dysmenorrhea, the most common painkiller taken is ibuprofen, but ibuprofen often causes adverse reactions such as stomach pain, indigestion, burning sensation in the stomach, nausea, vomiting, and can even cause stomach bleeding in patients with peptic ulcers.

So, painkillers are still risky, so is acupuncture risk-free?

The risk of acupuncture lies in your fear, fear of needles is a situation that occurs to most people, after all, the sharp acupuncture needles piercing into the flesh will still hurt, which of course is related to the level of the doctor. The more skillful the doctor, the more the needles are not painful.

Nowadays, most of the girls' dysmenorrhea belongs to primary dysmenorrhea. Primary dysmenorrhea is dysmenorrhea without organ lesions, that is, the instruments do not find organic lesions, at most they will observe uterine congestion during dysmenorrhea.

This type of dysmenorrhea you cannot cure with medication or treat surgically. This is where the superiority of acupuncture comes into play.

Acupuncture is a treasure left by the ancestors, and those who can use it can make it benefit the world, while those who cannot use it will tarnish the reputation of Chinese medicine. Acupuncture treatment for dysmenorrhea is to play the effect of soothing the meridians, activating the blood and regulating the blood.

Chinese medicine believes that dysmenorrhea is mostly due to the blockage of the meridians, "if it does not pass, it hurts", or the inability of Qi and blood to nourish the uterus, "if it does not glory, it hurts". Acupuncture is used to unblock the blocked meridians so that the Qi and blood can nourish the uterus, and when the uterus is sufficiently nourished, the Qi and blood are harmonized and no longer painful.

Acupuncture often starts a week before menstruation, often using abdominal and lumbosacral acupuncture points, as well as special effective points for dysmenorrhea.

The abdominal acupuncture points often include Qihai, Guan Yuan, Zi Gong, Zhongji; the lumbar back often uses Kidney Yu, Life Gate, and 17 vertebrae; the extremities and experience effective points include Sanyinjiao, Diji, Taichong, He Gu, and Foot San Li.

Of course, for patients with cold condensation in the meridians can be treated with warm acupuncture or moxibustion. Warm acupuncture is to insert moxibustion at the handle of the needle after it has been pricked into the acupuncture point to exert the effects of both moxibustion and acupuncture.

Moxibustion has the effect of warming the meridians and dispersing cold. For patients with excessive cold in the body, moxibustion exerts its effect through the heat effect and the warming effect of moxa leaves.

In general, acupuncture is more effective in treating dysmenorrhea and can completely solve the patient's pain through three menstrual cycles. What about for working people who don't have so much time to run to the hospital? So then we came up with a way to not have to come every day to lance the needles, acupuncture point embedding.

The buried thread is the use of absorbable protein thread, or synthetic bio-absorbable thread into the acupuncture points, and continue to play a needle effect. It is easy to operate, has a long healing time, does not require removal of the buried threads, is less painful, and is simple and effective.
