Pregnancy - Basics

Pregnancy is the term used to describe a woman's condition when she is carrying a growing fetus, generally lasting about 40 weeks from the beginning of the last menstrual cycle to childbirth. The primary sign of pregnancy is one or more consecutive missed periods, though taking a pregnancy test is the most definitive way to determine if a woman is pregnant. Other symptoms of pregnancy include nausea, morning sickness, fatigue, sore nipples and breasts, frequent urination, mood swings, food cravings and headaches.

Pregnancy - Acupuncture Protocols

The treatment of conditions with acupuncture can be a complicated endeavor that should only be undertaken by individuals with a deep understanding of the underlying Chinese Medicine theory (and/or whatever system being used for treatment). There are many approaches, but generally speaking few viable approaches are involved on a point to condition basis. Rather using proper diagnostic procedures the patients diagnostic pattern is ascertained and that is what is treated. The protocols listed here exemplify some of these clinical approaches.
