Included are sections on prevention, diet, exercise, and relaxation therapies.
Among American women in their twenties, endometriosis is the leading cause of infertility.
Among the general American female population, endometriosis is the most common cause of infertility after fibroid tumors. It is estimated that endometriosis effects 15% of American women of reproductive age.
The number of married couples in American unable to conceive has climbed from 15% to 18% in the last decade.
As Dr. Bruce Holbrook has said, “Chinese medicine can cure most diseases that Western medicine treats surgically, with far less traumatic techniques. A common example is appendicitis, the herbal-medicinal cure of which is a matter of course. Another is endometriosis – the Chinese curing of which should be sufficient alone to make the adoption of Chinese medicine in the West a Feminist issue.”
This book explains why endometriosis and infertility are on the rise in contemporary Western society and describes how traditional Chinese medicine diagnoses and treats these two, often related conditions. Not only does it describe the professional Chinese medical treatment of these conditions, but it also includes sections on prevention as well as diet, exercise, and relaxation techniques.
The traditional Chinese medical treatment of endometriosis and infertility should be considered by every American woman suffering from these problems.
