Chinese Medicine, including acupuncture and herbal remedies, can help with vaginal dryness by addressing the underlying imbalances in the body that are contributing to the condition.
Vaginal dryness can be caused by a variety of factors, including hormonal changes, menopause, stress, and certain medications. Chinese Medicine views vaginal dryness as an indication of a broader imbalance in the body, and works to address this imbalance through a combination of acupuncture and herbal remedies.
Acupuncture can help by improving circulation and hormone balance, which can help to increase natural lubrication in the vagina. Additionally, acupuncture can help reduce stress and anxiety, which can contribute to vaginal dryness (Gao et al., 2020).
Herbal remedies can also be used to address vaginal dryness by restoring balance to the body and supporting overall health. For example, Chinese herbs such as ginseng and angelica can help to support hormonal balance and improve circulation, while herbs such as black cohosh and Dong Quai can help to relieve symptoms of menopause, including vaginal dryness (Xu et al., 2020).
