Acupuncture: A Cure for Cramps and PMS?

For years, I suffered from cramps and PMS before and during my cycle. After years of unsuccessfully attempting to suppress these symptoms with over the counter drugs like Aleve and Advil, I opted to try traditional Chinese medicine at the recommendation of a friend. On this episode of Conscious Living®, I visited healer Afsheen Nehoray, L.Ac., a Los Angeles based acupuncturist to see if this form of alternative healing could help.

During my session, he drew upon 10,000 years of Chinese healing wisdom and a Japanese style of acupuncture that not only alleviated my symptoms, but also empowered me with proactive tips for preventative menstrual health going forward.
