Women's Health

Justin has a post-graduate diploma in TCM gynaecology and obstetrics from the Women's Natural Health Clinic, London. Since his diploma in 2011 he's been working on researching a fertility book/website which covers the latest Western science and explains how Chinese medicine is used in this field.

Women's health has a long tradition of treatment in Chinese medicine and a wide variety of conditions usually respond well. Chinese medicine is particularly effective at regulating the systems of the body and restoring balance. This is a natural fit for many women's health issues as the dynamics of the menstrual cycle can so easily get out of equilibrium. Women's conditions that often respond well to Chinese medicine include:


  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Amenorrhoea
  • Anovulation
  • Bacterial vaginosis
  • Blocked Fallopian tubes
  • Candidasis (thrush)
  • Cervicitis
  • Cystitis
  • Dysfunctional uterine bleeding
