Health Issues/Symptoms Connections

Leukorrhea Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for leukorrhea. It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "leukorrhea" is rarely designed with the resulting "leukorrhea" exclusively in mind.

For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.

Within TCM, "leukorrhea", is potentially related to the following diagnostic patterns - liver and gallbladder damp heat, liver fire, liver qi stagnation, liver yin deficiency, spleen qi deficiency among many other possibilities and/or layered combinations.

When developing an acupuncture protocol a practitioner is very often focusing on the causal diagnoses in Chinese Medicine terms, not on the condition itself. A potential range of underlying factors and approaches for leukorrhea are described in our acupuncture protocol page - "acupuncture for leukorrhea - treatment protocols " .

Some acupuncture points are considered "empirically" related to a specific condition or diagnostic pattern. While this would rarely, if ever, dictate the entire composition of a treatment, the following points should be considered, possibly even more so within the context of acupressure:
