Menstrual Disorders


Menstrual Disorders, Inflammations of the Reproductive Organs

All healthy women menstruate during their fertile years. The time between the first and last menstrual period spans ~3040 years. During this time, typical repeated changes occur in the endometrium and the menstrual period returns regularly, according to a cycle of roughly 4 weeks. The processes in the female organism by no means always pass without mishaps. Some women experience discomfort when menstruating, suffering from cramps, headache, and other symptoms.

The female menstrual cycle is one of the best examples for the complicatedinterrelationships between different hormones. The entire endocrine system is involved. Furthermore, other organ systems must also function correctly to ensure that the cycles proceed normally. Diseases of the thyroid gland, for example, cause menstrual irregularities or even a complete absence of menstruation. The activity of the ovaries, which determines menstrual bleeding, is not always stable. Stress, mental strain, even just a change of surroundings or jobs, extremely high or low weight, certain medications, and infections or other diseases are only some of the many factors that can disrupt a womans reproductive cycle. The strength and duration of menstruationa, but also the type of pain, provide clues about both healthy as well as disturbed activities of the female organs. Inflammatory diseases of the ovaries and uterus are also responsible for menstrual irregularities. The causes for these diseases are mostly infections that ascend from the vagina upward, and in addition, for the uterus, inflammations that descend from the fallopian tubes and ovaries.

Physio Guideline


• Feeling of pressure in the lower abdomen, labor-like pain, menstrual disorders.

• Often fever, occasionally with sudden attacks of shivering.

• After the cause has been determined, cupping can lead to fast results, also

in combination with measures from conventional Western medicine.

Suggested Therapy

Cupping can be applied with good results in all gynecological diseases listed


• Adnexitis, endometriosis:

– Treatment initially occurs in intervals of 7 days, ca. three treatments;

afterwards, in intervals of 14 days, approximately also

three treatments.

Reproductive Organs

 Dry cupping in the groin over Head’s zone for the uterus and adnexa.

Additional measures in consideration of the stage of the disease

and the situation of the patient.

• Amenorrhea, hypermenorrhea, menorrhagia, dysmenorrhea:

– In these conditions, continue treatment in intervals of 10 days for

3 months. Afterwards, treatment depends on the development of

the disease.

– If therapy is continued, keep treating in larger intervals of 3–4


Supplemental Therapy

• For inflammations, bedrest can be useful.

• Homeopathy. Homeopathic treatment of any of these diseases generally

achieves good results. In these cases, organotropic and functiotropic remedies

are indicated, but the therapist must, as so often, choose among a large

number of remedies.

• Physical therapy. Cold or warm compresses; sitz baths can complement

the treatment and accelerate recovery.

• Phytotherapy. Extracts that have a sedative and spasmolytic effect (lemon

balm, yarrow.

Alternating Therapy

• Neural therapy. Quaddle therapy with local anesthetics on top of the ventral

Head’s zones of the lower abdomen and on top of the sacrum.

• Autohemotherapy. Autohemotherapy is indicated.

• Baunscheidt therapy. For detoxification and promotion of autoimmune

resistance, it can be useful as alternating therapy.

Climacteric Disorders

Menopause, also called “climacteric period,” is the stage in a woman’s life

when ovulation and menstruation cease and hence the years of fertility end.

The biological effect of menopause is a process that extends over 5–10

years, during which the activity of the ovaries drops off and then stops altogether.

It is important to remember that a naturalmenopause, in contrastwith

a surgically induced one, is not a disease but a biological process that can be

divided into three stages: premenopause, menopause, and postmenopause.

Menopause can be accompanied by a multiplicity of symptoms that are

related to hormonal changes. It varies, however, from woman to woman.

Some women barely notice it; others suffer from frequent hot flashes that almost

incapacitate them, night sweats, mood swings, depression, irritability,

insomnia, poor circulation, cardiac disorders, and other symptoms that point

to metabolic disorders and can persist for several years.

Treatment in conventional Western medicine, which replaces the estrogen

lacking after menopause, is controversial. Furthermore, somewomen experience

side-effects in this hormone therapy, which manifest in swelling,

increased weight, nausea, vomiting, headache, heightened susceptibility to

vaginal fungal infections and bleeding, and swollen and tender breasts.

• Carry out two treatments per week, to a total of 15 cupping treatments.

• To stabilize results, follow up with one cupping treatment in intervals

of 3 weeks.

Afterwards, carry out one treatment per month if necessary.

Supplemental Therapy

• Homeopathy. The time of menopause affects women in every aspect of

their existence. Different symptoms appear in this transitional stage, manifesting

on the physical, emotional, and mental level. From a homeopathic

perspective, it is not the individual symptom that points to the correct

choice of remedies in these disorders, but the potential total of all symptoms

toms. Choice of individual remedies according to homeopathic principles,

as important supplemental therapy.

• Phytotherapy. For patients with depressed mood swings and nervous irritability,

extracts of hypericum, passiflora, or hops. The last of these has

a sedative and an estrogenic effect.

Alternating Therapy

• Neural therapy. Quaddle therapy with local anesthetics on top of the ventral

Head’s zones of the lower abdomen and on top of the sacrum.

• Canthardin plasters. Therapy in cases with imminent hypertonicity.

• Baunscheidt therapy. Paravertebral treatment in segment L5.

Autohemotherapy. Can be useful
