The high level of urbanization and intensity of production processes has impact on all spheres of human life. Women work in industry, and during their climacteric period they often continue to do routine work. It is noteworthy that even the physiological manifestations of climacteric have certain effects on female psychological well being. The notion of illness, irrespective of the etiological factor, is related to a condition of dis-adaptation in the system of vegetative functioning of an organism and manifestation of vegeto-visceral dysfunctions at various organic and systemic levels. The state of adjustment and vegetative functioning of an organism is considered fundamental in both physiology and pathology.
As age-related changes arrive in women compensatory reactions weaken and reproductive functions die away. The ovaries gradually seize to produce sex hormones. Owing to deficit of estrogen’s vaginal and bladder mucosa loose elasticity, become thinner, drier, easy-to-hurt and more vulnerable to inflammatory processes. This often causes pains during intimacy, involuntary passing waters when laughing or coughing, and also itching and burning sensations, which make a woman’s life quality considerably worse. In many women during climacteric hormone restructuring leads to upsetting of an organism’s adjustment processes which is clinically manifest in such symptoms as hot flushes, excessive sweating, insomnia, tachycardia, headaches, dizziness,etc. The woman becomes irritable, ill-tempered, nervous, lachrymose, sexual desire diminishes. These depressive conditions realize their influence on the organism through the vegetative nervous system (VNS), the basic status of which determines the organism’s response level.
The problem of treatment of climacteric syndrome (CS) in women during pre-menopause is very topical because of high frequency of this pathology. Therefore, choosing optimal therapeutic methods that prevent the development of pathological climacteric in women has important clinical implications. Though with the somatic condition getting better following basic therapy some of these disorders become less intensive, the majority of symptoms related to asthenia and vegeto-vascular impairment persist for quite a long time, and the problem of nervous and mental disturbance cannot be solved by medication alone and requires to look for new, mainly non-medication methods of treatment. It is noteworthy that acupuncture is nowadays a universally recognized, scientifically-grounded method aimed at regulation of stress and adaptation responses in the diversity of their physiological and clinical manifestations. In other words, the system of active points, along with the nervous and hormone systems, is a regulatory system without using which neither prevention of disease nor its full-value treatment are possible. The present study was aimed at investigating of effectiveness of acupuncture in treatment of pathological climacteric.
SJA is one of the most perspective, safe, cost-efficient and effective acupuncture methods. The areas corresponding to ovaries, uterus, brain and spinal cord were stimulated, syndromal treatment was administered, too.
Analysis of semiological structure prior to treatment showed that peripheral vegetovascular disorders such as excessive sweating, hot flushes, numbness of limbs, dyspnea and signs of meteolability (sensitivity to changes of weather, temperature fluctuations of the air, magnet storms, changes of humidity) was observed in all patients. The syndrome of liability of the cardiovascular system in the form of cardiology’s, flushes, palpitations, tachycardia, changes of heart rate, fluctuations of blood pressure, proneness to dizziness, headaches, rapid fatigue and nausea observed in patients. The psycho-emotional syndrome manifest as anxiety, irritability, tearfulness, feelings of anger and fear, and also depressive conditions were also found. Urogenital disorders such as incontinence of urine, cystalgias, vaginal pruritus, dispareunie were found in patients too.
With impairment of functions of any organ of system their operation and frequency characteristics get disturbed too, so, by the biological feedback law, stimulation of certain points adjusts the affected organ to the primary level. SJA is not aimed at removing organic changes but at compensating for biological defects of the endocrine, immune and nervous systems, and also of adrenergetic imbalance. Decreasing the noradrenaline tonus up to premenopausal level, increasing the level of dopamine and activity of endogenous opioid peptides, SJA has a positive effect on all manifestations of climacteric syndrome. In its turn, correction of vasomotor complaints, that is, excessive excitability, irritability, feelings of anger and fear, insomnia, headaches, dispareunia contributes to higher spirits and improvement of a woman’s life quality which produces a kind of “domino-effect”.
