Women's health has been recognized by traditional Chinese doctors as paramount to the health of families and to society at large since at least 682 A.D. when the first medical texts dealing with this subject were written. This was due to women's role in bearing children and primary responsibility for keeping the family healthy. Therefore, Chinese Gynecology has alternately been referred to as "Nurturing Life". Because of this rich history and depth of experience, Chinese Medicine has much to offer in addressing gynecological disorders and other health concerns of women.
