List of Complementary & Alternative Approaches

Updated: Nov 30, 2021

DISCLAIMER

* It is important to note that complementary and alternative healthcare, treats the symptoms rather than the underlying cause of Endometriosis. When it is used hand in hand with allopathic medicine, it could provide better pain management.

* The recommendations we received are from the members of Singapore Endometriosis Support Group (Facebook Page) & fellow warriors all over Singapore who contacted us, which are then carefully looked into. Those who made it to this list, have gotten their background checked to ensure no dubious intent. However, it should not be taken as an assurance to achieving a permanent fix on Endometriosis, Adenomyosis, and anything related to it.

* There are no two bodies alike so what works for one doesn’t necessarily work for the other. User discretion is advised so please make a conscious decision.

* Please seek professional advice before attempting any information obtained online.


 

We received a constant flow of posts/direct messages seeking recommendations on alternative approaches, so a list is created to cater to these needs.


None in this list is eligible for subsidy. However, if you are looking for subsidy approved acupuncture and if you already fall in this category for your conventional treatment for Endometriosis, you may ask your Ob-Gyn specialist for a referral within the same hospital:


"Acupuncture treatment is provided to hospital patients mainly as a way to manage pain. Four public hospitals offer the service today – Singapore General Hospital (SGH), National University Hospital (NUH), Tan Tock Seng Hospital, and Khoo Teck Puat Hospital. A referral from a doctor is needed, and acupuncture treatment is generally open to both outpatients and those warded in the hospital." More Doctors and Dentists Sharpen Up on Acupuncture
