Chinese Medicine & Fertility

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic health system founded in China thousands of years ago. It is renowned as a natural medicine given its long history in efficacy. Its evolution as a health system is mostly retained. Many people choose TCM as it has little side effects, is gentle and focuses or supporting the body. Rather than forcing.

How Chinese Medicine Supports Fertility

It treats both the interior and exterior of the person by encompassing diet, tui na (massage), acupuncture, gua sha, moxa, cupping, herbal medicine, qi exercise and much more. It is excellent for treating disorders that orthodox medicine cannot help, namely unexplained infertility. Since 200AD, herbs have been documented for infertility and miscarriage treatment. Evidence was found in China on ancient oracle bones.

In ancient China, it was super important to procreate. There was great emphasis on continuing the family line. Hence, doctors of Chinese Medicine specialising in fertility occurred decades ago. The study of fertility is also appears in ancient classics such as the Yi Jing, Huang di Nei Jing and Jin Gui Yao Lue.

In the clinic, I have seen why TCM can support infertility so well.

Women who have extreme PMS, pain during the period and irritability find that within one to three cycles that these symptoms have much improved. This is known as liver qi stagnation. Women with very light and scanty periods begin to have substantial and proper bleeding. This is known as blood deficiency. Women with cold hands and fingers start to get their circulation going again. Known as yang deficiency or interior cold. Chinese Medicine theory holds the health of their reproductive system lies within organ energy balance. As studies have shown that this can improve with treatment.

What Methods Improve Fertility?

According to the study of TCM, all the signs and symptoms we present with tell us that a particular organ energy is out of balance.

When we strengthen the body and treat the organ energy, the body can go back into balance and function at peak once again.

What About Chinese Herbs For Fertility?

The Chinese have been using herbs for decades to support fertility.

Often with Jing deficiency (which can cause infertility) there is a deficiency of blood or qi (energy) that is creating this. For example, one’s fertility declines with age. As we get older, we have less qi and blood. Taking herbs can replenish the qi and blood lost over time. They can nourish your body to do this job well once again.

Often people who seek TCM for fertility find that their skin glows after months of treatment, their hair is shiny, and they feel well and better than they have in a long time. Many people find acupuncture relaxing, hence why they love getting it.

If you have been trying for some time or would like to prepare to be healthy and well, I highly recommend Traditional Chinese Medicine.
