The application of acupuncture and its benefits have been well recognized by the international. More and more people know the effectiveness of acupuncture. Clinical studies showed that acupuncture treatments for child-bearing age women without organic disease can increase the fertility rate up to 80% or above, and for women who do IVF successful rate can be increased by 40% -50%.*
In my clinic, it is often to find some common causes of infertility that they are listed in the following:
1. Kidney (Meridian) deficiency: In Chinese medicine, the kidney is the essence to control our growth and birth. It brings offspring for human generations. It is also one of the most important organs in our body. Patients who have kidney deficiency less likely to affect the uterus of warmth, that is, we often hear uterus cold infertility, but also affects the healthy development of the follicle, many women can occur hands and feet cold, low back and knee soreness.
2. Qi of liver: The liver is the main organ of blood storage. Emotion impact can affect physiological function of the liver. Some infertile women usually accompanied by emotion, stress, and depression. The Qi of liver flowing function disorders also affect the pregnancy.
3, Spleen (meridian) weakness: The spleen is our body’s largest immune organ, and also produces blood and nutrition. If this organ works abnormally, the patient may occur fatigue, weigh gain, immune dysfunction, and these patients may have other gynecological diseases, such as cervical erosion, face sallow, menstruation.
The above are not covered all the causes of infertility. Every patient is different, so all the treatments are depended on the 4 TCM diagnosis. So that’s why I always need a face to face meeting in order to know the reasons of the health issue from individual.
