Fertility Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine for Women’s Health
An increasing number of couples these days are experiencing difficulties with conception and fertility. This phenomenon has been variously attributed to things like environmental toxicity and the stress of a modern lifestyle, but a big contributor is the fact that people tend to have children later than they used to, and that fertility naturally decreases with age.
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a popular way of strengthening and regulating the reproductive system, and Dr Christopher Booth has helped many couples achieve their goals with his Orange fertility acupuncture clinical services.
Both gynaecology and obstetrics have been specialty fields of traditional Chinese medicine for over 2000 years, using both acupuncture and herbal medicine to provide effective and natural solutions to all kinds of fertility issues. These days, millennia of TCM results work in tandem with a contemporary medical understanding of the human body to great effect.
Orange Fertility Acupuncture for Women
Pregnancy acupuncture can improve your fertility in a number of ways. It assists women in regulating the menstrual cycle. A regular and trouble free cycle is usually the first step towards good fertility, and also gives good predictability for timing the most fertile point in the cycle. Acupuncture can be used to strengthen the endometrial lining, so when fertilisation has taken place, there is a suitable site for the embryo to implant. It will also assist in maintaining good blood supply to that lining in the early weeks of pregnancy. Importantly, it also assists in controlling the effects of stress and anxiety on your fertility.
Orange Fertility Acupuncture for Men
For men, fertility acupuncture and herbal medicine treatments can aid in improving sperm count and motility, while minimising the inherent risk of sperm abnormalities. It’s also very effective at reducing the impact of stress on the body, and minimising the effect this has on male fertility. Within a few months of treatment, you should be able to see positive changes in sperm test results.
Chinese Herbal Medicine for Fertility
Chinese herbal medicine also provides an effective treatment tool, used instead of or in addition to acupuncture, depending on one’s individual situation, but usually they are deployed together. It generally takes around 3 menstrual cycles to correct irregularities, but the chances of conception usually begin increasing almost immediately, and you can generally continue trying throughout the process. All treatments are gentle, safe and well matched to your individual situation, so there’s little risk to your health or the baby’s.
While Chinese medicine can be used as a standalone fertility aid, modern clinical trials have shown that it effectively increases pregnancy success rates when used in conjunction with IVF. For best results, it’s recommended that IVF follows two or three months of Chinese medicine fertility help.
TCM for Menopause and Women’s Health Concerns
In addition to being one of the world’s most effective pregnancy aids, TCM provides excellent coverage of other women’s health issues, particularly symptoms at menopause.
