The Eastern Way of Approaching Fertility
To conceive and have a healthy pregnancy, you must have a free flow of Qi and blood throughout the body. An adequate supply of blood is required by a woman’s body to sustain a normal menstrual cycle, to successfully implant an embryo within the uterine lining, and to support a growing fetus and a healthy pregnancy. Through acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, we can raise your fertility potential by affecting the quality, quantity, balance, and flow of Qi and blood.
Chinese medicine can help increase fertility in women by:
- Establishing a regular menstrual cycle
- Increasing blood flow to the uterus to improve the chances of ovum implantation
- Reducing anxiety and stress that may significantly decrease fertility
- Increasing the libido
- Normalizing the hormone and endocrine systems that regulate ovulation
- Unblocking fallopian tubes
- Positively affecting the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis that plays a key role in fertility
- Increasing endometrial lining
- Increasing and regulating beneficial cervical fluid
- Strengthening the immune system
Chinese medicine can help increase fertility in men by:
- Improving sperm motility
- Improving semen volume
- Improving sperm morphology
- Decreasing stress
- Increasing the libido
