Acupuncture and Herbal Therapy
are ancient Chinese methods used for the treatment and prevention of
disease. These methods have been used for thousands of years and are as
effective as any other medical techniques used in the world today. Over the
past few decades, acupuncture has gained in popularity in the United States.
The benefits of acupuncture for infertility treatment can be found in early
Chinese medical literature.
These techniques not only assist in
regulating the menstrual cycle and invigorating the sperm, but they also serve
to enhance the function of the whole body. The “whole body" health
approach provides a key to unlock unlimited potential in healing. This is
especially helpful for patients over 40, as it stimulates overall health
including reproductive health.
Acupuncture can effectively treat issues
such as: PMS, amenorrhea, endometriosis, immune system
incongruities, and infertility related hormonal problems. In addition, the use
of herbs can tonify the Kidney energy (renal and adrenal function), and Kidney
essence (jing) for the benefit of increasing sperm count and motility.
Acupuncture treatment and herbs can be used in support of the highly technical
and expensive methods used in Western medicine.
In addition to the use of acupuncture, TCM
and herbal formulas, complete treatment programs also include a series of Qi
Kung (pronounced chee gung). These are healing energy exercises used to enhance
the flow of specific meridians. These exercises stimulate the flow of
intrinsic energy in the body which enhances health and benefits organ function.
