How Can Acupuncture Help With Infertility?
Infertility refers to the biological inability of an individual to contribute to conception after having regular sexual intercourse for 12 consecutive months. It also refers to a female who cannot carry a pregnancy to full term. There are several contributing factors to why this condition (infertility) exist among male and female patients.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) describes infertility as a disruption in the smooth flow of Qi (body energy) throughout the meridians (energetic pathways) preventing the ovaries and uterus to work in harmony to conceive. By asking specific questions, palpating the abdomen and feeling the pulse it is possible to diagnose what is causing the infertility. By inserting very fine needles in specific locations it is possible to strengthen the bodies deficiencies, move any blockages and subdue any excess, restoring the body to its natural balance of mind, body and spirit causing a feeling of well being. This restoration will promote fertility.
