Traditional Oriental Medicine& Reproductive Health
Even after over 3,000 years of testimonials, Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine may still sound a bit weird. Nonetheless, its harshest critics confess that if acupuncture were dangerous somebody would have noticed by now.
Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is well recognizes for the management of pain but few know that it has been widely used in a large variety of male/female reproductive conditions. The earliest records of Chinese medical writings on the subject date back three thousand years, some found inscribed on tortoise shells and bones. Acupuncture for reproductive difficulties is one of the greatest secrets of this amazing, ancient medicine. The first book on gynecology is The Complete Book of Effective Prescriptions for Diseases of Women. It was published in 1237 A.D. Today in China, Oriental Medicine is used to treat reproductive problems in both men and women. Positive clinical trials are regularly reported in over 50 Chinese medical journals. Quite frankly, a good deal of “research” was done for thousands of years because fertility was an important objective in Asia as well as other countries. I must note that “fertility” implies anything related to the process of conception. It does not matter what your age is or whether you are male or female… If you experience one or more of the following ailments, you owe it to yourself to see an Acupuncturist! More than likely, your problem will be treated effectively with Acupuncture and herbs.
- Painful Periods
- Hormonal imbalances
- Bladder infections
- Menopause –premature or its symptoms.
- Blocked tubes
- Uterine fibroids
- Late or early periods
- Prostrate problems
- Sperm irregularities
- Erectile dysfunction
- Lack of libido
- Dysfunctional uterine bleeding
- Anovulation (no release of eggs)
- Menstrual clotting
- “Menstrual” headache
Simply put~ Acupuncture affects the central nervous system to regulate the pituitary and the hormonal system. Acupuncture also promotes circulation of blood and energy throughout your body, especially to the reproductive organs (ovaries, uterus, testicles), which is extremely important to help you achieve optimum reproductive balance.
*While the above signs and symptoms in and of themselves will not necessarily be the primary cause of your inability to conceive, they do reveal internal blockages of energy and blood, which may contribute to infertility.
*Another advantage of the Oriental approach is that other health benefits can accrue. This is because treatment addresses imbalances that can affect overall health.
