Acupuncture For Fertility

Acupuncture can be very effective to improve fertility.  Acupuncture restores the normal function of the whole body.  Your body knows what health is, you just have to help it out.

Infertility can be caused by many things.  The most common causes of infertility in Chinese medicine are kidney weakness, liver energy stagnation and stagnation in the pelvis area.  Especially after the age of 30, your circulation can be impaired.  The blood flow to your ovaries and uterus can not be optimal.

We do general body points that improve energy levels and hormone balance.  We also have acupuncture points that can improve circulation to the uterus and ovaries.  There are many case studies in Chinese medicine books about treating imbalances in the fallopian tubes and uterus.  A point that is often used for infertility is “Zi gong”.  That is the “uterus” point.  It affects the functioning of the ovaries and uterus.

The Uterus point is used on both sides.

There are many Chinese herbs that improve fertility also.  In addition to taking herbs for whatever you are diagnosed with, you can also take he shou wu.  Another name for he shou wu is “Fo ti“.  This is a master herb for infertility in both men and women.  It is helpful for men to improve sperm count and sperm quality.

Fo ti also helps to grow healthier and more hair.  I even use this for my patients over 40 who want to replace hair they have lost with aging.  Within about a month you can see new hairs sprouting at your hairline on your forehead.  It is often used long term to nourish the kidneys.  It is a longevity tonic in Chinese medicine.
