According to the theories of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), infertility is the result of an imbalance of the body’s energy flow called Qi (pronounced “chee”) and blood affecting the healthy functioning of one or more of the organ systems. When the body’s energy and blood flow are circulating freely throughout the body, every cell, tissue, and organ is properly nourished and can function well. Acupuncture and TCM can raise the fertility potential of women by improving the quality, quantity, and balance of the energy and blood flow.
The kidneys control the release of an ovum. The kidneys also control the body’s growth and development. Healthy kidneys are required to have a healthy body, mind, and pregnancy. If an imbalance exists within the kidneys, this can result in infertility. TCM and acupuncture can nourish and support overall kidney health.
Adequate blood supply is required by a woman’s body to sustain a normal menstrual cycle, a growing fetus, and a healthy pregnancy. Complications within the spleen can result in an inadequate supply and imbalance of blood.
In order to conceive and have a healthy pregnancy, it is essential to have a free flow of energy and blood throughout the body. The liver is in charge of facilitating this function. When it is out of balance, areas of the body will not receive adequate energy and blood flow. This imbalance can lead to depression, anxiety, stress, and increased possibility of infertility.
