Chinese Medicine Treatment Of Infertility
Infertility treatment has always been a difficult problem in the medical field.
The causes of infertility are very complex and are often a comprehensive reflection of various diseases of the reproductive system. In recent years, due to the fast pace of modern life, high pressure, late marriage and late childbearing, artificial abortion, unsafe sex life, environmental pollution and other factors, the incidence of infertility has increased, and the number of patients of different ages who come to see a doctor is also increasing. more and more. For a long time, according to the guiding ideology of "the way of seeking children, first regulate menstruation", the treatment focuses on menstruation regulation. It has a relatively complete theoretical system and long-term clinical practice, and has successfully helped many couples who are troubled by this problem to obtain children. Looking at their happy and excited tears, I can't help but want to help more couples who are still troubled by this problem.
What is infertility?
According to the definition of the World Health Organization, couples living together for more than one year, having normal sexual life, and becoming pregnant without contraception, are called infertility. According to our many years of clinical experience, conception is actually a complex physiological process. A normal egg is discharged from the ovary. The semen contains a mirror of normal activities. The egg and sperm can meet in the fallopian tube and combine to become a pregnant egg and transport it into the uterus The cavity, the endometrium, is suitable for the implantation of the fertilized egg. As long as one of these conditions is abnormal, it may hinder conception and lead to infertility. Menstrual disorders are more common in infertile women, manifested as early or delayed menstruation, excessive or less menstrual flow, prolonged or amenorrhea, abnormal leukorrhea or abdominal pain, etc., and many patients usually have symptoms of low back pain.
In terms of treatment, we must prescribe the right medicine and start from the root of the problem. Many infertile patients we took over came to our hospital for treatment after trying different methods many times. After our comprehensive examination, we found that in fact, in addition to medical problems, the fatal injuries were actually orthopedic diseases. We used Lee's unique technique of bone-setting and chiropractic, combined with acupuncture and oral medication, to help several couples to have a baby.
Traditional Chinese medicine has been used to treat infertility since ancient times. In TCM, infertility is called "total infertility", "no child", "broken thread" and so on. In the Xia, Shang and Zhou Dynasties (225-256 BC), there is a saying in the "Shan Hai Jing": "The suitable descendants of the deer and Shu Pei", "the round leaves and white attachments, the red flowers and the black lilies, in fact, like oranges, the suitable descendants of food are ”, which means that there were drugs for infertility at that time. "Sheng Ji Zonglu" said: "The reason why women have no children is due to insufficient Chong and Ren, and kidney qi deficiency and cold." It clarifies the pathogenesis of infertility. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that infertility is mainly caused by insufficient kidney qi and liver stagnation, resulting in the imbalance of qi and blood. The treatment of infertility in our hospital mainly pays attention to internal adjustment and external treatment, starting from righting and strengthening the foundation. The hospital uses the Lee's manipulation of chiropractic to regulate the endocrine system and reproductive function, etc., and conduct all-round adjustments, prescribe the right medicine, fill the marrow, thereby regulating the function of the gonadal axis and restoring the normal endocrine system.
Below, we will analyze the infertility treatment and analysis of traditional Chinese medicine for women and men:
Treatment of female infertility:
Traditional Chinese medicine believes that infertility in women is rooted in kidney deficiency, or due to physical deficiency and insufficient endowment; or careless sexual intercourse, which damages the kidney essence; or prolonged illness and prolific birth damage the kidney.
The spleen is the foundation of the acquired nature, the source of the biochemistry of essence and blood, and a deficiency of the spleen causes infertility due to the lack of biochemical sources. Women take the liver as the innate foundation. The blood of the liver is mainly responsible for dredging and venting. The temperament of liver stagnation can also make women infertile.
In terms of treatment, the five viscera should be calmed, the blood should be ventilated, and the seeds of menstruation should be adjusted.
According to TCM theory, there are three major factors that lead to female infertility:
One: Traditional Chinese medicine believes that women are yin, the uterus is prone to cold, and the yin and cold are abundant in the interior. In addition, the kidney qi is weak, the kidney essence is insufficient, and the Chong and Ren deficiency are deficient, and the menstrual disorder will be indefinite.
Two: Liver stagnation and spleen dampness: If the emotions are not smooth, the liver qi is stagnant, and the spleen is deficient in internal dampness, the blood vessels will be blocked, the qi and blood will not be harmonious, the phlegm and dampness will remain stagnant, and the menstrual disorders will lead to infertility.
Three: blood stasis and qi stagnation: women are blood-based, and qi is the smooth, blood and qi are interdependent and affect each other. Disharmony between qi and blood, stagnation of qi and blood stasis, all kinds of diseases are born, and infertility is caused by this.
Most women who are unable to conceive also suffer from scoliosis, which seriously affects the overall circulation of the body, normal endocrine, blood supply to internal organs, and the above symptoms, which ultimately lead to inability to conceive.
Male infertility treatment:
Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the kidney stores essence and is responsible for development and reproduction. If the kidney essence is abundant, the human body will grow and develop robustly, and the sexual and reproductive functions will be normal. If the liver controls the blood, and the liver blood nourishes and nourishes, the reproductive organs will be nourished, and the intercourse after marriage will last for a long time. The spleen governs the transport and transformation, the grains of water and grains can be dispersed, and the sperm chamber can replenish the yang, so that the semen can be abundant. Any dysfunction of the kidneys, liver, spleen, heart and other organs can affect reproductive function, resulting in symptoms such as less sperm, weak sperm, cold sperm, thin sperm, hot sperm, thick sperm, impotence, premature diarrhea, no ejaculation, and even male infertility. Fertility.
Traditional Chinese medicine theory believes that "long-term illness must have stasis", and congestion is often caused by poor blood flow on the basis of previous chronic inflammation and tissue damage, resulting in local tissue dystrophy. Therefore, congestion is another important pathological mechanism of male infertility.
Acupuncture helps fertilized eggs implant: In 2002, German researchers found that acupuncture significantly improved their chances of conceiving in a 2002 study of 160 women undergoing IVF treatment. Forty-two percent of women who received acupuncture became pregnant, compared with 26 percent of women who did not receive acupuncture. Since then, there has been more research proving that acupuncture can benefit women. Another study noted that women who received IVF or intracytoplasmic injection and received acupuncture during the second half of their menstrual cycle had higher rates of both conception and continued pregnancy. A Danish study showed that conception rates were maximized if acupuncture was administered the day the embryo was implanted in the uterus. This is further evidence that acupuncture may help increase blood flow to the uterus and relax muscle tissue, thereby increasing the chances of a successful embryo implantation.
Acupuncture improves sperm count and motility: Acupuncture also helps with male infertility. Regular acupuncture treatment has been shown to increase sperm count and improve sperm motility in men with fertility problems.
