Rate this Article:
Many couples are looking for ways to become pregnant fast. Some may have been struggling to become pregnant and are just about ready to give up on the thought of every having kids of their own. However, before giving up completely it is a good idea to give Chinese medicine a try.
There are many aspects to Chinese medicine and many may be skeptical of their success. However, there has been a lot of positive feedback regarding their treatments and even Western doctors admit that they can help some couples conceive when no other method has worked in the past. Below is more information about the different methods that can help you conceive.
Acupuncture has been practiced since ancient times. It is the method where tiny needles are inserted into the skin in certain places all across the body. These locations are referred to as acupuncture points. Chinese medicine considers them to be pathways of the body.
Some experts believe that acupuncture helps improve the blood flow that is heading to the uterus and other reproductive organs of the woman’s body. Stress is a leading cause of fertility issues in both men and women. Acupuncture is a very relaxing procedure and is similar to massage.
It can help calm the body and will help it function more normally. Much of the body’s stress can be removed through acupuncture and this may help make it easier to conceive.
Beta endorphins are affected in women when they receive acupuncture treatments. This hormone may control some of the levels of stress that are in the body, which in turn will help the woman feel more relaxed and free from stress.
Men can also benefit from acupuncture when they are struggling with fertility problems. It has been shown to improve motility and quality of sperm in a study that was conducted of infertile men. These men received acupuncture twice each week for a series of a little more than a month. There were great improvements noted in these men versus that of the control group.
2. Yin and Yang
Another important portion of Chinese Medicine is the Yin and Yang principle. It is believed that when these areas are not in balance, couples can suffer from problems with fertility. If you are looking to regain some balance to your Yin and Yang, there are certain things that you must do.
For a Yin deficiency, you should avoid spicy food and eat a combination of the following foods: mussel, chicken, fish, kidney, bone marrow, cereal grasses, milk, beef, wheat, black soybeans, mulberries, strawberries and walnuts among many others.
Those suffering from a Yang deficiency should focus on adding the following foods to their diet: onion, garlic, cooked beans with ginger, oats, sweet brown rice, anchovy, trout, chicken, beef and lamb among several others.
There are also a number of other deficiencies that may occur. Below are the foods that you should add for the corresponding deficiencies according to Chinese medicine:
Qi deficiency– Eat smaller portions and add the following foods: oats, beef, chicken, shrimp, milk, watercress and winter cress.
Blood deficiency – Stay hydrated and add the following foods: sprouts, seaweed, gelatin, oysters, beef, chicken, and lamb.
Damp – NO sweets, greasy or raw foods and eat small portions. Add the following foods: lettuce, celery, turnip, asparagus, pumpkin and papaya.
3. Other Herbs that May Help
You should talk to a licensed practitioner before taking any additional herbs or supplements, but these Chinese Medicine herbs have all been shown to help with fertility problems.
- Blood stasis – nutmeg, chives, vinegar, and sweet rice.
- Qi stagnation – spearmint, rosemary, garlic, onions, ginger root, hot peppers, dill, horseradish, basil and nutmeg.
- Heat – banana, pear, watermelon, tomato, radish, lettuce, celery, broccoli, sweet corn, soy milk, tofu, millet, barley, kudzu and crab.
The art of Chinese medicine has been used for centuries and many couples still rely on it to become pregnant. While there is no scientific proof that any of these methods work, many swear by them.
Some studies have shown that they offer positive results in couples that have been struggling to get pregnant for some time and there have even been instances where couples have tried Chinese medicine as a last resort and have found themselves becoming pregnant quickly. Whether this was just due to a relaxed state of mind or the Chinese medicine, it is difficult to say.
