    Infertility is a widespread concern and it can be tremendously difficult for the couple who is dealing with it. It has probably been your wish to see those 2 pink lines on the pregnancy test kit for many months or years however when your menses start it’s natural for you to get disheartened. A young couple is typically more resilient and fertile but as they age there is a natural decline in the quality of cells. The quality of the cell also deteriorates when we are exposed to diseases, environmental toxins, stress, and poor dietary and lifestyle choices.

    There are several Western medical techniques and Eastern medical approaches available that can help a couple to conceive faster however, studies have shown that Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the oldest, proven and widely used approaches to boost fertility today. TCM formulas include acupuncture, therapies, and medicines that successfully work on anything that causes disturbance in one’s ecosystem be it mind, body or soul.

    An experienced TCM physician will consider all the factors like hormonal imbalance, lack of physical activity, and physical issues in the reproductive system of a male or female. Each element is put together so that they can seamlessly work and increase your chances of conceiving. Where western medicines mainly focus on the treatment of the disease, on the contrary TCM focuses on your entire well-being. A lot of people across the globe have been treated with TCM and there is no disappointment for them.

    Primary Causes of Infertility

    • Irregular diet

    • Stress

    • Lifestyle habits

    • Effects from our environment

    TCM Practices To Cure Infertility

    • Acupuncture

    It involves the insertion of small hair-thin-like needles through your skin at some specific points of your body. It will work on imbalanced energy and will boost fertility. It has positive influences on your body and it imparts calming effect on the nervous system. Along with enhanced fertility, it also increases uterine blood circulation, improves the chances of the uterine lining so that the egg can easily fertilize, and reduces the chance of ectopic pregnancy. Men’s fertility also improves from acupuncture because it helps in improving the quality and quantity of semen, it increases semen mobility and helps in overcoming impotency. It also helps in easing different types of pain like neck pain, low-back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and knee pain.

    • Tui Na (pronounced as twee-Nar)

    It encompasses various massage techniques, stretching, acupressure, and joint mobilization. The technique is somewhat similar to acupuncture but in this technique, there is no usage of needles. Mild pressure with hands and fingers is put on the energy channels of the joint and muscles so that it can enhance the flow of blood in the various parts of the body. It increases blood circulation, relieves pain, and soothes stress if any.

    • Cupping

    It is a basic healing method in which a vacuum is produced by placing a cup-shaped glass on the skin. There is an increase in blood circulation when the cup produces suction on the skin. The cups are put on certain points for approximately 5-15 minutes to release the tight and painful muscles. According to the experts, the energy pathways that are present in the human body are known as “Meridians” and the life force is known as “Qi”. Qi freely flows through these meridians and nourishes every cell, tissue, and organ of the body. Cupping therapy helps in providing free energy flow of the Qi. Cupping helps in removing blockages and inflammation of the fallopian tubes. It corrects hormonal imbalances that cause ovarian cysts. It also helps to boost fertility in men by enhancing the quality and quantity of sperm, resolving prostate problems, and curing inflammation of scrotum veins.

    Benefits of TCM

    • It supports and complements Western fertility treatments

    • Treatments are tailored to you

    • A non-invasive and natural approach

    • Restoration of holistic health

    Along with these different approaches to boost fertility, you must consume a nutritionally balanced diet, invest ample time in exercising, and live a healthy lifestyle by saying goodbye to alcohol, smoking, stress, and unhealthy junk food.
