Happy New Year! January is the freshest month of the new born year. That’s why I thought it perfect to write about fertility and how important and effective acupuncture-Chinese medicine can be in this area.
There are four aspects to my work in fertility and sexual dysfunction. These are:
- Chi Gong
- Guided meditation (visualization)
- Herbal medicine
I have had great success in my more than 18 year career helping both females (and males) achieve the dream of being parents and/or improve sexual functioning. Even when all other methods of conventional fertility and sexual dysfunction treatments have failed, I still have had success helping mothers-to-be get pregnant and fathers-to-be improve their sperm quality and overall sexual vitality.
The body of research showing acupuncture-Chinese medicine’s effectiveness in infertility in general, and IVF increased effectiveness in particular, is significant. No longer do we have to wonder if acupuncture-Chinese medicine is going to help; but rather, how much it is going to help.
Cases of infertility where the person has a structural problem can be difficult but not impossible to help. The same goes when the person is diagnosed as infertile but there is no biomedical reason why. Actually, these tend to be the most frustrating for many women. Fortunately, there is the understanding of Chinese medicine and its principles of energy, Chi, blood and the organs as an interrelated-interconnected super highway. Perhaps Western medicine is sometimes at a loss to understand why the infertility. But often Chinese medicine can provide major insight on why, and prescribe a set of practices to become fertile, a mother, a father.
I have seen both these situations play out hundreds of times and been able to help solve it as many times as I have seen them. So I know that the first order of business is always hope and belief: Hope that there is a huge chance with acupuncture-Chinese medicine to become pregnant or improve ED and belief that the miracle of birth, itself being a reality of everyday life, gives us power to focus and to be hopeful that with the right approach this miracle is totally replicable (as we can see all around us.)
Acupuncture is essential to balance the energy, activate blood circulation, regulate the menstrual cycle or bring it on, and to focus and calm the mind. Acupuncture also helps the person get through Western fertility treatment with better outcomes and deal with the stress, anxiety and frustration often encountered even in the most successful cases.
Chi Gong is the meditative, energy-based exercises of the ancient Chinese. I have found these to be as powerful as anything in helping restore appropriate circulation and vitality to the mind and reproductive system. It can be particularly effective for ED as well.
The mind is very important in everything especially in creation, which is what fertility is. The abundance receptivity and positive vibration enhance fertility. Guided meditation/visualization is another powerful complement to your aim of getting pregnant or impregnating your partner. The attraction law is also enhanced with the appropriate relaxation, meditation and visualization practice.
In Taoist philosophy, everything comes from Nothingness, and Nothingness is a state that has a name. In mandarin it is called Wu Chi. Just like the architect, who needs to dream and visualize the idea of what she intends (intentionality) to draw and then build before it actually takes material shape on a board, a computer and finally on the ground itself as a structure. It is the same for creating children. I have found that through energy and meditation practices fertility is increased because the person doing the practice starts becoming more synchronistic with the energy of creation. The vibration becomes more “resonant” with the idea, rather than “dissonant”. Sort of like playing a very well-tuned piano.
In scientific terms, this is called the theory of Brainwave Entrainment and many think of this as the neuro-immune mechanism of inner or self-healing behind the so called Placebo effect. The person is more in tune with unseen energetic forces. And while these might not be explainable based on classical rationalism, they do exist. Just like the Gravity Force, that while no one can feel or see, keeps you and me from falling off the planet into outer space.
Last, but certainly not least, is the Chinese herbal medicine therapy. There are many fertility and sexual vitality enhancing formulas according to the different patterns of conditions and syndromes. I have successfully utilized many of these and have found them to be effective and safe. I am featuring one such formula this month: Don Gui Wan or Angelica Sinensis Compound. This formula is composed of four herbs, the principal one of which is Angelica Sinensis. This formula reestablishes healthy menstruation, activates and fortifies circulation to the uterus and increases fertility.
Here are the Top 5 Recommendations for improving fertility
If you have been having a hard time getting pregnant or getting your partner pregnant even with fertility treatments, below are five recommendations that may help you in this process
- Make sure you have been thoroughly worked up with blood tests that check for metal levels in your stream, particularly mercury.
- Make sure that you have a very strong nutritional, clean and organic food regime and do not drink more than 1 glass of red wine a day. If possible and other than red wine, avoid alcohol all together
- Begin an inner practice utilizing meditation/visualization technique and construct in your inner eye a movie, your movie on what it would look like (your whole environment with very specific detail) when you get pregnant and your baby is born.
- Learn the Chi Gong exercise “Holding the Ball” and practice it in the Horse Stance.
- Relax about the whole thing. Do not fall for the massive anxiety-stress provoking practice of blaming yourself, becoming totally impatient, worried, overwhelmed, etc. This practice activates Fight-or-Flight mechanisms that are counter-productive and only hinder your effort.
Apply 3-4 above so that you have something productive and helpful to do. Also, 3-4 help you achieve the peaceful-relaxation-awareness response.
