What does Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment include?

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) includes acupuncture, Chinese herbs, diet, exercise, and lifestyle approach. Dr. Gu places great emphasis on physical and mental balance and individualised care.

 

How does acupuncture and  herbal medicine work?

Chinese medicine is a system of medicine developed in China that has a different history and approach than Western medicine. Rather than treating disease, Chinese medicine practitioner treats patterns of disharmony (or symptom clusters) in a patient. 

Fertility acupuncture works in three ways from Chinese Medicine perspective:

  • It stimulates intrinsic energy flow through the body, frees flow of energy and remove stagnations.
  • Increases blood flow in the pelvic region,paticularly reproductive organs
  • Improves vital conception organs function, replenishes  essence of conception energy.
  • Balances physical and mental health.

The procedure involves:

An initial phase to regulate the menstrual cycle by clearing congestion in the pelvic cavity and nourishing the deeper vitality. This also involves managing any underlying conditions such as hormone imbalance, egg quality,PCOS, endometriosis and fibroids.

Additional benefits include:

  • Regular periods with a bright red blood flow without clots, and minimal or no menstrual cramping and breast tenderness
  • Better emotional balance,reduce stress.
  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Better circulation resulting in warmer hands and feet
  • A healthy libido
  • Increased energy

The second phase begins once conception occurs. This part of the treatment support a full-term pregnancy, manage symptoms related to pregnancy.

 

The male part of the equation

Sperm count and quality has been declining over the last 50 years, impacting the chances of getting pregnant and carrying to full term. This means that it is important to focus on the man as much as the woman. DR. Gu  places great emphasis on male’s health too.

Natural fertility stems from healthy sperm, healthy eggs, and a healthy uterus in which to implant and develop.

A holistic approach for greater balance

Dr. Gu understands the relationship between stressful or negative emotions and infertility. He believes that these play a major role in hormonal imbalances and problems associated with female reproduction.
