The difference between Western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine, reproductive medicine, your approach to the treatment of infertility. Western reproductive medicine can do the following: the promotion of follicular development with some drugs, stimulates ovulation with other drugs that cause intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization. Western reproductive surgeons can perform surgery often need a fertile environment where polyps, fibroids, abnormal uterine and cervical abnormalities are present to create. Without such interventions many infertile women do not have children. Traditional Chinese medicine can often regulate systemic dysfunction naturally. This means that TCM can help the patient to help PCOS ovulate without Clomid or perhaps with a minor amount of Clomid. In morbidly obese patients with polycystic ovary syndrome, weight loss is of paramount importance in improving the ability to think, because androgens excessive accumulation of fat and converts androgens into estrogens, creating a hormonal imbalance that is likely to make a vague idea. Can acupuncture and herbal medicine along with exercise and lifestyle changes lead to weight loss and health benefits potentially associated. In patients with endometriosis, acupuncture and herbal medicine is not possible to eradicate endometriosis, but the environment with this inflammatory disease is reduced. An interesting example of a patient with endometriosis stage 1 does not have any distortion of the pelvis, but can not get pregnant.
Why not? The sperm of her husband is well and not endometriosis as contributing to the condition of infertility. Other autoimmune diseases were excluded as possible factors. Infertility of an intrauterine inflammatory environment that destroys embryos and causes the lining of the uterus inhospitable to an embryo has been created to implement, is looking for. Acupuncture and herbal medicine can often regulate this environment by reducing the inflammatory process. The male factor. Many men have low sperm counts, due to less vericocele. Surgeons vericoceles not work, because the benefits outweigh the risk. The cause of a vericocele pooling and stagnant and overheating of the blood in the pampiniform plexus. The pampiniform plexus refers to the veins of the testicles. The heat kills sperm caused by the pooling and stagnation of blood. Acupuncture and herbs can be difficult to move the qi (energy, metabolism, circulation) and blood in the testicles. As a result, the frozen blood less, the blood flow is more functional and the heat is reduced, resulting in sperm. Even the face of one vericocele large, the surgical results have happened 50% of the time. This means that even with surgery there is a probability of 50% that the census will remain low. One reason for this is that the stagnation of the blood long-term heat in the testes and causes tissue necrosis (death) and sperm are produced correctly.
The determination of success can only be done after the operation. The recovery time after surgery is six months. The reason for this is the case is due to inflammation, which is caused through the operation of reducing lasts a long time. The use of acupuncture and phytotherapy, after a recovery period is vericocelectomy about two months, bringing the total number of reduced recovery time of four months instead of six. Men with sperm abnormalities should because hot baths, saunas or cycling for a long time, since all these activities failed testicular temperature increases ease. What about the patient who wants to do IVF with own eggs, but FSH is 20 and the doctor decides that the donor is the only option? The physician, in essence, correct. He or she believes the patient as someone who either did not respond to gonadotropin stimulation, and then produce either no eggs or produce too little to the continuous cycle of IVF be justified. Thus, the reproductive endocrinologist, the possibility of egg donation and complete integrity of the patient’s best interest in mind. But here is what I’ve seen in more than one occasion, I want to treat the patient with acupuncture and herbal medicine and their numbers are regulated. Not necessarily a level of “perfect”, but on a level with reproductive endocrinologists are promoting a “second look”. Then cycles of IVF were completed with great success for many results and many failures, too. But I chose the very importance of failures. These successes would never have happened if the acupuncture and herbs in the patient, who said that the egg donor was the only option was to have been used. In other words, the inclusion of the TCM has only a growth potential.
Accounts error to implement a significant amount of infertility. Almost all patients reported that the coating is “beautiful” according to your reproductive endocrinologist. Scientific truth is that the morphology of the coating is not similar to the intra-dome vascularization test. This means that, although the coating may be thicker, it means that there was the blood flow sufficient to reach the coating. That is why at times also occur in the absence of observable or diagnosable disease, infertility. Acupuncture and herbal remedies have been shown to increase blood flow endometrial and increase the potential for the plant. The patient’s idiopathic. Idiopathy means “unknown cause”. What does “no known cause” is that the limited resources available diagnostic Western doctors today are only able to diagnose what will happen, no one can. In other words, there are many causes of infertility is not broken yet been discovered, which to this day no sources. Over time this will change. This is in no way intended as derogatory comments against Western reproductive medicine. In vitro fertilization has led millions of children around the world and has many happy families. These successes would not be possible before the ‘population sterile “for the arrival of this incredible technological innovation. Traditional Chinese medicine, according to their method of diagnosis is not, as part of their medical vocabulary with a word that is similar to the “idiopathic”. In other words, all cases of infertility are diagnosed and treated. There are no secrets or impossible cases. All can be analyzed, diagnosed and treated differently.
TCM can often establish a treatment protocol in Western medicine has nothing to offer except the donor. Specific formulas used TCM herbal formula for a particular patient for a particular disease, taking into account the whole patient and their condition. The whole person is treated, not just their disease. What it really means to be called the “whole person”? This means that if the patient has a bad marriage, have a low libido, chronic headaches, arthritis, depression, anxiety, frustration, a history of surgery, a history of psychological trauma and emotional, a job he hates, a dying mother, low self-esteem, a smoker, a drinker, a high stress, etc, etc, these things can contribute to infertility. How? Because of the spirit, mind and body are intimately connected. Still not convinced? Ok, why then, if you’re so stressed out, you get a headache or stomachache. Why is it so, if you are very depressed you do not have energy? Why is that when you pray you feel more capable? Why is it so when you look better, feel better and feel better when you have more energy and have more energy when they are sick and less likely if you are sick often chronically depressed? Because of the spirit, mind and body are intimately connected. Therefore, TCM doctors to treat the whole person, only the treatment of disease is like treating a cancer patient with analgesics to relieve pain. Therefore, the best in the treatment of reproductive disorders (and all the conditions) is to integrate both methods of medical experience. The application helps the MTC Western reproductive medical protocol in a short period of time to succeed. Or TCM can be the difference between success and failure in the Western medical world to be, remember, in vitro fertilization has a success rate of 30%, which means that, in contrast, has a failure rate of 70%.
Herbs. Herbal medicine if prescribed by a medical specialist herbalist is not only safe, but safer than Western medicine. Herbs can “interfere” with Western medicine in a cycle of IVF? No, I give to patients, while the herbs that were subject to Western medicine for 13 years. Everything that happens now is that the production of children. Can the Western system of acupuncture or herbal medicine threatened? I leave for you to answer. Here is a medical test. If you had a choice, something that could increase the chances of getting pregnant would be to do:
According to Pray
6 Change your diet
7 Stress Relief
You’re right, this will help. But they can identify the two things above, have a history of three thousand years with success in treating infertility? There are only two in the list. I think it is incredible that all infertile couples do not include acupuncture and herbal medicine as part of their protocol design. Some say “do not believe in him.” How can you not believe in something that is scientifically proven to be effective in a variety of Western scientific studies? It has, to my knowledge, very few studies on herbal medicines and the results of fertility, but there have been many studies of acupuncture.
I am a strong supporter and advocate of Western reproductive medicine. But TCM is used to treat infertility successfully completed more than 2930 years of western medicine. And I want equality. Not for my ego or for the validation of medical practice, but so proud to allow equality of patient care, better care than they currently have, the more successful, which should, where most of the families a little ‘ , but not. Based on the information I have provided here, is my conclusion that the use of traditional Chinese medicine as part of a protocol of medically assisted procreation is very short sighted way.
