Overcoming Chronic Miscarriages with Oriental Medicine

If you find conceiving not to be the challenge, but maintaining a pregnancy is, Oriental Medical treatments may offer the support you need.

Acupuncture and Herbal Solutions

Acupuncture points and herbal formulas have been instrumental in helping many of my patients achieve full-term pregnancies following multiple miscarriages. While many come to me after unsuccessful IVF treatments, others seek help for miscarriage prevention based on positive outcomes from previous Oriental Medicine treatments for different health issues.

The Role of Oriental Medicine in Pregnancy

During initial consultations or follow-up treatments, Oriental Medicine often uncovers underlying weaknesses in the body that may hinder pregnancy sustainability. These weaknesses can be addressed through targeted treatments, which may include improving nutrition to strengthen the pelvic area, enhancing circulation to reduce stress impact, and boosting energy levels to support fetal development.

The Impact of Miscarriages

Miscarriages, for any reason, can profoundly affect a woman, especially when they become recurrent. The emotional toll of chronic miscarriages includes stress and fear, which can negatively influence future pregnancy attempts. Oriental Medicine aims to strengthen the body’s Qi, ensuring the systems responsible for maintaining pregnancy are robust and the mind is calm.

Herbal Formulas for Pregnancy Support

Chinese Herbal Medicine offers formulas known to “calm a restless fetus,” a traditional way of describing the prevention of miscarriage. These formulas have been safely used for centuries in China and beyond, prescribed by certified herbal practitioners. Some women choose to incorporate these formulas during breaks from Western medical treatments.

Hope for the Future

While no treatment can guarantee a live birth, Oriental Medicine provides strategies to support women through their pregnancy journey. Our approach is holistic, aiming not just to sustain a pregnancy, but to improve overall health and well-being.
