Acupuncture for Miscarriages
Miscarriage is the result of many factors involved in the complex orchestration of pregnancy. These include: genetic factors, environmental factors, endocrine factors, circulatory factors, and immunologic factors.
Most of these factors are a result of subtle and subclinical imbalance – undetectable with blood tests and vaginal ultrasound. However, such imbalances are discoverable with the comprehensive knowledge, experience and research of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in Reproductive Science – of which the principal tools of correction are acupuncture and traditional Chinese herbs.
Most patients that come to see Dr. Peter Gu for acupuncture and Chinese herbal treatments had previously 1 to 5 miscarriages, often miscarrying in their 5th to 12th week of their pregnancies.
From the principles Chinese Medicine, our body must be in an “optimized” state of balance before one can conceive. To maintain a pregnancy, one must maintain the same balance. Dr. Peter Gu from Chinese Medicine points of view, believes three main factors: Conception essence or energy deficiency; Qi and Blood deficiency; Over heat.
Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine can tonify, build up and balance the body, to minimize the risk of miscarriages and help sustain pregnancy.
