Married couples who've been together for three to five years now wonder what might be wrong with them because even without any form of protection they still could not conceive the child they so desire. Thus they undergo check-up with the physicians and they are then informed that they have infertility issues, same as a number of individuals.

The information then sends the pair to various clinics looking for a cure and get rid for good the not-so rare medical condition. Just when they thought they've done it all, they're introduced to the world of acupuncture and fertility. Well, at least that's the goal: for the couple to be as fertile as possible so they could bear children.

Acupuncture is that specific type of treatment that involves the insertion of very thin needles in certain body parts which are considered as acupuncture points. These points subsequently represent the numerous organs of the human body that when needled react in a fashion that changes the way in which the organ is functioning.

It comes as no wonder then that acupuncture and fertility go together. Infertility happens for so many reasons but the most typical reason behind infertility is when there is under working of a person's thyroid glands called hypothyroidism or over working of the same glands that is also termed as hyperthyroidism. So if the glands are acupunctured for correcting the said causes, infertility is then reversed as well. It now becomes easier to conceive.

Now that one is aware that acupuncture and fertility go beautifully together without the dangerous side effects, as acupuncture is a natural type of medical intervention, it's high time that one is properly ushered into loving the wonderful science and art that is acupuncture.

Acupuncture treatment methods are kind of like undergoing physical therapy sessions and it is said that it is most reliable when it happens before and after traditional medical intercessions for example in vitro fertilization or insemination. Patients who want to experience both acupuncture and artificial conception methods are encouraged to undergo acupuncture at most four months and at least three months prior to the medical intervention of choice. Then, once the latter is completed, patients are required to go under another acupuncture session to strengthen the traditional medical intercession. This happens for another three months to reinforce the preferred medical intervention and to prevent a miscarriage from ever occurring.

That's the best means to utilize acupuncture to achieve fertility and conception. It's that easy and convenient. All you've got to do now is find himself a licensed acupuncturist that acupuncture and fertility might go well together. You need a true-blue acupuncture practitioner that one may be assured that the needles being inserted into his body are not just the right ones but are also needling the right places or acupuncture points.

This is the means for one to use acupuncture towards fertility, since acupuncture could make a person at risk medically if it is not practiced the right way so be careful in choosing the professional who will handle it.

Traditional Chinese medicine has been around for thousands of years and for good reason - it works. While Western science has demonstrated its value in the field of surgical and urgent care procedures, Chinese medicine often provides better preventive and disease management care. Focusing on and using the body's inner energy, or Qi, to maintain good health, prevent illness, and better handle chronic conditions, Traditional Chinese Medicine has been shown to eliminate symptoms of such "incurable" conditions as chronic joint pain, infertility, Crohn's Disease, and a host of other conditions.

The fundamental idea behind Chinese medicine is that the human body is able to heal itself of many of the illnesses and injuries experienced, so long as the body's energy flow, or Qi, is uninterrupted.

What Is Acupuncture?

The first thoughts that come to mind when most people hear the word "acupuncture" are needles and the pain normally associated with injections. The needles used in acupuncture are as fine as a human hair, as they have no need for a hollow tube like those used with syringes. Generally, there is little to no pain experienced during these procedures. The needles are used to stimulate blood flow and bioelectric activity along a specific pathway within the body. While scientific researchers debate over the effectiveness of acupuncture, patients around the globe have found relief from conditions such as chronic pain, insomnia, digestive conditions, headaches, migraines, weight loss, infertility, depression, fibromyalgia, and many other medical conditions.

Teas & Tonics, or Terrible Side Effects

The FDA's requirement that pharmaceutical companies announce the side effects of their prescription medications in all advertisements has made those commercials tragic enough to almost be humorous. Most often than not, the side effects are worse than the initial condition being treated! Instead of risking other systems within your body to the ravages of prescription chemicals, Chinese medicine offers well-established regimes of herbal teas and tonics to bring about and maintain powerful health.

A Toast to Cupping

Cupping is the practice of using heated glass or ceramic cups to relax muscles and draw out toxins. Cupping draws toxins to the skin surface, where they are more easily removed from the body through sweating and respiration.

If you have not been happy with the results from Western medicine, perhaps it's time to take a look at a method of healing that has a longer history and some amazing success stories. While not the answer to every health challenge, in many cases, acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine can be a part of one's healing journey when Western medicine have failed them.

Wishing you health and healing!

Chris Harmen writes about the benefits of Chinese Medicine modalities including acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, and herbal teas. Outdating Western Medicine, Chinese Medicine has demonstrated its ability to provide relief from many seemingly "incurable" medical conditions.

It starts with a tickle in the nose or throat, and then a runny nose. Then it progresses to frequent sneezing and a sore throat. Add in a cough, body aches, hoarseness, feverishness, chills, and a general malaise. Yes, it looks like you've caught the Common Cold.

According to Western Medical theory, the Common Cold is caused by the rhinovirus, a very adaptable virus that infects the nose, sinuses, ears, and bronchial tubes. An average duration for the Common Cold is one week. If the infection is severe, it could last for a couple of weeks.

There are many cold remedies out there. Although very few people in our culture know about it, Traditional Chinese Medicine is an effective treatment for the Common Cold.

From a Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, the primary cause of the Common Cold is a "Pathogenic Wind" that invades the body and interferes with regular functions of the respiratory and immune systems. It does sound a little odd to modern ears, but the ancient Chinese physicians knew that colds were caused by something unseen. Wind is something that cannot be seen, but its effects on the environment are quite apparent. Five thousand years ago the Chinese physicians did not have the luxury of a microscope to detect bacteria or viruses. However, they were very observant of weather patterns and the natural rhythms of their surrounding environment. So it was actually quite logical for the ancient Chinese to attribute an unseen pathogen to Wind.

When Pathogenic Wind invades from outside and attacks the body, it enters through nose and skin. It then interferes with the functions of the Wei Qi, the body's defensive energy that fights off foreign invaders. When the Wei Qi has been impeded, this gives rise to the symptoms associated with the Common Cold.

In ancient China the best doctors were not the ones who cured the sick. Instead, the greatest doctors were the ones who educated their patients and showed them how to prevent illness in the first place.

What does Traditional Chinese Medicine teach about how to prevent a Pathogenic Wind Invasion? The majority of the teachings fall under the category of common sense. Eat well. Have a healthy diet. Get plenty of sleep. Engage yourself in regular health exercises, such as yoga, qi gong, or meditation, to reduce your level of stress. Each of these things helps promote the strength of the Wei Qi and ensures your immune function will be working at an optimal level.

It is also a good idea minimize your exposure to wind. This includes not only outdoor breezes but also indoor winds, such as the cold blast of air coming from an air-conditioner. Wear clothing that is appropriate to protect you from a breezy environment. The back of the neck is an area that is quite vulnerable to Wind Invasion, so wearing a scarf is a wonderful way to ward yourself from a Pathogenic Wind.

However, if you do succumb to a Pathogenic Wind Invasion, both acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulas can help lessen the severity and shorten the duration of the invasion. This is because appropriate acupuncture treatments and certain herbal formulas are tailored to specifically drive the Pathogenic Wind out of the body, regulate the functions of the Wei Qi and alleviate the prevalent symptoms that arisen. When the Pathogenic Wind is driven out, the Wei Qi function is no longer impeded and will allow the body to recover in a much quicker fashion. A cold that could have lasted eight days might now only last three.

As a Licensed Acupuncturist, it always pleases me to see the reaction that my patients have after a treatment. "Hey! I can actually breath through my nose again." "Wow! I don't feel the strong urge to cough anymore." "My chest just doesn't feel as tight as it did when I came in." These are some of the typical responses that I have heard after I've treated someone for a Pathogenic Wind Invasion. Many of these patients were a little skeptical when they came in, but they were all seeking a treatment that would help rid them of their Common Cold symptoms. They were surprised at their realization - Traditional Chinese Medicine is effective for treating the Common Cold.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 10, 2015

Saturday, April 25th, Shaolin Institute observes World Tai Chi and Qi Gong Day with a 9:00 a.m. breathing meditation to start and followed by a talk of happy health Zen meditation and Tai Gong through quantum conscious communication and cosmic Qi. The event will also present Zen Tai Gong and Kung Fu demonstrations, teachings and festivities at Shaolin park (4350 PeachTree Industrial BLVD), on Peachtree Corners, GA 30071.

This free public event is hosted by SCF and sponsored by Shaolin Institute. This is a worldwide global health and healing event which will begin in New Zealand at 10:00 a.m. and spread time zone by time zone around the globe as it has since 2002. Locally, Shaolin Grand Master Shi Deru, along with Shaolin Institute staff members will demonstrate the ancient Chinese healing art of Tai Chi (pronounced “tie-chee”) and Tai Gong with meditation.

People of all ages, fitness levels, and abilities are invited to freely participate in cosmic Qi lecture, Qi Gong (“chee-gung”) breathing mind exercises and to learn basic Tai Chi movements alongside Grand Master Shi DeRu and his highly trained instructors.

These ancient arts not only provide significant health benefits, but have the added advantage of “not feeling like exercise”. Tai Chi and Zen Tai Gong are simple, slow, fluid, movements that, along with naturally controlled deep breathing, create cosmic Qi space, calmness of mind, body, and spirit.

This graceful art of Zen Tai Gong like health Tai Chi includes relaxing and stretching and each form or posture is supposed to flow seamlessly into the next. Zen Tai Gong is similar to Tai Chi and Qi Gong combined, a slow mental and physical Qi exercise, so the movements are in high conscious stream of mind with very easy motion on muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints, making it an ideal exercise therapy for the aged, injured, and even disabled individuals.

Close to 30 years ago, Shi DeRu, also known as Shawn X. Liu, founder and Chair of SCF and Headmaster of Shaolin Institute, brought Qi Gong and traditional Tai Chi to the southeastern U.S., opening schools in Georgia, Alabama and Louisiana. He has devoted his life to helping people and is doing so through generous community outreach efforts like World Tai Chi Day, Asian cultural celebrations, and martial arts performances by his highly acclaimed Shaolin Institute Performance Team worldwide.

Over the years DeRu has developed Tai Gong, his own amalgamation of Tai Chi, Zen meditation and Qi Gong, designed to redirect the body’s natural energy or “Qi” to and through Jing Luo (healing meridians or healing energy points) located throughout the body.

This dynamic cosmic Qi is the body’s natural healing mechanism, stimulating blood flow, improving organ function, and awakening the communication channels between mind and body while strengthening muscles and ligaments.

Zen Tai Gong like Tai Chi helps in the treatment of anxiety, depression, back pain, arthritis, low bone density, breast cancer, Parkinson’s disease, sleep disorders, and speeds rehabilitation after a stroke.

Grand Master Shi Deru has helped many students overcome life-threatening conditions that did not respond well to conventional therapies. He credits success to the “mindset and cosmic qi flow” in one body-mind system.
