As you review this information, please keep in mind that the Organ systems described below reflect Eastern medical theories and philosophies.
Kidney Organ System
The release of an ovum is controlled by the kidneys. The kidneys also create a substance called jing Qi, which is required to have a healthy body, mind, and pregnancy. If an imbalance exists within the kidneys, Jing Qi may be inadequate in supply and infertility may be a result. Chinese herbal medicine, eastern nutrition, along with acupuncture, can nourish and support Jing Qi and overall kidney health.
Spleen Organ System
An adequate supply of blood is required by a woman's body to sustain a normal menstrual cycle, a growing fetus, and healthy pregnancy. A disharmony within the Spleen can result in an inadequate supply and imbalance of blood. Acupuncture, Eastern nutrition, and Chinese herbal medicine can build and nourish blood, in order to promote a healthy flow of blood to the uterus.
Liver Organ System
In order to conceive and have a healthy pregnancy, it is important to have a free flow of Qi and Blood throughout the body. The Liver is in charge of facilitating the smooth flow of Qi and Blood. When it is out of balance, areas of the body will not receive the required supply of Qi and Blood. This imbalance can lead to depression, anxiety, stress and increase infertility.
