Male infertility takes 40-50% of infertility and approximately 7% of men are experiencing it. However, because the sperm quality doesn’t really affect the sexual ability, a lot of the male realize their infertility until they try to be a father.
TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) attributes sperm quality to one to five organs, but mainly it is controlled by Kidneys and Liver (TCM terminology). Usually, for western semen analysis includes: sperm count; motility; morphology…those tests will help western fertility specialists to figure out the quality of sperm. For TCM, we focus on improve the controlling organs functions; blood and energy flow and whole body balance to help improve general sperm quality.
For male infertility, TCM herbs and acupuncture have been used for thousands years. Different from supplements, TCM practitioners need to make customized diagnosis before we prescribe the herbs and acupuncture points. We need to figure out which internal organ(s) is/are the one connect with male infertility.
General speaking, for male infertility, acupuncture and herbal treatments for stress relief, circulation improvement, de-toxicity and energy (Qi) boosting work well. Also, healthy diet, sleep pattern creation, regular exercise can help speed up the positive results.
