When we hear about an infertile couple we tend to think the woman is infertile or has fertility issues. However, this is not always the case! Men can be infertile or have fertility issues as well. Statistics from the National Infertility Association show between 35 percent and 40 percent of infertility problems among couples are actually caused by male conditions.
Most men with male fertility issues do not notice symptoms other than inability to conceive a child, signs and symptoms associated with male infertility include:
Here at AcuNatural Health in Brisbane, Jane Ma, uses acupuncture to relieve the stress, fatigue and emotional toll that comes with male fertility issues and stimulation to improve blood circulation which has an effect on sperm production and quality, without causing any changes in behavior or sexual desire. Acupuncture is also used to balance the hormonal system and restore virility in men. In conjunction with acupuncture Jane also uses Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) herbals. Chinese medicine has shown to significantly improve the production of healthy sperm by strengthening the functions of the male reproductive organs.
” A study at the Institute of Acupuncture and Meridians, Anhui College of TCM, Hefei, China, reported that 87 cases of male infertility with semen abnormalities were treated with an herbal formula. Semen analysis after treatment showed that sperm parameters improved in 83 of the 87 cases, or over 95 percent of the time. Studies have shown that herbs which stabilize the Kidney essence and tonify the Liver and Kidneys, have been found to improve sperm motility. Kidney Yang tonics have been found to decrease impotence, fatigue, low back pain, urinary frequency, and spermatorrhea.” (Beard, 2013)
