Acupuncture Miami and Virility

Acupuncture Miami is widely known to treat infertility.  Virility can also be enhanced with acupuncture and herbs.  Virility is often associated with male vigor and fertility.  The last 50 years though, lower sperm count and male impotency have been growing at an alarming rate.  This concern has now given male infertility attention it deserves due to the phenomenal rise of this problem.

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has long been concerned with male sexual health, Chinese society being a patriarchal based society.  Environmental and nutritional conditions of the modern world have greatly affected sperm production.  Pollution directly correlates with male impotency as showed in a study of low sperm count and quality of tollgate workers compared to men working in relatively unpolluted settings who possessed double the normal sperm count of those tollgate workers.

Bad habits such as smoking and too much alcohol intake also add to the risk for male impotency.  In the modern world, exposure to radiation such as x-ray, airport scanners and even prolonged computer use can damage DNA particularly, sperm DNA.  In a study done in 2006, farmers growing and consuming organic produce have twice the sperm counts of men who consumed food bought on supermarkets and groceries, food treated heavily with pesticides and growth hormones.  On the personal dimension, high emotional tension and high stress levels also pay a heavy toll on male sexual virility substantially.

Acupuncture Miami has shown to improve both sperm count and quality on men who have issues of infertility of unknown cause. Studies showed that recorded an increase in sperm count and motility after acupuncture treatments.

To cite one, in a study published in Fertility and Sterility in 2005, researchers have found that sperm samples from men with infertility of unknown cause before and after acupuncture treatments exhibited fewer symptomatic problems in their sperm and an increase in the number of normal sperm.

Infertility for both male and female more often than not has poor kidney chi to blame.  The kidneys according to TCM, are prime organs for reproduction and sex. Kidney yin deficiency is a condition where the force that controls the fluid or water substances of the body, the yin, is in an imbalanced low state. Semen, being fluid, is a yin element and its deficiency manifests in low output.  Specific herbs, and supplements and food that provide yin energy are usually recommended for this.  Kidney yang deficiency is a condition where the yang, or fire energy is depleted. Yang energy is the force that springs the body into action. The kinetic motility of the sperm is a type of yang energy. For weak motility, herbs are introduced to invigorate kidney yang.

Acupuncture does help treat male infertility; however, to fully reinvigorate male virility, a change of lifestyle is necessary.  Cigarette smoking should cease, allow oneself not to be overwhelmed by stress and eat healthy, low fat, less acidic foods.

Ft Lauderdale Acupuncture and the Body Circuit Board

The marvel of Chinese medicine is that thousands of years ago, it was already aware of the existence of the human body’s meridian system.  According to Chinese medicine, the meridian system is an intricate body map that supplies and transmits vital energy to every part of the body.

A computer-enhanced image produced in the Necker Hospital of a subject injected with a radioactive tracer on the body’s acupuncture points and taken with a gamma camera showed what eerily looked like a circuit board.  This was, in fact, the body’s meridian system.

The meridian system works like the circulatory system although it is not part of the body’s anatomical composition.  Not being able to locate the meridian system in the human anatomy does not mean that it is not there, it just means that its reality is still beyond the comprehensive understanding of conventional western medicine.

Similar to the circulatory system where blood is channeled through it, the meridian system is the body’s conduit to the life force called chi or qi.

The Necker study observed that the slower the energy flowed through the meridians, the subject experienced more ailments and the more optimal the chi flowed, the subject continuously experienced good health.

With the circuit board computer analogy, one can glean that the meridian system is the motherboard of the body and chi is the information flowing around the computer.  When information the computer processes travels slower than expected, one would suspect the computer of having a virus.

The expression, “my computer is running slow today” because of a suspected virus in the computer may be similar in ways to one saying “I feel weak today” or  “I don’t feel well today”  because there are blockages of the chi in the meridian system.

What does the computer user do when he/she suspects a computer virus in his PC? He/She buys and installs an antivirus program to rid of the bug(s) in his/her PC and make it run efficiently again.

In a similar way, the person who has a disease or ailment, goes to see a Chinese acupuncturist who introduces hair-like needles into the skin to adjust the flow of chi and make it flowing optimally again.

The Ft Lauderdale acupuncture needles open up the meridian pathways, act as conductors to chi outside the body (similar to how metallic towers attract lightning) and restore neural and physiological balance to the body.  Chi should be balanced according to the neuro-physiological capacity of the body.

Too much chi can also be detrimental to the health of a person as the lack of it. Again, we can use the circuit board computer analogy and see that if the PC processes too much information all at once, the computer freezes and needs to be rebooted.

If the person stores too much chi, the brain is often affected and the disease can manifest itself through psychosis, headaches or memory loss among others.
