Successful Herbs to Move Liver Qi

We often say in Traditional Chinese Medicine that the liver is the system most easily susceptible to stress. Stress knots the Qi (energy) and makes its flow stagnate – this happens most quickly in the liver energy system. The liver, in TCM, is in charge of the smooth flow of Qi throughout the body. This means that if Qi flow is impaired (ie, by stress), the liver system will suffer. Likewise, if the liver energy system is weak or stagnant (from lifestyle choices, diet, trauma, emotional stress, illness or genetic factors), Qi flow throughout the body may be impaired. continue reading »

Food Color and Nutrition

In Chinese medical theory, food is considered medicine. Food has qualities and functions biochemically and energetically that target specific organs. Not only that, but the action a particular food takes to benefit that organ in terms of taste, color and temperature is what is included in Five Element theory. Food has a relationship to both the natural elements as well as the organs in the body and balances the elements of fire, earth, metal, water and wood to healthy, generating cycles. continue reading »

Want to Have a Baby? This is a MUST Read!

We get asked everyday how acupuncture helps with Fertility.

Did you know . . . lots of research has been done with acupuncture to boost clinical outcomes with fertility patients. In clinical trials, it was shown that Acupuncture boosts the success rate of an IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) patient having a live birth by 90%.

 

Acupuncture has shown by blood work, and ultrasounds, MRI scans to show a significant boost in circulation to the uterus and improvement to egg quality and sperm quality and mobility. Or as we like to say “Supercharge the Egg and Supercharge the Sperm” to make the outcome of getting pregnant happen much faster than it would without acupuncture.

 

At Cloud 9, we have over a decade of clinical success in helping couples conceive, especially difficult cases. We have a 90% success rate in helping couples deliver a healthy baby – even after they’ve been told the chances of conceiving on their own “are virtually zero.” Now there is hope.

 

Our clinic is different because we don’t just do acupuncture. We offer many different types of innovative, cutting edge technology therapies that help our patients get pregnant in half the time that traditional acupuncture patients do. We are one of only 50 clinics in the country that have ATP Resonance BioTherapy™, which resets your body and rejuvenates the cells with an anti-aging effect for the Egg, Sperm, and Uterus. We also use a gentle and relaxing transdermal Chinese Herb therapy, and electrostim acupuncture.

 

Challenging cases are welcome at Cloud 9. Please Call for a Consult to begin.

Moxibustion and Dysmenorrhea

A study conducted by Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has determined that the use of moxibustion at specific days during a woman’s menstrual cycle can decrease pain associated with menstruation. Dysmenorrhea or painful menstruation is a big problem for many women. This study used moxibustion, an accessory modality of TCM, to treat the pain associated with menstruation. The study and its systematic review showed moxibustion treatments were more effective at relieving pain only when the moxibustion began prior to the onset of actual menstruation. This is also the theory behind Traditional Chinese Medicine, that it should be used as preventive care. The efficacy of using moxibustion during the premenstrual time period holds great promise for those who are debilitated by dysmenorrhea. continue reading »
