Natural and Alternative Miscarriages Treatment Options

Miscarriages Treatment {introduction}

A miscarriage occurs when a woman loses a fetus before the 20th week of pregnancy. This can be caused by a problem with the uterus or cervix; a chromosomal abnormality in the fetus due to a problem with the egg or sperm; a condition called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, which causes the overproduction of the hormone androgen that impedes egg development; and other factors. Signs that a woman has had a miscarriage include vaginal bleeding, abdominal cramps, and passing tissue from the vagina.
Below you will find alternative and natural treatment options including those from a Chinese Medicine perspective for Miscarriages.

TCM Diagnostic Patterns Related to Miscarriages

Listed below are Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnostic patterns that are commonly involved with this western medical condition/symptom. Properly applied, Chinese Medicine (including acupuncture and herbal medicine) treats patterns not individual symptoms/conditions which may better account for the range of symptoms often experienced by individuals. Pattern diagnosis/treatment is a crucial part of using Chinese Medicine for disease prevention instead of focusing on solely symptomatic treatments as is somewhat more common in western medicine. For more on this concept, please read What Does Acupuncture Treat? Or Treating the "Cause" and not the "Symptoms".

    As well as fertility and birthing issues, acupuncture is very often used during pregnancy as it is both effective and in some cases there are no viable western alternatives.  Breech position, back pain, morning sickness, propensity towards miscarriages, and more are all commonly treated.  There are a few points, however, that are "forbidden" or "contraindicated" during pregnacy (our list is here).
