The last few blog posts we discussed how Acupuncture can help hormonal balance. Starting from today, we will continue for a few blog posts about how Acupuncture can help blood flow.
Blood delivers nutrients, hormones, and oxygen throughout the body. For women who are trying to conceive, blood helps balance and normalize the reproductive organ functions. By improving blood flow, we help the reproductive organs in their task of conception.
Blood delivers nutrients: A good blood flow to the uterus and ovaries are necessary to provide the reproductive system the nutrients it needs. A decrease in nutrients may affect the body’s hormones and cause fatigue which may impact fertility. Once a woman becomes pregnant, it becomes extremely important that blood flow is increased so that the necessary nutrients can flow through the mother’s body to the fetus.
Blood helps hormone flow: As discussed previously, hormones are controlled and transported through the hypothalamic–pituitary–ovarian axis (HPO axis) to the reproductive organs. These reproductive organs need a sufficient blood flow. The endometrial lining, for example, must be thick to allow the embryo to develop. Ovarian health is also affected by blood flow and hormonal state.
Not only does blood transport the necessary oxygen to your reproductive system, it also removes the CO2 and other waste items from your cells thus removing general toxins from your body and improving your overall and reproductive health.
