Patient 28: Treatment (Earth)

Patient:  Female, age 34

Element:  Earth

Number of prior treatments: One

Reason for treatment:   Three miscarriages, at between 3 and 12 weeks, in the past two years.

Treatment given:

1                    CV/GV (Ren Mai/Du Mai) block:  CV 1, CV 24, GV1, GV 28.   To be expected after the trauma of the birth of her second child two years ago.  Very protracted labour, very little help from nursing staff in the labour ward because they were under severe pressure, finally required forceps delivery, with resultant need for stitches which took some time to heal.  Birth traumas very often lead to a CV/GV block, even if there has been no surgery. A CV/GV block is also often the cause of infertility, particularly if there has been a previous Caesarian operation (literally a cut across the CV meridian), or any kind of sexual trauma.  In this patient’s case the CV/GV block meant that all her officials, including of course both CV and GV, have sufficient energy to allow an egg to fertilize but insufficient energy to keep the baby in the womb.  In cases of infertility, the officials have insufficient energy for fertilization in the first place.
2                    St 42, Sp 3

At the end of treatment:   She could feel an immediate change after the CV/GV block.  “I feel lighter”.  Better colour, and happier as she left.   

Time of next treatment:  One week.      

Proposals for next treatment:    Continue working on Earth.  She is starting to re-evaluate her life, particularly her relationship with her mother, and is beginning to understand that treatment could also help her deal with quite traumatic family problems in her childhood.  Since she has always been able to conceive very quickly, I am very optimistic that her next pregnancy will proceed smoothly.
