Back pain in pregnancy
Lower back pain in pregnancy is often the cause of considerable life disruption in pregnancy. Back pain when viewed through the Chinese medical energy model is the most common symptom of Kidney complex deficiency (inherent constitutional weakness). Whilst orthodox biomedicine marginalises back pain in pregnancy, as although it is often debilitating, it is not life threatening.
Afflicting most women when pregnant, this is easy to fix. (Yes – I am serious – easy to work with at home, when you have a few secret ingredients and not much time)
Not using the orthodox methods of seeing a structural specialist, or waiting for baby to be born – it is as easy as dad or someone helping you at home, with a fascinating and safe and quick way to delightful comfort and better sleep!!

All pain is seen in Chinese medicine as being due to the reduction of normal circulation.
Many things may cause this.
1) – Lack of the essential energy that grows the baby easily – central symptom – back ache – next one – up and down all night to pee . . easily fixed – just add moxa!!! Chinese medicine sees maternal Kidney Qi supplying developing baby with all of its life force. The direct impact of improving maternal Kidney Qi is baby’s enhanced growth and constitution. Means any and all high risk issues – especially worrying you about baby intrauterine growth are all solved – just add moxa!!!
2) – Stored cold from all that icing of past injuries, or through being an avid water skier, or just through life. Cold causes the muscles and tissues to contract, making them hurt and not work as they should. Learn more in Cold is Not A Woman’s Friend.
3) – Not enough Magnesium in your body – Most are suffering not from named medical problems, but what sets these in place – on all – pregnant or not – nutritional deficiencies. You medical specialist birthing or not – Western medicine goes on a journey to find chemicals not the answers – here you find Magnesium (Not calcium) has been researched over the decades to be the answer to all pregnancy woes – pre eclampsia, fluid swelling, high blood pressure, all aches and pains, and of course gestational diabetes, digestive problems, constipation, depression a and all matters stillbirth and miscarriage having a blood circulation or a fetal growth component – why not listen to your body – there is pain – that means – lack of magnesium and see an acupuncturists as they are trained to work with the body’s “why’s” not the medical “don’t know’s”/let us worry you and monitor excessively . .
Magnesium deficiency causing all tremors, aches, spasming, (and most pregnancy upsets and birthing and post natal ones – so totally safe and needed in all pregnant women).
4) – It could be a lack of Blood energy (I always suggest pregnant women take Chinese herbs to enhance theirs so their breastfeeding and their sanity and sleeping and retention of head hair are all perfect after birth)
There is much said on the use of Magnesium here. Magnesium supplementation allows comfort, sleep, freedom from Gestational Diabetes and a sense of calm to pervade your life.
The use of cold stagnates and congests the Qi allowing for lack of circulation and then pain. Avoid all cold. In the modern world, ingestion of cold water is seen as normal, as is taking food for immediate consumption out of the fridge, walking barefoot on cold surfaces, sleeping in draughts, especially under air conditioning and fans and open windows, or using ice to numb (especially after birth and on engorged breasts in Brisbane and increasingly in New Zealand, against all common sense) and of icing all damaged and inflamed parts of a body as standard procedures.
