A miscarriage may be triggered by several reasons, which greatly depend on the health status of both the mother and the fetus. Miscarriage may also be related to unhealthy lifestyles such as excessive alcohol intake and smoking. If three consecutive miscarriages occur, this condition is known as habitual (recurrent) miscarriages.
In TCM, treatments include replenishing the Qi, nourishing the Blood and strengthening the physiological functions of the spleen. To replenish the body's Qi and nourish the blood reserves, the mother needs to watch her diet and consume proper and nutritious food, such as broccoli, spinach, soya beans, milk and other nutrient-rich food. In addition, she should also have adequate rest with moderate exercise, such as taichi, yoga, frequent slow walks or just simple stretching movements. This ensures the smooth flow of Qi and Blood in the body. There are old grandmother's recipes in TCM such as the red date tea or ginger tea for the day-to-day wellbeing of mothers by constantly and slowly replenishing and nourishing the Qi and Blood in the body.
