Fertility with Chinese Medicine – The Natural Alternative
Naturally your chances to become pregnant are the highest while you are in your 20s. Women after 31 years have exponentially decreasing chances to become pregnant. According to Dr David Adamson 25% of women aged 35 have trouble getting pregnant. On average 41 is seen as the last chance to conceive naturally and is the beginning of a struggle with medical solutions such as IVF to become pregnant. Strong side effects, emotional stress, pressure and depression are often a result in the long process often including miscarriages. Chinese medicine is a powerful solution to help you with fertility.

Increase your Fertility Chances by 60%
In a study Wolfgang E. Paulus et. Al (2002) used acupuncture prior and after embryo transfer with IVF. 42.5% of the group of patients treated with acupuncture were able to become pregnant compared to 26.3% chances of pregnancy for the control group that did not receive acupuncture. This shows that TCM can enhance your chances and in this case even double your chances. Research by Ried K. and Stuart K. (2011) confirms that Chinese herbal medicine can improve pregnancy rates 2-fold within a 4-month period compared with Western medical fertility drug therapy or IVF.
Continuing with IVF, IUI or ICSI?
If you decide to pursue the conventional methods of IVF, IUI and ICSI you might want to increase your chances of becoming pregnant. Improve your chances with IVF, IUI or ICSI by integrating Chinese herbal medicine before and during your treatment. According to the 2012 National Summary of CDC (U.S. Federal Agency) women aged above 40 had a low chance in singleton live births. Research by Dr Zhang (2012) using ultrasound and hormone testing revealed that Chinese herbal medicine promotes ovulation, egg development, sperm motility and count and prevents miscarriages. Our practitioners suggest a treatment period of several months prior to your conventional therapy and to continue your Chinese herbal therapy during pregnancy to increase chances of giving birth to a healthy baby naturally.
Addressing Male Infertility with Chinese Medicine
Dr Zhang (2012) found out that Chinese herbal medicine helps to increase sperm motility and count, two of the most common causes of male infertility. Chinese medicine can help to address the root cause of infertility by preventing anti-sperm antibodies such as AsAb and other autoimmune system disorders being produced by the body leading to male infertility. Increase your chances of fertility with Chinese medicine and restore your health and reproductive system naturally.
Infertility is a Symptom, Not a Disease
Chinese medicine does not see infertility as a disease and is able to help with pregnancy using natural herbal remedies. In fact, Chinese medicine is able to reverse infertility at a very high rate as demonstrated by researcher Dr Zhang. And there is much more power behind Chinese herbs.
