Enhancing Fertility Naturally with Chinese Medicine

Chinese medicine, which includes acupuncture and Chinese herbs, assists many couples who have tried for years to conceive. In women* undergoing in-vitro fertilization, acupuncture and Chinese herbs can increase the success rate by 40-60%. There is a precise science behind the ancient practice of acupuncture. It is capable of regulating and increasing the flow of ‘qi,’ or vital energy, that enlivens every organ and, in fact, every single cell within the human body. The increased circulation of qi throughout the body—including the reproductive organs—helps the body to begin to heal itself. 3For every medical and psychological reason why couples do not successfully conceive on their own, there is a Chinese medical counterpart. For example, absence or irregularity of ovulation, a thin endometrial lining, and poor egg quality can all be caused by deficiencies of kidney yin/yang and/or qi and blood. Excess conditions caused by stagnation of qi, blood, and phlegm can manifest as fibroids, endometriosis, and blocked fallopian tubes. These imbalances can also affect male sperm count, motility and morphology. In instances where Western medicine is unable to identify the reason why a woman is not becoming pregnant, Chinese medicine can often trace an imbalance or deficiency based on common symptoms the patient may be experiencing. And by doing so, easily remedy these imbalances with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. As an acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist, I am passionate about helping couples to become parents. Nurturing women, helping them maintain their pregnancies and give birth to healthy babies are top priorities for my practice. Let me—and this ancient healing art—be a part of your journey and enhance your fertility naturally! ______________________________________________________________________________________ According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) 11.8% or 7.3 million women in the United States suffer from infertility.
