How TCM treats infertility

Traditional Chinese Medicine use herbs and acupuncture to treat infertility

Traditional Chinese herbal Medicine and accupuncture can improve your reproductive health in several ways

Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture help you to:

  • balance hormonal levels to regulate menstruation and ovulation. (it is the first and most important work)

  • reduce stress; this is also very important when trying to conceive as stress reduces blood flow to the reproductive organs and negatively affects hormonal balance.

  • strengthen the immune system for overall health and wellbeing.
  • increase blood flow to the uterus which thickens the endometrial lining for implantation.

A study produced by the Reproductive Medicine and FertilityCenter in Colorado Springs has found that acupuncture can increase the success rates of IVF treatment. 51% of women in the acupuncture treatment group became pregnant compared to 36% of those not receiving acupuncture.
