Approximately 2.5 million American couples suffer from infertility. The cause of infertility may stem from either partner. About 60% of infertility cases are due to female conditions, while 40 % are due to male conditions. In either case, it can be extremely heartbreaking. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers hope to the couple by establishing harmony within the entire body. Not only does TCM improve the probability of becoming pregnant and having a healthier baby. It also serves to enhance the function of the whole body. This holistic approach provides the key to unlocking unlimited potential in healing.
In TCM, we believe conception will occur when Yin, Yang, Chi, and Blood in the channels are harmonized, when there is a peaceful Shen (spirit), and when kidney Jing (essence) is abundant and strong. Together, these aspects are the foundation of overall health and the root of conception. The causes of infertility are ovulation problems, endometriosis, tubal factor, hormonal imbalance, unexplained infertility, poor ovarian reserve function, thin endometrium, irregular period, poor egg quality, premature ovarian failure, amenorrhea, habitual miscarriage, abnormally shaped uterus, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), male factor, etc. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine provide a non-invasive, holistic approach to reversing infertility and has a surprising success rate of 65% among infertility in women. This is a very high number considering that many women discover the acupuncture rate in their search for infertility solutions. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can also be used in combination with other Western medical treatments, such as IVF and IUI to increase a couple’s chance of conception. In research 42% of patients that received both IVF and acupuncture became pregnant while in the IVF group 26% conceived.
We specialize in the treatment of reproductive enhancement and recognize that every person and couple having difficulty conceiving need individualized treatment. We thoroughly examine your overall health to pinpoint where imbalances are, then develop a treatment plan that is appropriate for you.
