Chinese medicine is able to help with infertility utilizing acupuncture and natural herbal remedies. In fact, Chinese medicine is able to reverse infertility at a very high rate as demonstrated by researcher Dr Zhang.

Increase Your Fertility Chances by 60% with Chinese Medicine

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 increase your chances by 60%. 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.

The Power of Chinese Herbs

Chinese medical herbs are a safe, non-invasive and natural solution to help with pregnancy and ovulation. Ideally, taken at least 6 months before pregnancy herbal therapy can strengthen your body to conceive naturally. Chinese medicine is known for its power to regulate menstrual cycles, hormonal levels, blood flow and ovarian function. These factors have strong influence on chances for natural pregnancy and proof why Chinese herbs are so powerful in helping you to achieve pregnancy the natural way.

Benefits of Acupuncture

When Can Acupuncture Support Me?

1. Before your IVF, IUI or ICSI and during natural conception
It is recommended to start with acupuncture at least 3 months before your first IVF. Acupuncture can help you to balance your hormones which might be out of balance due to long-term intake of contraception pills. Due to acupuncture’s ability to improve blood circulation the uterus and ovary are better nurtured and are able to generate a better quality ovum. While ovulation injections are able to increase ovulation, acupuncture is able to boost and enhance the quality of the ovum. 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 and acupuncture during pregnancy to increase chances of giving birth to a healthy baby naturally. In order to achieve these results acupuncture of 1-3 times per week is recommended where the number of acupuncture sessions depends on the Qi of the kidney, thus the condition of your health as mentioned by Wolfgang E. Paulus (2002).

2. Before and after embryo transfer
About 3 to 4 months prior to your embryo transfer regular acupuncture sessions twice per week can improve the inner environment of your uterus and prepare your body for the implementation as confirmed by David Johnson (2006). Should you proceed with IUI insemination or an embryo transfer then acupuncture will support you by reducing side effects after anaesthesia such as insomnia, hot flushes, night sweats, swollen belly, fatigue and anxiety. After a successful embryo transfer acupuncture is able to support your pregnancy in which you might be lacking Qi and blood. Discomfort such as morning sickness can be alleviated with acupuncture to protect the foetus.

3. After successful pregnancy
After giving birth your body will undergo a process of recovery in which acupuncture can support you by easing pain and discomfort. Acupuncture with its ability to improve blood supply is a great tool to assist your body naturally in regaining its strength. Gif Maker 57 1

Acupuncture for Men

A busy lifestyle with a considerable amount of stress is increasingly contributing to infertility in men where sperm mobility and quality is limited. Men aged 40 years and above are more likely to have decreased sperm motility, mobility and abnormalities. 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 (Dr Zhang, 2013). Chinese medicine can restore your health and reproductive system naturally.Acupuncture can help with impotence of the reproductive system by improving the body’s blood flow and supporting you in reducing stress hormones. Focusing on achieving a healthy and balanced body it can effectively improve your fertility chances. Stimulating the hypothalamus of your brain it balances your endocrine system which has a positive effect on your immunity and infertility as reported by Jen-Chuen Hsieh (2001) and Deng Liangyue, WHO (2001).
