We use traditional Chinese medical techniques (Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine) to enhance both women’s and
men’s fertility and improve their health. We offer an alternative treatment to the infertility.
Traditional Chinese medicine holds that a humans body must be gently nourished and encouraged to produce health eggs
and bear fruit. It works to rebalance the delicate interplay of energies that occur each month and to prepare her uterine
lining to receive that fertilized egg.
In our over 30 years of practicing TCM and applying its principle to treating infertility, we found that most hormonal
imbalances which are considered untreatable by Western medicine respond to our TCM methods of treatment. Many
patients came to us having been diagnosed with high FSH levels, luteal phase defect, polycystic ovarian syndrome,
endometriosis, unexplained infertility and so on. Most of them have gone through months or years of trying to get pregnant
using ART. And many of them are delighted to discover that after three to eight months of Chinese herbal remedy and
acupuncture treatments that we prescribe, they become pregnant with no further effect.
Many hormonal problems occur because of slight imbalances in the endocrine system. Even a slight aberration can throw
the entire system off so it no longer functions smoothly. Not only the physical obstructions in the ovaries, fallopian tubes,
or uterus and hormonal problems but also the levels of stress can make her have a minuscule chance of conceiving that
month. TCM treatments are designed to stimulate the body’s own natural production of hormones while restoring the health
and harmony of the entire system. Once the body is in balance and its hormones are restored, conception can occur.
Chinese Medicine seeks to restore balance to the body. Therefore, the practitioner begins by doing a Chinese medical
diagnosis to determine the patient’s individualized pattern of disharmony even with the same condition – infertility. Based
on the individualized pattern diagnosis, the practitioner will then craft a personalized treatment plan encompassing all
aspects of the patient’s life. No matter whether your practitioner primarily uses acupuncture or Chinese herbal medicine
or some combination of both, their focus will be on eliminating the root imbalance that is causing your infertility.
Patients seeking fertility & IVF/IUI enhancement, relief from endometriosis, recurrent pregnancy loss, PCOS,
aging eggs, thin endometrial lining, elevated FSH level, luteral phase defects, irregular menstruation, ovulatory defects,
ovarian insufficiency and menopause syndrome make up of our current workload.
Many patients are drawn to TCM treatments for fertility after hearing stories of its success that seem almost miraculous.
Certainly not everyone who undergoes treatment will have success. By using a truly holistic approach of treating the whole
person (in many cases, the couple) and employing strategies to gradually change the delicate environment where
conception and gestation occur, TCM is often able to achieve successful results for couples who have failed with other
methods. Our practitioners use a special treatment protocol for couples who have failed with IUI and IVF.
In our over 30 years of practice, though we suffer through our patient’s heartache, we also experience their joy
when they become pregnant as a result of our treatment after being told they were infertile by Western medicine.
