    Role of Chinese medicine in fertility:

    When it comes to the question of fertility and infertility there are no easy answers. Traditional Chinese medicine has answers that are slowly gaining acceptance in Western culture. The basic philosophy on which Western medicine is based is that the idea of a healthy human as a machine. On the contrary Traditional Chinese medicine focuses on the whole body, including the spirit, as an entity and in cases of fertility Chinese medicinal treatment considers thinking about fertility begins long before infertility becomes an issue. Traditional Chinese medicine indicates that living a healthy life is sound advice for anyone who is thinking of attempting pregnancy as being at optimum health is best not only for maximum fertility but for a healthy pregnancy and the ability to bounce back more quickly after the pregnancy.

    Treatment of infertility:

    As with western medicine there are no guaranties in case of Chinese medicine but incorporating Chinese medicine into infertility treatments can bring a balance to the process that may otherwise be lacking. If failure persists even after 1 year of trying to conceive pregnancy under normal conditions traditional Chinese medicine can help in the process of trying to conceive. Usually the first approach is to use a combination of acupuncture and herbs as medical studies have indicated that acupuncture and certain herbs can increase blood flow to the uterus and stimulate ovulation in women and can help increase sperm motility in men. Acupuncture may also increase a couple’s chance of conception when used in conjunction with more contemporary types of infertility treatments such as In-vitro fertilization. In addition to these, it is seen that while undergoing most contemporary medical procedures associated with infertility, there are usually a lot of drugs involved but acupuncture and herbs can help alleviate these problems. In cases of infertility over the age of 40 traditional Chinese medicines uses a couple-centered approach to deal with. The basic idea is centered on the fact to boost to get the couple superbly healthy and to get rid of any underlying problem, such as endometriosis.

      Hi

      I’ve found acupuncture to work very well for friends who’ve suffered from infertility.

      I’ve also found that vitex agnus cactus is a great herb for correcting progesterone problems – the hormone vital for pregnancy.

      Great article!
