Getting pregnant with help of acupuncture & herbs
Traditional Chinese Medicine and fertility
Children can be such a delight in one’s life, especially one’s own. The inability to father/mother biological ones can be ratherdistressing. With age, the statistics count against one, especially for women. Even the IVF figures can look depressing.
For women, the IVF success rate is about:
41-43% : under 35 years old
33-36% : 35-37 years old
23-27% : 38-40 years old
13-18% : over 41 years old
For men, research shows those living in developed countries, especially in urban areas have significantly lower sperm count and sperm morphology and motility. The stresses of modern living do not help.
Acupuncture and traditional Chinese herbal medicine can assist in enhancing fertility in men and women. Such approaches includes lifestyle and dietary changes. As with all good things, it can take time: from a few weeks to a year, depending on individual circumstances. I have treated women/men who obtained results within weeks while others could take as long as a year as they sort various matters in their life and allow their bodies to adjust to the changes.
The length of time is not uncommon in IVF treatment too. Most women tended to need a few cycles of IVF treatment before falling pregnant and some have been through as many as 10 cycles and still have no result. Acupuncture and traditional Chinese herbal medicine can be used alongside IVF treatment with very good outcomes.
Fertility issues are not just confined to women. For straight couples, the men clearly need to be checked out as well. For gay couples, acupuncture and traditional Chinese herbal medicine can contribute to better quality of sperm and eggs.
If you are thinking of having children of your own, come in for a course of treatment to boost your health, increase your fertility, and prepare for a life with bundles of joy.
