A Natural and Integrated Approach to Infertility
Infertility is a very common challenge in our modern world. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 7.3 million women received infertility services between 2011 and 2014.(1) Infertility often responds well to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture, when other treatment methods have failed. In fact, acupuncture has been clinically proven to enhance the chances of fertilization and live births by increasing blood flow to the uterus, stimulating ovulation and enhancing sperm quality and motility.(2)(3) Eastern medicine also helps address underlying stress and menstrual cycle regulation, which often accompany infertility.
Both TCM and Ayurveda place a great emphasis on ones health months before conception is desired for optimal results. Both Eastern traditions offer guidance on improving ones overall well-being and specifically on enhancing fertility through diet, herbal medicine, lifestyle changes and acupuncture. It is akin to tending the soil before the seed is planted.
