Chinese Medicine – 2,000 years of success treating infertility
The first record of infertility treatment using Chinese Medicine dates back to approximately 11AD. Gynecology, or the exclusive specialty of treating women’s health issues, has existed as a distinct art in Chinese Medicine since the same period. What this means is that when you begin a Chinese Medical regimen for infertility, you are entering into a form of treatment that has been used by literally tens of millions of women throughout the ages.
A comprehensive approach
Whether a couple opts for 100% natural or technologically assisted conception, natural fertility enhancement offers a much-needed element – the element of holistic, individualized care. While conventional medicine is king in terms of scientific research and complex microscopic procedures, Traditional Chinese Medicine is unmatched in its understanding and application of treatment that addresses the entirety of body, mind, AND spirit.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has known for centuries that body, mind and spirit are part of a single, organic whole. Any attempt at healing and wholeness must by definition address all three of these vital aspects of the human being. In other words, the state of hormonal balance and function, and the structure of organs and tissues, influence and are influenced by life experiences, emotional tendencies, thought patterns, and daily habits. Where conventional medicine often seeks to eliminate mind and spirit as “confounding variables” which skew the results of experiments, TCM includes them as a matter of fundamental principle.
A win-win for fertility patients
There is no way for any healthcare provider, natural or conventional, to predict when or if you will become pregnant. However, in cases where pregnancy is achieved, it usually happens within 3 to 9 months of treatment. And, if you eventually decide to try IUI or IVF, your body will be more prepared to respond to its fullest potential because of the time you have spent on your fertility program with us.
Our treatment program is both affordable and cost-effective. Whether you are using natural treatment only, or combining with conventional treatment, our goal is to provide you an option that brings maximum results for the price. A three month treatment program, with office visits, treatments, herbs, and supplements costs less than a single IUI cycle, and much less than an IVF cycle. This is especially helpful if you are using our services in combination with IVF.
