Fertility issues are a common problem in today’s society. As our lives have become busier and more stressful, it has become increasingly difficult to find the time to care for ourselves properly. Nourishment on all levels is important and greatly affects the ability to conceive. Granted there are certainly other health issues that can affect conception but ruling those out, lifestyle, diet and the use of Chinese herbal medicine can create a very positive environment for conception.
Chinese herbal medicine has been used for thousands of years to restore health and balance. With patience and a little time, pregnancy has a very successful chance of occurring naturally without the use of chemicals.
Even though many turn to the assistance of IVF/IUI, we do not know what long term effects these procedures could have on the mother or unborn child. Women who do use this approach report suffering many physical and emotional symptoms while using the hormone supplements associated with IVF/IUI.
However, even for those who do choose the IVF/IUI option, Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture are still a beneficial adjunct therapy simply because they encourage and support a healthier internal environment. This is always the best and strongest starting place.
