Chinese Herbs & Fertility
Chinese herbal medicine has been used traditionally for centuries in conjunction with acupuncture to help increase a woman's chance of conception.

TCM practitioners can use herbs to improve and restore overall health, thereby correcting the underlying issues that can contribute to gynecology and fertility issues. If there are blockages, such as cysts or fibroids, herbs can help to dissolve and clear them.

If there are functional or energetic issues, such as endometriosis or scarring, herbs can help to correct them. The endocrine system and hormone issues can be brought back into balance.


Compelling reasons and time tested benefits of including Chinese Herbal Therapy alongside acupuncture to address infertility include:

~ Herbs treat the root cause of the problem, not just the symptoms.

~ Side effects, such as those produced by medications or physically invasive procedures are reduced or eliminated with the use of herbal therapy.

~ Of course herbs can be combined with Western medical procedures, like IVF, to strengthen the body and help those techniques take hold.

  Herbal therapy and acupuncture can tap the body's innate and powerful healing potential by focusing on the patterns and causes of infertility naturally, safely, and effectively.

 

At CAMA we have a practitioner who uses high quality, targeted formulas to create individualized herbal protocols.

Carol's commitment to helping their patients achieve their dream of a family has motivated her study in reproductive science and its subsequent adaptation into Traditional Chinese Medical principles.

Each patient is evaluated from a holistic standpoint, and an individualized treatment strategy aimed at correcting their unique imbalances is drawn out. A tailored approach can be structured utilizing acupuncture as a standalone strategy or in conjunction with a reproductive medicine specialist, integrating acupuncture with IUI and IVF.

In either case positive results can be gained in promoting fertility, pregnancy care and postpartum recovery. She is dedicated to helping couples in their journey of successfully obtaining and maintaining a healthy pregnancy, and culminating in delivery of a healthy child.

Acupuncture is a process-oriented method of medical intervention. It is better to do more than less, and patients who are inconsistent with their treatment schedule are much less likely to see success.

Expect to be treated for three to four months before progressing to other medical options (IVF, or donor-egg transfer).


Studies suggest that women are encouraged to receive acupuncture treatments pre and post embryo transfer. Clinical observations from biomedical institutions suggest that the most effective fertility treatments involve a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, and traditional medicine. However, conception can occur when acupuncture and herbal medicines are used without biomedical interventions.

 

For heterosexual couples, male factor is involved in 60% of cases of infertility. Acupuncture treatment along with diet and lifestyle changes are important for both parents. The safety record of acupuncture, along with the fact that it does not involve drugs or surgery, provides you with an option that is 100% free of the side effects and risk potential of artificial reproductive treatments.

 

For women going through the ART process, the treatments in CAMA's quiet space are gentle and relaxing to receive, a lovely way to nurture your abilities of receptivity and responsiveness before your IVF.


There are minimal risks in using acupuncture for fertility treatment. Patients choosing to include acupuncture in their treatment regimen should only be treated by an acupuncturist who specializes in treating fertility disorders. Acupuncture is generally safe regardless of a person's medical history.

 

There are various acupuncture treatment options, for both female and male, depending on one's specific fertility needs. Treatment timing and frequency depends on a number of factors such as; where one is in the IVF cycle; preparing for embryo transfer; preparing for egg collection; if one has a history of miscarriage; the first weeks of pregnancy; labor preparation; deficient sperm motility; sperm donation, and so on.
