Fertility Treatments

Our clinic treats couples who want to conceive naturally and we also help for those undergoing to have IUI or IVF treatments as well. We treat female infertility as well as male infertility.

Chinese medicine is safe, natural, & has no side effects. Traditional Chinese Medicine is a medical system that has enjoyed a 5OOO year history in China. It is based on the principle of balance which states: Health is a result of mind and body homeostasis; disease aris safe, natural, & has no side effects.ises due to hyper-functioning or hypo-functioning of the body systems which in turn causes or is the result of too much or too little substance. The objective of TCM is to return the body to its homeostatic state in which neither the function nor the substance is out of balance. TCM views infertility as a state of both weakened body and pathogenesis of the body. Infertility, therefore, is a condition of systemic imbalance and aging.

Working with Assisted Reproductive Technologies

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can be used solely or in conjunction with Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) and fertility drugs. Most patients use TCM as their primary treatment modalities in Asia. In the western clinical setting, it is not uncommon to see patients use TCM in conjunction with fertility drug and ART.

Benefits of TCM treatment

The following are some of the preliminary results from our clinic. We have found increased follicular development with some patients in an ART cycle with combination of TCM and fertility drugs especially in ones who were labeled as "poor responders". This can be seen in either an increased production of eggs in GIFT/IVF or increased fertilization rate in IVF. Patients who have thin endometrial lining during the usage of Clomiphene Citrate in an IUI cycle have found TCM helpful in reducing the thinning of the lining. We also have found some patients who have stopped ART due to symptoms of premature menopause as well as elevated FSH levels have "bounced" back with utilization of TCM. Most women with irregular menstruation or dysmenorrhea have found TCM to be helpful in managing symptoms as well as regulating the menstrual cycle. In the area of recurrent pregnancy loss, some patients were able to conceive again and were able to carry to term without any immunosuppressants. In male subfertility conditions, we have found some cases of improved semen analysis with the use of TCM for more than three months. Additional improvements can be seen in increased vitality and libido.

Chinese medicine treatment can improve chances of conception, increase the lining of the uterus, increase sperm count in males, increase the basal body temperature, regulate hormones, prevent miscarriage, bring on ovulation & much more. Acupuncture alone is not strong enough at this stage though when combined with Chinese medicine its effects are greatly enhanced.
