Fertility and Traditional Chinese Medicine

If you’re struggling with fertility traditional Chinese medicine can be a great alternative to increase chances of pregnancy. TCM’s understanding of infertility is all down to the body’s balance or imbalance and whether the body’s mechanisms are working properly. There are so many reasons why couples struggle with fertility and it’s my job to figure out what’s inhibiting your conception.

For assessment I will ask you a series of questions regarding your health digging into reasons why you may be facing difficulty conceiving. In TCM, your symptoms can tell me a lot about the condition of your body.

To further help with properly diagnosing you I will take your pulse and observe your tongue for further clues. In Chinese medicine the pulse and tongue can tell me the general state of your health and the conditions of your organs, qi, blood, yin and yang.

From there we will discuss my findings and I will suggest a series of dietary and lifestyle changes you may need to correct in order to address the root cause of the problem.

We will then work to correct the body’s imbalance with acupuncture, cupping and herbal remedies. Insertion of fine needles can either boost the functions of the organs or break up stagnant qi and blood to support free flow so your body can work harmoniously to achieve conception.
