  • Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) - Twice as effective!

    According to a review in the Complementary Therapies in Medicine journal, women treated with traditional Chinese medicine were twice more likely to conceive in a 4-month period than those on IVF or Western fertility drugs.

    Since ancient times, the Chinese have used herbs to nourish the body, strengthen the ‘qi’ energy and restore balance within the organ systems for optimal health. If you are suffering from infertility – men or women – restoring your body with TCM may be highly beneficial and can even boost your general health.

    Determining your fertile window

    Timing is a crucial element to couples planning for a child. Every woman’s fertile window is different but don’t worry, here are some tips on how to find your fertile window based on your menstrual cycle.

    Ovulation typically happens 2 weeks before your next period. If your period arrives regularly, you can accurately predict your ovulation period.

    About 6 days before your ovulation is the optimum timeframe to begin trying for a baby. There is 27-33% chance of pregnancy in the 3 days before ovulation and during ovulation.

    During ovulation, vaginal mucus usually becomes slippery and clear.

    The Holistic Approach

    Unlike western medication, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) isn’t a one-off solution that suppresses infertility symptoms and tries to stimulate conception. Instead, it addresses health problems in a holistic approach by finding the underlying issues within your body and treating the root causes behind the symptoms.

    Herbs are often not used singly as they may not achieve the desired effects or may be unsuitable for certain individuals. That’s why TCM emphasises the use of a synergistic combination of herbs that have been perfected over time with health benefits proven through usage.

    Not only can this holistic approach address infertility issues, it can also nourish and enhance the kidney, liver, endocrine and reproductive systems and alleviate other physiological symptoms and discomforts associated with feminine health and male vitality.
