Traditional Chinese Medicine Female and Male Fertility Clinic in Brisbane
Fertility requires balanced hormones, structurally sound reproductive organs, good health and a nutritious diet. Even with these conditions being met, the chances of a healthy couple conceiving each month are just 25%.
A couple is considered infertile if they have not conceived after one year of having unprotected sex. Infertility is an increasing problem, particularly in Australia where one in six couples are diagnosed as infertile. In about 10% of these cases the exact reason is unknown. In other cases, either the female or the male has a reproductive problem, or both partners can be infertile.
At East West Fertility we have over 30 years’ experience in using Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, and nutritional supplementation as adjunct treatments within a holistic treatment regimen to assist couples to navigate their way through the process of conception.
East West Fertility care for each partner in the couple, not just one or the other, from the pre-conception stage to postpartum care and support. Our treatments can include acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Supplements along with recommended dietary and lifestyle changes.
Many health practitioners may recommend Traditional Chinese Medicine to couples who are experiencing infertility and may be seeking to learn more about how Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, including Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine can assist them to treat the symptoms and issues related to their infertility or IVF journey.
There is continuing research about how Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine can assist with infertility issues and increase the effectiveness of IVF treatments and patients must consult with their treating practitioners before undergoing any adjunct regimen of treatment when on this path.
Chinese Medicine views fertility as a balanced reproductive system that produces fluctuations in the Yin and Yang. For the reproductive system to function at its peak there must also be balance in all body systems. Regular Acupuncture, Herbs and Supplements aims to help you reach that balance.
