Chinese Medicine Fertility Treatments

Chinese Medicine Fertility Treatments

The decision to start a family is an exciting part of life, and is perhaps one of the biggest life decisions there is. In Canada, approximately 1 in 6 couples trying to conceive experience infertility. Both men and women can experience the reproductive issues, hormonal imbalances, or other reasons which cause the inability to conceive a child. Infertility, however, does not mean sterility. With the help of Traditional Chinese Medicine, those dealing with infertility issues can greatly improve their chances to conceive. Does one or more of the following statements apply to your situation?

Mai Pham is well versed in natural fertility treatments with the use of traditional acupuncture and Chinese medicinal herbs. Acupuncture helps to restore the energy meridians by placing a long, thin needle within these energy points. Acupuncture is not a painful treatment, as one may think when a needle is involved. Medical herbs are often given in conjunction with the acupuncture; custom Chinese medical herbs are prescribed, frequently in the form of tea. When the energy systems and body functions are restored, the chances of conception are increased.
