Infertility is defined as not taking any contraceptive method for a year, having a normal sex life, and having no successful pregnancy.

Traditional Chinese medicine regards Infertility as a disorder or imbalance of qi and blood in Zang-fu(脏腑 internal organs), impure after menstruation, damp heat and uterus infection, and with a lack of positive energy.

Healside Clinic (Fertility Clinic) Treatment Plans

In TCM, the goals of the main treatments (Acupuncture & Herbal medicine) are kidney correction, tonic to improve blood circulation and blood stasis, fever clearing, and detoxification because most of the infertilities are caused by a disruption in vital balance and blockages along with the Qi energy system.

TCM, which stands for traditional Chinese medicine views every patient as unique and offers customized treatments based on their condition. TCM's high success rate with no side effects make it an attractive option in comparison to more mainstream Western Medicine practices that can cause unwanted nausea or vomiting from drugs. The use of acupuncture within this practice is not new; In fact, many studies have shown how effective these techniques are when treating infertility problems among other things.

With a combination of acupuncture and herbs, it is possible to improve ovarian function as well as the blood flow in your body. This will allow you to have more potential for conception and increase other treatments' success rates such as In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), sperm wash and insemination (IUI), Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and etc. We highly recommend that you have our treatment first before visiting western fertility clinics.
