Natural Fertility and IVF Support

Natural FertlitySometimes, a couple may find it difficult to conceive.  There are many reasons for this.  While some reasons may include low ovarian function or sperm vitality, high stress levels, gynecological conditions such as endometriosis or polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), other reasons maybe unexplained.

Fertility problems appear to be on the increase in the last 2 decades, with up to 25 per cent of couples experiencing difficulties in conceiving.   Increasingly, couples having difficulty conceiving turn to expensive medical assistance in order to conceive.

However, science is not always able to efficiently treat the “unexplained” cases where there is obviously a deeper problem at hand. This is where natural approaches such as herbal medicine and acupuncture may be useful, without the side effects of certain drugs and medications.

Research studies show that both acupuncture and herbal medicine have been effective in supporting individuals and couples trying to fall pregnant.    These treatments will provide an holistic response to address a range of issues that may be getting in the way of you falling pregnant.  Some of the added benefits may include include weight loss, improved immunity function, anxiety and insomnia.  Acupuncture can also assist in improving sperm quality, so some men choose to have acupuncture around the same time that their partners are ovulating.
