Where ancient wisdom meets modern science
According to Chinese Medicine, the most important time to boost fertility and optimize the health of your baby-to-be is during the 3-4 months before conception occurs. Western medicine now knows that the egg that is selected to ovulate each month is recruited at that particular time. It is during this crucial period that hormone levels and overall health affect the development and health of the potential egg and the thickness and receptivity of the uterine lining. That’s why in Chinese medicine we say the best way to achieve a healthy pregnancy and baby is to nourish the soil before you plant the seed.
Our preconception program uses a combination of herbal formulas, fertility acupuncture, diet therapy, lifestyle counseling, and relaxation techniques that are specifically design to balance your reproductive hormones and create the best possible environment for you egg to grow and develop. This also provides the optimum environment for fertilization, implantation, and the development of a healthy baby.
The preconception program offers you a natural way to optimize your fertility during the critical 4-6 months before conception.
Who is this preconception program for?
The preconception program is for women who:
- Are looking for a way to boost their fertility naturally
- Have been unsuccessful with IVF and want to try a natural alternative
- Want to ensure their body is in the best condition to conceive before trying IVF again.
If your fallopian tubes are intact and your partner's sperm is healthy -- read about male infertility -- then you might want to start with the preconception program and only use IVF if necessary. One of our highly trained practitioners will do an in-depth evaluation of you and your partner’s condition and create a personalized treatment plan based on your individual diagnosis.
What to look for in choosing a Reproductive Chinese Medicine specialist
It is important to ask whether the clinic or practitioner you are considering focuses their practice primarily on fertility and has had experience and additional training in Reproductive Chinese Medicine. You can go to the website of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine or Clinical Excellence in Fertility Professionals to find practitioners in your area who have been certified.
