Natural Fertility Enhancement Treatment
Chinese medicine stimulates the body’s natural healing potential by treating the root cause rather than just symptoms. It minimizes undesired side effects and accumulated toxicity from invasive procedures and drug therapies; strengthens and balances one's general health so that IVF, GIFT, ZIFT, ICSI, AHT and TET procedures are more effective. Pregnancy also becomes easier to achieve as the patient is deriving general health benefits (source: Dr Roger Hirsh OMD, Lac). We treat infertility with acupuncture, meridian massage, herbs and food as medicine; the following Ping’s treatments, remedies and foods enhance fertility for both women and men:
Acupuncture, Meridians massage and Cupping: Improve circulation, reduce inflammations, relax muscles, decrease stress, rebalance hormones and strengthen the self-healing power. We have treated fertility cases for the past 20 years, many women had babies after treatments. Some women were over age 40, they had a baby with IVF and acupuncture treatments. After fertility treatments pregnancy rate is over 60% at our clinic.
