A new study published by The University of Adelaide in South Australia found that “Chinese Herbal Medicine can improve pregnancy rates 2-fold within a 4 month period compared with Western Medical fertility drug therapy or IVF.”
The university analyzed research studying 1,851 women with infertility. They compared women that received Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with those that received Western drug therapy alone. Those that received TCM showed a pregnancy rate of 60% within a four-month period compared with the 30% undergoing IVF.
The authors of the study noted that, “Assessment of the quality of the menstrual cycle, integral to TCM diagnosis, appears to be fundamental to successful treatment of female infertility.”
Acupuncture, herbal medicine, and other modalities can restore balance and harmonize the whole body, allowing women to conceive naturally without costly or invasive treatments. If women are undergoing IVF, Chinese medicine can support and strengthen the body and alleviate stress, augmenting any therapeutic process.
