Holistic approach – individual treatment

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine as treatment options in Chinese Medicine are individually customized to each patient, because each has its own cause of infertility. Consequently, it is a unique therapy that is customized for each single patient.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and IVF

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a form of therapy that can support the desired result in a natural, pleasant and personal way. TCM is also used as a supplement to In-Vitro-Fertilization (IVF) to improve the conditions and to help the patient during this process.

What do you need to consider before IVF?

Before planned IVF it is recommended you start at least 3 months in advance with Acupuncture and/or Chinese Herbal Medicine. During this period, the functions of the ovaries and the immune system are regulated. The quality and quantity of sperm can be also improved. Often a normal function of the menstrual cycle can be regulated during this time, so that the woman might get pregnant naturally without having IVF.
