Elaine Cook Acupuncture & Fertility

Chinese medicine has a long established tradition in treating gynaecological disorders, women's hormonal imbalances, male infertility, stress and unexplained infertility. In Chinese medicine, the flow of energy (Qi) and blood, leading to smooth functioning of organs is paramount to health. Imbalances in any system can be inherited or acquired, and it is the acupuncturist's job to establish where and why these are occurring. Acupuncture aims always to restore balance, so that the systems in the body work smoothly.

When harmony is restored, then conception is more likely. Chinese Herbal Medicine can be used alone or in conjunction with Acupuncture. Herbs are particularly useful for women with fertility issues, as prescriptions can be tailor made for each phase of the cycle according to the individual hormonal imbalances. The herbs are plant based and can be taken as powders stirred into hot water or as capsules. They are safe and convenient to take.
