Acupuncture and Fertility
Acupuncture and Herbs have been used to treat infertility for thousands of years. In Chinese culture, there exist activities the mother should partake in order to ensure the health of the fetus. In recent years, western medicine has begun to embrace Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as a successful treatment or adjunctive treatment for infertility and its associated gynecological issues. Many studies currently support how TCM greatly improves fertility.
