It eventually happens to almost every group of friends. Unfortunately, almost every group of friends also has a couple that doesn’t have kids at the same time as everyone else. In some cases, this is intentional. In others they are fighting infertility, trying one method of fertility enhancement after another in an attempt to start their own family.
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine approaches fertility enhancement the same way it approaches any other aspect of health: body, mind, and spirit. It also starts long before active attempts at pregnancy. From acupuncture and herbal medicine, to diet and exercise, Traditional Chinese Medicine has methods to help prepare a woman’s body for pregnancy. Modern Western medicine focuses on a shorter term, and the actual fertility of a woman while trying to get pregnant.
That’s not to say there is no attention placed on more immediate fertility results in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture and herbal remedies are key component of increasing fertility in both men and women in the practice. An acupuncturist will happily work with a fertility specialist practicing more modern methods of fertility enhancement.
In Boulder, CO, as with the rest of the United States, most people seeking fertility enhancement through Traditional Chinese Medicine have gone through a barrage of tests resulting in a medical diagnosis from Western Medicine. They are often looking for methods to help make the Western treatment as effective as possible. Any diagnosis going in will help guide the treatments given by Traditional Chinese Medical methods.
Western Medicine failing to provide an explanation for infertility is another reason many seek out Traditional Chinese Medicine. Often times the whole body, mind, and soul approach will find problems that can be cleared up with acupuncture, herbs, and dietary changes.

Acupuncture therapy, and other Traditional Chinese Medicine methods, are not only for a woman trying to get pregnant either. Male infertility is just as prevalent as female infertility. There are treatments that help increase not only a male’s counts, but also their viability.
