Chinese Fertility Herbs
1. TCM Diagnosis and Your Herbal Prescription
Herbal formulas and products are created to correct imbalances within the body based on classical Chinese Medical theories of how each system within the body functions. The first thing we will do is review your past and present health as seen through this theory.
You will fill out a very extensive health history questionnaire. From this information Patricia your Chinese herbalist will determine your traditional diagnosis which your custom herbal prescription will be based on.
2. Chinese Herbs and Infertility
The Chinese herbs that Patricia use have a long history of use in aiding fertility. Records indicating herbal treatment and products for infertility and miscarriage date back to 200 A.D., including mention of formulas that are still used for those purposes today, in the famous Shang Han Lun. The first book devoted solely to gynecology and obstetrics, The Complete Book of Effective Prescriptions for Diseases of Women, was published in 1237 A.D.
In modern China, herbs are used to treat infertility in both men and women and the results of large scale clinical trials are reported in Chinese medical journals; these results have been abstracted in English by a research group in Hong Kong since 1986.
