What is Considered in an Initial Fertility Chinese Medicine Consultation

A complete diagnosis is made according to the state of your qi and blood, whether you in deficiency or stagnation and then if you have any impacting factors such as heat, cold and dampness etc. Points are selected to rectify and adjust these imbalances along with complimentary modalities such as moxibustion, cupping or gua sha as needed and prescribed for the patient.

Chinese Herbs

Chinese herbal medicine is beneficial for fertility, pregnancy and women’s health. In most fertility cases, herbs are paramount as they provide the body with qi and blood, and can have functional actions to treat signs and symptoms that affect your fertility such as late ovulation, luteal phase defect, scanty periods (affecting the uterine lining). Usually with fertility we may need to clear old blood out of the body before we start townifying, the blood can stagnate as we age and due to other factors such as having a history of clotty periods, chronic health issues, emotional stress and taking medications or drugs.

Ilana is a registered and qualified Chinese Herbalist.
