Can we use Chinese herbs to treat infertility in both men and women?
Chinese herbs are effective for addressing imbalances resulting in infertility problems in both men and women.
What specific herbs are in the herbal formulas?
No individual herb is considered especially useful for promoting fertility or working with any other complicated disorder. Rather, more then 150 different herbs given in complex formulas comprised of 7 to15 or more ingredients are used in the treatment of infertility. Each formula is created with the purpose of correcting a functional or organic problem that are causing your problem.
The design of the formulas has varied somewhat over the centuries, based on prevailing theories and available resources. However, differences among individuals being treated accounts for the greatest variations in the selection of herbs and formulas to be used.
There are some “exotic” materials that are frequently found in Chinese herbal formulas, such as deer antler and sea horse, but the prominent materials are derived from roots, barks, leaves, flowers, and fruits. No endangered or protected species are ever used my Patricia Karnowski MSOM.
Formulas for men and for women tend to be different, but there is considerable overlap in the ingredients used.
How long do I have to take the herbs?
The length of time you will need to take the herbs will depend on how severe your condition is and how long you have had the problem and your overall health. Your ability to consistently take your herbal formula and modify your lifestyle where needed will also impact how long you need to take your herbs to see the results you would like.
With regards to fertility, it must be remembered, however, that approximately one-third of infertility cases may fail to respond to all reasonable attempts.
One advantage of the Chinese herbal approach is that benefits to health can be attained because the herbs address imbalances that affect your overall health.
