A Traditional Chinese Medicine View of Immunological Infertility

The American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM)  has stated that Autoimmune disorders are implicated in reproductive disorders and may especially play a role in unexplained cases of infertility. It is known that autoimmune diseases such as diabetes, autoimmune thyroiditis and systemic lupus erythematosis are linked to decreased fertility.

Traditional Chinese Medicine, with its holistic viewpoint, though it does not mention “immunologic disorders” of course, covers a host of underlying conditions that result in infertility, and addresses what it calls the ‘imbalance’ that causes ‘disharmony’.*

In the 17 years of Patricia’s practice, she has successfully tackled hundreds of so-called cases of ‘unexplained infertility’ with her custom-made Chinese herbal formulas and she suspects many of these might well have been cases in which there was a then unknown ‘immunological factor’ at work. This factor was corrected when the underlying imbalance was removed!*

Immune factors do not always manifest as physical symptoms but sometimes the following symptoms may be noticed:

  • Frequent miscarriages in the very early weeks
  • Body aches before and during period
  • PMS (Pre-menstrual Syndrome)
  • Irritability and depressive episodes and /or panic attacks
  • Night sweats with sweating over the breast bone
  • Insomnia in the early mornings
  • Hormone levels show a decrease in the mid-cycle
  • Past history of hives or itchy skin
  • Thyroid disorders with the presence of anti-thyroid antibodies

Several studies are now emerging about the use of Chinese herbs in this type of infertility. www.pubmed.gov (a service of the US National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health) quotes the following article about the Chinese herb Zi yin jiang huo: “According to the microcosmic Syndrome Differentiation, immunological infertility is recognized as Kidney Yin Deficiency-Hyperactivity of Fire Syndrome. Zhi bai Di huang Pills, a recipe of Chinese medicinal herbs, was used to treat the infertile couples with anti-sperm and/or antizona pellucida antibodies in their blood serum. It was found that after the treatment, the antibodies were converted to negative in 81.3% of immunological infertile couples. All 8 cases of successful pregnancy occurred in 1-9 months after antibodies negative conversion and the negative status was maintained throughout the course of pregnancy.”

Natural Herb Treatment for Infertility Due to Autoimmune Disorders

 

There are now over ten thousand herbal substances documented in the Materia Medica, published by the Ministry of Health of China. They have been found through years of experimentation and usage to be effective for specific conditions.

A study of immunological male infertility by Chen Xiaoping used a traditional Chinese herbal formula. A control group received cortisone and vitamin C. In the herbal treatment group, autoimmunity measures decreased, sperm became more viable, and 80 percent of wives became pregnant within six months. In the control group, 46 percent of wives became pregnant.   Western medicine often makes use of the corticosteroid group of drugs, with all their attendant dangers and disadvantages, to treat immunologic infertility. This alone should encourage the use of Traditional Chinese herbal medicine.
