What are the TCM treatment options for infertility in Singapore?
I would like to find out what are the different types of TCM treatments for infertility in Singapore?
Thanks for the D2D. Herbal medication and acupuncture are the two methods commonly used to treat infertility problem.
TCM Herbal prescription is customised according to individual’s body constitution. It consists of several herbs combined together to nourish and balance the body, especially the kidneys, spleen and liver which regulate the reproductive organs.
Acupuncture treatment which involves inserting needles at the acupoints along the meridians, regulates the flow of qi and blood and balance yin and yang in the body. It serves to tonify where there is deficiency, drain where there is excess, and promote free flow where there is stagnation.
Physician will monitor your progress, and modify the treatment according to how your body responds to the prescription or acupuncture. Dietary and lifestyle related advice will also be given to complement the course of treatment.
TCM treats holistically. Treatment does not only focus on a particular fertility-related problem, it also improves all systems of your body and mind.
If you sleep well, have good appetite and digestion, feel energetic and have a healthy sense of self, then all systems will work efficiently, including your reproductive system.
