Fertile Being

Experience your fertile potential through acupuncture, diet therapy, herbal medicine and supportive supplements.
Experience a flowing pain-free menstrual cycle and a greater readiness for pregnancy.

Are you trying to conceive but its taking longer than expected

When it doesn’t ‘just happen’, the journey towards falling pregnant can feel highly emotional and stressful. Holly, works with the benefits of acupuncture together with EFT (tapping) and transpersonal processes to support your fetility. In combination, they may optimise your chances at conceiving naturally while shifting those deepest feelings of fear, doubts, stress and overwhelm that can arise along the way.

‘Women described the experience and impact of acupuncture as positive relating to a sense of relaxation and time out, the engagement with the practitioner, and an intervention that had very few negative side-effects. Changes were also perceived after treatment with women describing a physical and psychologic sense of relaxation and calmness, and a changed perspective in relation to coping.

 In Australia, 15% or 3 million couples currently deal with impaired fertility, which might be related to male or female factors or remains ‘unexplained’ in 28% of cases [45]

Do you want to improve your chances of experiencing a natural conception or enhance the outcomes of your fertility treatments?

Even though infertility is affecting more and more couples and issues vary. Perhaps you are experiencing difficulty conceiving or suffering recurrent miscarriages. The truth is that very few women are actually clinically infertile. Most women and partners are simply not physically and emotionally in full reproductive balance.

Do you…

– Experience PMS and painful periods?

– Have a regular cycle?

– Clearly know when you’re ovulating?

The ins and outs of optimal natural fertility

  • When in good health there will be no premenstrual symptoms (PMS, bloating, breast tenderness or period pain) or mid-cycle spotting. i.e. regular cycle is between 28 to 30 day cycle with a bleed of 3-5 days no clots
  • Cervical mucous is extremely important as it aids the sperm to swim into the fallopian tubes. It’s produced a few days before ovulation so the sperm can be waiting within the fallopian tube when the egg is released. Without it, the sperm will die before arriving at their destination.
  • Ovulation occurring between days 13-15 is optimal.
  • In TCM, we understand that the menstrual bleeding reflects the quality of the uterine lining. The lining appears to be important for implantation, especially in relation to IVF failure or recurrent miscarriage.
  • TCM aims to increase the thickness and quality of this lining. It does this through promoting corpus luteal function (which in turn produces progesterone) and through its documented action of increasing blood flow to the uterus (Human Reproduction 11:1314-1317).
  • Ideally, it is expected that a woman will experience menstrual bleeding for at least 3 to 5 days – fresh red blood with no clots.
  • Enhancing egg development
  • Genetic material for a woman’s eggs are created when the woman is herself an embryo, the process of the egg maturing comes under the influence of her hormones. Clinically, it also appears possible to influence the integrity of the eggs released following acupuncture treatment. This may be due to increasing the blood supply to the developing follicles or by increasing the nutritional supply to the egg via the fluids that surround and nourish it.
  • Improving sperm quality
Get into the best possible state of pre-conception health.

The New England Journal recommend couples use acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine for pre-conception care, to boost your wellbeing and lay a good foundation for a healthy and problem-free pregnancy. (New England Journal of Medicine 345(19):1388-1393)

Allow 6 months…

Of course you want to be in the best state you can be to conceive to welcome a smooth pregnancy, healthy baby and the energy required for post natal recovery and parenthood.

Even if your biological clock is ticking or your egg reserve is “running low” it is still important to improve your foundational fertility and general health before commencing IVF. Acupuncture in combination with Herbal medicine can help to improve egg reserve and invigorate the reproductive system, making your IVF attempt more likely to succeed. To get optimal outcomes, it’s important to get into a greater state of flow and balance in your being to support your innate fertile potential. It is recommended that the greatest outcomes are achieved when both partners attend treatments. Even if the sperm count is deemed adequate, it’s important to acknowledge the following research outcomes:

Normal sperm count values are currently given as:

• greater than 20 million sperm per ml
• greater than 50% of sperm moving vigorously (motility)
• greater than 14 % with no deformities (morphology).

A population study looking at men’s fertility found that those men that succeeded in fathering a child had:

• greater than 48 million sperm per ml
• a motility of more than 63%
• a normal morphology of 12%
