The combination of Western technology and Traditional Chinese Medicine has been highlighted in recent years with national media exposure by news reports and various TV shows. The combination of the two forms of medicine has helped many people to bring home happy healthy babies.
Because of the rapid changes in assisted reproductive technologies (ART) in Western medicine, it is important to finda practitioner who has experience in this field in order to give you the best possible care. Even though ART is not a ‘traditional’ type of Chinese medicine therapy, the two work symbiotically together in order to give patients the best possible outcome.
ART procedures include techniques like in-vitro fertilization (IVF), intra-uterine insemination (IUI), and other drug therapies. When used alone, ART in the Western world averages, on the whole, about a 25% success rate. With some procedures costing around $15,000, we want to help patients increase their chances to take home a healthy baby on the first round.
One study that was conducted in Italy demonstrated an increase from the 25% success rate to about 65% when combining the two therapies. Of course, everyone’s situation is unique and everyone’s results can vary, but when you look at the potential cost savings and increased chances for success, then many find that the combination is an exciting option to growing a family.
