Herbs To Assist Natural Pregnancy

Traditional herbalist have been treating infertile couples for years around the world and have shown that a comprehensive overhaul of diet, lifestyle and general health, with a continuous input of supportive herbal medicine and ongoing monitoring throughout, can have a happy outcome in the shape of a healthy bouncing baby. Throughout the natural world food is medicine, and the same concept applies to herbs- the ultimate medicinal food.

Finding out that either you or your partner is infertile, or sub-fertile, can be a traumatic experience. One or both of you may experience feelings of blame, anger, denial, guilt, self-pity or jealously, this may place stress on your relationship.
Infertility is a common, devastating condition. It causes enormous heartache to those so effected. Treatment is often invasive and frequently stressful, time consuming and expensive.
Men are often shocked to discover that difficulties in having a baby are due to reproductive problems on the male side also.

It is estimated that in Australia, male infertility affects about one in every 20 men. Despite popular opinion that infertility is usually due to female (gynaecological) problems, in about one in five infertile couples, there are problems relating to the male.
Egg quality is the focus of most fertility treatments, yet a recent study found men over the age of 35 have sperm with DNA damage which may contribute to infertility and miscarriage.

A typical sperm analysis will look at:
• Total number of sperm per ejaculate (how many?)
• Sperm motility (how fast they swim)
• Sperm morphology (how good or bad they look)

When sperm morphology is less than 2% (which means just 2% are normal) the World Health Organization states men are infertile. In Australia men must have a minimum of 15% to be considered fertile.
Healthy robust fast swimming sperm are essential for conception, even couples undergoing IVF or ICSI procedures can improve embryo quality by good pre-conception sperm health care.

Chinese herbs and specific supplements target each aspect of sperm health. Chinese herbs have been shown to boost spermatogenesis (make sperm), increase motility (make sperm swim faster) and increase good morphology (make more healthy sperm).

Chinese herbs have a long history of use in aiding fertility. Records indicating herbal treatment of infertility and miscarriage date back to 200 A.D., including mention of formulas that are still used for those purposes today, in the famous medical text Shang Han Lun. No individual herb is considered especially useful for promoting fertility. Rather, more than 150 different herbs, usually given in complex formulas comprised of 15 or more ingredients, are used in the treatment of infertility with the purpose of correcting a functional or organic problem that caused infertility. The design of the formulas has varied somewhat over the centuries, based on prevailing theories and available resources.

Depending on the circumstances, one may be asked to ingest herbs in the form of pills, tablets, granules, or decoctions (herbal teas). Some of the treatment plans involve using a single herb combination regularly, while others suggest using two, or even three, different formulas at different times of the menstrual cycle.Herbal tea, is a great way to improve your overall health and well-being for a natural pregnancy.

Common effects of the Chinese herbs that many women report are increased fertile mucus, elevated basal body temperatures during the luteal phase, heightened libido and an improved sense of well being and energy.

Both men and women are treated with herbs that nourish the reproductive system and improve fertility. A healthy body is a fertile body.
