Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
I cannot conceive, although doctors have found that I am in good health. Do you have any recommendations for herbal treatment that can help me conceive?
A: Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) are both helpful with fertility challenges. I suggest you contact a licensed TCM practitioner to discuss your specific case. Self-medication, even with herbs, is not recommended. The practitioner will be able to prescribe a specific formula that addresses your body’s unique needs. I also suggest that your husband get checked as well. Both of you should seek advice from a TCM practitioner regarding nutrition, lifestyle, and treatment options.
You may find these specially formulated Traditions of Tao herbal supplements helpful in improving your chances of conception: “Women’s Wellness”, “Enduring Youth”, “Yang Exhaustion”, “Passages Plus”, and “Feminine Desire”; for your husband, “Dragon Male”. Of course, discuss with your physician before beginning any new health regime.
