What should I know about infertility?

Infertility or reproductive problems are often treatable. Most people aren’t aware that male infertility is as common as female infertility. Causes of infertility include certain diseases and aging. However, infertility treatment with infertility drugs and high-tech procedures gives many women the chance to have a baby.

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, more than 106,000 Americans die per year due to the proper use of prescription medications, which emphasizes the value of natural, drug-free therapies. With regard to infertility, studies in the U.S. and abroad are showing promising results for the use of acupuncture and Oriental medicine in dealing with reproductive health matters. It's being shown to be safe, effective and non-invasive compared to standard medical approaches. Ask your doctor for more information.
