Gain a solid understanding of how to treat infertility with Chinese medicine

Written by experts in Chinese medicine, this textbook provides a comprehensive overview of Chinese medicine therapies for fertility disorders. It opens by reviewing the basics of current Western reproductive medicine in terms of diagnosis, treatment options, and possible risks. The book then introduces the reader to traditional Chinese fertility treatments, providing information about how they complement Western reproductive medicine. The authors describe in detail the different treatment methods, covering qi gong, tui na, moxibustion, acupuncture, Chinese dietetics, and medicinal therapy. The main section of the book provides in-depth discussions of specific fertility disorders and their management, including menstrual disorders, early menopause, sexual disorders, male infertility, endometriosis, and polycystic ovary syndrome. It closes with a section on patient support, addressing issues such as the mind-body relationship and the impact of stress.

Key features:

  • Case studies with real-life examples of specific treatment approaches
  • Information on both Chinese and Western therapies
  • Perspectives from numerous Chinese medicine specialists
  • Extensive quotations from classical texts in translation
  • Historical, cultural, and social perspectives on the issue of fertility in Chinese culture, modern and ancient
Chinese Medicine in Fertility Disorders is an invaluable resource for practitioners in complementary medicine, including acupuncturists and Chinese herbalists who wish to include fertility treatment in their practice, and a useful reference for all physicians who seek to expand their perspective on managing fertility issues.
