There is a new trend in our society in which us women are delaying childbirth and waiting longer to start our families. As a result of this fact, an increasing number of women over the age of 35 are now realizing having a baby is not as easy as they thought it would be.
After more than 1 year of trying to conceive, many women find they are dealing with infertility issues and are now seeking professional help and looking to available assisted reproductive technologies. These methods can be extremely costly, invasive, and are not guaranteed to work, although some women have great results.
For others dealing with infertility issues, they prefer to try the more gentle natural route of herbal therapy and healthy diet.
Herbs for infertility have been used by the eastern civilizations for thousands of years. Herbs for infertility address underlying imbalances which are produced by our polluted environment, processed foods, pesticides and unhealthy lifestyles to name a few.
Herbal therapy promotes hormone balance, improves sperm and egg quality, regulates the menstrual cycle, enhances secretions, tones the uterus, nourishes the endometrial lining and maintains a healthy pregnancy.
In the treatment of infertility, herbs are used to promote optimal fertility health.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM herbal therapy) generally uses combinations of herbs to get optimal results. The combination of different herbs in a fertility formula can be made into teas, pills, powders, or even added to delicious recipes. Herbal therapy combined with fertility foods and healthy lifestyle living has enabled women over the centuries to get pregnant and start the family they've been dreaming of!
Chinese herbs offered to women suffering from infertility include dong quai, chaste tree, damiana, ginseng and hachimijiogan. Keep in mind these herbs are extremely powerful and may be harmful or even fatal if taken in inadequate quantities. A herbalist who has extensive training or a professional who is experienced with herbal therapy should always be consulted.
Many women over 35 experiencing infertility issues have a great success with herbal therapy. They were able to treat their infertility effectively with fewer side effects that result with modern-day fertility drugs.

Herbs for infertility can provide your body with exactly what is needs to make your conceiving and pregnancy safe, natural and fun!
