Medical Herbalism is one of the oldest systems of medicine in the world.
Herbalists are primarily concerned with establishing and eradicating the cause of ill health through holistic treatment of the individual. Herbalists use whole plant extracts and believe that by using plants in their natural form, many of the side effects associated with modern medicine can be avoided.
Herbal Medicine has long been used in the treatment of fertility issues and can be very effective in helping to regulate hormonal imbalances which can, in turn, lead to conditions such as:
- Polycystic overies
- heavy and irregular menstruation
Herbs are used to help with issues of low sperm count or low sperm motility.
Herbs act to support the whole body and a herbalist will work with you to improve your general health as a first step to conceiving. Herbs work to nourish and heal the reproductive system, enabling it to work more effectively. Herbal medicines are usually taken in the form of tinctures, tablets or capsules, as well as herbal teas and must be taken on a regular basis to be useful. This is a gentle and non invasive way to approach issues with fertility and you should allow several months before you see noticeable progress.
