Fertility Treatments with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs


When you are on the long, hard journey to conceiving a baby, you search high and low for anything that can help. At Earley Wellness, we can support your fertility journey through acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). We are ready to support your fertility journey by designing an individualized plan which includes acupuncture and may also include the use of Chinese herbs. Your individual plan will also improve your fertility by including gentle lifestyle alterations like exercise, diet, reducing your stress, and improving your sleep.


It is believed that acupuncture increases the effectiveness of IVF and IUI treatments by:

  • Preparing the uterine lining for successful embryo implantation by increasing endometrial blood flow
  • Lowering elevated follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) levels
  • Regulating other hormones
  • Increasing egg quality and ovarian function
  • Reducing hormone treatment side effects

Acupuncture can improve the overall health of your reproductive system and normalize your menstrual cycle by relaxing the uterus. As a bonus side effect, this normalization also reduces the pain and discomfort of menstruation.

Men can also benefit from acupuncture treatments for fertility by increasing a prospective father’s fertility while reducing his stress. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs together can improve a man’s sperm quality, quantity and health over time, improving your chances of conception.

Chinese Herbs

When it comes to enhancing fertility with herbs, the claims and possibilities seem endless. At Earley Wellness we can help guide you to figure out which herbs might be most appropriate for your situation. There isn’t one supplement or herb that is going to be helpful for everyone when it comes to fertility. 

AMH: On your fertility journey, you are probably AMH. AMH is a hormone secreted by the ovarian follicles, so the higher your level, the more follicles (potential eggs) you’re expected to have. AMH testing is typically used as an indicator of your egg count. Chinese herbs and regular acupuncture can contribute to the improvement and some time reversal of your AMH test scores.

FSH: FSH stimulates the growth of ovarian follicles in your ovaries for ovulation. If your FSH is high this is often and indicator that your ovaries are not responding or not respond enough. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can reduce stress, and improve blood flow and nutrients to your ovaries.  Also acupuncture will lower your stress and potential your own bodies balance.  Many of my clients have improved FSH while under my care acupuncture and many times herbal care.

It is important to keep in mind when choosing herbs and supplements that you are purchasing high-quality and pure products. By working with the qualified professionals at Earley Wellness this will ensure that your herbs are pure and without additives or fillers.  The companies Deb selects meet 3 times the FDA standards for toxins and heavy metals.  She only provides certain herbal brand names, that adhere to high safety and processing standards.

In the end, the best way to aid you on your fertility journey is to maintain a balanced lifestyle – not fighting the laws of nature but being in tune with your body. A great way to do this is to practice grounding techniques that help you refocus on the present moment to distract yourself from the anxious feelings that often accompany those experiencing infertility.  This self-discovery journey you are on will help you live longer.
