For decades herbs have been used as a form of infertility treatment. In fact, the first formal study of herbs for infertility treatment was conducted in China as far back as 1237 A. D and since then millions of infertility sufferers have benefited from this ancient knowledge.
Unfortunately, despite the fact that many have benefited from using herbs for the treatment of infertility, many others simply would not accept the idea of using strange leaves and other plant species for a condition like infertility. But I think using herbs for infertility treatment is something that deserves its rightful position in the world of medical practice today.
For example, as at the moment, there are well over 150 recognized herbs for curing infertility around the world. Most of these have actually been transformed into tablets, pills, powders, etc. With so many different herbs in use for infertility treatment, it is definitely impossible that an infertile person will not respond to one. It is true that only a few of these herbs have the therapeutic value as approved by the drugs authority and the medical circles but that does not take away their effectiveness. In fact, the medical community is now accepting most of these herbs and other alternative medicines in conjunction with the western approach as a balance in treating infertility.
It may interest to know that two of the commonly used herbs as cure for infertility are the Xi Xian Cao (Siegesbeckia) and Yi Mu Cao (Leonurus). During a recent study in China, these two herbs when combined have the power to induce the effect of releasing the blockage in the fallopian tube, which is a major problem among infertile women.
A blockage in the fallopian tube may be as a result of some form of infection or inflammation, scar, excess mucous and thickening of the tissue that lines the tubes. During the study it was observed that women who were put into experimentation responded favorably within 10 days. This is really surprising because such result is not realizable, not even with the highest of the technologies that we employ here in the west.
Besides herbs for infertility, other essential oils may also prove helpful when undergoing alternative treatment along with the use of acupuncture. In fact, some authorities agree that acupuncture is enough to cure the cause of the infertility. However, to be safe let us presume that we need to use other techniques to benefit from the results.
It is understandable that with our level of advancement today, beliefs such as energies, bad spirits and the likes may not be readily acceptable in the treatment of infertility. However, that is the simple reason why they are right called alternatives. But the matter of fact is, you need not believe in their underlying principles, you just have to have faith that they may help cure that infertile condition.
