This book covers acupuncture and Chinese medicine protocols for each stage of the in vitro fertilization (IVF) process.
Research has shown that acupuncture alone can increase the success rate of IVF by 35%.
By also adding Chinese herbal medicine, it is Dr. Liang's experience that you can almost double that increase. Dr. Liang provides an overview of Chinese medicine and the pathology of infertility, procedures of in vitro fertilization, and step-by-step protocols for combining acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine both prior to in vitro procedures and during in vitro fertilization.
It also includes a detailed discussion of commonly used IVF drugs, protocols for preventing miscarriages, and numerous case studies. Appendices cover recent acupuncture and IVF research, western fertility drugs, and Chinese medicinals.
