Acupuncture and Chinese herbs have been proven to lower high FSH
- FSH- Follicle Stimulating Hormone is often used in combination with AMH – Anti Mullerian Hormone to measure ovarian reserve or how many eggs are being produced by the ovaries. In western medicine even one high FSH test can lead to a diagnosis of low ovarian reserve for life.
- In Chinese medicine we understand that the ovaries are affected by the state of health of the rest of the body. They have their ups and downs depending on the overall health of the body.
- As we get older, their is a general decline in ovarian function but this is not fixed and is not the same for everyone. Some women can have good ovarian function at 40 while others can have poor function at 34.
- In Chinese medicine we know that OVARIAN FUNCTION CAN BE CHANGED. Using acupuncture, herbs as well as changes in diet and life style we can improve ovarian function, lower FSH and give women a greater chance of getting pregnant whether by natural means or with IVF or IUI.
