Infertility Treatment Package in ReLife

1217Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners usually advise infertility patients to try natural therapies first before considering the more invasive options. The wonderful thing about traditional Chinese medicine and stem cell therapy is that these two approaches stimulate the body’s own natural capacity to conceive. Natural conception and improving success rate of IVF are what ReLife is trying to achieve for our patients. Therefore, “ReLife” is proud to offer an infertility treatment package.

Chinese Medicine for Infertility
As China’s proud and essence, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been practiced in China for 2000 to 3000 years, and has formed its unique system to diagnose and treat both male and female infertility. TCM methods include acupuncture, herbal medicine formula, moxibustion, cupping, Tui Na, etc.
Due to the effectiveness of TCM methods, Chinese has the lowest infertility rate in the world, less than 3%, while infertility rates in some countries are very high, some even up to 15%-17%. What could make this kind of difference? For one, Chinese medicine works on patient’s state of health holistically, improving the body’s immune system and adjusting body functions back to normal. For the other, a personalized treatment plan is always established for individual patients. According to different causes and symptoms, TCM doctors select different herbal medicine and different acupuncture points to address problems.

Advantages
“Research Indicates That Chinese Herbal Medicine may be twice as Effective for Infertility as Conventional Therapies”

* Chinese Herbal Formulas (unique formulas for different people) alone demonstrated 60% effectiveness for pregnancy or increased fertility.
* Western fertility Drugs in the same study demonstrated 30% effectiveness.
* Chinese Medicine combined with Western Medical Medicine resulted in 3.5 times better odds for conceiving.

Stem cell therapy combining with TCM for female infertility

At ReLife International Medical Center, besides the application of TCM in treating many kinds of infertility, stem cell therapy, this advanced technology, is also administered to address some complicated cases.

Why use stem cell therapy for infertility treatment?

Mesenchymal stem cell(MSC) therapy, either autologous or allogenic, is proved to be effective to address infertility. MSC has the characteristics of multi-directional differentiation potential, especially can differentiate into the damaged cells. By producing a variety of factors and enzymes to promote cell regeneration, the MSCs being injected into blood can locate into the impaired parts and repair the damaged cells and gradually restore the original reproductive function. At ReLife, allogenic mesenchymal stem cells are derived from umbilical cord tissue, while autologous mesenchymal stem cells are derived from patient’s own body tissue.
However, stem cell therapy applied alone is not that ideal as expected in treating infertility. When combined with TCM methods, the treatment effects of this combination are found to be much better than that of stem cell therapy alone. And compared with TCM treatment, this combination could shorten patient’s recovery period. This combination is designed by ReLife’s TCM doctors collaborating with western medicine doctors. Comprehensive TCM methods, such as herbal medicine, acupuncture, Tui Na, etc. acting as supportive treatment, restore body’s Yin and Yang balance and thus prepare a better inner environment for the coming stem cells to survive and differentiate in the body. After the stem cell transplantation, we continually use TCM methods to create a synergy with stem cell therapy. In this way, the survival rate of stem cells injected into the body is improved substantially.
