Traditional Chinese Medicine
In traditional Chinese medicine, the kidney system controls the reproductive system. Therefore, infertility is treated by rebalancing the flow of the body's energizing life force, or qi, through the kidney meridian. For example, a treatment for men with abnormal semen is Ju Jing Powder, which combines nine herbs and other substances including radix rehmanniae, fructus lycii, and radix polygoni multiflori. The mixture made into a decoction to drink, is formulated depending on the exact problem with the semen. So, if the sperm swim slower than normal, the therapy includes more ingredients that warm and supplement qi. Typically, acupuncture, moxibustion, and dietary changes are also part of the treatment.
Extensive research has been done in China on the treatment of infertility. Western medicine lacks cost-effective treatments for immunologically based infertility, the type of infertility studied in the following trial. In the trial, male infertility was due to autoimmune attack against sperm.
A study of immunological male infertility by Chen Xiaoping used the traditional remedy Zhibai Dihuang Wan. A control group received cortisone and vitamin C. In the herbal treatment group, autoimmunity measures decreased, sperm became more viable, and 80 percent of wives became pregnant within six months. In the control group, 46 percent of wives became pregnant.
