The six morefertile® ‘fertility types’ are based on the Chinese medicine concept that fertility is linked to general health and wellbeing, and that many health conditions have “patterns” to them which can improve with treatment or changes to diet and lifestyle. Chinese medicine is well proven and has been practiced continuously for thousands of years and is excellent at supporting health and raising fertility, which is why it’s an integral part of fertility treatment in clinics all over the world.
The healthiest people are usually the most fertile, and our fertility ‘types’ describe six patterns of “imbalance” away from optimum health known to reduce fertility. They recognise people can face very different challenges to getting pregnant, and by detecting your key patterns away from “most fertile” its possible to give you specific advice on how to become “more fertile”. To do this we’ve developed the unique morefertile® Types Analyses for both sexes, and their names simply reflect how people look or feel:
Having an idea about the most important issues affecting your fertility means you can make informed decisions and positive changes that match your personal needs, rather than simply following the latest fads or someone else’s experience. The morefertile® advice covers diet (with recipe books), lifestyle, and treatments and tests that may apply to you. We believe knowing your ‘type’ transforms a potentially overwhelming subject into a simpler, practical plan that addresses your core fertility issues.
We’re simply not all the same; women with low ovarian reserve face a different journey to improve their chances of conceiving than women with endometriosis or PCOS. They need different lifestyle changes or treatments, and the wrong approach won’t help them. The way to successfully raise fertility is to recognise your situation (with tests and our analysis), then focus on improving your health with treatments, diets or lifestyle changes that meet your needs.
morefertile® integrates Western medicine, Nutrition and Chinese medicine, and we’ve researched them all. Western medicine is amazing at diagnosing and treating clear problems, Nutrition is essential for health to flourish, and Chinese medicine is brilliant at adjusting body systems to raise fertility; a large study into Chinese herbal medicine for infertility concluded:i
‘the odds of achieving pregnancy with Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM) are about three times greater than with conventional Western medicine treatment using standard medication or IVF’
‘The fundamental principle of Traditional Chinese medicine therapy is to restore balance within the body, which affects [the] hormonal regulation of the menstrual cycle, and provides a physiological environment to facilitate conception, implantation, and maintenance of a viable pregnancy.’
The morefertile approach promotes:
- Higher pregnancy rates
- Shorter times to get pregnant
- Better health
- Less emotional and financial stress on couples trying for a baby
In China the infertility rates are about half those in the West, and Chinese medicine has different diagnostic frameworks and treatments that raise health and fertility together. We hope morefertile® gives insights into health generally, as well as on raising fertility, so please join us, discover your ‘fertility type’ and take the first step to maximising your fertility.
