Case Study: Unexplained infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss

A 35-year-old female came to ilumina with a history of 3 miscarriages. She had tried Clomid twice in the past and wanted to use Chinese medicine to conceive without ART as well as decrease her risk of another miscarriage. Her RE&I doctor suggested IVF but she was not ready.

Chinese medicine treatment:

Weekly acupuncture, individualized Chinese herbal medicine rotating throughout her menstrual cycle, Chinese medicine based dietary changes and neutraceuticals.


Pregnancy achieved on her third cycle of treatment without ART. Treatment continued throughout pregnancy. Miscarriage prevented and she had a healthy baby.

This patient returned a year later wanting to have another baby. She conceived the first cycle of Chinese medicine treatment which continued throughout pregnancy. Again no miscarriage and she had a healthy baby.
