Male Factor Infertility
When patients come to Eastern Bench for fertility treatment we always ask if they or their partner, if they have one, has had a semen analysis. Infertility is often associated with a problem with the woman, and most women that come in for treatment assume that it’s their issue and are surprised to find out that 50% of couples struggling to conceive have male factor involved.
Male factor infertility can result from abnormalities in the sperm that include:
- Low sperm count
- Low motility
- Poor morphology
- Sperm DNA fragmentation
Traditional Chinese Medicine has been very effective in resolving all of these issues. Studies have been done that show acupuncture, herbs, and proper nutrition improve sperm count, morphology, motility and fragmented sperm DNA.
We recommend to all our male infertility patients to avoid environmental toxins especially synthetic estrogens, commonly found in beef and dairy products. They are even found in poultry and eggs. Buy hormone-free meats and dairy products. Some reports indicate the presence of synthetic estrogen in sources of drinking water. Therefore, filtered or purified water is highly encouraged.
We also recommend eating only organic fruits and vegetables, as pesticides and other chemicals found in non-organic produce hinder sperm production.
Take measures to keep the scrotum cool, ideally between 94 and 96 degrees fahrenheit. Men with slight varicoceles, are encouraged to use cool packs daily on the testicles.
Avoid saturated fats, hydrogenated oils, coconut, palm and especially cottonseed oil (contains gossypol which inhibits sperm formation).
Include polyunsaturated oils and essential fatty acids.
Other conditions we treat:
