What do patents say about us ?

‘I am very pleased with the improvements. I feel much better. The hot flushes are gone. I have more energy and I am more alert.’

Florence is 39. When she first came to us in November 2018, her FSH was 23.9, Oestradiol below 44, AMH 0.8. After 3 months of treatment, she tested her hormones again early February 2019. Her FSH is 17.2, Oestradiol 66 and AMH 1.3.

‘My experience has been amazing! I came to see prof shun in April 2018. My hormone levels were very high and at post menopausal stage, even though I was still seeing my period. My FSH was at 30 and my LH was at 14.9 whilst my AMH was less than 1.
I started a 4 month tailored powdered herbal protocol with monthly visits to monitor and track my progress. In the first couple of months; I noticed an improvement in the quality of my period and blood flow. I continued to take the herbs twice daily whilst cleansing my diet and sticking to healthy meal plans
I returned in Aug 2018 to carry out another hormone tests and I was astounded!!!!!
FSH- 12.5
LH- 7.5
If anyone had told me that this was possible, I would have been sceptical: I am 46 years old and I am encouraged to try naturally!Thank you so much TCM for your kindness and what you do everyday!
My hope is that I can walk into the clinic in the not too distant future with my bundle of joy!
Forever grateful
Nikky from London

NIkky is 46 and came to us in April 2018. She was told egg donor is the only option. After significant improvement in FSH, she is now on our natural pregnancy programme. She also wrote a Google review.

‘Dear Professor Au, I have just found out today that I am pregnant! I’m obviously thrilled but also wary as I know the odds of having a healthy baby are stacked against me. Is it safe for me to continue taking the herbs that you have prescribed in early pregnancy? Please advise when you can. I will stop for now until I hear from you. Many thanks’

Alison, aged 42, came to us early in 2017 with high FSH (16) and low AMH (0.8) and 4 miscarriages. 

‘I am very surprised. I will show this results to my GP and tell him contrary to what he told me, my FSH can be improved.’

Bethany Bardo is 33. She came to us in July 2017 with high FSH (21.1) and high Prolactin (549). She had three months of treatment before re-test in October and found that her FSH and Prolactin are now within normal range at 10.8 and 424 respectively.

’… I do not believe this… in shock!’ June 2017

Caroline is 41 coming up to 42. She has irregular periods. In March 2017, her FSH was 24, LH 12.6, Oestradial 77 and AMH<0.2. She has diagnosed as near menopausal and she was advised to go for donor eggs through IVF. She came to us and 3 months later, she retested her hormones and found that Her FSH is 7, LH 3.3, Oestradial 488 and AMH 1.8.

‘My FSH result was 25 before. When I receive the test result after a few months of treatment, I was so nervous that I was too frightened to look at first. When I did, I was so pleased. It is now 13.9!’

Susan from London 2015. She then went through 2 failed cycles of IVF in 2016 and re started treatment with us in the later part of 2016. We discharged her after we felt that she was ready for natural pregnancy. She sent this e mail to us in mid July 2017.

‘Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve been in touch. I hope you are keeping well. It is very very early days but I have had a positive pregnancy test (over the counter tester kit). I’m about 6 weeks in.  I don’t want to get too excited but I wanted to drop you a note to see about coming back to see you’.

Susan later sent this to us in 2017. She is now 5 months’ pregnant.

‘I am very pleased with my results’

Isha from London 2016. Isha’s FSH was 18 and her AMH was 0.6 when she came to us in August 2016. After receiving treatment, she had a re-test in January 2017. Her FSH is now 7.5 and AMH 3.8.

What is FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone)?
Each female is born with a limited number of cells that can ripen into mature ova.

For the cells to turn into ova, they must be stimulated by FSH from a gland in the brain. In a fertile woman, once the ovum is produced, the ovum itself produces another hormone. This feeds back to the gland in the brain, telling it to stop producing FSH for the time being. If the woman does not become pregnant, the ovum degenerates – and she therefore has a period. Without the feedback hormone, the gland in the brain starts FSH again, leading to another cycle.

What does a high FSH mean?
If the ovary has many eggs, the FSH in a woman’s blood is low because the body doesn’t need to work hard to get a normal ovulation. If the egg number is low, the body needs to work harder to induce ovulation, so it increases the amount of FSH in an effort to stimulate the ovaries. A high FSH means the egg number is reduced – sometimes to levels so low that pregnancy is not possible. An FSH level of 10 or over is considered to be poor.

What can I do with a high FSH?
It is generally assumed that FSH is part of the aging process and it cannot be reversed.

However, there is some clinical evidence that FSH is reversible reported across the globe by reputable specialist practitioners. The actual mechanics in scientific terms are as yet unclear as there is not much research in this field.

Our clinic aims to balance hormones and improve the capacity of reproductive organ functions including ovarian functions, which we see as the main issues confronting women with high FSH.

Given our experience and clinical success in helping women to lower their FSH level, we are in discussion with St. Barts and Royal London Reproductive Medicine colleagues with a view to conducting detailed research to understand how and why our treatment works.

What is our clinical record?
Our record shows that we have an excellent track record of improving FSH results. In cases where patients come with these problems, our records show that we have managed to reduce their FSH levels by between a half and two thirds. Below are listed results from some of recent patients:

What do some reproductive specialists say about our track record and service? 

“I have been seeing some patients from TCM HealthCare. I have seen the clinical and biochemical data as patients have progressed with treatment from TCM HealthCare presented above.  It has been positively interesting. We are thinking of a research project to further advance the knowledge in this area”.

How do we lower FSH levels?
Over the past 15 years, we have perfected a system where we are now confident that we could lower FSH level for most patients. The most common treatment mode is through tailor-made Chinese herbal remedy. We sometimes use acupuncture when the circumstances are appropriate.

Patients come to us with their most recent FSH test result and other results such as scan (hormone test results are considered up to date if they are less than 3 months old). The first consultation will last for an hour where detailed but non-invasive and pain-free Chinese medical diagnostic procedures will be carried out. This will ensure we understand your particular condition and circumstances thoroughly. This in-depth understanding will allow our specialist to prescribe an unique herbal formula which usually consists of around 20 kinds of herbs tailored made for you only. You will be asked to make drinks out of them and consume them twice a day for 18 days in a month.

A month after the first consultation, you would have finished the herbal remedy. You come back again for a second consultation which will last for 30 minutes. Again, a diagnostic procedure will be carried out to see how well you respond to the treatment. Another unique herbal prescription will be formulated for your improved condition. This monthly cycle will repeat 3 to 4 times before you are asked to have another FSH test carried out. Most patients see significant improvements. This tell you objectively how well you have responded to the herbal remedy. For an overwhelming majority of our patients with high FSH, their post treatment test results are lower, sometimes even more than halved.

How much are the fees?
The all inclusive fees for treating women are in the region of £350 – £400 per month.

How often do I need to come?
Once a month. Most patients come to us for 3 months to 9 months. We will ask all patients to re do AMH test after 3 to 4 months. Some combine our treatment with further IVF cycles.

How do I book appointments?

We welcome your booking appointment with us anytime by calling us on 0207 096 0283.

We would like to see the following hormone/sperm test results (less then 2 months old) prior to your coming to us. If you have not done them yet, we are more than happy to arrange them for you. Results will come out within 1 to 3 days.

  1. Female Fertility test
  2. AMH

In cases where the test results are not ideal, we would ask you to re test them after 3 months to check how well you respond to our treatment. Our success rate in improving hormones are 80%, in improving sperm parameters is 70%.

A booking fee of £50 (refundable at attendance) will be processed at booking.

What should I do next after improvement?
You could pursue a number of options.

Firstly, you may wish to carry on trying naturally. Our records show that for patients who are treated for 6 months or more, our success rate in live birth or stablising recurring miscarriages is about 45%. Most patients are discharged after 6 to 12 months of treatment. Check out the page on ‘How do we help you get pregnant naturally.’

Secondly, you may wish to go down the route of assisted conception. We work with some of the best gynaecologists/assisted conception clinics that can offer a full range of treatment modalities which include IUI, IVF, ICSI. We could carry on working with you to ensure reduced levels of FSH during your cycle of treatment with your chosen clinic.

Thirdly, if you are not in a stable relationship but wish to lower your FSH level, You may wish to consider egg freezing since our treatment means that you will have a better chance of preserving more and better quality eggs (since you have more to choose from).

Whichever option you may wish to choose, rest assured that our treatment will give you a better fertility potential to meet your personal requirements.

Are there patients we cannot help?

Yes. No medical system is foolproof. Medical practitioners, however good, are not omnipotent. There are times that patients do not respond to our treatment despite our best efforts. In medicine, doing our best is not enough at times. When patients do not respond after the first course of treatment i.e. 3 months, some patients found that when they rest a little, their results improve. Delayed improvements are possible. However, even with rest, patients may still do not respond well. Fortunately, these cases are in the minority.  We minimise these cases by trying to understand patients conditions as much as possible before taking on patients. We minimise time and financial commitments from patients by insisting that they must have hormone or sperm test results prior to treatment and have them re tested after 3 months. At TCM HealthCare, we will always have your best interests in mind and we will do our best.
