Assisting male health

“Around 30 per cent of fertility problems originate in the man. Problems include poor quality sperm, poor morphology or low sperm count” (Monash IVF)

Major factors affecting sperm health are:

  • Cigarette smoking
  • Obesity
  • Drugs, Alcohol
  • Busy lifestyle, Stress (Adrenal exhaustion)
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Heat stress from tight fitting pants

Sperm are living cells within the male body and are subject to the body conditions during maturation phase. Therefore, smoking, extreme temperature and above factors may impact the quality of the sperm.

The good news is, new sets of sperms are generated every 3 months so with changes in lifestyle, diet and supplementing by receiving acupuncture and herbal medicine may help to improve the quality.
