Does anyone have any experience or recommendations for any Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practitioners, specialising in herbal treatments for recurrent pregnancy loss, in the London or surrounding areas that they could share please? Thanks!
My history - Been trying for two years. Have had 3 very early miscarriages ( losses at/before 5 weeks), diagnosed with Stage 4 endometriosis with cyst on one ovary. Had laparoscopy and cystectomy, three cycles later pregnant but missed miscarriage at 11 weeks ( baby stopped growing at 7.5 weeks). ANA, MTHFR, and Anti cardiolipin came back ok but TH1-TH2 is high. From online research, I have read that Rehmannia - a Chinese herb which is an adaptogen can balance TH1-TH2 levels. Hence my interest in TCM. Shout out to anyone who has the same problem, I would love to hear from you especially positive stories.
I would recommend Dr Wang at the Herbal Inn in Kensington. I know this might seem like an unpromising chain, but she is an extremely experienced TCM doctor who used to work at a big teaching hospital in China and specialises in herbs. I haven’t seen her for infertility but I have seen for pregnancy-related issues (and other things) and she has been great. eg buying me special products in Chinatown when she didn’t have them in stock.
Her English is good but not brilliant, so if you want to discuss something complex she might not be the right person but she is the best Chinese doctor I have seen in London and cheaper than at places like Acumedic.
mazin al-khafaji Avicenna in Brighton/Hove. Not London area but I believe he has clients that travel further and is easy to get to. I had severe endometriosis and have been "in remission" for 15 years and have two children. I can't comment on the th1 th2 bit but he definitely focuses on the immune system in some of his treatments. Anyway, what he did worked for me and I recommend him.
