"When talking about research we must also bear in mind the clinical evidence and research that has come from over 1,500 years of Chinese medicine treating fertility issues," says Chinese medicine expert Andrew Loosely.
"There is a great amount of evidence accumulated by thousands of practitioners in China, and around the world, who have and are helping couples to conceive their families against the odds," adds Andrew."
