Taking Chinese Diet to Boost Your Fertility
Chinese believe proper food intake not only supports the daily nutrient needs, but also cures or relieves health problems via their moderate therapeutic actions. Many food ingredients serve as herbs, for example, job tears, tangerine peel and ginger. They are used to make delicious dishes while at the same time exert medicinal properties. From this, eating the right foods and avoiding the wrong ones can make pregnancy possible.
The way of selecting the right foods is based on syndrome differentiation, so that they fit into the individual's constitution, correspond to the pathological conditions and assist the existing remedy. TCM refers to this as "an application in accordance with the individual, locality, season and disease."

The Chinese have one of the earliest writings on sex which is referred to as the "Chamber Skills". Its source can be traced back over 2,000 years ago. In 1974, excavations of the Mawangdui tomb discovered not only medical writings dating back to 168 BC, but also the earliest preserved sex monographs. The main purpose of the monographs was to pursue longevity and health through sex. They contained a large amount of details on therapies and prescriptions for sexual dysfunction. Sex was an important life nourishing measure in Taoist practice too. In Taoism, a healthy and balanced sexual relationship mirrors the harmony of nature and contributes to one's longevity. Most of all, moderation is recommended; it is thought excessive sexual activity depletes yin in men and yang in women.
