I stumbled across an article that does a good job of explaining the philosophy of Chinese Medicine compared to that of Western Medicine.  I adamantly believe that both forms of medicine are equally important and actually compliment one another.

The article, from preconception.com, more specifically discusses Chinese medicine and fertility.  More and more people are seeking help from acupuncturists for infertility issues from PCOS to male factor infertility to unexplained infertility.  One reason for this increased acceptance is that we've seen good success helping men and women conceive over the years.  However, another important reason is that through scientific research and patients advocating for themselves, Western physicians have taken notice of the positive role acupuncture plays both medicinally and emotionally and are actually being more proactive with respect to acupuncture and the role it may play in improving the odds of conceiving.

One caveat, they talk about working to raise FSH levels in the article.  Yes, Chinese medicine can be useful in raising FSH levels if they are low, however, we more often use Chinese medicine to lower FSH levels.
