For hundreds of years, Chinese herbs have been used to treat a wide range of health issues. Now, numerous researchers have backed up what practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine have recognized for centuries—Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) is an effective tool for treating female infertility and boosting pregnancy rates.
According to a 2015 meta-analysis of 40 different medical trials, involving more than 4200 women in total, using Chinese herbs improves pregnancy rates two-fold within a three to six month period compared with Western medical fertility drug therapy. In fact, average pregnancy rates were 60% for women who used Chinese herbs, compared with 33% for women who did not.
This same study found that use of Chinese herbs improved key fertility indicators including ovulation rates, cervical mucus score, biphasic basal body temperature, and endometrial lining thickness. Overall, CHM helped women achieve a more favorable environment for viable pregnancy than Western medical treatments alone. Two of the trials in the study even found that herbs helped reduce pain from endometriosis.
Why Chinese herbal medicine works
Practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine, like Freya co-founder Marco Chung-Shu Lam, L. Ac., have thousands of herbs at their disposal and expertly craft each formula to meet their patients’ needs. Unlike many Western medical treatments, CHM formulas are balanced and targeted to address whole body health and wellbeing—and in turn, fertility.
As noted in the study, “Any irregularities in the menstrual cycle and general wellbeing, often seen in conditions associated with infertility, are fundamental factors which can be optimized before conception is attempted.”
CHM therapy addresses these factors, strengthening not just egg quality—a common focus of Western medical fertility treatments—but the whole reproductive landscape, creating the best possible environment for ovulation, conception and pregnancy.
Freya makes effective herbal formulas accessible

Recognizing the effectiveness of herbal treatments, he created Freya to bring the very best of powerful, adaptogenic herbal teas into a more convenient daily formula for easier prevention against the issues he regularly sees in his clinic. Marco says:
“In Chinese Medicine, the skilled practitioners look at regulating the menstrual and hormonal cycles of women as their fulcrum to achieving greater health. By restoring the proper balance, we maintain our youth longer and achieve a spring-like vitality. This beautiful elegance is the foundation of Freya which takes herbs at different parts of your cycle to create deeper balance.”

Freya’s three unique formulas support you throughout your cycle
Each box of Freya contains three different formulas. Each is customized to support a different phase of your menstrual cycle while supporting the overall health of your reproductive system.*
Freya Menstrual Formula gently invigorates the blood and helps alleviate menstrual pain. It relaxes uterine muscle tension and supports your uterus in letting go of old layers to lay the foundation for your next cycle. This formula is particularly beneficial if your cycles have become absent or irregular due to stress, intense physical training, IUDs, or hormonal birth control.
Freya Daily Formula (Strengthen and Nourish) is designed to support the development of healthy follicles and to regulate optimal ovulation. This formula helps delay the onset of perimenopause and menopause. It also nourishes the blood and the kidneys, which can become depleted through over work and excessive stress in our fast-paced culture. If you feel particularly fatigued after your cycle, this formula can be a gamechanger!
Freya Luteal Formula is designed to be taken the week before your menstrual cycle. This basic formula has been used by women for thousands of years to regulate hormones, support reproductive health, and ease cramps and tension around their cycles. The Luteal Blend has a deeply relaxing effect on the mind, body and spirit, and invigorates and nourishes the blood to for a smoother and less painful menstrual cycle.
