ARE THE CHINESE HERBAL BLENDS SAFE TO TAKE WITH PRESCRIPTION OR OVER-THE-COUNTER DRUGS?
The majority of herbs can be categorized as foods and in most cases the answer is yes. But in some cases, it's best not to mix herbs or supplements with prescription drugs.
Here is a list of conditions that we DO NOT recommend using in conjunction with our herbal elixirs. If you are:
- Starting or in the middle of an IUI/IVF or a medicated cycle.
- Taking blood thinners such as prescription heparin, lovonox, coumadin, or over-the-counter aspirin.
- Allergic to any of the ingredients in the herbal elixirs.
Although we cannot anticipate every single scenario or situation, it's best to exercise caution. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about the herbal elixirs.
WHAT does my Fertility Pattern mean in Chinese Medicine?

WHY IS Fertile ME IN POWDER FORM?
We know that on the TTC journey, you're already doing a lot of other things to boost fertility. Since supplements is an important part of your fertility plan, we wanted to make it super easy.
We decided on powder because we can fit the daily dose into just one scoop, instead of 6 capsules like other brands.
We also know that powder is easy to travel with, easy to drink, and easy to be absorbed by the body.
WHY ARE THE HERBAL ELIXIRS MADE WITH ALCOHOL?
The elixirs are made using the traditional method which involves using grain alcohol. This is a practice that dates back several thousand years.
Alcohol is a potent, natural preservative of freshness. Plus, its warming properties helps to carry the herbs into the bloodstream much faster so that they can start working right away.
WHY AREN'T THE ELIXIRS MADE INTO POWDER?
We know that if we don't make this easy, you're going to miss out on the opportunity to really amplify your fertility and get pregnant.
Elixirs are the most POTENT ways to take Chinese herbs other than cooking the raw herbs yourself...which is time-consuming, expensive, and the aroma may not be for the faint of heart...plus, you'll need to drink a big cup of bitter tea without the ability to add any flavoring or sweeteners.
Powder formulation presents very much the same problem as the raw herbs when it comes to taste and smell.
And, bottom line is, powder formulations are not as powerful as liquid concentrates. You get the most bang for your buck with the elixirs.
HOW ARE THE ELIXIRS MADE?
The exact process of making the elixirs and the exact ingredient ratio are proprietary information.
However, the gist of it is this, raw herbs are soaked in grain alcohol for an extended period of time to extract all its essence.
WHO CAME UP WITH THE NAME TWO ELEFANTS?
Once up on a time, Adrienne and Ashley were brainstorming names for our products, and all of the sudden they noticed that elephant figurines were everywhere in the office.
That's because, Adrienne, who is a huge believer in Feng Shui knew that elephants symbolized fertility, and had placed them all around the clinic to enhance the fertile energy for acupuncture patients.
It was a light bulb moment for both of them.
And upon further reading and discovering how amazing elephants are besides being the symbol of fertility, the two As changed the "ph" to "f" for fertility and female.
