Fertility


My approach to fertility treatment is multifaceted. During your first visit, we will discuss your health history in depth. Once we identify the root of the imbalance from a Chinese medical perspective, we will work with you to improve and correct the imbalances that may be interfering with your ability to conceive. This may include dietary and lifestyle changes, acupuncture treatment protocols and herbal medicine.The first and primary goal of traditional Chinese medicine is to enhance and balance your body’s overall health and well-being; this allows the inborn ability of conception to take place. A healthy, more balanced body will conceive more naturally.

Acupuncture and herbal medicine can significantly increase your chances of conception if your infertility is due to:

  • Amenorrhea
  • Endometriosis
  • Irregular and Annovulatory Menstrual Cycles
  • Luteal Phase Defect LPD
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease PID
  • Premature Ovarian Failure POF
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome PCOS
  • Stress
  • Poor Egg Quality
  • Thin and Unresponsive Endometrium
  • Cervical / Uterine Factors
  • Immunological Factors
  • Fallopian Tube Factors
  • Ovulation Factors

Acupuncture is able to increase the chances of pregnancy through natural conception, IVF, IUI, and other ARTs because it has been clinically shown to:

  • Regulate and stabilize hormone levels
  • Help produce more follicles
  • Increase blood flow to the uterus and ovaries by lowering impedence
  • Thicken the endometrial lining
  • Reduce the chance of miscarriage
  • Strengthen the immune system and the overall health of the body
  • Reduce stress
  • Absorb nutrients and maintain ideal weight
  • Faciliate relaxation
  • Improve the quality of sleep
  • Have NO side effects - does not introduce toxicity to you and your baby
