My philosophy of treatment for fertility is to look at what is going on not only physically, but also emotionally, spiritually and in the relationship within the couple or the individual seeking fertility care. I have seen this to be extremely powerful for creating the healing that is being called for in order to bring in the much desired new baby.
In recent years acupuncture has been getting increased press coverage for helping people who are struggling with fertility issues. Some western medical terms you may have heard that may be helped my using Chinese medicine and acupuncture are:
- AMENORRHEA OR IRREGULAR PERIODS
- DECREASED OVARIAN RESERVE
- LUTEAL PHASE DEFECT
- ELEVATED FSH
- IMMUNOLOGICAL ISSUES
- OVARIAN CYSTS
- UTERINE FIBROIDS
- RECURRENT MISCARRIAGE
- STRESS RELATED HORMONE IMBALANCES
- POLYCYSTIC OVARIAN SYNDROME
- MALE FACTOR INFERTILITY
As a practitioner of Chinese medicine and acupuncturist I treat the Chinese medical issues associated with these conditions by using a combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, essential oils, nutrition, meditation and other lifestyle changes.
I treat people that are trying natural approaches to getting pregnant and those that are going through IVF and IUI procedures.
It is generally recommended that woman going through IVF and IUI procedures start treatment, at least a couple months in advance to help balance the body and hormones and help to increase the number and quality of eggs, increase blood flow to the uterus and increase endometrium layer before egg retrieval and transfer.
I do my best to make myself available to do the pre and post IVF and IUI protocols on the day of transfer.
Treating infertility is one of my favorite things to do. It is a very emotional time for people and I am always honored that people put their trust in me.
