Acupuncture has been used safely and effectively to enhance natural fertility and help countless families grow! Your reproductive health is an extension of your general wellbeing, so we begin by addressing all of your health concerns and re-establishing balance in your body. This means focusing on the following areas:
Regulating your menstrual cycle: A regular cycle means predictable ovulation and being able to maintain the optimal level of hormones throughout the month.
Changing your habits and reducing stress: Sleep, exercise, overwork, alcohol consumption--these can all contribute to poor health and reduced fertility
Diet: There are foods that promote healthy fertility and foods the inhibit it. These foods are different for every person, so we offer specialized dietary recommendations for everyone
Whether you have been trying to conceive for a while with frustrating results or you are planning for the future, you will find that a few months of monitoring and regulating your menstrual cycle, making lifestyle changes, and supporting it all with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine will make a world of difference!
