Have you ever felt the high prices of modern fertility treatments in western assisted reproductive technology are limiting your visits even though you may feel it is working . . . let’s face it, modern fertility treatments can be hard on the pocketbook.
Western fertility intervention can also take its toll on your overall body balance. For couples wading through the waters of fertility, affordable holistic support can be the perfect fit — it’s better for your health and your pocketbook, making it work on your family budget.
I’ve helped countless couples and single parents by choice realize their dream of a baby through acupuncture, herbal medicine and holistic health care coaching over the last 16 years in my own practice, two eastern medicine fertility clinics, and a community acupuncture clinic. Now, I am full circle back to my own practice in a fully supportive integrative practice at Peoples Rx Wellness Center North. Acupuncture can greatly enhance the success rates of both couples trying to conceive naturally and couples using assisted reproductive technology such as IVF and IUI treatments.
Acupuncture treatments are affordable, so couples can partake often enough to actually make a positive difference in their health and fertility without going into debt to do so! Treating male fertility is just as important as female fertility and often goes unattended to. Fact is over half of couples that have fertility issues have an unidentified contributing issue found in the male partner, like low sperm count, poor morphology, or varicocele, all of which acupuncture, and herbal medicine help to correct.
Acupuncture partnered with good diet, nutrition and a healthy lifestyle can help you conceive and carry a baby to term. Advanced maternal age is one factor to consider as couples are waiting longer to start families. However, other than any physical barriers that would prevent pregancy, I know from my own personal experience, even at an advanced maternal age, (43 for me!) women can conceive when they tend mindfully to their overall body health and balance. Along with acupuncture and herbal remedies, my holistic healthcare coaching helps patients reduce chronic stress, examine the quality of their diet, and consider other factors in the environment and elsewhere that disrupt hormonal balance. My goal is to help patients incorporate good self care rituals that will contribute to their ability to conceive and carry through the parenting years.
In fact, it has been estimated in studies that acupuncture alone, or while undergoing assisted reproductive technology, can increase your likelihood of pregnancy by 40-60%. Studies show acupuncture alone can help to correct some infertility issues . . .
- Acupuncture improves blood flow to the uterus, ovaries and male reproductive organs —strengthening the male and female reproductive organ systems making conceiving and carrying a baby more possible.
- Balances male and female hormones and hormone cycles
- Regulates digestion and other organ functions, which are vital to fertility.
- Reduces body tension, stress and anxiety – helping your body breathe, let go and relax so it can do what it’s innately able to do — conceive and carry a healthy baby to term.
I would be honored to be a part of Your Fertility Care Team, and will take excellent care of you!
