What does Traditional Chinese Medicine offer you as a treatment for infertility?
• You can get acupuncture and benefit from the newest and best TCM Herbal recipes.
• TCM can be used as both preparation and adjunct to IVF.
• You can benefit from TCM even without a doctor’s evaluation.
I’m familiar with the newest methodologies of IVF clinics.
Since 2001, I’ve been treating women with acupuncture and herbs, and I regularly attend continuing education courses in gynecology and infertility. Most recently, I completed the necessary coursework for receiving a certificate as a TCM Specialist in Reproductive Medicine, and passed the final exam.
I work one on one with my patients. My quiet practice is located in a historic house, in the neighborhood by the University. It’s a good balance for the clinical atmosphere of a busy Western medical infertility practice. Longing so much, for so long for your own baby, can make you feel sensitive and emotionally labile. The medications your doctor may give you as part of your IVF-cycle place additional stress on your body. You need a good place to relax. My gentle acupuncture style is guided by the principle that the patient should feel comfortable.
One hour of peace. One hour to experience the wholeness of your body.
Of course, there are more tangible benefits as well. Among other conditions, TCM can help with:
• Polycystic ovarian syndrome
• Advanced maternal age
• Repeated pregnancy loss
• Luteal phase defect
• Premature ovarian failure
• Irregular menstrual cycles
• Unexplained infertility
Wherever you decide to get TCM infertility treatments, do make sure that your practitioner has a good grounding in Chinese herbs. While acupuncture can increase blood flow in the pelvis, decrease stress, and trigger ovulation, the herbs work on a deeper level. Often infertility from unknown causes responds well to months of Chinese herbs, combined with acupuncture.
