Acupuncture and Chinese medicine help balance the hormones and increase fertility. It helps those working with Assisted Reproductive Therapies such as IVF & IUI, as well as, those trying to conceive naturally. I have been helping woman build their families for 20 years and it brings me great joy.
Benefits of using Traditional Chinese Medicine in conjunction with Assisted Reproductive Therapies IUI/ IVF:
Stress reduction, relaxation
Regulates hormones for better quality egg production
Improves ovarian function, more follicles, better egg production
Improves ovarian blood flow, increasing ovarian response
Strengthens the immune system
Increases blood flow to the uterus, improving the endometrial lining

I highly recommend that if possible individuals begin treatments 2-3 months prior to beginning their ART cycle for best results. I will devise a treatment plan that includes Acupuncture, nutrition, supplements, lifestyle changes and herbs when appropriate.
