A personal, kind, gentle, and invested approach is our goal with the flexibility to work with your Western Medical plan for fertility to optimize their results or on our own; very often on a ‘break’ from fertility cycles with injectible hormones… from IUI to frozen Embryo transfer to Donor Egg transfer – we are here to monitor and support from an informed TCM perspective.
A Women’s body goes through many cycles throughout her lifetime; puberty, pregnancy, menopause with hundreds of cycles of menstruation in between. The potential for Chinese Medicine to improve women’s health has, more recently, become openly recognized and supported by Western Medical fertility centers and in clinical research. A stark departure from Western Medicine’s approach is Chinese Medicine’s nonuse of artificial hormone control over the most natural and important events in a woman’s reproductive life and overall health. Chinese Medicine, when applied properly, can significantly influence all phases of Female Reproduction and (Male Factor) infertility.
Conception and Infertility
The extent of research and clinical evidence that speaks to Acupuncture’s positive influence on Pregnancy Outcomes is far too great to detail here – Research shows that some use TCM to optimize preconception health by first regulating their own natural ovulation and menstrual cycle; Some are using TCM to enhance natural fertility chances, And still, others are using TCM to prepare themselves for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (IUI or IVF) both physically and emotionally. Our goal is to find the deficit(s) leading to your infertility and make corrections to optimize results with or without ART.
Your Clinician at LIV is trained in the role of Acupuncture in Natural and Assisted Fertility for Women and their partners.
