Trying To Get Pregnant?
Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after 1 year of trying to get pregnant. In order to improve the chances of successful conception it is necessary to treat the couple holistically.
Conditions such as endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome or irregular cycles can all contribute to infertility.
Salivary hormone testing can be used to assess if the hormones are imbalanced and supplements can be prescribed to help bring the hormones back into balance.
Acupuncture can be used to help with fertility issues. Regular acupuncture treatments weekly or biweekly can be used to help bring hormones back into balance. Acupuncture can be used to help promote the circulation of “Qi” and has been shown to improve ovarian function, decrease stress levels and optimize chances of conceiving. Acupuncture can also be used to optimize the success of “in vitro” fertilization.
