Acupuncture and nutrition are the two best natural ways of enhancing fertility.
Acupuncture has been used for centuries to promote fertility. Acupuncture can improve ovarian and follicular function and can increase blood flow to the endometrium, helping to facilitate a thick, rich lining, support and encourage egg health, hormonal balance and very importantly as well, is help you deal with stress. Studies have shown that acupuncture increases the rate of conception for all methods of pregnancy (ie. Natural or IVF).
Nutrition also plays a big roll when it comes to having a healthy body and reproductive system. The building blocks for hormones are found in the foods we eat. Antioxidants which help to protect the egg and sperm from free radicals are found in the foods that we eat. Just as nutrients in food can be helpful for fertility, there are some foods and chemicals added to foods that can be harmful. Changing your diet in preparation for pregnancy and to boost fertility is one of the most powerful health changes you can make. Numerous studies have shown that specific foods and supplements can increase the chances of healthy ovulation, prevent recurrent miscarriage and support a healthy pregnancy.
Your initial appointment consists of an acupuncture and nutrition assessment. Using diagnostic testing like blood work, comprehensive screenings, face mapping, and tongue and pulse analysis we will assess your current health and the existing nutritional and energetic imbalances that are at the root of the problem.
Weekly acupuncture treatments are suggested. For IVF, best results are achieved if acupuncture is received 3 month prior to the procedure and immediately before and after the IVF. We will do all the necessary schedule adjustments needed.
Your nutrition treatment will consist of customized nutritional plans, herbal plans, exercise plans, as well as diet plan, goal maps, and any other plan you may need. These plans provide personalized, easy to follow instructions to improve your body. You will meet with your nutritionist on a monthly basis for assessments and guidance.
