Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) includes acupuncture and Chinese herbal
medicine. It has successfully treated infertility, gynecological, male factor, and
many other illnesses and health problems facing couples for 5,000 years. Western medicine as we know it is just over 200 years old. TCM protocols differ from the procedures used in Western medicine-but their use offers hope for many for whom Western medicine is trying to or who has not yet helped. Several studies prove that your chances of conception, pregnancy and take home baby rates are increased when using acupuncture whether you are trying naturally or in conjunction with IUI or IVF. Some reports indicate a 40-60% improvement rate when used concurrently increasing the success of take home babies!
Incidence of male factor (30%) is rising and improvements in raising sperm count, motility, and changing morphology are notable with the use of Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.
Acupuncture is a very gentle, comfortable, and relaxing treatment. Acupuncture connects the organs, and all of your systems (endocrine, reproductive, blood, nervous, lymph, etc.) with the brain so that it functions in balance.
The incidence of sperm defects is approximately 25% in white-collar workers and over 50% in blue-collar workers.
Factors including stress, nutrition and diet, lifestyle, lack of rest, and environmental toxins are also considered more seriously than ever before.

My experiences ... it will happen.
There are many reasons for increased infertility throughout the world. Women are obtaining college degrees and professional positions, delaying marriage and pregnancy decisions.
Long term use of birth control is a major factor in suppressing reproductive hormones. Our food supply is tainted with animals injected with hormones, and antibiotics. Our grain, fruit and vegetables are hybrid, and sprayed with pesticides and cancer causing chemicals. We lead busy lives full of stress, fatigue and anxiety about one thing or another. Menstrual irregularities go unresolved by ob/gyn docs through out our lives, only to lead us to fertility specialists. Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine helps restore the body's reproductive cycles. It reduces stress and calms the nervous system down so it can better respond whether you are trying naturally or using timed intercourse, IUI, or IVF to facilitate pregnancy.
Acupuncture and TCM helps with recurrent pregnancy loss as well. By balancing reproductive hormones your body's natural menstrual cycle can occur. IT can increase blood flow to the uterus and follicles helping lining, egg quality and quantity. Acupuncture works great for reducing stress and calming emotions. Studies show that acupuncture in conjunction with IUI and IVF increase pregnancy rates by 40%. I am happy to discuss your case with you and derive the correct and most beneficial program for you. Yes you can have it all.
