Fertility

Assisting women along the path to motherhood

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine offer practical guidance and effective treatment to help you achieve your goals.

Traditional Chinese medicine has been used for thousands of years to treat fertility concerns. Whether your struggle is unexplained by Western medicine or a reason for your difficulty in conceiving has been diagnosed already, Chinese medicine and acupuncture treatment can help correct the imbalance and restore health to your body, mind and spirit. We understand your struggles in this area as part of a larger picture of disharmony. In order to achieve your goal of conceiving a child many areas of your health may need to be addressed in order to bring the whole picture of your health to a more balanced place.

At Fertile Ground Natural Care you will be treated as a whole person, as an individual with a unique set of concerns. Understanding your fertility journey and your entire health picture is important for developing appropriate care. Treatments are based on an assessment of the underlying imbalances or blockages in the body that are causing the reproductive system to function incorrectly. Treatment may include acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, diet and lifestyle changes.

Specific Benefits of Treatment include:

  • Regulating the menstrual cycle (this may include treatment of endometriosis, fibroids and cysts)
  • Normalizing hormone and endocrine system function (such as FSH levels)
  • Improving ovarian function and blood flow
  • Increasing blood flow to the uterus
  • Increasing the thickness of the uterine lining strengthening the immune system
  • Reducing anxiety and stress

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can significantly improve the success rate of IVF, IUI, and other assisted reproductive technologies, as well as lessen the side effects from hormonal treatments.
