How Much Time Will It Take ? How Will It Work?
"Nourishing The Soil Makes The Flowers Grow"
As with any medicine or even when doing IVF, there is no way for any healthcare provider, natural or conventional, to predict when or if you will become pregnant. However, we typically see positive pregnancy outcomes within 3 to 9 months of treatment. What we also see is if you eventually decide to try IUI or IVF, your body will be at its utmost potential, having higher quality eggs, uterine lining, balanced hormones and overall health due the to time put into treatment, that assisted reproductive technology outcomes will only be greater.
Chinese Medicine Has Been Treating Infertility for Over 2000 years
Infertility treatment in Chinese medicine and gynecology dates back to 11 AD, which is over 2000 years ago. Some of the herbal formulas that are used today for fertility, hormonal balancing and gynecological issues are the same ones that were designed over 2000 years ago. What is so incredible about this is the time tested greatness of a medicine that has treated tens of millions of women through thousands of years of treatment. The treatment you will be receiving is practiced because it has successfully been used for women to have healthy babies for millennia and this is something that is a very powerful connection when beginning with our program.
“ I started seeing Dr. Dulberg when she was in the city at another center. It was just luck to get her, but I knew after my first treatment I would be seeing much more of her. In my initial consultation Dr. Dulberg spent nearly two hours with me. She wanted to really know who I was and why I was coming to her. I felt so heard and validated. I felt better. I was calm.
I wanted to try acupuncture for two reasons: first because I have a lot of anxiety, and secondly because I wanted to get pregnant soon, and I knew that acupuncture could be helpful should I run into an issue. A month after I started seeing her I was feeling less anxious and thankfully, pregnant. I continued to see her throughout the first 5 months of my pregnancy pretty regularly. Now she is back in Nyack, and I'll follow her there!
I'm grateful for her healing, for the "girl-power" she helped me to feel, her validation and her kind heart. If you've never tried acupuncture, let Lauren work with you. She'll listen. “ - Meghan V
