IVF + Reproductive Technology
We work with anyone who is may be undergoing Assisted Fertility Technology treatments like IVF and IUI, donor eggs or have an LGTB growing family.
Our treatment program for IVF + IUI involves regular acupuncture treatments and custom herbal formulas if needed, specific to the patient and their Integrative Medicine diagnosis to support the best outcomes.
Scientific studies have shown that acupuncture treatment in conjunction with IVF can increase successful outcomes up to 60-70%. Since every patient is different, we create a treatment plan specific to you.
Benefits of Acupuncture during an IVF/ IUI Cycle
1. We prepare your body for the process.
IVF/IUI can create a lot of stress on the body and mind. Acupuncture, dietary therapy and herbal formulas ( given before hormonal treatments) can greatly improve the quality of your health prior to ovarian stimulation protocols as well as easing overall stress. By increasing the body’s vitality and health we are maximizing the ovarian response while minimizing side effects from treatment which can occur when doing IVF. Through preparing the body, we expand our body’s resources and resilience to effectively respond to fertility drugs while affecting the body to maintain good health and endurance throughout the process.
2. Side effects of IVF treatment are reduced
When we help put the body into a better state of balance prior to your IVF/ IUI cycle, your side effects are minimized. We have seen countless IVF/IUI patients, and we can say unequivocally that the vast majority of them who had done previous cycles without our program reported a significant reduction in bloating, moodiness, tiredness, and other common side-effects of ovarian stimulation.
3. The Mind-Body Connection Really Makes A Difference
We teach you powerful mind-body techniques to help you connect you through the process. In Chinese medicine there is an actual pattern of the heart - uterus being disconnected and through IVF cycles that may not be successful, this tends to happen. It in my mission to empower women emotionally and spiritually and I strongly believe there is always some level of a spiritual component or mind body connection through the process of bringing a new life into this world. We are here to support and encourage this process..
