We offer Traditional Chinese Medicine and Functional Medicine...

Whether you are actively trying to conceive, or planning for the future, we can help optimize your reproductive health.

Our practice supports those struggling with fertility challenges, as well as unique fertility circumstances, such as single parents by choice, same-sex couples, and transgender couples.

Here are some of the ways that acupuncture, herbal medicine, and functional medicine may help improve your reproductive health:

  • Normalize the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis for regular and predictable ovulation.
  • Reduce stress hormone production that interferes with ovulation and progesterone production.
  • Improve blood circulation to your ovaries and uterus, thus optimizing the quality of both your eggs and endometrial lining, supporting follicle maturation, conception, and embryo implantation.
  • Improve pregnancy rates in those utilizing intra-uterine insemination (IUI) and in-vitro fertilization (IVF).

If you are working with a diagnosis such as, diminished ovarian reserve, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), or endometriosis, and if trying-to-conceive without assistance has not been successful, we can both, offer treatment, and guide you towards  appropriate and timely interventions. 

We also offer support for male factor issues.

Note: If you are trying, or planning, to conceive, basal body temperature (BBT) charting is an incredibly useful tool in identifying potential fertility challenges – please see the following articles that we have written on this topic.
