The fertility program at The Wholesome Lotus takes into account every aspect of the individual as well as the couple as a unit. Many times both partners cannot come in and the program is geared to the individual. The program assesses each individual with their unique needs and encompasses a holistic approach to fertility wellness. The program includes:
A complete assessment from a TCM perspective as well as reading labs to figure out the needs of each patient
ONLINE FERTILITY SUPPORT GROUP
I created a group online to support women going through fertility challenges. Click here to join.
COMMON UNDERLYING INFERTILITY CONDITIONS THAT ACUPUNCTURE TREATS
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
Low Sperm Count
Acupuncture works very well in supporting IVF treatments. It is recommended to begin a few months before the IVF cycles in order prepare the body for optimal IVF outcome. Treatments are done to improve hormonal balance, egg quality, and for stress reduction during a woman’s IVF treatment protocol.
ACUPUNCTURE AT TIME OF TRANSFER
I use a scientifically studied protocol on site before and after transfers for my patients. Contact me for more information.
When a woman does get pregnant during the fertility program, the program moves into it’s second phase which is to support the pregnancy. Pregnancy requires a lot of energy and reserves with which acupuncture can greatly accommodate. Acupuncture can also alleviate many symptoms associated with early pregnancy. I incorporate a protocol after 37 weeks to prepare for labor. I also treat common symptoms associated with late pregnancy such as lower back pain and swelling. Breech presentation can also be treated with acupuncture, though I do recommend starting as soon as possible.
