Traditional Chinese medicine represents an intermediate step for couples prior to beginning Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) procedures; it is less invasive than ART: physically, emotionally and fiscally. For couples who have been unsuccessful with ART, our approach can normalize the female hormone balance and can nourish and strengthen the body.

Many hormonal problems are due to slight imbalances in the delicate endocrine system, which may alter a pathway by which the body produces hormones. A slight aberration can throw the entire system off so it no longer functions smoothly. For instance chronic sinus infections affect the body’s immune system, which affects the reproductive steroids. The body makes decisions based on survival or reproduction, thus prioritizing survival over reproduction. Our approach is designed to normalize the body’s chronic survival response (chronic stress, chronic infections, any slight imbalance that has become chronic) and as we do this, we are also gently balancing the hormonal profile. We accomplish this with sophisticated saliva hormonal profiles, Acupuncture, herbs, and supplements working to assist you back into balance.
Research has shown that acupuncture influences these hormonal pathways, and assists our own internal energies to restore endocrine harmony. Certain meridians influence the internal organs, some control the reproductive organs, others effect the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis, which is responsible for ovulation and sperm production. They all need to be balanced for optimum function. Our approach can improve the results of ART procedures or it can be used independent of western medical interventions.
