“Numerous scientific studies have shown that acupuncture can increase rates of conception and live birth by as much as 60% in some cases.”
Have you and your partner decided to move forward with an In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) or Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) cycle and want to do everything that you can to ensure success? As you may already know, these procedures can be complex as well as stressful. Once the cycle is underway, so much of the process is out of your control and in the hands of your Reproductive Endocrinologist (RE) and their team.
You might feel helpless and wish that there was more that you could do to ensure a successful outcome. At Balance Acupuncture and Natural Medicine we want you to play an active part in your IVF process. As specialists in fertility acupuncture, we understand the complexity of the IVF procedure and work to enhance what your Reproductive Endocrinologist is doing at every stage of the process.
We believe that your body’s ability to respond to the various phases of the IVF process is strongly affected by your overall health and well being. A healthy response to the drugs, good egg quality and a fertile and receptive uterine lining are all essential for success. A healthy, thriving body and a calm, happy mind naturally produce a more fertile environment for life to take root.
“Take the time to prepare your body so that your chances of a successful outcome are optimized.”
The benefits of our IVF/IUI Preparation Program:
1. We prepare your body for the process.
Chinese medicine is known to increase blood flow, balance immune function and calm the central nervous system. Our acupuncture protocols along with any herbal or nutritional supplementation (done before, not during your injection cycle) are designed to gently guide your body into a state of optimal response and receptivity.
2. Reduction of side effects from medications.
Many of our patients who have done previous cycles report that they have significantly less bloating and fatigue as well as fewer headaches and better moods during the cycles where they incorporate acupuncture into their process.
3. Personalized coaching and support
In addition to acupuncture we provide our patients going through IVF/IUI treatment with individualized coaching and support in regards to nutrition, mind/body practices and other helpful techniques. It is our goal for you to have the most successful cycle possible and we support you with everything that we’ve got.
