A Natural and Integrated Approach to Infertility
at our office in Louisville, CO (servicing the Boulder and Denver Metro Areas) or on-line via phone/video consultations
Infertility is a very common challenge in our modern world. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 7.3 million women received infertility services between 2011 and 2014.(1) Infertility often responds well to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture, when other treatment methods have failed. Eastern medicine is often times a missing link. In fact, acupuncture has been clinically proven to enhance the chances of fertilization and live births by increasing blood flow to the uterus, stimulating ovulation and enhancing sperm quality and motility.(2)(3) Eastern medicine also helps address underlying stress and menstrual cycle regulation, which often accompany infertility.
Both TCM and Ayurveda place a great emphasis on ones health months before conception is desired for optimal results. Both Eastern traditions offer guidance on improving ones overall well-being, balancing hormones and treat underlying conditions prior to conception. We work specifically on enhancing fertility through diet, herbal medicine, lifestyle changes and most importantly, acupuncture. It is akin to tending the soil before the seed is planted.
However, we work with you wherever you are in your fertility journey! Some individuals and couples come to Wild Rose Medicine Acupuncture and Ayurveda a year before they want to conceive, others come after years of trying on their own or after unsuccessful ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology) attempts.
Individualized approaches to infertility help with each unique set of challenges. After your first visit you will leave with a detailed treatment plan and proposed schedule of appointments. We will discuss ways to enhance your diet and how to reduce stress along with which herbs and supplements to take. Whether you are using Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), your own methods or a combined and integrated approach, Margo offers natural, holistic guidance and support to help you through every step of this journey.
Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture are wonderful to:
- Increase blood flow to the uterus
- Stimulate ovulation
- Regulate the menstrual cycle
- Improve sperm quality and motility
- Decrease chances of miscarriage
- Decrease side effects of pharmaceutical drugs
- Reduce stress and anxiety
- Improve success rates for IVF patients
IVF (in vitro fertilization) patients in the Denver metro and Boulder areas now have the option of receiving acupuncture treatments at your fertility clinic before and after embryo transfer. This minimizes stress to the patient and has been clinically proven to increase success rates of the transfer while providing extra support to relax and minimize discomforts from the procedure.
Our most recent acupuncture treatments before and after IVF transfer was on-site at Conceptions Reproductive Associates of Colorado. And the news just came back, “Hi Margo, Yes! I am pregnant! Yay!!”
