RM, age 44 had been running through the fertility journey ringer by the time she came to me at Acubalance for acupuncture. She already had three unsuccessful medicated (Clomid) IUI cycles before she and her husband then...
The other day a patient asked me why her IVF doctor was using a specific protocol for her current cycle. It was her second round, and the medications and schedule were different this time. I explained that her doctor has a "fertility tool kit" that she can draw from; that new drugs and protocols are coming out all the time and that, based on research trials, her doctor chose what she believed was the best way forward for her individual case. This conversation got me thinking about my own tool kit, because Chinese medicine can sometimes be thought of strictly as Acupuncture. However, there are several modalities that I use with my patients, and I base those decisions on each individual pattern.
I am reminded that it is PCOS Awareness Month, which has brought to mind one of my favourite PCOS cases..
When Amy first presented, she had finally been diagnosed with PCOS by an endocrinologist via ultrasound. Up until then, her cycles were irregular and infrequent, only occurring naturally up to 2-3 times per year.

There are so many things which can damage male fertility. Men are told to stay away from hot tubs, pesticides, beer, processed foods and dozens of other fertility slashing things. What if there was one simple thing that men can add into their lives which would boost both sperm motility and morphology? Wouldn't you want to try it?
The knees are an important joint for basic mobility. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most commonly injured. We’ve recently attracted quite a few knee pain patients the past couple of months and have had overwhelming success using our signature laser acupuncture treatments.
The laser baby program has been in full swing at Acubalance Wellness Centre for two and half months now and we’re incredibly excited about the successful changes we’ve seen in our patient’s menstrual cycles, hormone levels, and general health and wellbeing.
