We treat many couples going through the difficulties of infertility. Most if not all are feeling frustrated and exhausted from this process. I am extremely happy to be able to work with these couples offering solutions, clarification and stress reduction. This is a unique skill set combined together for our patients here at Acubalance. We are able to combine western medical treatments with Chinese Medicine along with Naturopathic therapies.
Undersleeping: everybody’s doing it. Pushing their limits, watching another episode before bed, waking up too early to cram more into the day. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has labeled insufficient sleep a public health epidemic (the same initial warning they gave smoking cigarettes several decades ago). And it's got to stop if you want to regain vital health.

In our medicine, we do not believe that “health equals absence of disease” as is the case with other medical paradigms. We strive to bring our patients beyond the absence of disease to VITALITY. In this way, we believe in a spectrum model of health: at one end you have disease; in the middle you have a grey zone where lab tests are ‘normal’ but symptoms are present (aka you don’t feel well but nothing is ‘wrong’); and at the optimal end of the spectrum you’ll find vitality.
It's no secret that mindfulness meditation is one of the simplest and most powerful ways to work on the connection between our bodies and our brains. Perhaps the biggest gift of daily mindfulness meditation is that it creates space from which we can better cope with stressful situations, but it has positive impact on all aspects of life from relationships to health to career. A daily practice of being in touch with your true self – who you are beneath appearance and attitude and personality – brings us closer to everything we want in life.
I am always recommending and looking for new ways patients can decrease stress and anxiety levels. Fertility concerns and treatments are stressful for both partners, and a body undergoing stress is not functioning in a reproductively optimal state.
