Miracle Baby thanks to Acubalance

I am 38 years old and am expecting my first child. I am writing this blog to all the older moms to tell you not to give up! My husband and I tried to have a baby for over two years. Due to my age, we headed to the fertility clinic for help after one year of trying on our own. Over the next year, we tried two IUI's and two failed IVF’s.  The reason for our failed IVF’s was being called “Diminished Ovarian Reserve” (basically small amount of...

Sperm Count Increased by 70%

I have male factor fertility issues with regards to motility, morphology, and count. I decided to seek alternative medical help and consult with Dr. Ryan Funk at Acubalance in Langley. He started me with a 3-week detox cleanse and acupuncture 1/week. Upon completion of the cleanse, I began taking supplements which included a multivitamin, coQ10, and pro EPA.

After six months of treatment with Acubalance, the following results occurred...

Acupuncture and IVF - Successful Pregnancy after 6 years

My husband and I started trying to conceive when we got married six years ago. After a couple of years went by with no luck, we decided to go into our doctor’s office to see if there was a problem. The doctor couldn’t find anything wrong but suspected that damage from a surgery I had four years earlier to remove some pre-cancerous cells from my cervix might be a contributing factor. This meant that we needed to get help.

Pregnant Naturally after a Negative IVF and Miscarriage!

My entire life, I have always known that I wanted to have a family of my own. I have always loved being around children. When I got married, I was still really young. Even though I knew I wanted to have children, we didn't start trying to conceive for a few years since I wanted to "be ready" in all other aspects to start a family. Had I known all the struggles that we would go eventually through, we would have started trying to conceive as...

Miscarriage resolved with specialized acupuncture

We would like to thank Trevor Erickson for his huge support during my time at Acubalance. My husband and I had been trying to have a baby for almost two years but were unsuccessful due to many miscarriages. I was told by a friend to pursue acupuncture as an option so I searched for the most specialized acupuncturist in fertility. I found Acubalance.

After four miscarriages....

I began seeing Trevor in July 2009 after nearly three years of trying to have a baby. We went through four miscarriages - three miscarriages using Clomid and one miscarriage after two cycles of injectables. The stress of monthly doctor's visits, blood tests, temperature taking, etc. had me so depressed and really changed the person I was. Even worse, the introduction of all the hormone injections and coming off the pill after years of use...

My hot flashes completely went away

I had been in peri-menopause for eight years when I started seeing Emilie. After acupuncture and only two doses of her medicinal Chinese tea, my hot flashes completely went away and my life finally felt calm. Emilie saved me from insanity in my 40s! I cannot impress enough upon women of any stage of hormonal change to use Chinese medicine. I sent my mother, who is 80 years old, and was still getting hot flashes, to Emilie and now her body...

Improvements in menstrual cycle, endometriosis pain, & general health !

I was diagnosed with endometriosis after experiencing both bleeding and pain during intercourse. An ultrasound examination showed that I had a 10cm endometrioma on my right ovary and laparoscopic surgery was scheduled to follow. During surgery it, was discovered that I had severe endometriosis affecting my ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, and bowel. The surgery was successful in removing the endometrial lesions but I was warned that it would...

Regular Menstural Cycles Achieved!

Emilie is a true healer. Her kindness and patience radiates into her practice and leaves me feeling whole and complete. Plagued with a series of uncooperative and absent menstrual cycles and fertility issues, Emilie was able to put me back into a cyclical pattern. I am so grateful Emilie and I crossed paths, I look forward to her sessions at every opportunity and will continue to seek out her experience and expertise. I highly recommend...

Regular Period Equals Happy Pregnancy!

I first started seeing Ryan at Acubalance in January 2010.  Since a teenager, I have always had irregular/infrequent cycles which my doctor attributed to hormonal imbalances and diagnosed as oligomenorrhoea. At the time, my husband and I were not trying to get pregnant. However, we knew that we would want to start trying to conceive sometime within the next year. My main purpose for receiving acupuncture was to attempt to regulate my period...
