Fertility Support Without Full Time Acupuncture
I have had an incredible year so far working with some amazing patients. I'm lucky in the sense that I have been able to treat some very dedicated couples. I see patients for regular acupuncture to help improve their chances of pregnancy. But what happens when you can't come for regular acupuncture? Will you still have a greater chance of success when trying to conceive? Yes!
There are lots of reasons why you may not be able to make it in for regular fertility acupuncture treatments. Travelling lots for work, time constraints due to family or living in a different country. Sometimes getting to my office for regular acupuncture sessions is nearly impossible. What people don't usually realize is that acupuncture is only one part of the medicine that we practice. There are many ways to improve fertility at home which improve your chances of conceiving.
Over the past few weeks I have had a handful of patients e-mail or call me with the exciting news that they are pregnant. These handful of women have not been coming for regular acupuncture but have been following a treatment plan I created for each of them. They only get acupuncture occasionally.
Improve Fertility - Many Ways, Including Acupuncture, Lifestyle, Diet, Exercise, Stress Reduction
When a new patient contacts me and we create a treatment plan, we dive deep into all aspects of their life to see where we can improve fertility and boost their chances of getting pregnant. Diet, exercise, supplements, stress reduction, sleep, environmental toxin exposure and the list goes on to what we may discuss during an initial consultation. With this new information we create a specific treatment plan. Patients following the plan begin to experience an improvement in many areas of their health such as digestion, sleep, stress levels as well as their fertility. As their health complaints decrease and their health improves the treatment plan also changes.
Although not essential for treatment, acupuncture is a very useful tool in improving fertility that I recommend. Those who are doing acupuncture along with their treatment plan will experience faster results. For the handful of patients who are not coming for regular acupuncture, they often still do get treatments when possible. Many women will have acupuncture once or twice a month.
In some cases I will likely never see my patient face to face. Later today I have an appointment with a couple from overseas. I am almost 100% certain they will not be flying over just to have acupuncture with us here at Acubalance. They will, however, be given a very detailed treatment plan that will help increase the chances of conception even without the needles!
