Using Moxibustion and acupuncture to turn breech baby

I came to the clinic in early September, 2010, when I was 34 weeks pregnant with my second child.

My first child, a son, was an undiagnosed breech presentation and I had to undergo an emergency cesarean section for his birth in November, 2007. Having had a negative birth experience and not wanting to undergo major abdominal surgery for a...

Thin-lining infertility corrected in three months with acupuncture

I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 18. Despite being diagnosed with a chronic disease, I was very healthy and had good control of my blood sugar levels. Because of this, I didn't think I'd ever have problems getting pregnant. My husband and I started trying to conceive soon after we married when I was 27. I had stopped taking the pill after 11 years of being on it. The problem I noticed as soon as I got off the pill was that I...

Dribbling urine stopped and fabulous vaginal delivery thanks to acupuncture

I came to see Dr. Emilie Salomons after a difficult labour with my first child. Originally I came for help with my lack of breast milk, but once that was addressed and I was producing ample milk, we turned to other pressing symptoms. The birth left me weak and I was told I had "pelvic floor weakness." I was dribbling urine with the slightest abdominal pressure and I felt a sagging sensation in my pelvis. With acupuncture, I have been able to...

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.

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...
