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...

Healthy Baby Boy after Stillbirth

After losing our first son at 22 weeks, I was scared to get pregnant again. I didn't know how we would be able to get pregnant again and deal with the anxiety and fear of carrying another child. After hearing about Acubalance from a friend, I started to see Spence on a weekly basis to get a healthier mind, body, and spirit. His approach was amazing. The time he took to get to know me and understand what was going on physically and mentally...

A happy ending with continuing adventures

I think when us guys hear the words "fertility issue," we tend to look for ways to fix what's broken. My wife and I have been through the grinder and every test conceivable (<-yeah it's a pun) for Western medicine. There was no easy fix for what was quickly starting to look like an "infertile couple." Our last option was surrogacy but we still needed healthy eggs from my wife and good sperm from me to proceed. We asked around about what we...
