"The most fertile period of time for women is between the ages of 24 to 35. In this modern time, most women have to work and are choosing to establish a career before starting her own family. In addition, prevalent use of birth control and IUD have controlled most women's lives and their bodies. With these modern changes, may women are encountering difficulty with fertility and getting pregnant. Acupuncture is a safe and natural way to bring balance to the endocrine system (hormonal balance) and encourages the body to regulate itself naturally again. This approach can be used on both men and women. Some couples choose to use western methods, such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF), and research have shown that acupuncture increases the success rate of IUI and IVF treatment by 30%. Acupuncture can be used alone or in conjunction with western methodologies. I achieve best results with treating patients for at least 1-3 months prior to starting any western procedures. No words can describe the gratitude I have to be a part of a couple's journey of starting a family. Have you considered using acupuncture to improve your fertility?"
