Fertility

Traditional Chinese medicine has enhanced fertility for thousands of years. 

Celina has worked with hundreds of women and couples trying to conceive on their own, with the support of Chinese Mediicne, and also integrating her care with reproductive specialists when needed.

Because acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can strongly influence the reproductive and endocrine systems, it can help address a wide variety of women's health concerns that may hinder fertility. These conditions include PMS, dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea, fibroids, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, and PCOS. Acupuncture and herbal medicine can improve these gynecological conditions as well as promote overall emotional and physical well-being in order to restore balance in a woman's body and increase fertility.

Fertility acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be used to help prepare for, and enhance, conception in ART cycles for IVF, IUI and other ART protocols. It has been shown to improve fertility rates as much as 50% when used as a complementary therapy for IVF preparation and to support IVF or IUI treatment protocols.

Chinese medicine can have the following effects for those seeking to promote their fertility naturally or with the help of assisted reproductive therapies (ART) such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF) or intra-uterine insemination (IUI).

  • Regulate hormones

  • Improve ovarian functions and the quality and quantity of follicles

  • Increase blood flow to the uterus and thicken uterine lining for implantation

  • Reduce side-effects of western drugs and intervention

  • Increase sperm count, mobility and quality

  • Reduce chances of miscarriages

  • Strengthen the immune system

  • Decrease stress and anxiety

  • Relax the uterus

 

Celina and her and patients work closely together. In addition to Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, the patient takes an active role in their own health and fertility, sometimes using Basal Body Temperature charts, cervical fluid tracking, and nutritional and lifestyle therapies.
