Chinese medicine will help in several ways, namely: weight loss, increasing energy, calming stress and anxiety, boosting your immune system so you don’t get sick, and facial rejuvenation. I recommend that the initial consultation take place approximately three to six months (depending on individual goals) prior to your wedding. We will then establish a personalized treatment plan to set us on the road to accomplish what we need to accomplish before your big day.
On your actual wedding day, I offer acupuncture, massage, and aromatherapy to both you and your bridal party (should you so desire). This is the perfect way to get ready, de-stress, take a breath, relax and enjoy. And for the women sharing this special day with you, these treatments make a wonderful gift. The best part is, I come to you!
Live natural. Live well.
Infertility is unfortunately on the rise. Some of it has to do with people waiting until later in life to have children. Some of it is due to the high stress levels most of us experience. Environmental causes- pollution, plastic, pesticides, steroids in non-organic animal products- are a leading cause of infertility as well. All of these can wreak havoc on your hormone levels, in both men and women.
What else may be hindering your fertility
Obesity, diabetes, testosterone or steroids, too much exercise, smoking, too much or too little selenium, saw palmetto, weakened adrenal glands, caffeine and alcohol, hypothyroidism
All of the above can be treated. Look for an acupuncturist in your area who specializes in fertility. I also offer phone consultations for herbs and nutrition, so you can contact my office to make an appointment. I also offer medical testing to check hormone levels, your adrenal gland function, and thyroid disorders.
