Recent successful cases from our patients

Jessica, a 41-year-old architect: Trying to conceive with an autoimmune disease & advanced maternal age

Jessica had always wanted to be a mother but had difficulty conceiving.  She had been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis several years before and her doctors suspected this was contributing to the infertility she experienced. We started Jessica on a simple treatment plan where she received acupuncture and took herbal medicine. The first thing Jessica noticed as she started treatment was a reduction in her overall stress. Slowly her joints became less swollen and painful, the stiffness lessened and she was able to move around better. After about six months of treatment Jessica came in for her appointment and announced happily, “I am expecting!” Today Jessica continues to live with minimal joint discomfort and her son Shane is a happy, healthy boy that loves dinosaurs and lego.

Rowena, a 43-year-old insurance underwriter: Trying to conceive their second child after failed IUI & IVF 

Rowena already had one child when she first came to see us. She desperately wanted her son to have a sibling. Rowena had been diagnosed with advanced maternal age, high FSH and poor quality eggs.  She had undergone two failed IUIs and one failed IVF cycle. Of the 4 eggs they retrieved, only two fertilized, but just one became a healthy embryo.  Unfortunately the transfer was unsuccessful.  We started Rowena on a simple treatment plan initially with acupuncture and then after a few sessions started herbal medicine. Rowena became noticeably less anxious and worried. After four months of treatment, she came in all smiles announcing, “I’m pregnant!” At the time of writing she is 23 weeks along and glowing!

Sarah, a 37-year-old marketing manager: Trying to conceive after several miscarriages

Sarah, 37, is the mother of a rambunctious two-year-old girl named Luna. Before Luna was conceived, Sarah and her husband had been trying to conceive for over three years without success. Just as Sarah was about to start her first cycle of IUI, she discovered that she was pregnant! When Luna turned one, Sarah and her husband decided that they were ready to expand their family again. Sarah was able to get pregnant three times in the year before she came to see us but unfortunately she suffered early miscarriages each time. Her doctors weren’t able to detect a reason for the miscarriages. After Sarah did her free consultation and intake assessment, we determined that Sarah’s periods weren’t optimal. They were very heavy, dark in colour, clotty and she experienced significant cramping and PMS symptoms. Using acupuncture, herbal medicine and nutritional supplements we began to improve Sarah’s blood and energy circulation and supported her hormonal system. Within the first menstrual cycle as a patient with us, Sarah reported that her period was much better. There was significantly less pain, no clotting and the menstrual blood was bright red. After four months of treatment, Sarah sent us a message before her next appointment sharing the exciting news that she was pregnant!  She welcomes her baby later this year!

Alex, a 34-year-old public relations co-ordinator: Trying to conceive with low AMH & poor egg quality

Alex, 34, and her husband had been trying to get pregnant for nearly five years. They weren’t given very much hope by her doctors. Alex’s hormone levels were very low, in particular her AMH.  She sadly told us, “My doctor says that I have the ovaries of an almost 50 year old woman. Do you think there’s hope for me?” I confidently told her that in her case there is always hope.  Alex started with acupuncture and small changes to her eating habits. She immediately noticed that her energy level increased and she was sleeping better at night. After a few weeks we added in herbal medicine to support her hormones and menstrual cycle. When she returned for her appointment after seeing her fertility doctor, she smiled happily and told me, “My doctor was so surprised after looking at my blood work. All my levels are coming up! She said whatever you’re doing, keep doing it!” Alex was due to start a medicated cycle with the fertility clinic (where she would be given medications to stimulate ovulation) the next menstrual cycle but she became pregnant during her current cycle.  They are getting ready to welcome their daughter in the coming months!

The guiding principle of our Fertility Enhancement Program is “life creates life”

Our fertility enhancement program is designed to support your body’s natural intelligence, innate ability to heal and harmonize the delicate balance of your menstrual cycle.  When you are vital, healthy, and full of life, your fertile potential naturally expresses itself in everything you do, and subtle obstructions to your natural fertility can be removed.   We incorporate a detailed holistic analysis of your unique needs and combine it with information from your laboratory results.  By combining the ancient wisdom of Chinese medicine with modern science, we are on the cutting edge of fertility care, providing our patients with a high degree of accuracy and efficacy.  Your treatment program will consist of:

Our Process

3 Simple Steps:

1

1. Free initial consultation

At your free initial consultation you’ll meet with your clinician to discuss your concerns including current symptoms, medical history, any medications you’re taking, and most importantly YOUR GOALS.  We want to be certain that our program is going to meet your needs and that there is a HIGH probability of success for you – BEFORE we move forward to the next step.

2

2. Detailed assessment, report of findings & treatment plan

Once your free consultation is complete, and we agree to move forward, your next step is the Intake appointment.  At this appointment, your clinician will do a detailed assessment of your symptom pattern, medical history, and other factors to determine the root cause of your issue and devise a specific plan of action.  Your first acupuncture session will be performed at this time.

Afterward, you will be given a treatment plan with exact, easy-to-follow instructions.  Your clinician will explain to you what’s happening in your body and how we will work together to correct it.  Your treatment plan will include dietary and lifestyle adjustments as well as key supplements and herbal medicines to address the root cause of your concerns and address your most pressing symptoms.

6

3. Active treatment & symptom resolution

You’ll return for regular visits to ensure that we’re supporting your body, as you begin to feel the positive shifts from treatment.  We want to make sure your treatment plan is yielding the expected results.  You’ll receive acupuncture and any other appropriate treatment at each visit to ensure that your progress is cumulative and your concerns are resolved as soon as possible.

8

Transitional care as your symptoms & health stabilize

Once we see stable improvements, we will begin to reduce the frequency of visits.  The goal will be to maintain the improvements we’ve achieved with more frequent, regular treatment.  Initially you’ll come every week, then less frequently, then you’ll no longer need regular treatments.  We’ll be here in case you ever want to come in for a tune-up or address other health concerns.  Of course, MANY of our patients do wish to continue with “ongoing maintenance” and we are happy to do that, should that be your wish.

4

Taking care of your friends & loved ones

We pride ourselves on the fact that more than 80% of our new patients are referred to us by other patients or people in our community who have witnessed their friends and loved ones receive life-changing benefits through our work.  So, we look forward to helping YOUR family, friends and loved ones on THEIR journey to a more joyful, energetic and purposeful life.

Common Questions & Answers:

+ HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE HELP WITH FERTILITY?

Acupuncture improves your neuroendocrine axis (the communication between your nervous and endocrine/hormonal systems), improves circulation to your uterus and ovaries, and dramatically reduces your stress – all of which benefits your fertility.

+ DOES ACUPUNCTURE HURT?

The needles are extremely thin and are inserted with a gentle technique.  People often don’t even realize when the needles are being inserted.

+ WHAT ABOUT HERBAL MEDICINE?

Herbal and plant medicine have been used for centuries for fertility and other conditions.  The can restored depleted energy, balance hormones, reduce inflammation and can have many other positive effects on your fertility.

+ DO YOU GIVE DIETARY RECOMMENDATIONS?

Absolutely.  You will receive specific nutritional recommendations based upon your unique needs and the unique needs of those trying to conceive.

+ HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO WORK?

The timeframe for results varies and we can definitely give you a more accurate estimate at your free consultation.  We’ve seen women get pregnant in as little as a month and as long as 12 months.  Everybody is different and the time varies.

+ WILL I HAVE TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME COMING IN FOR TREATMENTS?

Most of our patients achieve great results with coming in for treatments once or twice a week, depending on their unique needs.  

+ WHAT ARE MY CHANCES OF SUCCESS?

Your situation is unique and once we meet with you we will be able to give you our best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome.
