Chinese Food Therapy:
Similar to acupuncture and herbal medicine, Chinese food therapy has been used for thousands of years to treat illness and promote well being.  The diet is one of the most important components of health, as well as something that is within our ability to control and modify.

Acupuncturists are trained in Chinese diet therapy which incorporates time tested protocols on the best foods to eat for the specific health concerns you have including fertility.  In Chinese food therapy your individual constitution or body type is an influential backdrop in the determination of your treatment plan.

During a nutrition and herbal consult with one of our Licensed Acupuncturists a medical history will be taken and you will discuss your wellness goals with your Acupuncturist. He or she may take your pulse and look at your tongue to formalize a diagnosis. Your treatment plan will be based on your goals and the Chinese diagnosis given by the Acupuncturist. You will be guided on which foods, supplements and herbs to eat or avoid to help you achieve your wellness goals.

Chinese Herbs:
Chinese herbal formulas are selected using the same holistic approach to viewing the individual. Herbs can be used for many conditions including:

  • infertility
  • irregular period
  • painful period
  • endometriosis, fibroids, cysts
  • sperm and egg quality
  • cold/flu
  • allergies, sinusitis
  • digestive problems: IBS, ulcerative colitits, crohn’s, reflux
  • chronic pain or acute pain
  • arthritis
  • headaches
  • urinary tract infection (UTI), gallstones, kidney stones

If you are choosing to incorporate Chinese herbs, nutrition or supplements into your fertility path, it is best to allow time (typically at least 2-3 months) for the body to assimilate the benefits of these therapies.
