Fertility Just For You

At Alpenglow Acupuncture, we create an individualized fertility treatment plan to help guide you from where you are to where you want to be. We work with you wherever you are on your fertility journey, from just starting out to support through an IVF cycle, and anywhere in between. Our aim is to get you into your best health possible so that you can create and sustain a healthy pregnancy.

our Individualized, Comprehensive Treatment plans are guided by the principle that “life creates life”

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. It is with this principle in mind that we have developed our natural fertility enhancement program which incorporates detailed acupuncture, herbal, nutritional, and mind-body protocols tailored to your individual needs. Statistics show that approximately one in six to ten couples will experience issues with conception and fertility. The imbalances which can cause difficulty in conception can often be corrected by very subtle, natural adjustments to the endocrine system. These subtle changes are attained with an expert combination of customized herbal medications, acupuncture therapy, and lifestyle adjustments.

A few of our success stories

A 40 year old nursing administrator with PCOS who had irregular cycles once she went off the pill. After helping to regulate her cycles and reduce stress, she got pregnant naturally.

A 34 year old opera singer who had been a regular patient for years asked us for help in getting pregnant. With a history of blood clots, it was uncertain if she could keep and maintain a pregnancy safely. With concurrent care of a specialized OB/GYN, she is now proud mama to a beautiful baby girl.

A 33 year old nurse and midwife student with recurrent early miscarriages and unexplained infertility was about to start IVF when she finally conceived and held the pregnancy naturally.

Our Program

Our fertility enhancement program is designed to support your body’s innate intelligence and harmonize the delicate balance of your fertility cycle. We incorporate a detailed holistic analysis of your unique constitution and combine it with information gleaned by your laboratory results. It is our view that by combining holistic and scientific 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:

  • A detailed intake consultation to pinpoint the type, source, and cause of disharmony in your fertility cycle.

  • Development of a customized treatment plan that addresses the symptoms as well as the cause of your fertility issues.

  • Regular acupuncture treatments designed to support and encourage proper balance at every stage of the fertility cycle.

  • Customized herbal prescriptions tailored to your individual needs, targeted to maximize each phase of your cycle.

  • A targeted nutritional support regimen that is designed to nourish and balance blocked and depleted glands, and that is grounded in biomedical knowledge and research.

  • Mind-body exercises, meditations, and lifestyle guidance that leverage the amazing power of the mind and emotions.

A comprehensive approach

Whether a mother-to-be opts for 100% natural or technologically assisted conception, natural fertility enhancement offers a much-needed element – the element of holistic, individualized care. While conventional medicine is king in terms of scientific research and complex microscopic procedures, our unique blend of Nutritional Therapy, Herbal Medicine, and Acupuncture is unmatched in its understanding and application of treatment that addresses the entirety of body, mind and spirit.

Body, mind and spirit are part of a single, organic whole. Any attempt at healing and wholeness must by definition address all three of these vital aspects of the human being. In other words, the state of hormonal balance and function, and the structure of organs and tissues, influence and are influenced by life experiences, emotional tendencies, thought patterns, and daily habits. Where conventional medicine often seeks to eliminate mind and spirit as “confounding variables” which skew the results of experiments, our holistic approach includes them as a matter of fundamental principle.

A win-win for fertility patients

There is no way for any healthcare provider, natural or conventional, to predict when or if you will become pregnant. That being said, our success rates have proven to be between 50-60% within 3 to 6 months of treatment for women between the ages of 35-39, and 30-40% for women 40 and up.

And, those of our patients who opt for IVF experience success rates of 60% or more. We believe that is because their bodies are more prepared to successfully respond to the IVF treatment.

FAQs

HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE HELP WITH FERTILITY?

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

WHAT ABOUT HERBS?

Herbal medicines have been used for fertility issues for centuries. They restore depleted glands, balance your endocrine system, reduce inflammation and have many other positive effects on your reproductive function.

DO YOU GIVE DIETARY RECOMMENDATIONS?

Absolutely. You will receive specific dietary recommendations based on your unique needs and preferences.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO WORK?

We’ve seen it take as little as 4 weeks and as long as 12 months. Everybody is different and the time prognosis varies.

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.

Gentle, Painless

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the most powerful ways to naturally stimulate your body’s internal healing process. Within a treatment, your body gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues. Acupuncture harnesses the vast healing intelligence your body contains to help you heal faster.

Herbal Medicine

Herbs simultaneously cure and strengthen the body. This dual action is something unique to herbal medicine that makes it very well suited to treat chronic and non-life threatening conditions like migraine, PMS, menstrual difficulties, menopausal symptoms, hormonal imbalance, and reproductive issues.

Functional Nutritional Therapy

You'll receive a clear, easy-to-follow nutritional plan. When your cells, glands, and tissues are fully nourished with the specific nutrients they need they naturally function at a very high level. This means you feel your best because your body’s key systems are optimized.

Relaxation and Stress Reduction

When your nervous system is calm, your hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means more hormonal balance, less inflammation, better circulation and nutrient absorption.
