What Our Patients Say

After just one month of working with Christina, I got my first period in years, and about a year later my cycle started to come regularly.

L.K.

"I came to Naturna at 37 after two miscarriages and a year and a half of trying to conceive again. I began treatment the first week of January and by the end of March we conceived naturally!"

Lizzie S

"I am eight months pregnant. I attribute everything to the Naturna regimen of acupuncture, herbs, supplements, and lifestyle changes; they aligned my body and perspective on life."

Emily J

A.K.

I highly recommend the Naturna regimen, which supported my ultimately successful pregnancy at 42.”

C.C.

“Naturna is definitely a go-to when I need to recharge energy, balance my body, and generally destress.”

Gina

“When I look at my daughter, I can’t help but think of Christina and our incredible journey. Christina Burns was the sunshine brought to my angst-filled world of infertility!”

Kirsten

I am eight months pregnant. I attribute everything to the Naturna regimen of acupuncture, herbs, supplements, and lifestyle changes; they aligned my body and perspective on life.

S.L.

“I would strongly recommend Naturna to anyone who is looking to supplement their standard IVF treatment with alternative methods in an effort to maximize your chances for a positive outcome.”

D.R.

“Naturna saved me during my pregnancy by assisting with my sleep, back pain, skin irritations; the list goes on. I was fortunate to have a very easy delivery and I strongly believe this was a result of the preparation.”

D.P.

“I was quickly impressed by how far-reaching Christina’s knowledge base was. Time after time, IVF failure after failure, she was there with me afterwards, thinking about a new path to pursue. I’m happy to say that after many years, I was successful. For me, she helped with lifestyle and infertility issues, but I’m confident that she would be an invaluable help to anyone.”

P.H.

I met Christina three years ago when she was speaking at a nutrition seminar for infertility. I had been struggling to have a baby after suffering a miscarriage and I was interested in trying a holistic approach along with IVF treatments. Christina is very, very knowledgeable about Eastern medicine and nutrition, and working in conjunction with my IVF cycles, she tried different methods including herbs and supplements along with acupuncture. She also treated me for other ailments. Fast forward to 2015: with her help and IVF, at the age of 45, I delivered a baby girl (using my own eggs) on Christmas Eve! I strongly recommend Naturna if you are struggling with infertility. She helped my husband and I achieve a dream we never thought we could.”

S.L.P.

“My main purpose in working with Naturna was to increase my chances of getting pregnant. At 44, and after over two years of fertility treatments, I am pregnant for the first time and I believe that my work with Naturna helped this happen. Christina taught me to relax and care for my mind and body so that I could reach this monumental moment in my life.”

Kirsten

“I was very adamant to try to get pregnant ‘naturally’. Christina embodies the epitome of a holistic perspective, helping me balance both my life and body on a path I will follow for the rest of my life. I am eight months pregnant. I attribute everything to the Naturna regimen of acupuncture, herbs, supplements, and lifestyle changes.”

Lizzie S

“I met Christina at 37 after two miscarriages and a year and a half of trying to conceive again. At my doctor’s recommendation, before starting IVF treatment, I decided to give my body a break. I began treatment the first week of January and by the end of March we conceived naturally! Since I started working with Christina, numerous friends and family members have started seeing her. Two of my girlfriends are now pregnant. Others dealing with PCOS and menopausal issues rave about her.”

A.K.

I highly recommend Christina for her acupuncture skills, which supported my ultimately successful attempt at pregnancy at 42.  I originally met her through my fertility clinic as she was the only acupuncturist with access to do treatments pre- and post-IVF. She was amazing at helping me navigate the bureaucracy of the clinic.”

C.C.

“Christina treated my ‘moody self’ for the whole nine months of pregnancy. If today my boy is calm, balanced, healthy, and happy, I owe a big part of it to her and her treatments. She is extremely delicate in handling all the ups and downs you might be going through with knowledge and warmth. She is definitely a go-to when I need to recharge energy, balance my body, and generally destress.”

Rachel

“I went through two IVF cycles. I did not receive acupuncture regularly during the first and did not complete that cycle. I came to Naturna every week during the second cycle and had a successful pregnancy.”

A.H.

I started acupuncture and dietary counseling because I wanted to know that I was doing everything possible to get pregnant. Like many NYC women, I am type A and like to be prepared. Fertility can sometimes be maddening because you really don’t have all that much control. Seeing Christina provided me with some ‘X-ray’ glasses to see a bit more clearly and manage the anxiety which can come with the unknown.”

L.K.

“After years of being on birth control, I stopped getting my periods. Since I also had a history with eating disorders, I was worried something was wrong, so I sought out multiple doctors to see what was going on with my body. Eventually, I saw an endocrinologist who, after taking various sonograms of my uterus and ovaries, concluded that I had amenorrhea and would likely never menstruate on my own without medical intervention. He gave me a prescription for hormones that is normally reserved for menopausal women. The sentiment was that I basically had to come to terms with the fact that I may only get pregnant through IVF, if at all….

My sister, though, had similar issues to mine stemming from PCOS and had recommended that I see Christina at Naturna Institute, before taking the artificial hormone route. Apparently, Christina had helped her regulate her periods and get pregnant. I was extremely hesitant at first after what every previous doctor I met recommended. Ultimately, though, I thought it may be a good idea to dedicate some time to try to fix my issues naturally through acupuncture, changing my diet, and Chinese herbs.

I can’t emphasize enough how grateful I am for that decision! After just one month of working with Christina, I got my first period in years, and about a year later my cycle started to come regularly.

Through my experience, I understand how hopeless one can feel given what the doctors said. I now make it a point to tell every woman I come into contact with of my experience, especially those who have similar issues. It was the best decision I could have ever made, and I am just so grateful I had my sister lead me to it. I hope anyone reading this realizes there absolutely are natural alternatives for them as well, regardless of how hopeless they feel their situation may seem.”
