Acupuncture at Naturna for the New Year

It’s the start of a new year, which means new hopes, dreams, and perhaps resolutions as well. Maybe your resolution for the year is to eat healthier or go to the gym more often. After reading this blog, we hope you’d consider getting regular acupuncture treatments as part of your New Year’s resolutions for a healthier and better you in 2019.

Here are some benefits of receiving acupuncture treatment at Naturna, particularly in relation to enhancing fertility outcomes.  Acupuncture:

  • Improves circulatory function
  • Maintains hormonal balance
  • Boosts strength of reproductive system for reproductive success
  • Manages autoimmune conditions
  • Promotes positive fertility outcomes in conjunction with ART and IVF
  • Reduces bloating, anxiety, and digestive side effects of fertility medications

At Naturna, we provide individualized treatment for all our patients, and we strive to listen to each and every story to make sure we target the most pressing issues that our patients present to us. In addition to acupuncture treatments, we also offer nutritional and lifestyle counseling to help treat the following conditions:

  • Unexplained infertility
  • PCOS
  • Endometriosis
  • Polyps
  • Fibroids
  • Estrogen/progesterone balance
  • Inflammation

Furthermore, we incorporate Chinese medicine in our practice, which has been a successful way of treating fertility issues for over 3,000 years. That’s over 3,000 years of wisdom and success stories! Dedicated practitioners have recorded their treatments and clinical findings to help generations of doctors share their knowledge and build upon it. The acupuncturists at Naturna use incredibly effective Chinese medicine formulas that have been found in classics written a thousand years ago, so you can trust in the efficacy of the formulas we use.

Many of our formulas use traditional Chinese herbs in tincture or tea pill form. Following the philosophies of traditional Chinese medicine, our acupuncturists consider the Four Natures and Five Flavors of each herb when recommending a certain tincture or tea pill for you. The Four Natures are cold, hot, cool, or warm; each ailment of the body is associated with an excess or lack of one of these properties. The Five Flavors are pungent, sweet, sour, bitter, and salty. This is not talking about the “taste” of the herb, but rather the action that the herb takes on the body. With specialized knowledge regarding the best combinations of the Four Natures and Five Flavors, our acupuncturists will determine the herbal remedy specialized for your individual needs and presenting concerns.

With the combination of acupuncture, Chinese medicine, as well as nutritional and lifestyle counseling, we at Naturna will provide the most comprehensive treatment protocols to serve your unique fertility needs. We guarantee that you will be taken care of in this new year, and we will do our very best to help you with your New Year’s resolutions for a healthier you in 2019!
