Show Notes

In this episode, we're covering one of our most frequently asked questions: "Dr. Shipe, is there anything I can do for my fertility concerns?"

The treatment of infertility with acupuncture and Eastern medicine dates back 2,000 years. These ancient, time-tested techniques improve fertility rates by supporting a woman's whole body - unlocking unlimited potential for health, healing - and childbearing. 

Researchers from Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York have concluded that acupuncture helps to:

  • Increase blood flow to the uterus, which improves the chances of an ovum implanting on the uterine wall
  • Reduce anxiety, stress, and the hormones secreted during stressful situations that can significantly decrease fertility
  • Normalize hormone and endocrine systems that regulate ovulation, especially in women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
  • Positively affect the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, which plays a crucial role in fertility
  • Regulate the menstrual cycle

Acupuncture and the modalities offered in our office can also support patients during their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. 

Every patient's needs are unique, as are our treatment plans. No two care plans are the same, but the first step for everyone starting their wellness journey at Women's Traditional Chinese Healing is to schedule a consultation where you'll meet with Dr. Shipe to discuss your health concerns and wellness goals. 

You can book a consultation online at www.traditionalchinesehealing.com/consultation or call our office at (772) 398-4550. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us! 

In the meantime, be sure to listen to our other episodes of "A Better Way to Health," where I'll teach you the foundational principles of TCM so that you know how to get and stay well throughout the different phases of your life. 

We're looking forward to welcoming you to our practice soon.
