Conscious Conception is a fertility therapy that consists of healthy nutrition, healthy lifestyle and a healthy state of mind. The idea behind it is to be aware that all you do before and during conception - and while the baby is in the womb - affects the future of your unborn child.
Coupled with that foundation, the 'particulars' of any difficulty in becoming pregnant - either the future mom or the future dad - are dealt with in a natural way. Often times, an imbalance in the energy body is enough to cause infertility. With acupuncture these imbalances can be corrected. For issues that are more complex, herbal prescriptions are customized to assist healing.
Acupuncture therapy is perfectly compatible with Assisted Reproduction Therapy (ie: IVF, IUI) and, in fact, greatly increases the positive outcome of your substantial financial investment in ART therapy.
In my 8 years specializing in treating fertility issues with acupuncture and herbal medicine, I have seen a success rate of 85% with my patients. Many have followed my suggestion of going 'natural' instead of ART. Several others who were already committed to undergoing ART birthed healthy babies at their next transfer.
As I tell my patients, the goal is not simply to get pregnant. The loftier goal is to have a healthy child with a brilliant future.
