How Much Time Will It Take ? How Will It Work?

"Nourishing The Soil Makes The Flowers Grow"

As with any medicine or even when doing IVF, there is no way for any healthcare provider, natural or conventional, to predict when or if you will become pregnant. However, we typically see positive pregnancy outcomes within 3 to 9 months of treatment. What we also see is if you eventually decide to try IUI or IVF, your body will be at its utmost potential, having higher quality eggs, uterine lining, balanced hormones and overall health due the to time put into treatment, that assisted reproductive technology outcomes will only be greater.

 


Chinese Medicine Has Been Treating Infertility for Over 2000 Years

Infertility treatment in Chinese medicine and gynecology dates back to 11 AD, which is over 2000 years ago. Some of the herbal formulas that are used today for fertility, hormonal balancing and gynecological issues are the same ones that were designed over 2000 years ago. What is so incredible about this is the time tested greatness of a medicine that has treated tens of millions of women through thousands of years of treatment. The treatment you will be receiving is practiced because it has successfully been used for women to have healthy babies for millennia and this is something that is a  very powerful connection when beginning with our program.

"We sincerely appreciated the help that Rebecca provided to us on our IVF journey. We sought out an acupuncturist to assist us with a successful pregnancy after years of heartache and turmoil- as we heard that it had a plethora of benefits overall. While we weren't expecting a miracle, it's exactly what took place. We are now pregnant with our bundle of joy and we couldn't be happier. While we can't guarantee the same outcome for everyone, what we can say is that Rebecca has a special way of connecting with you, practicing her wisdom and knowledge through her experience and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with her. She's professional, calming, and knows her stuff! We'd highly recommend her to anyone going through IVF/pregnancy!!"  Erica,35
