“Cultivate the soil before you plant the seed.”-Chinese proverb.
The health of a plant is dependent upon the quality of the soil. At 1000 Folded Cranes, our goal is to engender a healthy and advantageous body environment, which optimizes the quality of the egg at conception, as well as providing a blood rich uterine lining favorable for implantation and for nourishing a growing fetus for the full pregnancy. Whether you decide to use Traditional Chinese Medicine as your first choice for fertility or in conjunction with Western medicine, Clomifene protocols, or other assisted reproductive technology (ART), acupuncture has been clinically shown to improve results in take-home baby rates.
We have successfully treated infertility issues in many cases such as high FSH (Follicle Simulating Hormone), Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), Endometriosis, Ovulation problems, unexplained infertility, poor ovarian reserve, poor egg quality, luteal phase defect, thin endometrium, irregular periods and amenorrhea.
While Western protocols believe that getting pregnant is a numbers game, our guiding principle is first and foremost creating a health internal milieu.
However, the more you try, naturally or with Assisted Reproductive Technologies (IVF/IUI), the better your chances. This applies to Acupuncture as well – the longer you allow it to correct and balance your body, the better your chances are to conceive and carry a healthy baby through full term pregnancy. The body chooses its peak follicle three months in advance.
Most protocols therefore take at least three cycles to be successful. Consistent weekly treatment is crucial so that specific hormonal adjustments can be made at each week of the cycle using acupuncture and herbs. Every week is a significant opportunity to heal a particular aspect of the four-phase menstrual cycle-menstruation, follicular phase, ovulation, and luteal phase.
