“Hi Erin, I left voice message but I’m texting just in case. Two of the three embryos are chromosomal normal!!!!!! I know you played an important part in this, and I cannot thank you enough!” -NJ, Micanopy FL, who started with us after two failed cycles with no viable embryos.

Success of IVF (and IUI) depend just as much on the state of your body as does success without these techniques. Healthy response to drugs, optimum egg quality, and a receptive uterine lining are essential for a high probability of pregnancy and healthy delivery of a baby.

Are you ready?

Is your body ready to support and nourish a new life? IVF and IUI are magnificent tools for overcoming difficulties with fertilization/conception, but they do very little to overcome subtle issues with circulation, inflammation, and other blockages that may be preventing you from conceiving and carrying to term.

Take time to prepare your body to receive and nourish the tiny seed of life. If your body is ready, you will have much higher chances for a successful outcome. If your body is not ready, all the drugs and surgery in the world will have very little chance of helping you.

The benefits of our IVF/IUI prepartion program

1. Your body is better prepared to handle the process

IVF/IUI can be stressful, not just for the mind and emotions, but for the body as well. Using customized Acupuncture, customized herbal medicines (given BEFORE not DURING your injection cycle), and nutritional guidance, we take time to make sure your body and mind are as resilient as possible BEFORE you start the ovarian stimulation protocols. A vital, healthy body and balanced, calm mind ensure that ovarian response is maximized and unwanted side-effects are minimized.The principle of IVF/IUI preparation is simple — your body needs the resources and resilience to respond effectively and efficiently to the stimulation given by the fertility drugs. Make sure it is ready to go… AND that it has the endurance to finish.

2. Your side-effects from medications are reduced

Because your body is more balanced and resilient BEFORE you start your IVF/IUI cycle, the side effects are minimized. We have seen countless IVF/IUI patients, and we can say unequivocally that the vast majority of them who had done previous cycles without our program reported a significant reduction in bloating, moodiness, tiredness, and other common side-effects of ovarian stimulation.

3. Weekly one-on-one, individualized coaching and support

We teach you powerful mind-body techniques to help you connect with reserves of spiritual energy you never knew you had. It is our firm belief that regardless of medical intervention, there is always a spiritual component to the process of bringing new life into the world. Our mind-body training is designed to support and encourage this spiritual process.

In our experience, here are the changes we routinely see in patients who come to us for IVF Support:

  • Less stress during the cycle
  • Improved response to stimulation drugs
  • Better fertilization rates
  • Higher pregnancy rates
  • Lower miscarriage rates

Yes, it’s true. When you support your body, it supports you in return… We have seen it countless times here in the clinic.

Why our IVF Optimization and Support works so well....

We Awaken Your Body’s Natural Healing Systems

Despite what you have been told, you can heal yourself of pain and heavy menstruation.  Our bodies make their own anti-inflammatory and pain relieving substances, and our treatments help them do exactly that.    We provide the support for your own natural healing capabilities.

We Keep It Simple

Our targeted natural solutions are simple.  They are easy.  Our lifestyle and diet recommendations are basic.  Our bodies want balance and the path of least resistance is often the most effective way to health so we keep our treatment plans streamlined which make for an optimal response in our patients’ health.

We use a gentle approach.

Our reproductive hormonal cascade can be influenced and brought into balance by even the most gentle and benign of treatments and lifestyle changes.  We find that most women respond quite well to our very simple and elegant natural approaches.

*Individual results vary. No guarantee of specific results is warranted or implied and your results will depend on many factors (full disclaimer).

Here is How We Help You :

FREE Consultation: We invite prospective patients in for a complementary consultation in which we review the background of your health concerns, answer questions you have regarding our philosophy and process as well as establishing your goals so we can be sure we devise a 100% customized and targeted plan to get you the best results in the most efficient way possible.

UNCOVER the Root and DISCOVER Potential Obstacles: Next, we book your Case Review and Initial Session. Your clinician will perform a full health history and ask detailed questions about your symptom pattern to determine potential lifestyle factors or emotional factors that may be inhibiting your body’s own healing response. Your first acupuncture session will follow the case review.

CREATE Your Unique Plan:  You will be given an easy-to-follow treatment plan that will include a combination of the following therapies: weekly acupuncture session, targeted nutritional supplements, botanical formulas, relaxation exercises and diet and lifestyle recommendations.

ACTIVE Treatment and Symptom Resolution: Your treatment plan will initially include bi-weekly or weekly acupuncture treatments along with botanical prescriptions. We track adjustments in your menstruation irregularities as well as other changes indicative of hormonal regulation such as:

  • Better quality of sleep
  • Increased sense of well-being
  • Increased Energy


ENSURE Lasting Results: Once we’ve achieved a more normalized menstruation cycle with pain relief, we’ll gradually reduce the frequency of the treatments, to ensure that your results last. This usually occurs after about 12 treatments. You will first “graduate” to every other week, and then once a month for a few visits. Eventually, you will be on a “tune-up” basis, where you come in approximately 4 times a year, to maintain health and prevent slipping back into old health patterns. Of course, many patients prefer to stay on a more frequent maintenance plan and if that is your preference, we can work with you on that as well.

TAKING Care Of Our Tribe: We love that the majority of our patients sought our help as referrals from other patients and friends of ours who have experienced profound healing at our clinic.  Our goal is to help as many of your friends and family members as possible and to share the deep level of healing that is possible through our work.

I take herbal supplements at home like turmeric and echinacea.  Is that what you give to people?

Chinese botanicals are not supplements and they are rarely given as a single, standalone herb.  Chinese herbs are usually prescribed as a formula that are designed to address various symptoms at once, and can be modified to your particular issues.  The constituents of these formulas have very specific synergies with one another and by removing or omitting one, you can disrupt the therapeutic effect of the entire formula. Chinese Herbs should only be taken under the supervision of a practitioner who is nationally certified in either Chinese Herbology or Oriental Medicine by the NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine).  

How do I know it works?

Not only have studies shown that irregular menstruation can be improved with acupuncture and herbs, but we have experience and have seen this first hand. We have helped people with severe menstrual bleeding be able to function and go about their lives without having to be worried on a monthly basis.

What if I’ve had irregular periods all my life?  Can it still help me?

Yes.  We have treated people with long term menstrual irregularities who were able to experience significant and even total relief.

Is natural medicine REALLY powerful enough to stop cure my Irregular and Painful Periods?

Natural medicine actually helps your body make more of its own medicine, which is more powerful and potent than any man-made medicine.

Is Acupuncture Safe?

Yes.  We use sterile, single use acupuncture needles. In the hands of experienced and trained practitioners, treatments are virtually risk-free. Side effects such as mild bruising is fairly un-common. However, positive side-effects include: overall sense of well-being, better sleep, a deep relaxed state and a reduced level of stress.

Is herbal medicine save?

Compared with conventional, Western drugs, Chinese herbal medicine has few side effects, when a professional, licensed herbalist is devising and administering the formula.  

Will I have to keep coming forever?

Many patients experience a complete resolution of painful periods and see a more regulated cycle within 3-4 months.  After that, many choose to come in for regular maintenance visits.  But, our goal is to get you to where you no longer need treatments and will be so happy with your results you’ll send us all your friends and family.

How long does it take to see results?

People often feel a shift after their very first treatment.  However, long lasting results will usually take longer.   We inform patients to expect about a month to see significant changes and, for most people, bi-weekly visits in the beginning stage of treatment is recommended.
