Fertility Program in Santa Cruz
After much hard work and collaboration, we are pleased to announce the launching of our People’s Fertility Program. We pooled the expertise of five practitioners into creating a thorough and effective fertility package. Our program gets to the heart of any nutritional deficiencies and hormone imbalances, addresses diet and lifestyle shifts to increase success, and includes tried and true acupuncture and ear seed protocols from some of the most renowned fertility experts in China, Taiwan, Bali, and the US.
Our program is 12 weeks in duration and synthesizes the best practices from both Chinese Medicine and Functional Medicine. Acupuncture alone has proven to increase the success of conception and full-term, healthy pregnancies, through dozens of peer-reviewed research studies worldwide. As a supportive method for other Fertility treatments such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF), acupuncture, with comprehensive diet and lifestyle coaching, has proven to increase success rates as much as 60%. Many clinics offer acupuncture to increase fertility rates. Our program is unique however, in that we add in the expertise of functional medicine and nutrition to ensure that your body has the building blocks it needs to grow and sustain a healthy egg, embryo, fetus, and eventually... baby!
The People’s Fertility Program consists of the following elements:
Full 90-minute initial intake with acupuncture treatment, where we will review your labs, explore a thorough health history, do a differential TCM diagnosis, and design a personalized twelve-week treatment plan
