Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine to Support Miscarriage Prevention
Getting pregnant and staying pregnant isn’t always as easy as we expect.
Fortunately, there is a lot we can do to reduce your risk and work to prevent miscarriage. I believe the best way to do that is by preparing the body in advance of conception. Acupuncture and herbal medicine are incredibly useful in helping rebalance the body and treat underlying risk factors.
I see the best results using Traditional Chinese Medicine to help prevent miscarriage when the following risk factors are involved:
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Hormone imbalance
- Low egg/sperm quality
- Clinical and sub-clinical thyroid imbalances
My treatment plans have the dual purpose of treating the above-mentioned risk factors while at the same time increasing blood flow to the uterus in order to nurture the uterine lining and encourage implantation.
Some woman may need advanced testing like blood work or imagining. In those cases, I work closely with local Reproductive Endocrinologists, OB/GYN’s, and Naturopaths so that patients are ensured the best possible comprehensive care.
