People ask me all the time what acupuncture is like. Does it hurt? Where do I place the needles? Does it work?
So to answer those questions, watch this video.
In all seriousness, acupuncture has been used for about 3,000 years.
Compare that to modern medicine which is only 100 years old.
That's like me eating 30 pizza slices to your one piece. Heartburn city but if they were NYC slices, well worth the pain.
Acupuncture has proven itself out in its loooooooong history.
So when to use what?
Modern medicine depends on the use of pharmaceutical drugs or surgery.
Drugs are great. They're fast. They work.
Just ask all the drug addicts out there.
Drugs are necessary for inseminations and IVF. You need a lot of eggs. You can't get that on your own. So you need the fertility drugs. That's fine.
Hmm but that's looking at your body as a pair of ovaries only.
What about the rest of your body?
That's where I come in as an acupuncturist.
Mind, body, spiritual health are important.
That phrase may be overused but it effectively sums up what you should be working towards.
I work with my patients to connect all those different aspects for a stronger foundation.
It's like a 3 legged stool. If one leg is deficient, you're going to have a hard time sitting your butt down.
If you're investing that much time, energy, and money into your fertility treatments, make the extra investment in a holistic approach to optimize your chances of success.
Many people have found incorporating acupuncture into their fertility treatment plan helps their outcome.
