Tonight I will discuss how and why I became an acupuncturist and my decision to specialize in reproduction. I will present a case study of a 42 year old patient who became pregnant using acupuncture without IUI or IVF - fascinating to say the least and if you have been unsuccessful in conceiving this is a show you won't want to miss.
I am a Licensed Acupuncturist & Nationally Board Certified Herbalist and the director of The Berkley Center for Reproductive Wellness, a focal point for natural fertility treatment in New York City. Studies show using acupuncture with IVF or IUI significantly increases the chances of conceiving.
The Berkley Center is world renowned for treating reproductive disorders with acupuncture, and natural fertility medicine. Our approach has been shown to be very effective in treating infertility when related to endometriosis, PCOS, high FSH, low sperm count, sperm DNA fragmentation, low ovarian reserve and even advanced maternal age. We have an East meets West approach to care which means that in most cases we are treating patients in conjunction with a reproductive endocrinologist.
At the The Berkley Center for Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine our patients are treated with kindness, warmth and compassion. We are a people-oriented healthcare center located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan; not a factory.
Infertility affects between 15% and 20% of the U.S. population; this is a very real and traumatic issue – the time is right to educate couples on the benefits of using complementary medicine in conjunction with traditional Western medical protocols.
