Why Fertility Is So Successfully Treated With Acupuncture and East-West Medicine

Treating Infertility with East-West Functional Medicine means state of the art treatments that take advantage of both Western Scientific Advances and the Safe, Effective, Natural, and Self-Sustaining Functional Approach of Eastern Medicine.  Eastern Functional Medicine includes Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine and is the only medicine in the world backed by 2,000 years of Written, Empirical Clinical Evidence to treat Infertility.  Modern Clinical Evidence documents that the Functional Medicine Approach of Traditional Chines Medicine will improve your chances of a successful pregnancy by 70% to 300%.

The Functional Medicine Approach of Tradition Chinese Medicine includes Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Herbology, Diet & Nutrition, Exercise, and Stress Management. Traditional Chinese Medicine rejuvenates the reproductive system by improving your Central Nervous System’s ability to balance hormones and improve circulation and lymphatic drainage in the ovaries and uterus. It is poor hormonal balancing, circulation and lymphatic drainage that cause bad eggs. A stressed lifestyle over years will reduce circulation in the uterus and ovaries by over 80% for a woman at age 35 vs. her sexual prime.  It takes roughly 150 days for a resting follicle to transform into an egg ready for fertilization. If that 150-day process is met with inadequate circulation, lymphatic drainage and poor hormonal balancing, it will produce what they call a “bad egg”. But it’s not the egg that’s bad. It’s the quality of the 150-day process. The wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine has documented evidence-based support to improve the process and will improve your chances of a successful pregnancy by 70% to 300%.  Given the wisdom of his experience, Dr. Barrett can guide you through the process with confidence.
