WOMEN'S HEALTH & INFERTILITY
Women's Health & Infertility
At Mulberry Leaf we have all the tools to help restore your optimal hormone levels, regulate your menstrual cycle and relieve symptoms of PMS, postpartum and menopause. We offer a well-rounded approach for fertility and are ready to work with you whether you are trying to conceive naturally or with the help of assisted reproductive technology. By combining Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, nutrition and supplements we provide safe treatment options to help you go through any phase of your female being.
Acupuncture works on neurological and endocrine levels to balance hormones; it increases circulation to the reproductive organs and improves their overall function. Adaptogenic herbs are used to work with your body and help you regulate important hormones and adapt to stress. At Mulberry Leaf we successfully treat irregular periods, endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, ovarian cysts, yeast infections, urinary tract infections, gastrointestinal discomfort, weight gain, acne, low libido and more.
At Mulberry Leaf we have a complete treatment plan that allows you to improve ovarian and uterine health. We recommend about 6-9 months of treatments. This time frame allows us to remove all the factors that might be toxic to the ovaries and uterus and introduce diet and herbs to nourish the eggs. It takes 3-4 months to improve egg quality, 2 months to improve the uterine lining, and continued acupuncture to regulate your cycle. If you are going through IVF treatments, weekly acupuncture for a month prior to the stimulation cycle helps improve egg quality, increase ovarian response, improve blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, as well as reduce stress. Frequent acupuncture in the beginning of the stimulation cycle will encourage more follicles to develop and encourage your body to work with the medications with few side effects. We recommend having acupuncture treatment within 48 hours of beginning the stimulation medications. Follow-up acupuncture IVF sessions are recommended every 3 days for a total of 3 treatments to support the stimulation process. We recommend adding nutritional IVF supplements to improve egg quality, ovarian response, and blood flow. At Mulberry Leaf we have carefully researched and carry only the highest quality nutritional supplements that enhance your reproductive health. In general, most of our patients conceive within 6-9 months, while others may take up to several years before they see results. We cannot guarantee your pregnancy, but we can guarantee you will be healthier after working with us.
At Mulberry Leaf we take care of mom-to-be as well as the baby. Prenatal period is a crucial time for fetal development and health of your future child. Regular Acupuncture treatments can help with morning sickness, pain, headaches, fatigue, heartburn and constipation to name a few.
We believe in natural course of events, as your body and a baby know better when the right delivery time is. However, Acupuncture can encourage smooth labor by softening the tendons and cervix, opening the pelvis and promoting productive contractions. Labor preparation treatments begin at week 36.
Chinese Medicine for centuries has emphasized the importance of postpartum period. It is one of the few windows of opportunity to either improve or damage your health. We know how overwhelming the time with a newborn can be but we highly recommend coming in at least a couple of times within the first 6 weeks after labor for your acupuncture appointment as well as an herbal consultation. Herbal formulas are effective to treat a variety of post-partum situations such as ensuring adequate milk supply.
Menopausal period is another crucial time in all women’s lives that opens a window of opportunity to change their health for better or worse. We encourage you to take your health more seriously during this period and make appropriate adjustments in your diet and lifestyle to set the right foundation for the years to come. At Mulberry Leaf we help women with great success to relieve symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, anxiety, mood swings, osteoporosis, bloating, vaginal dryness, low libido, weight gain, and many more.
