Infertility is a growing concern in our modern population. With more women pursuing careers before marriage and family, the average age of first time mothers has steadily increased over the last several decades. It is an understandable desire to postpone motherhood, but unfortunately our biology doesn’t always cooperate. Fertility for women peaks between the ages of 20 to 24 with a dramatic decline after the age of 37. Enhancing fertility, regardless of your age, starts with a healthy, balanced body which is essential for advanced-age reproduction and for the health of your baby.
Traditional Chinese Medicine has a long history of enhancing fertility with the earliest treatments recorded over 1500 years ago. Today it is used as a primary therapy for women’s health and fertility as well as a supportive therapy to enhance western assisted reproductive technologies. If you have chosen to use western reproductive assistance such as IVF, Dr. Sievers is a credentialed acupuncturist with Reproductive Partners. Research shows that acupuncture combined with IVF can enhance outcomes by nearly 50 percent.
Whether you are pursuing pregnancy naturally or with assistance technologies, we are committed to partnering with you on your health journey to optimize your fertility. Based on traditional Chinese diagnostic methods and individual constitutional differences, Dr. Sievers will design a treatment plan to address hormonal imbalances and to fortify Qi (the body’s vital energy) and blood necessary for pregnancy. Nutritional and lifestyle factors are also evaluated with a special emphasize on stress management. By holistically balancing and strengthening your body, mind, and spirit, nature is supported in its miraculous impulse of reproduction.
