At Triangle Acupuncture Clinic we have an entire team of acupuncturists devoted to treating and assisting couples throughout the infertility process. Through specialized acupuncture and herbal medicine programs, we work with couples seeking to enhance their natural fertility. We work closely with gynecologists and reproductive endocrinologists in the Triangle area integrating acupuncture with medical interventions such as Clomid, IUI and IVF cycles.
With board certification in Oriental Reproductive Medicine, our fertility acupuncture team uses current, specialized acupuncture and herbal medicine programs to enhance men and women’s natural fertility. Each practitioner brings unique skills to the program and continues to take advanced training to further their mastery of infertility treatment. Our mission is to help restore your fertility so that you can conceive naturally or increase your success rates if doing assisted therapies.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese herbs are potent medicinals and usually not found except by prescription from a qualified practitioner. They consist of plants, roots, flowers and leaves of specific plants grown in China and increasingly in more local and organic locations. Chinese herbal medicine is not well understood outside the eastern medicine community and so doctors and many patients are skeptical. Because of their long history of use for thousands of years and our very intense training and experience with them, we feel like they are an extremely useful part of a patient’s treatment plan.
We spend a lot of time evaluating diet in the Fertility Wellness Program. You are what you eat! But never before has it been more confusing to buy healthy groceries and prepare nutritious food. We hope you will find valuable tools within these pages to help you make better choices when deciding how to nourish yourself. We are firm believers that food should be fun and taste good, so fear not… you won’t find us recommending that you settle for boring tasteless health food.
Lifestyle and Relaxation
When a pregnancy isn’t happening, many of us think, “What could I do differently?” It is sometimes hard to take an objective look at your current lifestyle and identify which areas you could change or improve upon. With regard to relaxation, our approach is not to try to eliminate stress but to help you become a productive manager of your stress. With acupuncture we can negate the physical effects stress has inside our body and help you feel more balanced and calm. We know that stress reduction isn’t one size fits all and we’ll help you create tools that work for you at home.
