What are Superfoods and how do they impact fertility?
We all know some basic advice on how to get pregnant. Don’t smoke or drink. Take a pre-natal vitamin. This is fine for someone who is young, has good ovarian reserve, and has no complicating reproductive issues. But if you are older, have been trying to conceive without success, or have health issues your body may need more. Superfoods are foods which are packed with antioxidants, and provide your body with the energy it needs to support a pregnancy. The added nutritional support normalizes hormone function to aid in conception.
A key part of many acupuncture treatments is the use of Chinese herbs to correct imbalances within the body. These may be a result of a diagnosed fertility issue or a more subtle, sub-clinical imbalance. Our herbs are GMP certified and lab tested to insure that they are free of heavy metals and microbial contaminants.
