Integrative Medicine For A Holistic Fertility Approach
IHR combines the advanced science and technology of reproductive medicine with the ancient wisdom and holistic approach of acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine, providing patients with the most integrated approach to fertility treatment in Chicago.
Why Fertility Acupuncture?
Fertility acupuncture has many potential benefits before/during/after fertility treatment. Acupuncture may assist in unblocking stasis, regulating/promoting healthy blood flow, restoring harmony and balance on a mental-emotional level and helping to resolve lingering imbalances that may impede the body from reaching its fullest fertile potential. At IHR we deliver a level of care that is extraordinary. Our team of Fertility Experts is here to support you every step of the way. We look forward to working with you!
The Defining Principles of Integrative Medicine
- Our patients and practitioners are partners in the healing process.
- All factors that influence health, wellness, and disease are taken into consideration, including mind, spirit, and community, as well as the body.
- Effective interventions that are natural and less invasive should be used whenever possible.
- Good medicine is based on good science. It is inquiry-driven and open to new paradigms.
