Chinese Medicine & Functional Medicine: A Perfect Pair
Women’s health and fertility were uncommon specialties when I first began my Chinese medicine career, but I devoured every bit of Chinese medicine wisdom I could find on the topic (34+ years later and I still obsess over learning everything I can about natural fertility!). I learned how Chinese medicine can help regulate our menstrual cycles, balance hormones, and provide a beautiful foundation for a healthy pregnancy.
Through my fertility studies, I discovered a new field of innovative, natural medicine: Functional Medicine. I knew that this field would help give me the ability to better help my patients conceive.
I studied with expert doctors to understand and prescribe a wide range of lab and hormone tests. I learned a new way to look at the body, medicine, and diet. With an even greater understanding of the reproductive system, I was able to finally understand why some of my patients weren’t conceiving – and which steps would lead us to better success.
Chinese medicine and functional medicine work perfectly together to enhance the body’s own ability to conceive by creating a healthy, fertile environment.
