Lifestyle Suggestions to Enhance Your Fertility Potential

By Dr. Jing Chen, L.Ac., DAOM, Dipl.OM, FABORM

Here are eight areas of your life that you can work on to enhance the likelihood of conceiving and supporting a healthy pregnancy and baby.

STOP SMOKING
Active and passive smoking increase the time it takes to get pregnant, increase the loss of ovarian follicles, bring on earlier menopause, increase the odds of miscarriage and increase genetic defects in babies. In men, smoking is associated with decreased sperm count, motility, shape, and function.

Natural Solutions for PMS

By Stephanie Yong, L.Ac., Dipl.OM

It is normal to have mild breast tenderness, slight bloating or achiness a few days before your period, but what if these become more severe or are accompanied by a myriad of other physically uncomfortable and emotionally disruptive symptoms? This cyclical occurrence of symptoms is referred to as Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). Some examples of PMS symptoms are depression, irritability, anxiety, fatigue, insomnia, diarrhea or constipation, acne, food cravings, headaches, low back pain, and cramps. PMS can have a dramatic effect on your quality of life, force you to make abrupt changes in your schedule and can even undermine your confidence.

A Fertility Story of Tragedy and Triumph

By Jason Moskovitz, L.Ac., Dipl.OM

Miscarriage is one of the more heartbreaking issues to confront for couples that are struggling to start a family. Traditional Chinese medicine views each person and their miscarriage history individually, allowing for a customized solution, often integrating with other medical interventions. Certain hormonal imbalances or circulatory blockages that lead to miscarriage can be corrected with acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, exercise, and meditation. The right combination and timing of chosen modalities, together with a diligent patient, can yield seemingly miraculous results by optimizing the human body’s ability to create a new life.

LET GO WITH A NATURAL DETOX

By Jason Moskovitz, L.Ac., Dipl.O.M.

Every few months, participants convene at Tao of Wellness to undergo a complete detoxification during our three-day weekend retreats. In designing the Tao of Wellness Cleansing and Detoxification program, our doctors drew upon centuries-old Traditional Chinese Medicine principles to solve modern problems. Chemical-laden food and a polluted environment can lead to many serious illnesses such as: cancer, degenerative diseases, infertility, and genetic changes. People also detoxify to prepare for pregnancy, to quit addictions, to stimulate creativity or to purge lingering illnesses.

The Challenge of a Healthy Heart

By Edsel Tan, L.Ac.

The heart is the monarch of all organs. It pumps blood every moment of our lives, nourishing our living tissue with nutrients and oxygen. Pumping is caused by a flow of electricity through the heart that cyclically repeats itself. Nurturing the heart nurtures the body as a whole. This is a challenge in today’s society as heart disease is one of the leading causes of illness.
