Acupuncture, Nutrition, and Infertility

I believe that Mother Nature has put on the Earth everything that we need to thrive and stay healthy. “Food as Medicine” is an important strategy in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), where specific foods are used for healing. When I counsel patients about nutrition, I do it from an Eastern (TCM) and Western perspective.

Vitamins and supplements can only take us so far–otherwise we could all just take pills and never have to eat, spend money at the grocery store, or cook. We need whole, nutritious food to nourish our bodies. Our bodies thrive when vitamins and minerals can be absorbed from the foods that they occur in naturally.
