Dr. Kathleen enjoys working with women to achieve pregnancy when there’s been difficulty due to infertility or previous miscarriages. She begins with a thorough history of your health, including previous cycles, your diet and interventions you previously tried.
One of the most rewarding parts of practice is helping a woman conceive through natural health methods. A variety of treatment approaches are considered, including acupuncture, chiropractic adjusting, and nutrition.
In Meridian Therapy (the proper term for acupuncture), the Chinese have a statement about infertility, “If the mother is not well nourished, you cannot nourish a child.”
Therefore, Dr. Kathleen looks at your overall health via nutrition and functional medicine and works with you on areas that need support. She uses acupuncture to balance your meridians so your body can start working in harmony. She may recommend Chiropractic manipulation, especially in the low back or sacroiliac joints since the sacral nerves supply the pelvic organs. If there is dysfunction or lack of communication between the nerves and the pelvic organs, chiropractic manipulation can be beneficial.
