Subtle medicine for a delicate system

The advantage of our program is that we do not use hormones to treat your issues. Taking hormones, while helpful in the short term, does not allow your body to “re-learn” its own natural process. Exogenous hormones merely cover up the root cause of the problem. In our experience, simple dietary, nutritional, and lifestyle changes are often enough to make a significant impact on hormonal output, response, and metabolism.

When you use natural therapies such as those we prescribe, you give your body the chance to truly heal. Of course, in some cases hormones may be necessary, but in most of those cases we have seen that lower doses are required due to the body’s increased response and improved metabolic efficiency.

The Process Is Simple

Free Initial Consultation

At your free initial consultation you’ll meet with your clinician to discuss your case, your medical history, any medications you’re taking, and most importantly YOUR GOALS. We want to be certain that our program is going to meet your needs and that there is a HIGH probability of success for you – BEFORE we move forward to the next step.

Detailed Assessment & Treatment Plan

Once your free consultation is complete, and we agree to move forward, your next step is the Intake appointment. At this appointment, your clinician will do a detailed assessment of your symptom pattern, medical history, and other factors to determine the root cause of your issue and devise a specific plan of attack.

Your first acupuncture session will be performed at this time, and a you will be given a treatment plan with exact, easy-to-follow instructions. Your treatment plan will include dietary and lifestyle adjustments as well as key supplements and herbal medicines to address the root of YOUR thyroid issue.

Active Treatment & Symptom Resolution

You’ll return for once-weekly visits to ensure close support as you begin to feel the positive shifts of the therapy. We want to make sure your treatment plan is yielding the expected results: 

  • Increased energy
  • Better sleep
  • Improved mental focus
  • Healthier skin and hair
  • Healthy metabolism and (if needed) weight loss

You’ll also receive acupuncture at each visit to ensure that your neuroendocrine system (the delicate connection between your nervous and hormonal systems) is rebalancing in a way that results in optimal thyroid function.

Transitional Care As Things Stabilize

Once we see stable improvements, we will begin to reduce the frequency of visits. This usually occurs after about 8-12 visits. Initially you’ll come every other week, then once a month for a couple of visits, then you will no longer need regular treatments.

We’ll be here in case you ever want to come in for a tune-up or to address other health concerns.

Of course, MANY of our patients do wish to continue with “ongoing maintenance” and we are happy to work that out with you, should that be your wish.

Taking Care Of Your Friends and Loved Ones

We pride ourselves on the fact that 80% of our new patients are referred to us by other patients or people in the community who have witnessed their friends and loved ones receive life-changing benefits from our work.

So, we very much look forward to helping YOUR friends, family, and loved ones on THEIR journey to a more joyful, energetic, purposeful life.

Common Questions

HOW DO YOU TREAT GYNECOLOGICAL ISSUES WITH NATURAL MEDICINE?

The subtle nature of the endocrine system responds very, very well to acupuncture, herbs, nutritional therapy, and mind-body medicine. In fact, in our opinion most women’s health issues are much better suited to our form of therapy than more forceful techniques like pharmaceuticals or surgery.

WILL I HAVE TO KEEP COMING FOREVER?

The great thing about our medicine is that we find the root cause of the problem and once it is addressed you no longer depend on our treatment.

DO YOU GIVE DIETARY RECOMMENDATIONS?

Absolutely. You will receive specific dietary recommendations based on your unique needs in addition to our diet plan that we’ve used for over a decade to help hundreds and hundreds of women just like you.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO WORK?

We’ve seen it take as little as hours (chronic pain, bleeding) to several days (PMS, menopausal symptoms). Everybody is different and the time prognosis varies. However, most of our patients feel better soon after their first couple of visits.

WHAT ARE YOUR SUCCESS RATES?

The vast majority of women who follow our treatment plan and complete their course of acupuncture visits report improvement in their symptoms.

WHAT ARE MY CHANCES OF SUCCESS?

Bottom line is that your situation is unique and once we meet with you we will be able to give you our best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome.

WHAT QUALIFIES YOU AS A SPECIALIST?

Our Director, Chris Axelrad, was in the first group ever certified by the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine – a specialty board for Acupuncturists dedicated to excellence in the practice of Reproductive Medicine.
