Holistic Approaches to Postpartum Health

Postpartum and AcupuncturePostpartum and acupuncture, Why choose acupuncture?

Dr. Randy has the answers to the many questions his clients ask.

Q: I have heard that acupuncture can be used to treat postpartum health issues, but I’m so afraid of needles! What do you suggest?

A: To be quite honest, needles sometimes seem scary.  But the needles used for acupuncture are so thin that you could even put one inside the hole of a regular needle used for blood tests. They are about the size of a strand of hair, and so you hardly even feel them.

Q:    If I definitely don’t want acupuncture, what other options are there for treatment of postpartum issues?

A:    Luckily, we can design a perfectly effective treatment program using Classical Homeopathy, Chinese Herbs or Nutritional Supplements.

Q:    Do you do testing to determine what my exact problem actually is?

A:    Most definitely!   We do blood, saliva, and urine testing if you like the scientific approach and have not already been tested before you come to me.

Q:   Can acupuncture and homeopathy also help emotionally if I feel depressed and am full of fear?

A: Absolutely! Acupuncture and homeopathic medicine are both very successful at increasing endorphins, the body’s own naturally-occurring stress-relievers. Because acupuncture works on the energy of the mother and baby, it not only affects the mom physically, but can also relax her energetically and reduce her stress levels.   If you are nursing, then the homeopathic remedies you take will also positively affect your baby.   I have had hundreds of women come in feeling depressed and tired after giving birth.  After treatment, they all have said they have their “get up and go” again.
