Testimonials – Women’s Health and Fertility

Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine has helped many women through health issues, menstrual problems, fertility, and pregnancy.

After years of unsuccessfully trying to conceive, Lorraine gave me renewed hope of a baby when I had run out of other options with traditional medicine. It was wonderful to receive caring and personalized attention in a compassionate and positive atmosphere. My beautiful baby girl just turned a month old and I will be forever thankful for the benefits I received from acupuncture with Lorraine.

After trying to get pregnant for a year, and subsequently being diagnosed with PCOS (Polycycstic Ovarian Syndrome), I knew I didn’t want to try conventional medication and gave myself time to lose weight and increase fertility through acupuncture. I began working with Lorraine immediately following my diagnosis. Over the course of 7 months, I continued acupuncture regularly, used the herbs Lorraine recommended, and coupled with a diet and exercise routine supported by acupuncture and Lorraine’s guidance, lost about 25 pounds. With consistency to my routine, I was able to conceive naturally and am now expecting my first baby in the summer of 2013.

My husband and I had been trying to conceive for almost 2 years before we started acupuncture treatments with Lorraine. After just 3 months of weekly treatments I was pregnant! I kept receiving treatments throughout my pregnancy and we now have a healthy and happy 10 month old baby girl. I truely believe that the treatments I received were what made are healthy little girl possible.  We will definatley be going back to Lorraine when try to conceive are second child.

After two consecutive miscarriages followed by eight months of infertility, I turned to Lorraine as an alternative to synthetic hormones and medicine prescribed by my OBGYN.  She is the perfect combination of compassionate and knowledgeable.  She always listened so carefully and provided personalized care that helped me realize my optimal health.  After three months of treatments, I became pregnant! She helped me through the first trimester, when both subsequent miscarriages happened, and helped me prepare for birth in the last few weeks.  I delivered a healthy, full-term baby boy, and will forever be grateful!

Just wanted to update you! I am pregnant and will be 24 weeks tomorrow!! This last IVF cycle was obviously successful and we had 3 embryo’s to freeze- my best cycle ever! I am thinking they were my 90 day eggs- after I finished treatment with you! LOL!

So far I have had a great pregnancy- no sickness- just growing! It has been great!
Thank you so much!

I know it has been awhile since you heard from me. I want to thank you and share some good news. On 11/18/10 found out that I’m pregnant and it was done all natural on tcm. It would not have happened without you. Thank you,

I just wanted to send you a really really belated thank you for the care I received from you last year.  I was having several issues like stomach problems, headaches, sleeping difficulties, and lack of regular periods.  Anyways, you helped all of those things and I got pregnant and had a totally complication free pregnancy.  I just delivered a healthy baby boy last Thursday, and we’re doing great.  You are a wonderful practitioner, and you offer great advice!  Thanks for everything!  Hope you’re doing well.

Hi Lorraine, We are doing great.  Getting a bit more sleep these days and settling a bit more into our roles as parents.  Luke will be one in about 2 weeks.  I can’t believe it.  He is an absolute joy and we are amazed daily with just about everything he does.  He is the love of our life thanks in part to all that you did to heal my body and make it acceptable for life.

Hi Lorraine.  Just wanted to let you know that my MD appt went well.  The baby appears well and moving a lot on ultrasound.  It was amazing!  The beautiful baby point you’ve been using must be working because it (the baby) is measuring 2 weeks larger than it really is.  My husband is hoping for an NBA player ha ha.

I was told I had PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome).  I had been on all the fertility drugs (like clomid) to treat this and still felt totally out of wack and I couldn’t get pregnant.  The first time, after many years, I began to actually feel healthy again was when I was seeing Lorraine for a special type of acupuncture treatment and Chinese fertility herbs.  I’m now the proud mom of two healthy boys!

Sally M

I had all the routine tests come back negative but I was still feeling lousy.  I was depressed, overweight, my periods were irregular and painful, I had bloating and a host of odd symptoms.  All that was being offered to me were drugs and/or surgery.  I didn’t want to go either route so I thought I’d try acupuncture.  I now feel so much more balanced.  I’m almost scared to ever stop treatments because I don’t want to go back to the way I felt before.

It’s only been a few weeks and amazingly I’ve returned to my normal energized self and all the discomforts of my period have disappeared. I don’t know if it was your acupuncture or the Chinese herbs, but something did it.

Donna P.

Lorraine, here’s some news for you…My hot flashes are all but gone! Yea!!! There’s still something that happens…I’ll feel like one’s about to start, but I just get barely warm, with no perspiration. I can report that when I awake at night, I don’t get hot enough to throw the covers off…and that’s a huge improvement! So, I’m thoroughly thrilled with our results so far!! Just thought you’d like to know! Thanks!

For nearly a year my menstrual periods have been inconsistant. My last period had been 3 months overdue when I went for my first acupuncture treatment. Within 2 weeks my period returned. Even though the period wasn’t completely normal, I’m hopeful that things will continue to improve.

You were the first person I told that I was pregnant because I couldn’t believe it.  We had been through so many failed tries with western medicine (invitro fertilization), I wanted to be sure before telling anyone.  I’m almost 40 and I thought I had run out of time.  I needed to find a way to increase my fertility.  I can’t believe it took only a few weeks of treatment.
