I had the pleasure of chatting with Chris Axelrad, a specialist in hormonal, mind-body, and reproductive wellness using Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Therapeutic Nutrition, and Mind-Body Coaching. He is on the Governing Board of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM), a specialty board dedicated to excellence in holistic fertility care. He is certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) in Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, and Chinese Bodywork. After receiving his Master’s Degree in Oriental Medicine in 2003, Mr. Axelrad completed extensive graduate and post-graduate studies not only in Traditional Chinese Medicine, but also Western endocrinology, psychoneuroimmunology, neuroendocrinology, nutrition, mind-body disciplines, and interpretation of lab results. Chris has been a guest writer on PCOS Diva. See his article here.
Listen to the 30 minute interview below to hear more about how Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture can help you manage your PCOS, as well as increase your chances when trying to conceive.
Acupuncture, and the system of Traditional Chinese Medicine from which it originates, may hold the key that finally unlocks your unique healing process to help you conquer PCOS. Whether you are using conventional methods and are looking to enhance your efforts, or want to employ all-natural approaches, I encourage you to seek out a qualified acupuncturist in your area for treatment. The American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine is a good place to start to find acupuncturists uniquely qualified in the area of PCOS. I also invite you to contact Chris directly via my website at www.axelradclinic.com if you have any questions or would like to work with him one-on-one either in-person or via phone or Skype.
