Initially I came to ilumina Healing to try acupuncture for fertility. At two times a week I began to notice a considerable difference in my energy levels, lowered my anxiety and overall felt my body come into a greater sense of balance. Not only this, but I have begun to show ovulating on my home ovulation kit for the first time since using this. My fertility journey is underway and I feel excellent going into it! Thank you ilumina Healing Sanctuary!
It was hard to hear from the MDs that I would not be able to have a baby unless it was in-vitro. When I called your center, it was the most adventurous thing that I had done. My family thought I had lost it and this was never going to work. I am so glad that I listened to my heart and stayed with your center. Our baby is so precious to us. She is full of life. It must be very gratifying to know how many people you help every day who have lost hope.
I started seeing Dr. Dana Price because I went off of the pill to get pregnant and within a few months I was experiencing horrible menstrual cycles and having problems getting pregnant. Dana was able to help regulate my cycle naturally and alleviate the pain caused by cramping and heavy bleeding. For the first time in my life I had a normal menstrual cycle without being on medication. I was also seeing an infertility specialist but really wanted to get pregnant naturally, if possible. The first month I was supposed to do insemination the doctor said my follicles didn’t look good and told me to come back the next month. Per Dana’s advice, we tried on our own anyway and miraculously got pregnant that month. I now have a 15 month old healthy boy and couldn’t be happier. When I tell people I saw an acupuncturist to get pregnant many people asked if it hurt or was uncomfortable. It was just the opposite. My sessions with Dana were so relaxing and she was very supportive and really listened to what I had to say. It was a wonderful experience!
Not being new to Chinese medicine, I was open to acupuncture to assist me with my increasing circulation problems in my legs during pregnancy with my third child. However, I was a little bit apprehensive about the needles and if it could really help with how quickly my spider and varicose veins were appearing. I began treatment with Shira around 16 weeks and not only was she remarkably gentle with her technique but she seemed to be very intuitive about what was needed(not the same every time). I can recommend her with the highest confidence because I benefited greatly by my veins not advancing throughout the later stages of pregnancy which was remarkable!
I truly believe that I would not have my beautiful baby without the treatments I received. You were all so supportive and helpful. I can’t express in words how appreciative my husband and I are.
I wanted to tell you how very grateful we are that we found you and that you helped us tremendously to achieve our goal to become parents. We strongly believe that without you our boy would not be here today. Not only did you help us with our bodies, but you gave me hope and compassion through a very difficult time. Thank you!
After struggling with infertility for over two years and undergoing many treatments, including surgery and two rounds of in-vitro fertilization, my medical doctor recommended I combine acupuncture with my next in-vitro attempt. At that time I was also dealing with the recent loss of my father who had been terminally ill and was feeling very stressed and hopeless. Dr. Price was knowledgeable, kind and compassionate. I am happy to report that my third round of in-vitro fertilization, done in conjunction with acupuncture, was successful and I recently gave birth to a healthy, beautiful baby girl. I cannot thank Dr. Price and her staff enough. I would highly recommend Dr. Price to anyone.
We had been trying to get pregnant for 3 years, tried 2 unsuccessful IUI’s, and I had recently been diagnosed with an alarming FSH level of 13.9. At 32, I was told I was likely facing early menopause and may need an egg donor to conceive a child. When faced with paying more than $14,000 out of pocket per IVF attempt, which offered a 20% success rate and no guarantees, enough was enough. I was becoming convinced that the whole fertility industry was a scam. Then, Sherri Taylor re-introduced me to what it felt like to be listened to by a medical professional. She gave me practical advice, put me on a new diet with supplements, and along with the first acupuncture treatment, gave me hope and compassion. Dana Price was equally as kind, caring, interested and knowledgeable. After only 8 weeks of acupuncture treatments and herbs, I got my first positive pregnancy test. I got pregnant naturally! This is the biggest and craziest miracle of my life.
