Furthermore, Eastern medicine therapies have proved extremely effective, with almost no side effects.

We make every program according to our patient’s needs, and they can contain any of the following treatment methods:

Acupuncture for PCOS

Acupuncture is one of the best and most effective methods to naturally engage healing abilities of your own body without the use of chemical drugs. It helps you heal faster by restoring cells, tissues, and organs, with more lasting effects. Clinical research has shown that this ancient Chinese therapy can successfully treat Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and infertility caused by it. Furthermore, it improves menstrual recovery, stabilizes hormone levels, helps regulate blood flow, reduces the size of ovaries, promotes ovulation, and reduces the size of the cysts.

Herbs for PCOS

Chinese herbs have been used to treat reproductive issues in women for thousands of years. They are usually prescribed along with acupuncture treatment to improve overall health and well-being, both physical and spiritual. Herbal medicine heals and strengthens the body, which is why it is very beneficial in treating polycystic ovaries’ symptoms including infertility,  hormonal imbalance, insulin resistance, menstrual cycle disorder, excess hair, acne, etc.

Functional Nutritional Therapy

Functional nutritional treatment is a patient-centered approach that uses food as medicine to improve the overall health of the patient. When your cells and glands get the nutrients they need, their function levels will be increased and your overall health and state of mind will be improved. With your vital parts optimized, you will feel your best and the symptoms of PCOS will be either reduced or alleviated.

Stress Relief And Relaxation

With your mind and nervous system in a state of relaxation, the rest of your physical body will relax, too. This includes hormones, immune system, blood circulation, and digestive system. The benefits of a  stress-free mind include better blood flow, better focus, stronger immune system, optimal nutrition of cells, and less inflammation. Healthy lifestyle is essential for overall well-being, including PCOS.

How Does Our PCOS Fertility Treatment Work?

Makari Wellness specialists combine expertise, knowledge, and ancient methods to achieve the best possible results of treatment. This is how we do it:

Identifying the cause of your polycystic ovaries syndrome

The reason why our TCM approach works is because it addresses the cause of PCOS and not only the symptoms. This is why ancient Chinese medicine had remarkable results when some other conventional modern therapies  were not successful.

Offering 100% natural options in addition to Western medicine procedures

A holistic approach may be successfully fused with Western medicine procedures to target hormonal disorders and other underlying issues you might have. In our experience, patients who had troubles responding to standard medical treatments have responded substantially better to natural methods like acupuncture.

Activating your body’s natural healing properties

Even though it may sound impossible to do, it is possible to awake your body’s natural mechanisms and heal your hormones and PCOS in a natural way. The reason is because the body knows how to heal itself, it just needs to be reminded how to do it, with gentle, non-invasive techniques of TCM. The human body is remarkable as it can produce its own natural medicine to remedy various disorders.

The results are fairly quick

If you decide to try our recommended treatment plan that includes not only targeted therapies like acupuncture, but also changes in lifestyle and diet, the resolution of your polycystic ovaries syndrome may occur rather quick. A combination of these principles fights the root of the problem directly; thus you will most likely see the improvement within several days, and will not have to wait for months before you see positive results.

The focus is on your emotional and mental well-being

While patients might be used to focusing on lab results and numbers, with Makari Wellness you will get a different approach. For us, what matters most is how you feel and how you think. Your spiritual and mental state can significantly influence your physical state, which is why we will offer advice on how to introduce lifestyle changes that will improve your overall wellness.

Stress-free way of life

One of the major factors that influences PCOS is stress, and this is a vital element that cannot be ignored. Our specialist will help you learn how to improve your sleep patterns and how to relax. In turn,  your body will be able to engage it’s healing powers faster and deal with PCOS easier.

Success Stories: Read Our Clients Testimonials

I can’t say enough good things about Michael and his practice.  I first found michael after a surgery on my proximal humerus.  He helped immensely with bringing the swelling down, breaking up the scar tissue, and pain.  Three years ago, I went back and saw him for my first pregnancy.  I had preterm labor, and through herbs and acupuncture, he helped carry me through to 42 weeks.  At 41 weeks, I went back to see him twice to help induce labor.  The acupuncture helped greatly with inducing labor and assisting with my 7 hour start to finish labor.  I am now seeing him again at 35 weeks pregnant to slow down my pre term labor contractions and ensure a smooth labor!  Thanks Michael for everything! – Leila Mora, San Diego

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Polycystic ovarian syndrome?

Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a common hormone disorder affecting women of childbearing age. Women with PCOS have abnormal sex hormone production, namely, their bodies produce too much of the male sex hormone (androgen). This imbalance causes problems with how women’s ovaries work. Th egg may not entirely mature or it may not be released during every menstrual cycle. And without ovulation, there will be no conception. Polycystic ovarian syndrome is common among women of all races and ethnicities, with Asian women being affected the most.

What causes polycystic ovaries?

Although the exact causes of polycystic ovaries remain unknown, the onset of this problem is related to  hormonal imbalance, excess hormonal production (androgen, insulin, and progesterone), and genetic factors.

How does it affect pregnancy?

Polycystic ovary syndrome affects the chances of getting pregnant, however it does not necessarily mean that you are infertile.  You might be advised to undergo certain medication or treatments in order to improve your fertility.

However, it is worth mentioning that women with PCOS issues are at higher risk of certain complications during pregnancy, such as miscarriage, high-blood pressure, preterm birth, and C-section delivery. Make sure you follow our instructions carefully.

The estimates will be based on your specific condition and your unique needs. For more information on our service fees, check out FAQ – Fee schedule for treatment programs.

Does acupuncture hurt?

Most people who have not tried acupuncture wonder the same. Acupuncture does not hurt. It is a relaxing and pain free technique. We administer super thin, sterile needles and the only sensation you might feel is slight numbness at the point of insertion or tingling, caused by unblocking the energy.

How should I prepare for the initial appointment?

For your first appointment you don’t have to make any special preparations. Bring all your medical documentation with you and wear comfortable clothes. Using our online platform, you will be able to fill out a questionnaire, so that we can start the exam immediately upon your arrival. Make sure you arrive at least 10 minutes early in order to avoid stressing over being late.

What can I expect during the session?

The acupuncture sessions are meant to be relaxing, so you will be placed in a relaxing position that is comfortable for you. After we administer the needles, you will feel a slight tingling feeling or mild ache, which happens as your “Qi” (“life force”, “vital energy”) is released.  This feeling is also known under the name of “Qi sensation” and it is indicative of successful therapy. Following an acupuncture appointment you might either feel relaxed or energized.

What other services do you offer at your clinic?

Our services include multiple Eastern treatment options like acupuncture, orthopedic / dry-needling acupuncture, nutritional advice, Chinese herbal medicine, electro-acupuncture medicine, active release techniques (ART), moxibustion, guasha (instrument assisted myofascial work, posture correction and functional movement, cold laser therapy (photo bio modulation), red light therapy, cupping, patient education, and so on.
