I am an Acupuncturist, Chinese Herbalist, and Medical Qigong Master with a specialty practice in natural fertility and women's health. At my clinic, we see patients who are trying to get pregnant naturally or using IVF/IUI, patients having hormonal issues like irregular cycles, infrequent periods, and menopausal symptoms, and patients who are already pregnant and looking for natural pregnancy care for common problems such as breech baby, morning sickness, back/leg pain, threatened miscarriage, and others.

When I first started seeing Chris Axelrad for my infertility issues, I wasn't sure if he could help me. I had a lot of challenges. It just seemed that I had everything go wrong. Chris was very patient in listening to me. I never felt like was my fears or concerns were too insignificant to talk about. The Axelrad clinic became like a place of refuge. Infertility is hard and Chris totally understands this. He'll give you tips and ideas on how to deal with diet as well as the psychological toll. His clinic would get busy at times and even though he was the only acupuncturist working there with more than one patient- I always felt like I was only patient when he spoke with me.
Ultimately, I came out with good results. Before I started seeing Chris my antral follicle count was average. After several sessions with Chris, my antral follicle count was above average. My uterine lining built up - where there was little uterine lining because of ashermans. He also helped me deal with my tendency for fibroids. He is also adept at dealing with the male infertility. I got pregnant at 40!!!
