Acubalance Wellness Clinic is voted Best of Vancouver in Two Categories: Acupuncture and Naturopathy

Upon receiving the official notice of this year’s Georgia Straight Best of Awards, Dr. Lorne Brown founder and clinical director of Acubalance said, “This is our thirteenth year voted the Best of Vancouver. I find it difficult to truly express my deep gratitude for the team at Acubalance and the fantastic people we are privileged to treat. What started as a belief in the power of the body’s innate ability to heal has manifested into us helping women and men become parents. We’ve been able to see pregnancies happen in some very challenging circumstances. The icing on the cake is the fact that for the last eighteen years, the world’s best clients have spoken up in support of these things we believe in and practice every day. Thank you for voting us Best in Vancouver for the 13th time!”

Dr. Brown B.Sc., CA, Dr. TCM, FABORM, CHt, CLT is a thought leader in the field of Chinese Reproductive Medicine and integrated fertility care. As one of North America’s first board-certified fellows of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine, he is internationally known for his work as an educator and advocate for integrated fertility care. An Acubalance patient Carolyn, 42 said, “I am confident that the care, motivation, support and treatment that I received at Acubalance is why I’m gazing into the eyes of my precious new baby boy right now!”

The Acubalance method starts with an in-depth fertility and health audit to establish an accurate history. Conventional and functional medicine testing are used to uncover underlying factors that may be preventing the patient from conceiving or maintaining a healthy pregnancy. This also applies to partners, where a male partner is involved.
Whether a client is diagnosed with high FSH, low AMH, has experienced repeated IVF failures, miscarriages, PCOS, endometriosis or has been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, a multidisciplinary approach is used to determine where these subtle and not so subtle imbalances lie, and to correct them.

Working with your medical doctor fertility specialist, the Acubalance team works to navigate a fertility journey and support the patient in choosing optimum treatment options. The carefully charted approach, whether trying to conceive naturally or with IVF, may include fertility acupuncture, Laser for Fertility, herbal prescriptions, mind/body stress reduction tools, naturopathy, functional medicine, fertility diet and lifestyle changes to effectively treat a whole range of fertility challenges, including: Egg Quality, Sperm Quality, IVF Support, uterine receptivity, PCOS, Endometriosis, Diminished Ovarian Reserve (high FSH/low AMH), Advanced Maternal Age, Recurrent Miscarriages, Unexplained Infertility, and Male factor Infertility.

Efficacy Study: The Acubalance onsite laser acupuncture treatment protocol on IVF transfer day for Comprehensive Chromosome Screened (CCS) embryos had a higher pregnancy rate and lower miscarriage rate than embryos that did not receive Acubalance treatments on site at Olive Fertility. All transferred embryos were tested to be chromosomally normal. Examiners were looking to see if the Acubalance protocol helped with uterine receptivity and implantation. Olive did a retrospective audit for the period January 2016 to March 2018 of FET transfers that were screened to be euploid (chromosome normal) embryos. They compared those who had onsite Acubalance laser acupuncture to those who did not. Women had a higher pregnancy rates and lower miscarriages with the Acubalance protocol.

Acubalance would also like to congratulate Olive Fertility Centre for receiving the Georgia Straight Best Fertility Clinic in Vancouver for the Fourth Year in a Row, Acubalance works in partnership with Olive to offer natural fertility care and onsite fertility acupuncture treatment.
