Acupuncture for increasing milk supply

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

Can someone recommend really good doctors or people who are good at acupuncture for increasing milk supply? Professionals who have demonstrated visible difference?

 

If you have personal experience with such practitioners can you please post recommendations?

 

>..for Bellevue, Seattle and surrounding areas..please.

No acupuncture recommendations, but have you had your thyroid tested? Low thyroid can lead to low milk supply.

My girls and I have used a wonderful accupunturist in Bellvue. She has been treating us for a car accident. Her name is Dr Wu and has been studying since she was 9 years old. She also does custom herbals, and I am sure she would be able to help you with your milk supply. She is also very patient with my girls (6 and 9 years)

Best of luck to you,

Phathui5 ..got my TSH, T3 and T4 checked and all the readings are fantastically within normal range. More confounding this :-)

 

Ikoz2 -- thank you. Her site seems promising enough. 

 

I have noticed something interesting though - most all the docs/acupuncturists sites I have seen do NOT list breastmilk supply has an ailment treatable by acupuncture. Yet I have read so many anecdotes about this....

 

 

Dr. Wu's own site has this link which cites many problems but supply.... yet I am sure if I call for an appointment they will say that treat supply problems :/

WHO's site links lactation as treatable by acupuncture though.
