Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM) and Acupuncture have centuries old traditions of treating fertility and addressing Endocrine (hormone) imbalances. Naturopathic Medicine involves stimulating the body’s innate ability to be in a state of health and optimal function within the organ systems, such as the reproductive and hormonal systems.
In modern times, acupuncture and CCM are gaining increasing use and support by western medical doctors due to an increase in success rates of pregnancy to term and healthy babies with or without hormone therapy or IVF in women and men who use acupuncture as a preconception modality.

Our unique and personalized approach addresses infertility associated with hormonal imbalances, PCOS, luteal phase defects, adrenal fatigue, endometriosis, advanced maternal age, blood clotting disorders and unexplained causes.

Dr. Dishman specializes in Functional Endocrinology and is able to address and treat complicated and chronic hormonal cases from an integrative and complementary health care approach.

She customizes her treatments with a variety of western and eastern herbs and nutritional supplements as well as nutrition and lifestyle modifications.
Because Acupuncture and Natural Medicine stimulates the cardiovascular system, it simultaneously activates the release of neurotransmitters and hormones, thus stabilizing and improving the function of the endocrine system and the body as a whole. Acupuncture and Natural Medicine play a major role in the normalization of the hypothylamic-putuitary-thyroid-adrenal-ovarian/testicular axis, which is integral to the process achieving optimal hormone balance.
