Success with IFV

At age 39 my husband and I began trying for our second child, with no success. We turned to medical techniques and went straight to very aggressive IVF treatments. Although my “numbers were good” (hormone levels within normal range) and I produced large numbers of eggs, unfortunately we endured the heartache and anguish of 3 failed IVF treatments. I did a lot of research and learned that acupuncture was thought to help IVF, although to be honest I was at a point of giving up hope. A friend referred me to Sharon Yeung. One thing I was surprised by was that Sharon gave me a diagnosis and did not just chalk it up to being too old. Sharon told me she thought I could have a baby naturally without IVF, which was hard to imagine given the dismal results I had thus far achieved. She started me on Chinese Medicine and treatments. After my 3rd IVF failure, I was ready to switch to a different IVF clinic for one last IVF and had started looking into adoption. After 13 months of trying and the 3rd failure, and one more natural try which I thought had failed, I went to Sharon’s office in complete despair. She gave me some advice which I was too upset to listen to, told me not to give up and that perhaps I was pregnant. To be honest I took a pregnancy test just to call and tell her that I got another negative, well somehow I guess she knew and no one was more surprised and elated that I when the word “Pregnant” flashed across the screen. Sharon turned out to be right after all, I was able to get pregnant naturally and delivered my beautiful, healthy baby girl at age 41. I continued to see Sharon and Marie as well throughout the pregnancy and am forever grateful for their help in helping me achieve my incredible miracle. My only wish is that I had discovered Sharon before I even did one IVF but I think Sharon would tell me that it was all part of the journey I needed to go through. Choice of treatment is a very personal decision, however I would encourage anyone going through infertility to work with Sharon as I believe that I would not have my sweet and amazing baby without her help, knowledge and support.

Welcome to Five Seasons Acupuncture and Herbs

Sharon Yeung MS, LAc and her associates at Five Seasons Healing in New York City offer acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, massage, qi gong and lifestyle and nutritional counseling to treat all your health concerns.

Traditional Chinese medicine approaches the human body as part of the natural world and thus inextricably linked to natural cycles. When we eat peas in the spring and pumpkin in the fall, when we play under the sun in the summer and cozy up to a fire in the winter, we resonate with the earth’s natural rhythms and achieve a greater sense of health and well-being.

In Chinese medicine, each year is divided into five seasons—spring, summer, late summer, autumn, and winter. Just as different seasons call for different forms of care, so do the different seasons of our lives.

At Five Seasons Healing, Sharon Yeung MS, LAc, recognizes the distinct needs of all patients young and old. She uses the tools of Chinese medicine to restore harmony and balance to their lives.

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be especially useful in treating a whole range of women’s health conditions and promote fertility, a healthy pregnancy and childbirth. Sharon Yeung MS, LAc combines her expertise in acupuncture and Chinese medicine with her training as a labor doula to offer the best possible care for her expecting patients.

TCM and Prostate Health

Posted on by Sharon Yeung LAc

I have noticed recently that there has been an overwhelming amount of information in the news, in both Eastern and Western Medicine reports, on the controversial nature of PSA testing in regards to men’s health.  PSA, or prostate specific antigen, is the protein produced by prostate cells, and the main screening agent for prostate cancer. While there are reasons why PSA levels can elevate that don’t necessarily mean that a man has prostate cancer, including prostate infections (prostatitis), urinary tract [...]
