Our Holistic Approach


At Rhythms, we know that many women suffer from a gynecological condition known as endometriosis, which often impacts fertility. You may suffer from heavy menstrual bleeding, pain in the pelvis or abdominal area, and more.  Endometriosis often goes undiagnosed in Western medicine, and even when diagnosed can be a lifelong issue in which infertility remains a problem regardless of treatment with anti-inflammatory and hormonal drugs, pain killers, and even surgery.  We believe in holistic fertility practices involving acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, proper nutrition, and more depending on each unique individual.

Whether you know for a fact you have endometriosis or simply suspect it, our fertility specialists believe strongly in the power of traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture for treatment of this painful condition.  A natural approach without side effects for most women, those with endometriosis will find our therapies can address infertility and even reduce heavy bleeding during menstrual cycles, pain, and more.  Our natural fertility clinic focuses on women’s health and treating conditions in a way that focuses on overall health and well-being, balancing all the body’s systems.

Acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, and nutritional therapy all work to balance hormones and encourage the body to produce its own anti-inflammatory reactions, essential considering endometriosis involves inflammation and excess estrogen in the body.  For natural treatment of endometriosis and enhanced fertility, we encourage women in Portsmouth, Kennebunk, or Portland to contact Rhythms today at 207-615-4240.
