At AcuWell LLC, our acupuncture treatments include Eastern nutrition counseling, Chinese herbal and supplement recommendations, and lifestyle counseling. When treating patients for infertility, one area we focus on is evaluating environmental exposures that could be leading to poor egg quality. Some environmental factors and exposures that decrease fertility are BPA, phthalates, dioxin, heavy metals, and organophosphate pesticides. Most people know that in order to reduce pesticide exposure they should buy organic produce when possible. Many people are not aware that chemicals in their skin products and makeup can be absorbed. To reduce these topical exposures, we recommend patients research the products they apply to their skin. One easy way to do this is to check out EWG’s SkinDeep database here: https://www.ewg.org/skindeep/
