Wisdom of the Body

Feb 18, 2022

Listen to Michelle Oravitz, an acupuncturist specializing in fertility health, share her personal story with Heather and answer the question, “How does acupuncture work?” Michelle explains the pitfalls of going on the pill to fix imbalances that are changeable if you are taught how to change them. And Heather and Michelle talk about why the fertility journey for women today often looks like: get a partner, take a prenatal vitamin and if that doesn’t work, then go to an acupuncturist.


In this episode, Heather and Michelle discuss: 

  • How people will do all kinds of things to reconnect with their fertility
  • Why so many people who are trying to conceive try acupuncture 
  • How acupuncture works 
  • What chi is 
  • How the energy of the healer transmits into the patient 
  • How Michelle was influenced by the book The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy 
  • Whether affirmations really work 
  • Why two people can have completely different experiences of the same journey
