She treats patients for infertility, menstrual irregularities, ailments during pregnancy, post partum and hormonal imbalances throughout menopause. Kristen is one of the only acupuncture experts in Idaho with extensive experience in infertility.  A recent government funded study at Adelaide University found traditional Chinese herbal medicine to be TWICE as effective in the treatment of female infertility achieving pregnancy in 1/3 of the time frame compared to standard western fertility drug treatments and IVF over 12 months.

If you are told “you must use an egg donor, sperm donor, embryo adoption or adoption as your only fertility options,” this is a critical time to get a second opinion at our Fertility Center at Eagle Acupuncture. In most cases, we successfully help these couples have a baby when other forms of medicine have failed.

Remember, it has been proven in a study, that you are TWICE as likely in ONE THIRD of the time to get pregnant using our medicine compared to Fertility Drugs and In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and a fraction of the cost over a 12 month period.

Women’s Health Expert, Kristen Burris’ patients were interviewed by KBOI Channel 2 for their exceptional response to treatment of a wide array of menopausal symptoms. These patients exclusively used Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine to address all of their complex medical issues.

Menopause Success Stories Testimonials

jeanie-testimonialReally! At 42 I was experiencing symptoms that I knew were inevitable, but thought I was years away from. With each year it got worse — night sweats were not just nightly, my waist line got bigger (but I hadn’t changed the way I eat), and my “drive” (you know what I mean) was stalled at a red light.

I tried the pill but the symptoms didn’t improve enough to warrant the potential negative side affects. To be honest it was pure frustration that led me to natural treatment at Eagle Acupuncture and I wish I had not waited so long.

Do something for yourself this year and give it a try. You have nothing to lose…but your symptoms!

Guess what? I am 48 now and fit into my skinny jeans that I bought when I was 40!

~ Jeanie Stidham


I was 43 years old with irregular periods fluctuating from light to heavy. I was regular like clock work before that.
I was Moody and crying but I was usually a happy person
I was Bloated and had Cramps. I had never had these before.

I went to two different OBGYN’s (before finding Eagle Acupuncture and Kristen Burris, L.Ac.). One put me on birth control and the other hormones. I felt I needed a different approach.

Why I choose acupuncture…

My cousins had some similar symptoms and she had acupuncture and she said it worked! I went to Kristen for the above symptoms…I immediately felt like my old self…happy…regular periods..then no periods.. no cramping…no bloating…happy…not moody…
I love the supplements…and I take Metagenics still.
I am 48 now in great health: bone density good, vitals great, and no hormones!
Kristen has healed so many women through acupuncture (herbal medicine) and supplements.

It’s the feeling of wishing I had known then what I know now. But we can’t go back in time, and we can’t always know. I was desperate, however, and even as well informed and educated as I thought I was – I was wrong. But then desperation often leads us down drastic paths. Paths, that even with the best of intentions, leave us with regret. I wish I knew about acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine before I had the ablation, as that’s where much of this path of regret and desperation began. Since the birth of my last child three years prior I began experiencing extremely heavy periods with excessive bleeding that impacted my personal and professional life. To address that, it was recommended that I get an ablation. For the first year and a half it was great, I didn’t have another period and no more bleeding problems. But then the constant abdominal pain started and nothing seemed to bring relief.

I was diagnosed with post ablation syndrome where all of the veins in my uterus were enlarged and causing the constant pain. On top of that I began to have severe bladder prolapse. I was advised by three doctors to get a hysterectomy and a bladder sling. I was devastated by this news. Not because I wanted more children. I had four and was done with that part of my life. But I was afraid of surgery, the risks, the changes, and the unknown. But more than anything, I knew the physical aspects of my sexual life would change once they took my uterus and cervix. We aren’t supposed to talk about those things. They are meant to be private, and yet such an important part of our lives. I asked every question I could think of and every possible option. In the end, I needed to be pain free and a functioning mother and professional, so I gave in and had the surgery. I had one of the best surgeons in the area. I had some initial complications getting my bladder to cooperate again the first week after surgery, but I committed to resting and healing.

The first three or four months were focused on recovery, and while I struggled with the physical changes, I began to be over overwhelmed by the psychological and emotional changes. I stopped feeling like me. I couldn’t recognize myself in my own skin: it was like living in a constant fog filled with sadness, rage, frustration, and confusion. My hormones tanked, even though I hadn’t lost my ovaries they clearly quit working.

There I was, more desperate than I’d ever been, truly at my lowest of lows, afraid I might not ever be me again. My doctor prescribed Lexapro to help take the edge off while we tracked my hormones to determine treatment. One pill was all I took and within two hours I experienced severe nausea, diarrhea, heart racing, weakness in my legs and uncontrollable tremors. I ended up in the emergency room with serotonin toxicity. Afraid to try anything else, and knowing it was hormonal I sought out the doctor who gave me the second opinion about the surgery. Because I was only 39 she was reluctant to try hormone replacement therapy but asked if I would consider a low-dose birth control pill. I agreed. Two weeks into taking the pills and I experienced numbness and weakness in my left shoulder and arm, facial numbness, and chest pain. There I was, again in the emergency room, and this time told I could never take any type of hormones and that I was lucky I didn’t have a stroke and die.

Left with this news, the doctor looked at me and said she didn’t think there was anything that western medicine could do to help me and would I consider trying something different – would I consider acupuncture and herbal medicine. There I was, desperate, and more than desperate I was hopeless. I felt like I had no options. It was this, or give up life altogether. And that’s when I met Kristen and Eagle Acupuncture. I didn’t think there was anything that she could do for me that others hadn’t tried, but I went and I committed myself to her care and direction.

What I’ve experienced, feels to me very much like a miracle. After three treatments I felt the fog lift and felt hope. It took six months, but the difference from when I walked in the door and where I am now is night and day. It’s been more than a year since I had my hysterectomy and even longer since this all started. And, I’ve finally found me again. There were many weeks where a blue sky, or the wind, or simply breathing made me cry, or rage, or crawl so deep inside myself that I was sure I was going crazy. Those days are altogether gone. But I don’t believe this was a miracle at all, I believe that what Kristin did was true medicine. She’s a compassionate, caring, educated, and invested women’s health medical provider.

The regret that have today is that I didn’t know enough to start with her – with acupuncture and herbal medicine – and more than that, that none of my doctors told me I had this option to begin with. And, what I don’t want to regret is sharing my story so that other women know they have choices and that acupuncture and herbal medicine are a true medicine that shouldn’t be a last resort or something to be ashamed or afraid of trying. I can truly say that I owe Kristen much more than a thank you, I owe her my life as mother, a wife, an individual, and a professional. It is because of her care and work as a skilled practitioner of acupuncture and herbal medicine that I have my health and life back. I think it’s important that others know this too. Thank you Kristen, for everything.
