She was featured on MIX 106 as the first “Ask A Smart Person” for her work with difficult to treat women’s health problems, medical mysteries and infertility.

Ms. Burris’ primary focus is women’s health and anti-aging. 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.

Acupuncture medically enhances the very expensive and invasive In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) approach to infertility: Adding Acupuncture increases up to a 50% increase in pregnancy rates in some clinical studies.

Kristen Burris is one of the most amazing women I know. She treated me for infertility and habitual miscarriage. She is a a miracle worker in my book. My husband and I are indebted to her and Tony for helping us have two sweet little boys, a year apart I might add! Acupuncture and herbs work. It’s that simple.

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.

Ms. Burris and her husband, Tony Burris L.Ac., M.S., are the founders of the wellness center Eagle Acupuncture in Eagle, Idaho … Kristen also hosts a FREE Fertility Support Group for Women struggling to get or stay pregnant. RSVP Required (208) 938-1277. Ms. Burris is also in the process of writing a book about infertility due to be completed in 2012.

Eagle Acupuncture Patients Featured on this Video in Their Own Words

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!

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.
