Deerfield's Chiropractic, Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine Center Takes Natural Approach to Wellness

By Kelly Church

As a licensed chiropractic physician, acupuncturist and Diplomate in Oriental Medicine, Dr. Bahia Al-Salihi specializes in treating a range of health conditions through Chinese herbal medicine. Her practice, the Chiropractic, Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine Center in Deerfield, IL, takes a complete natural approach to wellness.

"The inspiration behind [my practice] is that we offer a combination of available integrative modalities," Al-Salihi said. "We will develop a highly individualized holistic treatment plan for every patient, for just about every condition, ranging?from acute to chronic pain."

Holistic treatments can offer relief from sinus infections, the flu, autoimmune disorders and asthma. Al-Salihi said she treats children and adults of all ages, including pregnant women and those trying to become pregnant. In fact, her services can work well alongside fertility treatments.

"Acupuncture combined with fertility treatments is shown to increase the overall success rate and decrease side effects," Al-Salihi said. "For example, acupuncture combined with clomiphene increases pregnancy rates, improves circulation to the uterus and reduces side effects compared to clomiphene alone or clomiphene combined with estrogen and progesterone."

Al-Salihi described acupuncture as helping regulate the body's hormone levels by working with the hypothalamus, pituitary glands and ovaries. She even said acupuncture and herbal medicine can solely be used to help women with infertility.

"If you are looking for an integrative approach to health and wellness, we recommend first that you choose a licensed practitioner, and second that you find a practitioner that can customize a treatment or wellness plan to fit your individual needs," Al-Salihi said. "We recognize that everyone is different."
