Overall my experience with Whole Family Health and specifically Christina Pistotnik has been amazing! I highly recommend them to anyone on the fence about seeking out support. More details below if you’re interested… I first contacted Whole Family Health with hopes they could help me with fertility. I was connected with Christina and started with virtual appointments due to COVID (May 2020). Christina answered my questions with clarity and understanding, she followed up with an email helping me know what to expect in the upcoming weeks/months. After starting acupuncture with her in June 2020, I would contact her with questions around my menstrual cycle and how to interpret doctors notes or test results. Trying to conceive was frustrating and confusing for the first year. Once I connected with Christina it was much easier. She is always prompt to reply to emails between appointments. At appointments she listens attentively and answers all questions clearly. She truly made our journey to conception so much easier. Throughout my pregnancy I continued to follow her suggestions for herbal supplements and acupuncture. I continued to ask questions and use her support and guidance to help. There are so many new things throughout pregnancy, it is so helpful knowing you have someone so knowledgeable and professional in your former. As I went into labour I knew I was as prepared as I could be with the pointers and information from our sessions leading up. Now with my newborn I continue to know I have Whole Family Health to turn to with any questions that arise.
I am so grateful for all your help and support over the last year and a bit, you definitely made a huge difference in how I viewed the infertility issues we experienced. Your positivity surrounding it was unwavering, and for that I will never be able to thank you enough. So for now, we will build our family thru the adoption process and if we are meant to have more then it will happen and if not, our family will be complete with 3. Words can not fully express the difference you have made in my life and for that I thank you.
My cycle failed to return back to normal after being off the birth control pill for over 2 years. All of my test results came back as normal so I decided to try acupuncture. I was experiencing very irregular cycles (anywhere from 25-50 days) and painful periods with spotting all throughout the cycle, something I never had prior to going on the pill. After a few months of acupuncture, my cycle had become regular and my cramps nearly disappeared. It has been such a great experience, I would highly recommend it! – J. K.
