Episode #62: Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Before, During, and After Your Pregnancy with Dr. R. Keith Bell
Welcome back everyone! Today's episode was especially fascinating for me to put together because I don't know a whole lot about the subject area myself. I learned so much from this interview with Dr. R. Keith Bell about Chinese medicine and acupuncture and I think you will too.
Dr. Bell has a doctorate in acupuncture and Chinese medicine. He is a Virginia licensed and nationally board certified acupuncturist with over two decades of experience teaching and practicing traditional and classic Chinese medicine. Dr. Bell is the owner of Oriental Medicine Specialists in Richmond, Virginia, where his team provides comprehensive holistic care with acupuncture, functional medicine, lifestyle counseling, and herbal medicine.
Dr. Bell and I talk about how acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be used throughout your entire pregnancy journey - all the way from planning for your baby through the postpartum period. We discuss the importance of taking an integrative health approach with patients, how acupuncture can help during labor and delivery, and some of the research behind Chinese medicine. Dr. Bell also shares what you need to know if you are looking for an acupuncturist.
