Consult a LAc (Licensed Acupuncturist) about your child's specific needs.
Although not a panacea, acupuncture can treat many issues that fall through the cracks of Western Medicine, often making a painful situation into a manageable one. Consult with an acupuncturist to find out the underlying syndrome, try it and see if it works for you.
Interestingly acupuncture is also a good complementary treatment for complex diseases. It can mitigate the side affects of chemotherapy such and nausea and insomnia for example.
Often acupuncture helps with nausea due to pregnancy.
There are acupuncturist specialists who treat infertility and OBGYN problems. Go to www.https://aborm.org to find a specialist.
That being said, acupuncture is not a magic; sensible diet and exercise are a must for any weight loss program. Consult with an acupuncturist.
Good luck in the future.
