150 Best Doctors, Alternative Healers, & Get-Fit Resources: The Feel-Great Guide (Part 2)
Mind-Body Fertility Specialist
WE ASKED: docs at the city’s top fertility clinics
THEIR PICK: Angela C. Wu, Wu’s Healing Center (415/752-0170)
Wu, a doctor of Chinese medicine who recently retired as director of the Chinese Healing Studies Program at S.F. State, has a reputation far beyond the Bay Area. Her results have been so impressive that she is featured on the PBS series Healing Quest. (She also has a book, Secrets of the Fertility Goddess, due out from Rodale this year.) Wu describes her method–a combo of herbs, needles, diet, and other traditional techniques–as “putting out the invitation to the baby.” She and her staff (including her nephew, acupuncturist and herbalist Po-Lin Shyu) regularly work with mainstream specialists to provide support for in vitro fertilization and other conventional baby-making treatments. Wu’s clinic also treats a range of other “female problems,” from hot flashes to cramps.
