It is important to understand that Jodi is trained to look at you within a Chinese medicine framework. Essentially, as a unique individual with a set of signs and symptoms which indicate disharmony or an imbalance in your overall state of wellness. According to Chinese medicine, this imbalance may potentially have detrimental impacts on your health, including that of the reproductive system or fertility.
