What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you hear the words ‘Chinese Medicine’? For most, acupuncture seems to be the leading- and sometimes only- image attached to this ancient healing practice. But in fact, acupuncture is just one of the many options that Chinese medicine as a whole has to offer.
One of the reasons why we’re so successful at Inner Peace Acupuncture is because we’re not just acupuncturists. Acupuncture is great, but it’s only one aspect of what we do.
We integrate Chinese medicine with functional medicine and incorporate nutrition, lifestyle, exercise, environmental detox, and supplements for a well-rounded treatment protocol to help you get pregnant faster.
You tracked your ovulation, you did the baby dance and now….you wait.
You find yourself “symptom checking.”
Ohhhh, is that an implantation cramp?
Do I feel slight nausea?
Did my boobs get bigger?
You also can’t help it but hop onto fertility blogs and forums to see if anyone else out there is feeling the same way, and to find comfort in knowing that anything is possible. There is always a chance.
So the embryo transfer didn’t work, reality sets in…
Is this ever going to work? What if it doesn’t work?
There is no denying that IVF is a huge financial, emotional and physical investment. Plus whatever other investments you’ve made prior to arriving at the decision of jumping into IVF. And now you’re down one embryo, and there’s a possibility that it won’t work the second time either.
Congratulations! You’ve made it to the end of Week 2 of our Bye-bye Sugar Challenge!
Did you ever think it was possible for you to say “goodbye” to sugar? Give yourself a pat on the back.
By now, you should have parted ways with refined, white sugar, and the so-called “healthy” fruit juices, sodas and other soft drinks. Have you noticed any physical changes? Have you lost weight? Have you started to feel some positive changes in your energy and overall mood? Perhaps you are finding it easier to get out of bed in the mornings. Or maybe, you’ve noticed more consistent energy throughout the day and less of the “afternoon slump.” All of these seemingly small changes are confirmation that your overall health is improving and that you are getting one-step closer to a more fertile you.
