Staying in the Right Heart Space During IVF

Your infertility journey will have ups and downs and tension or disagreement between partners is not unusual. For some, it seems as though their partner doesn’t quite understand what they are going through and that they are all alone in this difficult process.

But it is important to remember that you are on this path together and that you both wish for the same outcome, you are simply experiencing infertility in your own individual ways.

Since there is often a difference in our ways of coping, it is important to try to respect each other’s differences, moods and opinions.  It is often helpful to let your partner know how you prefer to cope with disappointment or anxiety. For example, do you need a hug or do you need help figuring out what to do next? Tell him or her what comforts you – and what doesn’t work for you as well. Don’t assume your partner is a mind-reader.

Sharing your feelings to each other makes you closer. 

Infertility treatment can be a long and difficult process. While it is important to go to appointments together and discuss decisions together, the most important factor is to remember what you are actually doing. Often people get so caught up in the medical side of things that they forget that they are creating a baby.  So make an effort to stay in that heart space for if it was happening naturally you would be making love.  Be kind, nurturing and look after one another.

 

Acupuncture Increases Fertility

 

    Acupuncture        Increases Fertility

Increase your Success Rates by up to 65%
How does Chinese Medicine, Diet & Nutrition help? Why is it so effective? 

Recent research shows that Acupuncture on its own, can increase the pregnancy rates of people using IVF by 65%. (British medical Journal-Feb 08)
Used on its own it can deliver the same rates for those not using IVF procedures too. The studies used showed that these success rates could be achieved by using acupuncture 1-2 days, before and after the transfer of embryos. Wow! Just one-day use of acupuncture can produce those results! And that’s just one study. 

Even though research shows that acupuncture, on its own, can increase the pregnancy rates of couples using IVF, other studies and protocols, such as the one I use, can produce even better results. 

From my clinical experience and recent research, this rate can be increased more by using a multi-modality approach combining both Chinese Herbs, Acupuncture, Diet & Nutritional Supplements for support throughout IVF. 

Not just for couples using IVF, but for all couples.

Actually, current research shows that 90% of couples should be able to conceive on their own  (irrespective of time taken). This means that 10% of couples will need combined help (assisted reproduction and Chinese medicine).
Out of the 10%, this allows for 5% of couples whom will never be able to conceive despite all combinations of treatment both Chinese and Western methods. 

Large numbers of patients who have tried IVF several times and were unsuccessful have become pregnant soon after our treatment protocol. Medical imaging shows that after Chinese medicine treatment, the colour of women's ovaries change from cloudy to bright and clear. The follicles double in number, the uterine lining becomes thicker and the number of embryos increases significantly. Patients experience fewer side effects from the Western Drugs and feel better emotionally. (That’s a good thing). 

In male patients, the sperm quality significantly improves and the sperm count increases. Research has now proved this. Research has also shown that the healthier a male is at conception, the healthier the sperm are, thus producing better embryos. Unhealthy males and especially smokers and drinkers produce poor embryos. 

Chinese Medicine can improve fertility and pregnancy rates in several ways... 

Improve ovarian function to produce better quality eggs 

 Regulate hormones to produce a greater number of follicles 

 Increase blood flow to the uterus and increase thickness of the uterine lining 

 Relax the patient and decrease stress levels (my favourite) 

 Prevent the uterus from contracting 

 Lessens the side effects of drugs used in IVF & Assisted Reproduction

 Strengthen the immune system (very important as Western medicine treatments usually 

decrease immunity) 

Improve the sperm count and motility to produce better embryos 

Decrease and prevent the chances of miscarriage (Western Medicine still as yet, has no treatment for this)
