Hello everyone. I was asked to share my story so others could learn about some of the non mainstream treatment options to help with fertility. I couldn't deny the request because I do know the feeling of not being alone and renewed hope when you browse through the numerous testimonies, to read something that is similar to what you are experiencing. Been there and done that.. So here it is...
Kathleen has been amazing. Not only is she a wonderful acupuncturist, but she is much more.
Dr. Kathleen Lee has a gentle, detailed approach to care that helped me to live the way I wanted. After her treatments, I started to feel less lethargic and was in the right place to get pregnant. Kathleen Lee listens and supports your health goals. One of my goals was increased energy, another to have a baby.
She helped me to get there and my pregnancy was fulfilling and healthy because she addressed my anemia and fertility.
I am grateful for her support and treatment that helped to bring my beautiful son into this world.
After being told by my Vancouver IVF clinic that it was very unlikely I would ever conceive, that I had low egg reserve, and that they couldn't help us with any fertility assistance, I found myself awfully saddened and distraught by the news. Then I found Acubalance. Not only was I welcomed with warm hearts and caring voices, I felt like someone was listening and was not only wanting to help but as Kathleen said, ready to cheer me on!
Thoughts on my 40th Birthday…
I am a reproductive acupuncturist who has had reproductive challenges. I often find it hard to answer the question when someone asks how long we had been trying. Fertility as it turns out, at least for us, was not a straight line and had so many layers - beyond what I could have imagined going in. Of course as a practitioner, I know those layers: blood flow, egg quality, sperm quality, stress, diet, vitamins, supplements, etc., but in real life it is not always that easy or direct. I suppose in total maybe we “tried” for 5 years.
I’m 42 years old and I have just given birth to a healthy baby boy. He is the most beautiful baby boy I have ever laid eyes on; ok, so I may be basis, but I’m sure if you saw him you’d agree he’s pretty cute!
I was amazed at how easy my transfer day went. I met with Lorne for a pre-transfer session, which was super relaxing and put me into a really open space of receptivity, I went for my transfer, and then I returned for a bookend treatment.
I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) in early 2012. This was no surprise to me as I had experienced many of the symptoms for years from the age of 16 on: trouble with weight loss, hormonal acne, severe PMS, insomnia, high stress levels, irregular periods (no period at all for 9 months and 6 months at a time), severe emotional inconsistency, constant mood swings and mild depression to name a few.
