Adding Acupuncture To IVF

Hi, Lorne:

I wanted to send you a very overdue thank you adding acupuncture to IVF made all the difference!!! I’m not sure if you remember me but I came to see you after about four years of unsuccessfully trying for our first baby. What a roller coaster ride that was! After a friend had mentioned an article she had read about acupuncture and fertility I did a bit of reading on the Internet and came across your website. I had heard about acupuncture helping other health issues and decided that I should give it a try. I am so glad that I did. I remember telling my husband throughout the time I was coming to see you that I didn’t know if acupuncture was going to help me become pregnant but if nothing else I was feeling so good. Much better than I had in a long time. I felt like I had so much more energy.

In March 2006, we began our first IVF cycle. I was so nervous because almost everyone I had talked to said “It’s not likely to happen the first time.” So of course it’s almost like you have set yourself up for failure. I have to admit it did seem so out of reach because our hopes had been shot down so many times but with the help of family, friends, you, and everyone else at Acubalance, I felt confident that the route we were taking was the right one and I was doing everything possible to help our cycle. I truly feel that you helped us get “lucky” at our first try!!!! I remember coming in right after the transfer and you said to me as I was entering the room “take it easy, Mom, we have precious cargo in there.” I think I was almost as excited that day as the day we found out I was pregnant.

On January 2, 2008, our beautiful baby girl turned one. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support and encouragement. Mackenzie has blessed our family in ways I never knew were possible. Thank you so very much. I’ve attached a couple photos of Mackenzie for you to see. I hope all is well with you and everyone at Acubalance. Thank you again!!!
