My Wife and I first came to Acubalance at the recommendation of our fertility specialist. We both had underlying health issues that were preventing us from achieving a natural pregnancy. For myself, I had been experiencing severe headaches, fatigue, irritability, dizziness, vertigo and eye pain for over 2 years. Along with this, I was getting abnormal semen results, specifically low count, poor morphology and high white blood cell count.
I had been to numerous doctors and specialists trying to figure out what was wrong with me. I had no history of infection or injury, it was a mystery. I had some suspicion of a Lyme or similar viral related infection. I had all of the definitive symptoms, but it is a very difficult disease to diagnose, and if this was the case, it is really about symptom management.
To say the least, I was very frustrated and I just wanted to feel normal again, not to mention that my Wife and I could not get pregnant.
When I first met Dr. Ryan Funk, I was very apprehensive if acupuncture treatment would help. Nothing else had worked to date and this was my last shot. Ryan consulted with me and recommended acupuncture treatment, along with a strict anti-inflammatory diet for several consecutive weeks. The result: I had not felt this good in years ! to make it even better, my semen results had improved dramatically.
Six weeks later, and 2 IUI treatments my Wife and I were pregnant! I couldn't believe it.
I hope this story helps other men out there going through similar issues. I am a firm believer now in the power of inflammation management and a healthy diet. This is the foundation of any healthy lifestyle.
