Jesus. What a difference a day makes. Somehow recieved the book I ordered off of Amazon (1 day later!?!) and it couldn't have come at a better time. The Infertility Cure by Randine Lewis gave me more answers than the last 3 months of bloodwork, probing, HSG's and prednisone ever could. The book is amazing. I have known for several months that something just wasn't right with my body, specifically my in my pelvic area, things are all twisted and tender and I've never experienced that before. After telling Dr. P about it, he basically laughed in my face and told me there was really no way to "prove"that. Why in the F should I have to prove anything? Plus, after being told he "wasn't aware" of any natural ways to lower an autoimmunity, I was pretty much out. You mean to tell me you want to infuse my body with a synthetic for 5 months, extract eggs from my ovaries, fertilize them and then implant them back in to me and you don't have a SINGLE suggestion about dietary changes or physical activity? Really? Nothin'?
So I read until 1am. I couldn't stop. The immune system chapter was written for me. I was amazed by the clarity I got just from reading this woman's expertise, opinion, and findings. So I made an appointment to see an acupuncturist (I am abbreviating to "ACPIST" from now on, that's just too much thinking) and was able to get in today. What a game-changer. This woman was very comforting, very knowledgeable, and most of all, supportive. She asked me a whole slew of questions, took my pulse and we discussed a plan for diet, exercise, sexual activity and fertility.
One aspect that absolutely blew my mind was the NKa strength. She told me to stop "trying" for 3 months and give my system a break. She said that the NKa's were attacking because they have been conditioned to do so, they are ready for that egg every month! She also added that women in China "stop" for longer than that in order to quiet the response. Unreal. No prednisone, no steroids, no suppressions, just straight forward information. She put me on the table, popped those needles in, and I was off to sleep. It was a fantastic experience.
She included a 2 week supply of herbs, a diet plan, some literature, and I left feeling better than I had in the 13 times I had walked out of a doctor's office in the last 71 days.
Not only am I taking a break from trying, I am taking a much needed hiatus from rude medical assistants, hurried nurses, and most of all, insensitive, scamming doctors. At this point, I would rather heal my body and get balanced than to even think of having a child at this point anyway.
Today was a good day.
