These are the emails that I absolutely long for when I open up my gmail inbox, it is truly why I do what I do. I get to share in the feeling that a couple has when they have found out that they are pregnant, that their dreams of having a family have come to fruition. Please spend a short moment after you read this to send love and prayers to those of my clients still waiting for this wonderful blessing. Thank you.

I love watching the deeper healing that happens in my clients after a strong trust is formed, commitment to treatment is established, and a movement beyond mere physical health begins. The following is a email I received from a client after sending her a recommendation to watch the documentary 'Hungry for Change'. The later in italics is my response.

The 'fertility diet' in a nutshell (keep reading). An old client of mine just requested an appointment as they are starting down the path to baby #2. When I haven't seen someone in a while I always get them to fill out my intake forms, again, as people change and Chinese medicine takes a close look at each person head-to-toe, to determine where things are at at that moment in time, so as to implement effective individualized treatment...

I recently posted about 4 clients telling me they were pregnant in 2 days, well, that has increased to 12 women pregnant in the last 2 weeks. Yes, I am astonished and over the moon with the positive energy surging through my practice. I could not be more grateful, elated, and beaming with faith. I surrender at the amazing powers that are at play.

Finally there is a simple way to explain how acupuncture reduces stress. Researchers from Georgetown University prove something everyone that has ever had acupuncture already knows. This can and will now be linked to how acupuncture has beneficial effect with women experiencing infertility.

Not sure what is happening within this last week as far as astrology is concerned but within 2 days I had 4 ladies inform me that they are pregnant, all naturally! These are all women who really dug deep and did the work necessary to optimize their chances of receiving this gift. I am grateful to have been a part of their journey toward creating and expanding their families.

Today I am grateful. This week marks the true integration of traditional Chinese and modern Western reproductive medicine in Vancouver / Burnaby. My acupuncture clinic within the walls of PCRM (a premier In Vitro Fertilization clinic in BC) is finally opening. It is a beautiful space I will be sharing with a fellow naturopath, urologist, and a high risk obstetrician. I am very excited to see a huge leap forward in the way patients are cared for, particularly in the field of fertility.

Today, as most days in my life, I feel very blessed. I have the opportunity to help people that are trying to create or expand their families.
It is sunday night and I honestly love sitting down in front of my computer to be sure that any current, past, or potential clients get my focused response to any questions or needs they may have.
Tonight I made the extra effort, as I often do, to call a woman that I could tell really needed to talk to someone about her current IVF cycle, her poor response so far, and what could possibly be done to help.
