Great news! One of my patients is expecting again. Her dad told me this morning. A little over two years ago his daughter told me how she and her husband had been trying for seven years to have a baby. I told her that I had had success with three other patients in increasing their fertility through chiropractic care and acupuncture. There was one condition, if we were successful, she was not to go around saying her chiropractor got her pregnant:-).
We began by addressing her hyperthyroid problem nutritionally and with acupuncture. Her cycles were very irregular and hard on her. Then we did a course of treatment which included treating the husband also. Her monthly cycles began to improve and her mood swings began to improve too. It took a lot longer than I had expected, about eleven months and about 45 treatments in all. However, a few months after the treatments ended she was pregnant and is now expecting a second baby.
I would recommend anyone who is having trouble conceiving to try chiropractic and acupuncture first. No one, of course, can guarantee results, but so far, by God's grace, I have been able to help every patient who has wanted a baby but was not able to conceive. My patient payed around $2500 for all the care she received. Compare that with fertility clinics that charge $50,000 or more and, hands down, chiropractic is the best option.
