At a time when I was beginning to feel defeated by infertility, I learned about acupuncture and found Candace. At 30 yrs old and healthy, I was becoming very frustrated after trying for 17 months to have a baby. I suffered a miscarriage early on and tried several infertility treatments including a round of Clomid and Injectables. I was in despair. Frustration, stress and anxiety took over my day to day life. I couldn’t understand why I was not getting pregnant and the doctors could find nothing wrong with me. I decided I needed some peace and calm in my life so I signed up for a yoga class and began researching acupuncture. I first met with a local acupuncturist who I felt no connection with and he did not specialize in reproductive health. I asked SIRM to recommend someone and that is how I found Candace. Upon our first meeting, I instantly felt a connection with her. She was warm and understanding; she understood exactly how I was feeling. She listened intently and put together a schedule of weekly acupuncture sessions, herbs and gave me a list of foods I should eat. I admit I was very nervous for my first session but Candace was so gentle and kind that in no time I looked forward to getting treatments. The treatments made me feel so calm and relaxed. The herbs and acupuncture helped balance my body along with my new healthy diet. 7 weekly treatments later I was pregnant, naturally –without any invasive treatments or drugs. I continue to see Candace for acupuncture treatments to help ease my worries of the 1st trimester. She truly helped change my life and I cannot express enough thanks. –MEK
