Three more months to go until

Three more months to go until our baby boy is here! I have had a great pregnancy so far. I have been feeling great almost the entire time. Thanks so much for everything. I had such a great experience with acupuncture and I’m a true believer that acupuncture helped with my infertility. I have spread the word about how great it was for me and have recommended it to anyone I know who is having infertility issues. I will be sure to send a picture once the little guy arrives! KM

Just wanted to say thank you for

Just wanted to say thank you for everything that you’ve done for me. You’ve helped me not only with my fertility issues, but helped me with my anxiety. Acupuncture and herbs have really changed my life! You are so good at what you do! I am forever grateful. I will still be stopping by from time to time for ‘fine tuning’ during my pregnancy. DD

ACRH was a God send to my husband

ACRH was a God send to my husband and I. We tried having a baby for over 17 months. We went through fertility treatments including 3 months of clomid with IUI’s…nothing worked. I’ve always been fond of “natural” treatments and decided to look into acupuncture. After talking with a few different acupuncture centers, my husband found ACRH. This was the only center we found that dealt specifically with infertility. We were excited BEFORE we even talked to Candace. Once we talked with Candace on the phone about our concerns we became even more excited and couldn’t wait to start. She made us feel so comfortable and confident. After walking in to her office depressed and frustrated, each week helped us to “lighten up”. Candace asked us to give her 6 months and we agreed. Only 3 months later, I was pregnant!!! I couldn’t believe it…until the morning sickness hit. If anyone out there is timid about acupuncture, I will be the first to tell you THAT IT WORKS…I am a true believer!! If you are in the same situation I was in, you have nothing to lose, it’s the best decision I ever made. Thank you Candace…if it wasn’t for you, I would probably still be sitting in the office of the fertility clinic, not to mention, in debt up to my eyeballs!! BN

I am sure that everyone can benefit from acupuncture. EB

They tested a day early, I still got positive beta (165), so I am pregnant!!! They checked my beta 2 more times, and it’s been more than doubling. I am so happy, its finally sinking in for both me and hubby what this really means 😉 We are both thinking that maybe we will be blessed with more than one. We are supposed to see at the u/s at the end of next week. I am definitely very happy to have done acupuncture prior and during the cycle. It was a really good experience for me. If I come across anyone going through IVF or trying to conceive, I will definitely recommend you. I am sure that everyone can benefit from acupuncture. EB

It has taken me awhile to write this because

It has taken me awhile to write this because part of me was worried that this was a dream! I AM PREGNANT!!!! After trying for almost a year, and being told because of my “advanced maternal age” (I’m only 35!) and high FSH that getting pregnant without an IUI or IVF would not be possible, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart because we are pregnant without an IUI or IVF! I remember the first time that I spoke with you on the phone; I instantly had a hope that I had lost many month before. That was the month after our failed IUI with injectibles cycle when I was told that we had to take a break because not only was I not pregnant but the medication left me with large cysts. We were devastated and I decided that I really wanted to give acupuncture and TCM herbs a try. At the same time we were preparing for IVF in a few months because the doctor told us that he thought that was our best shot after two failed IUI cycles. To our surprise, we did not need the specialist help…you were our miracle! I just entered my second trimester (13 weeks and 3 days today), and other than feeling tired and some night-time nausea I feel great….and blessed! Your ability to know what I needed and support me has been wonderful. I can never thank you enough. We are already talking about conceiving number two next year, and I will absolutely be working with you to achieve that pregnancy as well! Thank you Candace, thank you so much for helping me through such a struggle and giving me (us) hope. H.F.

I was getting acupuncture treatment

I was getting acupuncture treatment while going through my first IVF cycle. With your help I achieved a successful twin pregnancy. My babies are now 5 months old and such a joy. I truly believe that your acupuncture was part of the reason we were successful on the first try. They retrieved 17 eggs and implanted 2 embryos. Thanks again. CB

At a time when I was beginning to feel

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

After my incredible news

After my incredible news, I had to write something to say “THANK YOU”. As you know, prior to coming to you, I was told by my OB/GYN that I needed to go to a fertility specialist because my endometriosis was so bad and my cysts were so large (11cm) that it was going to be extremely difficult for me to get pregnant. After going to the fertility specialist, I was told that I would definitely need in-vitro fertilization, my husband and I decided at that point that we should try acupuncture, being that I was only 27 years old. When I met you, you were so positive and immediately provided me with a list of foods to avoid/include in my diet and it really changed my life. Between the acupuncture, the herbs, the diet change, and prayer, I became pregnant after trying for less than 2 months. Thanks also for the tip on using, it helped us immensely in predicting ovulation on my most fertile days. I am now 11 weeks pregnant and my husband and I are happier than ever now. We were amazed to see how quickly we became pregnant after hearing from 2 doctors that this could not happen without IVF. Since I have been pregnant, you have helped me through morning sickness, bloating, and mood swings which my husband thanks you for 🙂 Thank you again Candace for all your help and support, I will definitely keep you updated during this pregnancy and the next 🙂 –ID.

I tried one IUI and two IVF

I tried one IUI and two IVF cycles all had failed when I was referred to Candace to try acupuncture. Honestly, I was skeptical at first; but I was desperate to get pregnant and knew at 41, I was running out of time, had nothing to lose and everything to gain. Working with and meeting Candace is one of the best things that could have happened. After starting with Candace, I actually had one more failed IVF cycle and my insurance had run out so I decided to go back to IUI. Being told that the chance of me getting pregnant was “minuscule”, after my first IUI, I was pregnant! I truly believe that Candace’s therapy has made my dream come true I’m currently 13 weeks pregnant and expecting twins in the spring. Candace is an amazing person who is extremely dedicated to her profession. She went above and beyond coming in on her days off, weekends whatever it took to give me my best chance of getting pregnant; she makes you her #1 priority. Candace has an infectious positive spirit, which helped to keep me positive. I cannot recommend anyone more highly! Candace, I thank you from the bottom of my heart! — Janice H.

I am so happy that you emailed me

I am so happy that you emailed me…I kept thinking of calling you but it was never at a good time!! I am fine & PREGNANT!!! Can you believe it?? 6 weeks 4 days today. I feel fine. I have to thank you for everything. I went into acupuncture with a kind of closed mind, only really doing because Dr. Dlugi wanted me to, but I have to tell you that after meeting you and doing it for a few months, I really enjoyed it. You were always so supportive and positive. I looked forward to my appointments and can’t tell you how much I appreciate your help! I will definitely recommend it to anyone going through the world of infertility!! Again, I can’t thank you enough for all of your positive energy and support! I will definitely keep you posted on the next 9 months of my life! Let me know if anything changes for you – I know you are working to defy the odds and I have a feeling you just might do it! –L.D.
