I think when us guys hear the words “fertility issue,” we tend to look for ways to fix what’s broken. My wife and I have been through the grinder and every test conceivable (<-yeah it’s a pun) for Western medicine. There was no easy fix for what was quickly starting to look like an “infertile couple.” Our last option was surrogacy but we still needed healthy eggs from my wife and good sperm from me to proceed. We asked around about what we could do to increase our chances of having success with creating healthy embryos.
Acupuncture was mentioned a few times so we gave it a whirl. It really was the best advice anyone gave us. We went for a few months of treatment and, in tandem with a fertility clinic, created several healthy embryos as a result. We now have a little girl that has just turned one. We can’t thank Alda and the rest of the team enough for helping us. They can truly make a difference.
Lastly, I encourage all couples to BOTH go for acupuncture. So often I see women at the fertility clinic on their own. I think it’s important for both partners to be there and go through the experience together.
I participated in an 8 week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction online program facilitated by Dr. Alda Ngo. It was the most amazing program I could take to help with my mindset and reduce stress. Over time with daily practice I noticed a shift in how I reacted to stressful events and being at peace with my health diagnoses. My sleep got better whereas before I would be up for 3-4 hours a night anxious over my health to the point that my multiple health diagnoses were affecting my daily life. Dr. Ngo is one of the most compassionate, kind and knowledgeable healthcare provider I have come across and trust me over the past 2.5 years I have seen more specialists than I can count.
THANK YOU for providing and facilitating an invaluable program!
