Today, I went to my consultation with a renowned Chinese Medicine Fertility Specialist. We discussed my fertility issues, my goals and acupuncture treatments.
After the consultation, I had to lie on the bed and the doctor checked my tongue and said that I had circulation issues. SAY WHAT? You got all that from looking at my tongue. He examined me and determined that I also have a kidney deficiency. He suggested that I do acupuncture twice weekly for a month to get my body regulated. He feels that this will increase my circulation and help extend my periods to 28 days because right now they are about 18-20 days apart.
The doctor put the needles in my neck, my forehead, knees, legs, feet, and my abdomen. Then the doctor placed a heater device a few feet above my tummy and left it on during the 45 min session. I just laid there and listened to the sounds of waves. Next time I will bring my earbuds so that I can listen to the music on my phone ! 45 minutes is a long time to listen to waves LOL.
After the time was up, the doctor and I discussed him giving me an herbal pill or tea to help regulate my body. He created a special herbal fertility blend just for me. He put the herbs in separate brown bags and gave me an instruction sheet on prepping the tea. I have to simmer it in a pot for 20 mins and pour it into a container and then add 3 more cups of water to the herbs and simmer it for 20 mins and then pour the tea off into the same container. I split the amount into two and drink for two days.
The herbs smell divine but definitely so not look like the stuff they sell in stores !
I was told to watch the amount of protein I eat, as it is hard on my kidneys and to not eat anything raw nor cold. I am to eat and drink only warm foods/drinks. I must also increase my fluid intake to balance the protein intake.
