Hi there ladies,
I haven't read through the entire thread yet but I wanted to pop in and say hello. I swear that this plan helped us get our BFP.
I have endo...and as I'm 37, I also had some kidney qi and spleen qi issues. I followed all the diet recommendations and I incorporated the suggested supplements...Whoa...my kitchen counter looked like a pharmacy, with all the bottles. I was seeing an acupuncturist once a week from March on and I was also stimulating the necessary acupressure points Lewis recommended in her book (starting in June/July)...my TCM doc prescribed herbs to clear up the blood stasis (endo) in July. I also started taking other supps recommended by Lewis, namely the pycnogenol, royal jelly, wheatgrass (ugh), siberian ginseng (spleen qi), astragalus (spleen qi), milk thistle (to help my liver, I was on this before anyway and knew my liver needed help with clear the extra estrogen), nettle tea, red raspberry leaf tea, and the chinese combos Hsiao Yao Wan/Xiao Yao San (Rambling Powder) for my liver and Gui Zhi Fu LingWan (Cinnamon Twig and Poria Decoction) for the endo, which tasted so vile, but helped a lot.
Within one cycle on the herbs, my endo pain had gone and I had tons more energy and felt better than I had in ages. We started TTCing in August and got pg the first cycle...
I really think Lewis' approach has a lot to offer...just wanted to share my story and wish you all the best... ~~~~babydust~~~~
