The title of the book is The Infertility Cure by Radine Lewis here's an Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Infertility-Cu...8157200&sr=1-1

I really do believe that reading that book and working very hard to do what I could from it is why I'm preg. now. (I did major diet changes for months, accupressure to myself and then I read what western med suggestions she had for my issues and followed those).

I'm waiting to get my copy of this book from the library. It looks like a number of you went on to get pregnant and have babies so I was just wondering if there are any success stories especially from mamas who had previous miscarriages and especially from any of you who were considered "old". I'm 45 yo. I don't seem to have a problem getting pregnant, it's just keeping the babies that is the problem. I have one DD who I had at 39 yo and since then I've had 4 m/cs. We've pretty much given up but when I heard about this book from another post and checked out the website, it gave me some hope. Anybody out there who can give me more hope? Please. TIA Stacey

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~~~~
