Hopefully everyone had a great Turkey Day, some days off to relax or shop, and some days to enjoy the nice weather we have had. If you found yourself indulging in all the yummies from and leftover from Thanksgiving, and are now experiencing “off” digestion, let me remind you that acupuncture can quickly harmonize your digestive functions and help you feel better quickly, effectively and naturally. For those of you who have had acupuncture, you have probably experienced an active stomach once the needles are inserted. This goes to show how quickly the body responds to acupuncture and how it can quickly help you. There are some acupuncture points you can press at home to help settle a rumbly tummy, move food stagnation from overeating, relieve bloating, cramping, nausea, diarrhea or constipation.
“I went to Christine after experiencing a miscarriage the year before. My doctors would not say why I had a miscarriage, but they did diagnose me with low progesterone during that pregnancy. Despite taking progesterone supplements for a few months when trying again, I was not getting pregnant right away like I did the first time. I met with Christine, and she had me chart my temperatures which did in fact confirm some hormone imbalances. After seeing Christine for two months for acupuncture and taking prescribed herbs from her, I am happy to say I got pregnant again and all is going great. I am 15 weeks along, and I firmly believe that my treatment through Christine was a strong factor in having a successful pregnancy this time around.”
Are you thinking of having a bundle of joy any time soon? If so, it is important to take care of yourself now so that you and baby are healthy and happy! Many times, people come off their birth control pills/patch/ring expecting to conceive right away. If not then, then at least in the few months that follow. Some women are fortunate enough to have no issues making the transition from hormonal birth control to doing everything on their own smoothly and soundly. Others however need a little more adjustment time. This is actually an important time to have because bringing your body into balance sometimes takes time.
