My wife is going to a new acupuncturist in parallel to our upcoming round of IVF. Our Doctor said he is a proponent of such alternative treatments, but does not enforce it. We figure if it can help, why not? The incremental cost is negligible in comparison to the IVF fees, and my wife derives a sense of calm from the experience (something that she desperately needs)
My wife was referred to a different acupuncturist than the one she saw during our IUIs - her first appointment was yesterday. She enjoyed it.
The acupuncturist recommended a number of organic supplements for my wife, including wheat grass juice, blue green algae, lots of green vegetables, and others. I used to drink wheat grass juice in my early twenties, when I was working out a lot, and had a wildly polarized health regimen (wheat grass juice and workout in the morning, beer and chewing tobacco at night) Those were the days. It's good stuff, and the health benefits seem to be overwhelming (there are skeptics, however)
Any of you drink wheat grass juice? Any of you grow your own? It's expensive at $2.25 per 1 oz. shot - I'm wondering if we should just grow the stuff at home, and get a juicer ... sort of a voodoo / witchraft thing to do, but if it helps ...
