I’d like to share an inspiring success story (with permission of course), of the commitment to the health of one of my patients. She had been trying to conceive a baby for 1 year when I started seeing her last November. At that point, biologically speaking, her hormone levels were a bit off balance, and adrenal glands (the stress glands) were fatigued. She was running a successful business, had a fantastic marriage, and wanted to be pregnant yesterday. For this particular patient, we started with medicinal foods to increase her estrogen to progesterone ratio, a gentle liver detox for hormonal balance and to rid toxins, and added specific supplements to support hormones, and her stress response. Her homework, was to meditate and visualize her ideal outcome everyday, along with exercise, and spending time on herself, for herself. As she stated to me, if she doesn’t make space in her life, how was a baby going to come along?! So she diligently made time to enjoy life, on top of her very busy schedule. We also started a 6 week acupuncture protocol, focusing on fertility, and worked on finding her a constitutional homeopathic remedy. Her specific remedy, could only be found in England, so I ordered that, and we waited. Before the homeopathic remedy arrived, I got the call…”Donata, I’m Pregnant!!!” and in January, we welcomed baby Isaac to the world! This is my favourite story of the impact one can have when they put their full focus, attention, and intention on their health, and the power of wholistic medicine. She understood that we could not chase the outcome, rather, build up her health and well-being, and the offspring of that would come naturally.
