“For more than a year, my regular doctor tried to fix my problem with infertility and irregular monthlies through medication—which made my problems worse. He referred me to a specialist, who proceeded to give me test after test each month with no real results. He started labeling me as “infertile with no known reason” and began bringing up the topic of IVF and more intense treatments, which may result in pregnancy but would do nothing for my painful and too-irregular bleeding. Fortunately, a friend recommended acupuncture to me, and after some research, it became obvious that Cassandra was one of the best in the business. It took me more than an hour to drive to her office, and despite the information she gave me about infertility, health, diet, and keeping track of symptoms (which my other doctors had never mentioned), I was still dubious that some herbs and slender needles would make a difference.
In about three months, she turned my health around in a way that a year and a half with my regular doctor and the specialist hadn’t been able to do. My menses were regular, and my basal body temperature showed that I was ovulating—something my specialist had worried I wouldn’t be able to do.
In six months, I was pregnant.
My only regret is that I didn’t go to Cassandra sooner. Since my experience, I’ve become very outspoken about the benefits of acupuncture, and many friends have said they’ve had similar results. Acupuncture has, without a doubt, changed my life for the better, and given me the family I’d been praying years for.”
