Energy Back, No Hot Flashes, Sleeping At Night
Amy is 43 years old. She has a very stressful job as a social worker. She is often dealing with some heart wrenching cases -- good people down on their luck who need support and resources. She is always going the extra mile. When she first called she was having bad gas, constipation, was on Selexa. Her FSH was 15 and 2-3 nights a week she was having hot flashes. Her energy level (1-10) was a 5. Even with the Selexa she had anxiety and had had insomnia for years.
Ten months later she was taking the herbs, doing the exercises, etc. How she feels is very different: her energy is back; no constipation, sleeping through the night, no hot flashes at all. At the same time, no baby.
Then at eleven months I got the call: "I'm pregnant!" What a great moment.
"I'm pregnant. Actually I'm still kind of in shock. I am 7 weeks today. I wanted to wait, and actually I've also just been so busy I didn't have a chance to call you. I wanted to make sure this one is sticking. I was really ready going through these low feelings about having a baby for the last 3 months. You know, I'm feeling better, but maybe these herbs aren't working, or maybe they are. So what I ended up doing was going to Kaiser. I went to the fertility clinic and I actually signed on. They did the initial labs, blood work and stuff and I took a "Clomid Injection Class" to learn about what was going to happen. I walked out thinking "I do NOT want to do these injections. I felt "Oh, God". Everyone was so bleak there. All the nurses were such bad energy and burned out. I kept thinking "I do not want to do this". The next week I was just praying and crying. I went to my church to the special prayer service, and then.......sure enough........I got a positive.
What was also wierd is that Kaiser screwed up on my treatment plan. I was supposed to call the minute I got my period and I did, but of course their clinic was closed, because they close at 4 everyday. So I called in Monday and no one is reading my file and they are saying "well you missed the cycle so there is nothing we can do. You will have to wait until the next cycle. Then she put me on hold and she said, "Oh, by the way the doctor wants you to go on birth control." And I thought "No way!". That was the last straw. So I said to them, "I am not going on birth control. This is so not what I want to do. I want to have a baby. I don't want to stop the baby. They didn't give me an explanation of why. They just said, "This is what the doctor wants." So I said, "Let me just try this cycle myself without any of the clinics help to see what I can get." And sure enough.........I'm pregnant.
Obviously, we're excited! It's been a long road and we don't have a baby yet (due in late April), but going from doctors telling us it was impossible to have a baby on our own to 6 months later being told we're pregnant has been quite the journey. You were the one person who truly offered us a realistic/actionable hope that this was possible. While initially hesitant and unsure how effective these steps/herbs might be-the concern that the search for hope/answers might obscure logic/evidence, the bottom line is we saw results in one month with the disappearance of heat flashes and the resumption of a menstruation cycle. With this evidence, it told us something was happening to the body. We know how devastating this initial news was, and rightfully so, but we've come full circle and we're so overjoyed and grateful that conception has happened. We would certainly encourage anyone else going through this difficulty to give this process a chance to see for themselves. When you look at the cost of in-vitro, it makes sense on a few levels to give this method a chance of success, not to mention the satisfaction of producing your own offspring. While we're not out of the woods yet, we look forward to being added to the group who can give you baby pictures. Amanda, thank you so much for your genuine care/concern. We truly appreciated your upfront, honest thoughts and desire to help-it made a difference in our lives. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
Hi Amanda, you asked me at my last consult to check back with you at the end of the first week to see how things are going. Well things are going great! I started the hot water/lemon detox after I got off the phone with you and noticed an almost immediate decrease in the coughing. I did the hot water with some lemon for the past week and noticed a smooth, twice a day BM without drastically changing my diet. I have been taking Super Fertility #2 and Harmony(ordered 2 month supply last week) as directed along with acupuncture twice a week, daily ear exercise and lymphatic massage and am eating more veggies. I received the Cough & Bronchitis #1formula and Radiant Eight Energy Exercises early last week and have been taking formula 3 twice a day. The cough as of today is 95% gone and hot flashes/sweats are almost gone. I will start DVD this week as my last week was hectic. I am so impressed and happy with your formulas and plan to be on this program for 3 months before attempting another IVF transfer (January).
Hot flashes? Almost non-existent!! If I do get one a day it's a mild flush. My sleeping is better also. I usually wake up once a night the use the bathroom, but I go right back to sleep - I am so excited!!!
Two Months Later:
My hot flashes are still rarely there. I switched Harmony to Balance and that seems to be working better for me on many levels. I did not ovulate this month, but I understand that can happen. Still aiming for January transfer.
I am addicted to drinking hot water. (Who would have believed it!) I put a little sliver of lemon in it and I sip hot lemon water all day. I love it. And I remembered that a friend of mine told me about this several years ago. I asked how her mother had such beautiful skin. She had no wrinkles and her skin was so smooth and healthy looking. She told me her mother drank hot lemon water all the time and that was the secret!
Finally I would like to tell you that there is something that has been happening for me that it is something that gives me peace about this whole process. My mood is great. I can not describe it. I feel so good all the time. It is a peace. So I really feel, as much as I really, really want this child, that I am not wasting my time or my money on this.
I remember you told me this when we first started, but it is really not something I was looking for. It is very real and completely unexpected. I want to feel like this for the rest of my life.
