Acupuncture and Herbal Meds?

Post by cookholmes » Sat Dec 30, 2006 11:07 am

I am presently doing acupucnture and I have read that quite a few people have done it, but what I want to know is if anyone is combining acupuncture with the herbal meds? The acupuncturist has prescribed them to me, but I am hesitant to take them, eventhough my (RE) Dr. said it would be ok.

TIA!
Denise

Denise,
I am doing accu too but I havent been prescribed any herbs. He said that he would work with my Dr if this doesnt work. He wants to get me on herbs for a couple month if I cycle again.

I love accu and I know it helps with relaxing and menstral cycle. I will let you know if it helps with implantation.

Good luck,
Jackie

Most acupunchrists perscribe herbs and most Dr say they are fine to take with ivf treatment but you must tell your Dr you are taking them.

I took herbs and acupunture and I dont really feel that the herbs did much for me but I swear by the acupunture. But hell I beleieve you should throw everything at infertility, from visiting holy sites to rubbing the bellies of fertility gods in the wax museum! :lol:

best wishes for the new year
