I absolutely love when you meet people who go above and beyond to do their job & do it well. I like it even more when it’s someone who is helping me fight this Infertility battle!!
Yesterday I went for my weekly acupuncture with my awesome acupuncturist, and the first thing I see is that she has bought a copy of The Infertility Cure, which is a book I referenced at my first appointment about a month ago as being awesome and informative and key in me deciding to try out the eastern medicine way of doing things. Not only had she bought it, but you could see lots of page markers and highlights and notes in the margins – she LOVED the book, and it made me feel good that I was reading a quality book and it wasn’t a crappy recommendation. At any rate, for those of you who have read it, while she had the needles in me, she went through the extensive checklist in the book – just to make sure she had covered everything.
Basically, it just reaffirmed the fact that I have a blood deficiency & yin deficiency. Exactly what we’ve been working on treating!
After my appointment was over, I was getting ready to leave and she said, Hey – do you have time to pick some fresh greens? I have a ton ready right now & it’s at it’s most flavorful right now!
She promptly went out and cut me a bunch of chard because I had a dish I wanted to try with that. Here it is!
