I had my first acupuncture treatment this afternoon!
My RE never specifically recommended that I get it but I kept seeing fliers in his office and of course reading about all of my fellow bloggers experiences with it. I decided that even if it doesn’t help THAT much, it can’t hurt!
The acupuncturist went over my history and thinks my liver might be playing a part in my infertility. He said the way my body reacted to Metformin (elevated liver enzymes) could be a clue. I’ve also been having a lot of digestive issues for the past several months.
His first suggestions were to cut out my daily diet coke and pretty much all caffeine. He also wants me to try to stop eating bread and animal dairy…um…really? I’ve cut out carbs before but carbs and dairy?! I going to try to cut back but I’m not sure I can cut everything completely. Also, drink 3 liters of water a day. I drink about 2 now and I’m already peeing every 20 minutes so that should be fun.
In addition to all that, I also spent a small fortune on vitamins/supplements today:
Multi-vitamin 1 per day
B-complex 1 per day
Nutra Flax 4 per day
NAC 2 per day
DIM-PRO 100 1 per day
A1 Enzymes 2 per day
Shu Gan Formula 6 per day
Is anyone familiar with any of these? He said they are mostly for liver support, digestion, and inflammation.
He wants me to stop my Prenatal in favor for the multi-vitamin and stop my Biotin and Fish Oil. I’m not sure how I feel about stopping the Prenatal. What do you guys think?
