Nourishing Fertility: An A-to-Z Guide is an e-book with 37 pages of fertility tips. You can purchase it for only $5.99 in our store!
Each section, from A-to-Z, in this Nourishing Fertility e-book is filled with fertility tips based on my experience as a fertility acupuncturist and clinic director at Blossom Clinic. The intention of the alphabetical layout is to read one section each day and spend a few minutes reflecting on what you’ve read. I’ve included links for further reading if you feel inclined.
It is really important to me when working with my patients that people are not overwhelmed with too much information all at once. Often fertility patients take a very “yang” or active approach to infertility. I notice this reflected in the titles of blog posts and books, where they use strong words like “conquering”, “fighting”, “chasing”, and “challenge”. Patients make great efforts to go on certain diets, remove certain foods from their lives, and scour the Internet for that one herb that will “fix” everything, all the while depriving themselves of nurturance and connection: the “yin”. Sound familiar? You will see a common thread in this little e-book and that is one of nurturance.
Even if you feel like you have tried everything, I hope you will find some resolution in this list. That is my greatest intention for you. And please, if it overwhelms you, take a few days or longer to reflect on each section. We are told too often in our lives that we should try this or that, and that we are not enough. That thinking has no place here.
