    A Lifeline!!!

    It is highly practical, user friendly and restores hope. There are questions that you answer and based on your answer, you are 'diagnosed' with a certain deficiency or such. It then addresses diet, acupressure points, herbs and such in response to your particular imbalance. It also addresses various Western diagnoses of infertility and responds to each of those with diet, herbs and acupressure points and remedies. If you feel like you are in need of hope in the infertility struggle, PLEASE get this book! Dr. Lewis is on the cutting edge here with 3,000 year old practices! And, beyond all that, you can't beat the price for such hope.

    Dr. Lewis will show you that you are NOT Infertile

    Dr. Lewis opens her book, on page 9, with a bold-text statement: 'There is no such thing as infertility; it is a myth!' The text, complete with scientific explanations and personal stories of countless former patients who have achieved pregnancy, goes on to convince you of this belief. This book is designed as both an education in the Traditional Chinese Medicine approach to the human body, in general, and fertility, specifically, as well as a self-help primer to guide you toward your own fertility. Through Dr. Lewis' diagnostic questionnaire and text, you will identify patterns of symptoms that correlate with your specific imbalances. Often these symptoms would not even seem to be related to your status of having difficulty conceiving. For example, who would have thought that cold feet at night would be a pertinent symptom that needs to be addressed to achieve pregnancy? That's the beauty of this approach, it treats your entire body. For it is your whole being that needs to be balanced in order to achieve the pregnancy that you desire. Once you have identified your imbalance pattern, you can essentially skip to the text that tells you how to treat it. Beware, however, that some of your symptoms may overlap between patterns and it can be confusing at times. Thus, it would be recommended that you also seek the guidance of a licensed acupuncturist who can help you understand your pattern. Perhaps most encouraging is the fact that Dr. Lewis' patients have experienced approximately a 75% success rate of achieving pregnancy. Keep in mind that these are patients who often turned to traditional Chinese medicine after years of failed Western procedures. The approach is empowering, but does require a commitment on your part. You will be asked to change your diet, to modify your exercise routine to include restorative exercise (yoga, Qi Gong), to address your stress levels and implement the tough changes that may be required to lower them, to perform self-administered acupressure or to begin acupuncture, and to begin relaxation techniques. But, the sacrifices you make now might not only help you to conceive, but surely will make you feel more hopeful, empowered, healthy, and whole. This is a text I would recommend for every woman struggling with infertility. Even if you are planning to undergo an ART procedure, this approach can help you to balance your body to bring a healthier you to your R.E.'s table.

    Interesting concepts

    When Dr. Randine Lewis used millenniums old Chinese techniques to help her conceive, she later visited China to learn first hand more about Chinese medical practices. There she worked with local doctors assisting Chinese women with reproductive problems while studying infertility remedies. In Houston she opened up the Eastern Harmony Clinic for reproductive enhancement. Dr. Lewis claims her combining Chinese techniques with western medical knowledge have resulted in a success rate of 75%, well above the average.................................... THE INFERTILITY CURE provides an easy to follow self help guide that individuals can use to increase their potential for reproductive success. There is also numerous line drawings that augment the already easy to follow reference book. However, the key to the tome is that Dr. Lewis considers the whole person based on a philosophy that a healthy woman with a positive attitude has a greater chance of triumph in this endeavor or any for that matter than someone who is depressed and lamenting over failures. The book enables the individual to diagnose via detailed a questionnairelisting specific problems. This is followed up by a diet, acupressure techniques, and consumption of herbs to ensure a harmonious healthy body. Though the person should still see their doctor especially to discuss the use of herbs, Dr. Lewis¿ book is easy to follow and more important easy to use............................. Harriet Klausner

    It's about time!

    I became pregnant with Chinese medicine after IVF procedures didn't work for me. I've been waiting for an explanation and here's why! This book will become my bible for my next attempt. Thank you, Dr. Lewis
