I have two beautiful children thanks to the fantastic treatment I received at Dr. Wu's Healing Center. This book will explain how medical treatment at her clinic transformed me from an "infertile woman" as the Western doctors described me, into busy mother of two little boys. The methods Dr. Wu uses often seemed strange to me. I still don't understand how it all works, but I don't know exactly how my fax machine works either. I simply know that it does. I am currently involved with my third round - hoping for baby #3. My story is in her book. My book name is Lila and my children are called John and Tanner. If you are struggling with infertility, read this book! Gotta go..crying baby! :-)

I've purchased and read a large number of infertilty books (over 25): some good, some useless, and some which offer unique enough information to become a part of my small collection. The rest I give away. This one is a real keeper. Good Chinese medicine diet tips (different from western diet tips) plus exercises, abdominal massage tips, success stories, acupuncture benefits, etc. Highy recommended!

This is an amazing book. Well written and a pleasure to read. Covers all of the things that I did to give birth to a gorgeous, perfect child 1 year after being told by Western fertility experts that this could never happen. I LOVE this book. Buy it, go for it ( find an acupuncturist, change your diet, follow the mind-body exercises ) and make sure to pass on the info.

This book is a must-read for anyone planning to become pregnant, whether you've had fertility complications or not. In helping readers understand how to better prepare ourselves (in body, mind, and spirit) to "attract new life," Dr. Wu succeeds in putting us on the path to good physical health in general. Almost everything you learn in this book - for men and women alike - is applicable to life after babies as well! You'll discover the benefits of eating a diet (recipes included) influenced by Traditional Chinese Medicine. You'll get meaningful tips on how to harmonize your environment by clearing clutter. You'll learn exercises and acupressure techniques - all of these specifically to encourage vitality and fertility.

Reading this book was pure pleasure. While her self-references are always strikingly humble, it's clear from the authoritative tone and ample real-life case examples that this author is an expert in her field.

After struggling with secondary infertility for 1 year, I had given up on conventional medicine and turned to TCM. I read this book (as well as some others) and immediately made an appointment with a local accupuncturist. After 3 months of accupuncture, modifying my diet and taking chinese herbs, I was pregnant. Baby #2 was born healthy just 6 weeks ago and he will always by my "accu baby". Buy the book - trust your body and give Traditional Chinese Medicine a chance to work for you!

After having difficulty conceiving in my early thirties, my husband and I sought out fertility drugs accompanied with artificial insemination on two occasions originally. One of which was successful, only to end in miscarriage. I switched providers including doctors and attempted a third session when the doctor asked to run my blood work when the Clomid didn't seem to be working. My blood work came back with what the doctor said was an elevated FSH. (I believe it was at about 17.) The doctor was baffled because despite the elevated FSH another test taken during the same draw revealed I had indeed ovulated. After running blood tests a second time, my FSH was even higher. The first thing the doctor said after reviewing the results is "you have little to no chance of getting pregnant with that FSH level and you will need to seek out donor eggs of a young 25 year old if you really want to get pregnant." I was officially diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Failure and devastated to say the least. Soon after, I began experiencing strong hot flashes. I saw yet another Western doctor and the hormonal imbalance was deemed as Premenopause. He even gave me estrogen patches which made them lessen in duration, frequency and strength but all that he could do was offer to supply more drugs at varying strengths to try and get it under control. Even then I couldn't yet throw in the towel and saw an endocrine specialist who had blood work done and my FSH had elevated to 100+ by this time. Although, overall a terrible story, I'm grateful for the painful journey because it actually brought me into the vast entity of Eastern medicine and ultimately to the graces of Dr. Wu's practice.Read more ›

This book on its own won't get anyone pregnant. It's an interesting overview of one acupuncturist's advice. And it will give you a lot to work on. This is good because often women facing fertility issues feel helpless and want something to do that feels like they are able to take more control over this process.

However, going to a regular acupuncturist will be more fruitful than reading the book...unless you feel like following her rather strict rules regarding food choices. No more ice cream, ever.

When she got to the feng shui part of the book, she kind of lost me. I'm absolutely sure that the universe does not care enough about what's under my bed for that to impede conception.
