When I first started treatment at Acubalance, I had just had a miscarriage at 16 weeks and I was devastated. I was 40 years old and was already feeling pretty lucky to be pregnant in the first place. I wanted so much to try again, but was so anxious and worried about going through the same thing again.

That’s when I started treatment with Alda at Acubalance, and it was the best thing I could have done. She suggested that we wait a few months before trying again and taking that time to let my body get back into balance and focusing on preconception health to support the healthiest conception and pregnancy possible.

"It also felt so good to know that I was doing everything I could.."

My husband and I did a cleanse, which felt great and I did weekly acupuncture and drank herbs every day. I could really see and feel the effects of the treatment. My periods became very regular and looked healthy. I used to suffer from tension headaches all the time, and I would get terrible migraine headaches before and during my periods as well. But right away the tension headaches improved and went away and the migraines disappeared the next cycle after I started treatment! I also used to have constipation, but that went away with treatment too.

The acupuncture and herbs and the diet changes made such a difference in helping me and my body to become more healthy and ready for a healthy baby. It also felt so good to know that I was doing everything I could to support that.

I did end up getting pregnant again, and now have a beautiful son! I am so grateful to Alda for helping me along the way, she was so informative and patient and caring. I felt so helpless before and she really helped me to feel empowered and less anxious. Thank you Alda!
