Assisted conception is becoming more and more common and many people believe that IVF automatically results in pregnancy.  However as anyone involved in fertility will tell you, conception is not always easy and there are a number of things that can affect fertility. 

IVF is costly, so to be better prepared is not only good for your health, but also your wealth.  Research suggests that people who receive Acupuncture pre and post IVF procedures, better their chances of a successful full term pregnancy.   Acupuncture during IVF is time sensitive though, so what is the best timing for your acupuncture appointments and the reasoning behind them???

Most of us have had either a migraine or headache at some point, but if you are someone that suffers regularly from the dreaded head beast, then it’s time to get over it.

 

Headaches and migraines are usually classified as either primary or secondary. Primary headaches are generally caused by stress, tension, over exertion or hormonal imbalances, where as secondary are usually as a result of another condition, such as sinus infection, trauma, dental disease or tumour. Secondary headaches are of course a serious concern and if they are also followed by fever, severe dizziness, fainting, vomiting without nausea or are a follow on from a trauma then emergency protocols may be necessary.
