Dear Friends,I wish you a Happy and Safe New Year. Please drive safely and I’ll see you on the other side in 2009.If you do “accidently” overeat or over-indulge, remember to take your homeopathic Nux vomica 6C – 5 pills, 3X per day the next day. You can even take it before bed, and it should help your body to deal with rich foods, excessive sugar or alcohol. But please try and take care of your body. Right now, in these stressful times, it’s really much easier for the body/mind to cope, if you regulate what you put into your body.For a “natural high” try sitting quietly for about 5-10 minutes before and after midnight. In your quiet space, imagine some of the things you hope to accomplish in the coming year, and give yourself permission to forgive yourself for those things you were not yet able to accomplish in 2008.If you are with friends or loved ones, you can sit across from each other, or in a circle and hold hands. Try putting on some quiet, relaxing music, and letting your mind quiet.
This exercise is a really wonderful way to usher in the New Year and set some goals at the same time. Happy New Year, and My Best To You for a Healthy 2009!============================================And now, for a short, up-beat research article:
Acupuncture Increases In-Vitro Fertilization Pregnancy and Live Birth Rates
This is a meta-study of 1366 women who had in vitro fertilization. The women were divided into groups. One group received phony or sham acupuncture and the other group received real acupuncture. The researchers concluded with a 95% confidence rate that the group which received acupuncture given with embryo transfer, definitely improved the rates of pregnancy, and of live births among women undergoing in vitro fertilization.
