Chesdei Hashem. What wonderful good news!
Tamar came to me for fertility treatments three months ago. Her periods were very irregular and she had been diagnosed with Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). She was seeing a infertility doctor and was about to start a fertility treatment.
The first thing that we did was have a long talk about nutrition and the importance of exercise. I performed reflexology and ATMAT on her and taught her ATMAT’s self-care abdominal massage. I gently reminded her the importance of being positive, having faith, praying, and of course Shalom Bayit (Peace in the Home).
Unfortunately the medications that Tamar took over-stimulated her ovaries and the month was a difficult. At our next months session I suggested to her to take a break from the fertility drugs and give the massages and diet/exercise a try for three months. I asked her to start taking Agnus Catus (Vitex) and some vitamin supplements. She and her husband decided that they would give the “natural way” a try and we worked on the idea of making her a healthy, balanced vessel, not just on getting pregnant.
She came to me twice a month for another cycle. We waited to see what would happen. She started losing weight and felt good, which in itself is a wonderful feat.
Another month passed. Tamar and her husband went on a vacation.
When she came back she told me that she wasn’t sure what happened-if she ovulated or not, etc. She also wanted to go back to fertility drugs and asked me what I thought. Honestly, especially in her case, I wasn’t thrilled about the decision, but it was her decision and I told her that I supported her with whatever treatment option she felt that she needed to do. I encouraged her to keep up with the diet, the exercise, the self-care massage, and to be in contact with me. Well, that was last week and this week I got a wonderful call from Tamar as she stepped out of the ultrasound to see where she was in her cycle (to know when to start taking ovulation drugs). She was six weeks pregnant!!!!
The yeshua (salvation) is here even before we realize it….
