Research roundup

More and more research studies are proving how acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine enhance fertility and improve IVF outcomes

One of my favorite recent studies examined how "whole systems traditional Chinese medicine" (WSTCM) yields the best outcomes. This approach customizes the treatment to the individual, rather than using a rigid protocol. The researchers found WSTCM works significantly better than the standard acupuncture protocolspracticed at many fertility clinics. It is what we have always done at PSACH. Chinese medicine shines brightest when the treatment is matched to the individual. 

Finally, if you've always wanted to learn how to meditate, here's yet another reason. Physicians at Harvard University have found evidence that meditation may relieve the symptoms of IBS and IBD, common digestive diseases.
