Hope you are well. We were just thinking about you the other day when my husband mentioned how our boys are like “tanks”, and how you told us one time, long before I was pregnant, how we’d want to have babies that are “tanks” (sturdy and resilient). Our boys are doing great- healthy, happy, good-natured babies, and at their 9-month appointment they came in at 60s-80s percentile for weight and height. Thought you’d like to see a picture of them.
Thank you again for all you did to help us get them here, and for helping us lay a foundation for healthy eating for them as well as us.
I came to Oriental Health Solutions for acupuncture treatment to complement my IVF cycles for infertility. I am a labor and delivery registered nurse and my practitioner taught me so much more than I anticipated! Before coming to OHS, I went through five unsuccessful rounds of IVF and one pregnancy loss. I achieved pregnancy on both IVF cycles that I was treated with acupuncture and am currently 7 months along with a very healthy, complication free twin pregnancy. I have told all of my friends about OHS and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for acupuncture treatment for infertility and/or other female issues. I can’t say enough good things about my acupuncture therapy.J.H., Kaneohe, HI
The babies are thriving. My daughter was 6lbs 10oz, 21 inches, and has lungs like you would not believe. My son was 5lbs 10oz and 20 inches. He’s as mellow as can be, he smiles and giggles in his dreams a lot.
I can’t thank you enough for helping us achieve such a monumental and lifechanging event. We’re parents, we’re part of the club of life and no matter what hurdles we must overcome its all part of the journey that we’ve longed for. I just have to say you’ll forever be in our hearts!! Ive never cried so much in my life. These hormones are powerful!!
Well, GREAT NEWS!! I had a positive pregnancy test today!!!
My HCG was at 153 and the doctor said that was perfect. I am having more blood work done on Saturday.
Thanks y’all both so much! I am a firm believer that acupuncture aided in this wonderful outcome!
Yes, she’s having her sixth birthday and it’s a very good one. Always think of you fondly on our daughter’s birthday. Thank you so much for helping her get into this world!D.F., Chapel Hill, NC
We wish miracles for you this holy season and in the New Year. Thank you for helping to make our family possible! We love you!S.G., Raleigh, NC
Thank you so much for helping us to bring such a healthy and happy child into this world and for your continued support. It’s been such a pleasure working with you. You all are the best at what you do for us and our community is so lucky to have you.
Wishing you all much love, happiness + good health in 2012!L.Z., Chapel Hill, NC
With sincere appreciation – it’s a boy!!! Thank you so much for all of your help, advice & expertise! I really believe this may not have happened for us if we hadn’t found you.
Sincerely,T. & F. F., Chapel Hill, NC
I hope you are doing well. I’m excited to see you on Monday night because I have good news. After a couple days of feeling different, I woke up this morning and took a pregnancy test and it was positive. I can’t believe this happened so fast. I can’t thank you enough for all your help.
I also wanted to give you a heads up that I’ll be traveling for work Tuesday - Friday, so we may have to do something different with the herbs.
See you Monday night,
Glad to see u in fb!! Hope all is well with u. As for us, our boys keep us on our toes 24/7, n loving them dearly. Thank you very much for all that u have done for us. We’ll never forget you. We hope you have a Joyous Christmas and a Blessed New Year!!!
My husband and I will be leaving the area next month. I wanted to thank you very much for everything you have done. You are very good at what you do and have a wonderful caring personality. You answered so many of my questions and taught me so much. I do not believe that I would have been able to get pregnant without your help! Thank you! When the baby is born in Feb 2010 we will send you a photo and update. I wish you the best in your practice!
This morning’s ultrasound showed TWO healthy little heartbeats! We’re expecting twins! We’re so excited. Wanted to be sure you heard the good news. I’ve attached the ultrasound images, because I knew you’d appreciate seeing those. Wish you could have seen those little heartbeats go!
From the first time I drove up to your clinic, I was intrigued by the tagline: “Expect Great Results.” Since them, I’ve been consistently fascinated with how well you deliver on that promise.
See you next week!
I AM PREGNANT!!!!! And we’re absolutely silly and happy about it!
THANK YOU for everything you’ve done to help us get here. We absolutely wouldn’t be in this wonderful place without you.
Please let me know when I need to make my next appointment, and then I can be silly and happy with you too!!!
Just thought you might like an update: baseline ultrasound revealed SIXTEEN potential follicles!!!!!!!
(I hope you realize that I am not normally one for exclamation points, but this rather seems to merit an overabundance thereof, to match the follicles). I know they won’t all be viable, or develop; but this is almost twice my largest number since we started, so it’s pretty exciting
:>) (I’m also not one for emoticons, but the same applies~)S. T., Chapel Hill, NC
I had my blood test yesterday and it was positive!!! My hCG level was 136.3 and my progesterone >45, which they said was fine. I go back tomorrow to get it checked again.
Thank you so much for all your help - I don’t think I’d have gotten this wonderful news if not for you! I will see you next week on the 8th - I want to do everything possible to make this stick!
Best,T.V., Durham, NC
Here’s a picture of the twins. I ended up delivering naturally at 37 weeks. The girls are super-healthy, and are happily breastfeeding. We can’t thank you enough for helping us on this special project!K.C., Chapel Hill, NC
Greetings from a former patient: You may recall that I came to see you for multiple (5) miscarriages and you successfully helped me get pregnant with twins, then carry them to term. My family moved out of state shortly after the twins were born.
We were SHOCKED about a year later to find ourselves pregnant with our fourth child—even more surprised that the pregnancy worked. You broke the miscarriage pattern, indeed! I still can’t believe I went from unexplained infertility to mom of four.
I hope you’re doing well, and I continue to have very fond memories of you and your work helping to create our wonderful family.

I wanted to let you know that I got good news at my ultrasound Thursday - my uterine lining was 8.7mm (on cycle day 14), which is within the normal limits (they said anything over 8 is ok). I ovulated 2 days later, so it probably got even a little thicker by then. I’ll continue doing what I can to improve it further, but it’s still a big relief! I’m planning to try letrazole and an IUI next cycle, unless I “get lucky” this month of course!.B.T., Apex, NC
We hope all is well with you and your family. Thank you for everything you’ve done for us to help us have our precious miracle baby. Have a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
Sincerely,J. & C. C. and baby, Durham, NC
I wanted to let you know that we went for the level 2 ultrasound last Wed, when I was 18 weeks and one day by my LMP. The doctor said everything looks great and baby is measuring right on target! The ultrasound was amazing to watch; I can’t believe everything they can see on there, especially the four chambers of the heart. So I am feeling relieved that all looks good, and we decided to forgo an amnio based on that information. And we chose not to find out the baby’s sex, tempting as it was to ask! We’ll have to wait till Sept. 30 (or thereabouts; my due date) to find out that information.
Hope things are going well with you.E. C., Chapel Hill, NC
Everyone is doing well in our house, especially the twins. They continue to grow quickly and in great health. They’re moving around now as expected, experimenting with fruits and veggies, and exploring everything. They’re both still nursing several times per day. They love love love their big sister and she does very well with them having really embraced the idea of being their ‘teacher.’
We’re in an exceedingly walkable neighborhood and rarely use the car.
I’ve attached one of the latest pictures of the little ones for you to see. As far as I’m concerned, I’ll always believe they’re little ones that you helped create.
Thank you.D.B., Washington, DC
I thought you might like to see the “end result” of our efforts over the past 2 years. Mission accomplished! Our daughter is a true joy and is doing really well. Thank you so very much for all of your good care & help in all phases of planning for, carrying & delivering the baby. I truly think the reason I had such a good experience all along the way was in large part due to your care. Once I emerge from the all consuming parenthood of the first few months I’m sure I’ll be back in touch. I’d love to touch base about how best to manage/time overall health maintenance. All best wishes and a warm hug!R.G., Chapel Hill, NC
I hope your week is going well. I just wanted to touch base with you with some rather surprising development. When I saw you last week, I told you I was premenstrual. Well, those symptoms went away and this morning was my 18th day since ovulation with my temperature remaining very high. So I took a pregnancy test and it was positive! You can imagine my surprise after 3 ½ years of trying and 3 failed IVF cycles! My husband says you must have quite the magic touch!!! We’re obviously excited and rather stunned but we’re trying not to get carried away until we see what happens. I was just wondering whether you suggest I continue taking the herbs you gave me or should I stop? Thanks!L.B., Cary, NC
Merry Christmas! Here is a new photo of our son. He is a constant joy. Thank you again for your assistance in bringing him here.R.K. and R.R., Chapel Hill, NC
Just wanted to give you an update: My wife planned on coming back and seeing you, but we ended up having our baby early. We can’t thank you enough for the help you gave us in getting and staying pregnant. I’ve included a picture of the little guy. He’s doing fantastic.
Thank you so much!J. T., Durham, NC
