Praise for Increasing IVF Success with Acupuncture- an Integrated Approach
“IVF is a bewildering, complex process. It places extreme intellectual and emotional demands on its patients. This clearly written and comprehensive book demystifies the process without losing necessary detail.”
-George Cooper, IVF Acupuncturist and author of Be Your Own Nutritionist
“After treatment from Nick Dalton-Brewer with herbs and acupuncture, I had a juoyous success on my second cycle of IVF. This book condenses Nick’s many years’ experience of TCM into a very readable format that will inform clinicians as well as those seeking help having a baby.”
