Folic Acid vs Folate - The Great Debate

Folic Acid vs Folate - The Great Debate
When it comes to having a baby folic acid is probably at the top of the list of supplements that couples identify as being an essential dietary factor in fertility and pregnancy. Most people are surprised then to find out that folic acid is a chemical which is not naturally used in the body.  In fact supplementary folic acid is simply a way to artificially introduce a source of a natural chemical called folate into the system.

Acupuncture for Fertility - IVF Support
In April 2002 Fertility and Sterility, an international journal whose subject is the treatment and investigation of infertility and human reproductive disorders, published a study by W.E.

Is period pain normal?
For many women period pain, also known as dysmenorrhoea, is part of an unwelcome yet sadly familiar monthly cycle of pain and suffering associated with menstruation. Cramps, back pain and stomach pain due to periods, menstrual pain with sickness, dizziness and vomitting, and period pain associated with elevated levels of stress are all common symptoms seen in the clinic. But is period pain normal? Often perceived as such, period pain is accepted as a minefield which needs to be navigated and ...

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
___
  • From start to finish I had a great experience with the Natural Health and Wellness Clinic. I was being treated with acupuncture to support IVF cycles. Martyn supported me through two cycles and offered a lot of advice, guidance and support through both. He always took time to explain the treatment and any alterations to support the cycle. I always felt a priority when fitting in appointments to fit my IVF schedule. Having used acupuncture before this was a totally different and positive experience. I would't hesitate to use the clinic again myself if required which is the best recommendation I can give. I'm currently pregnant with twins and I thank Martyn for his part in that.*

  • After a year of unsuccessfully trying to conceive, my partner and I decided to give acupuncture a try before moving on to the serious IVF process.  Martyn was very clear and calm in his approach, he gave us acupuncture treatments and herbs along with some changes to our diet and exercise over several months in what he called a preparation period.  The period pain I had experienced every month for as long as I can remember completely disappeared with the treatments and it must have been linked to our problems to start a family as after 5 months we were blessed with success!  I highly recommend Martyn at NHW, I don’t think our little girl would be here without him.*

  • I’ve only had acupuncture once before, but I felt completely at ease with Martyn. He was very thorough with my medical history and in assessing what needed to be worked on. He was also very happy to answer all of my questions. After the session and in the days following I noticed immediate improvements to my back and shoulder pain which I have been suffering with for some years. Martyn was professional, provided a clean, relaxing environment and results that really worked. I will definitely be using his services again.*

  • We contacted the natural health and wellness clinic after we researched acupuncture for IVF. We wanted to give ourselves the best chances of success in our last NHS treatment cycle. After talking to Martyn we started around two months before our transfer was due. Ten weeks later and we are pregnant! I was much more relaxed this time and acupuncture the day before and on the Sunday morning after my procedure seems to have done the trick. We are keeping everything crossed and continuing acupuncture treatments. I wish we had tried acupuncture earlier.*
