One quick update first! Jana Morian (of Inspired Wellness Center) will have some new letters after her name soon, this weekend I traveled to New Mexico to sit for the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM) fellowship exam! It was tough and it covered every aspect of fertility and reproductive health you can imagine but after 200 questions and 5 hours I finished the exam and will soon be an official infertility specialist. I’ve been treating infertility in the Denver-Metro area for 2 years now and I have always been lucky… but preparing for this exam has forced me to learn the in’s and out’s of infertility from both a Western and Eastern perspective and now I am happy to say that I am among the best of the best in Colorado!
Here is a recent testimonial from one of our patients…
“My husband and I came to Jana after 18 months of trying to conceive and after 2 miscarriages. I was at my wits end. I was so emotionally drained from the different drugs and procedures. Each month riding what felt like a roller coaster of hope, excitement, disappointment and despair. It was really hard not to be completely obsessed with it all. Charting, temping, ovulation tests, , IUIs, follow up blood work…it was all so exhausting! Jana helped balance that. Although she was treating me for fertility, she was focused on helping balance me so that when I did get pregnant again, I could sustain it. When I felt anxious, she helped calm me, when I was feeling hopeless and low, she helped pick me up. My husband has never been a huge believer in eastern medicine, but after he saw how much Jana helped me, he quickly climbed aboard. When I would have a rough day, or a disappointing day in my cycle, his first words would be “can you go see Jana?”. I saw Jana for 7 months, and when I finally got that wonderful positive pregnancy test, I felt more assured that my body was in a good place to support a pregnancy. Although I was working with a reproductive endocrinologist, I believe Jana is the reason I am holding this pregnancy. All of my doctors were so focused on just getting me pregnant, but Jana was focused on helping me stay that way. Thank you Jana from the bottom of my heart for all you have done for me and our growing family!”
When I read this I was so deeply touched by their words and it reminds me that every late night, every freak-out moment and every step I took in preparing for that ABORM exam was worth it because it means I get to help more and more people who are struggling getting pregnant… and that is yet another reason why I love acupuncture and my job!
