Dr. Lewis gives easy to follow steps to personal diagnosis and cure through traditional chinese medicine. she has been trained in both chinese and western medicine and she boasts a 75% success rate, much higher than we see in western fertility clinics. and having experienced infertility herself, she offers much comfort and hope to those of us who have been on the emotional roller coaster of trying and failing to get pregnant. The recommendations used in her traditional chinese treatments will also compliment western medicine for those who are not ready to give up on their fertility doctor.

this book is very informative. the authors are two Harvard practitioners and if you regularly go to the Harvard nutrition website, you'll find that the information there matches the findings of the study on which this book is based. this book was an easy read and provided important nutrition and lifestyle information for women trying to become pregnant. the information seemed well-proven and effective. i put into practice some of the ideas immediately and found them easy to follow.
