It rained earlier this week. It reminded me of the early days of potting training my dog.
Getting a puppy didn't seem that difficult.
Oh, I was so wrong.
As a first time dog owner, I had a LOT to learn.
Potty training was frustrating and took months.
Standing outside for what seemed like forever was irritating. Thankfully, San Diego has great weather year-round so I rarely had to be in bone-deep cold, slicing rain, or needle-sharp snow.
Wiping up puddles of pee and mounds of poop in the house was disgusting.
It was a long road of trial by fire. I didn't understand the importance of crating immediately so he wouldn't mark the house. I felt guilty for keeping him caged up so I let him roam around. It dragged the potty training process out by months.
The problem was I didn't know what I didn't know. That meant I didn't ask the right questions.
It wasn't until looking back that I realized my innumerable mistakes.
This is what I see women doing all the time when trying to get pregnant. They're piecing their own treatment plan together based on online research.
Even with my 20+ years of clinical knowledge, I always go to a fellow acupuncturist or chiropractor for treatment of any issue that lingers more than a few days. I always consult someone else when treating my kids. I don't have the objectivity to assess my or their symptoms.
If putting together your own fertility treatment plan is what you're doing without any help from natural health experts, I guarantee you that you're delaying your process and handicapping yourself with what you don't know.
Because it's what you DON'T know that often hinders you.
