In the 1990s valuable medical research began to appear on using acupuncture and Chinese herbs, along with patients doing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). What was known for thousands of years with patients not having Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) is that Chinese medicine increases a couple’s chance of getting pregnant. With a German study being published in 2002 they found that it increased the patients success up to 60 percent. After this study many countries, including America, have conducted their own studies. Over and over again the results are the same. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs increase the percentage rate of a woman’s chance in getting pregnant.
Most women under
age 50 have regular periods, but they may not clearly understand
their menstrual cycles and the effect on their fertility. The
timing of a woman’s period directly influences when she is mostly
likely to become pregnant, and being aware of her cycle can help a
woman predict her fertility.

Avid Southwest gardeners see August as a time to enjoy the beauty of summer annuals, the bounty of a summer garden harvest, and the shade of the early morning or late afternoon. Southwest gardeners also mark August as the traditional beginning of the fall vegetable garden. Some fall vegetables should be planted by seed as early as mid-August: squashes like acorn, butternut and Hubbard; zucchini; melons like “Crenshaw,” honeydew, and casaba; fall sweet corn; tomatoes; peppers; and green beans. And September marks the beginning of the fall vegetable planting season — the most abundant season in desert gardening. So, preparing the garden’s soil is on every vegetable grower’s August checklist.
