Living in Japan as a foreigner and trying to take on the daunting task of having fertility therapy in Japan can be incredibly stressful. The treatment itself is taxing on the body and can be mentally trying even if it’s in your own language. Even more so if it’s in a foreign language. Saying this, keeping calm, healthy and relaxed is very important because the success of western fertility relies not only on the physical health of the mother and father but also the mental. Think of it this way, to make a new life you have to share part of your own body, qi and blood. Kind of like breaking off a piece of your energy and giving it to the new baby. You will have less energy to share if you are emotionally and physically drained. For this reason I recommend receiving your fertility therapy in your native tongue if you can. Any way to relieve the stress of the treatment is a good way.
On that note, I recommend that you get acupuncture, exercise and keep a healthy lifestyle alongside western therapies. Exercise, a healthy lifestyle and diet help to shape and keep up your body. Acupuncture helps by balancing your body and mind. In fact, the chances of becoming pregnant and seeing that pregnancy to term are increased drastically when western therapies are combined with acupuncture.
