4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 cup of salsa
Smoked paprika (optional)
Ground smoked chipoltle seasoning (optional)
Dried minced onion (optional)
Taco shells (either hard or soft tortillas)
Place the chicken breast in the crock pot, cover with the salsa and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6+ hours. Once done, use two forks to shred the chicken and if the chicken is a little watery from the salsa, add some shredded cheese for consistency.
It sounds a bit out there. Sticking needles in women to help them become pregnant suggests that acupuncture might improve the odds of conceiving if done right before or after embryos are placed in the womb.
The surprising finding is far from proven, and there are only theories for how and why acupuncture might work. However, some fertility specialists say they are hopeful that this relatively inexpensive and simple treatment might ultimately prove to be a useful add-on to traditional methods.
Acupuncture involves placing very thin needles at specific points on the body to try to control pain and reduce stress. In fertility treatment, it is thought to increase blood flow to the uterus, help relax the cervix and inhibit stress hormones that can make it tougher for an embryo to implant.
IVF alone costs around $12,000 per attempt, so an acupuncture treatment that improves its effectiveness and overall ability to boosts fertility might save couples money in the long run.
Acupuncture is a personal choice and one that should be investigated fully before choosing to do so. It is not proven to work for everyone, but taking the step to try just might be the right answer for you. Take the time to research the subject and even contact an acupuncture specialist for a consultation.
