By Dr. Julie Gorman NMD

                   Revolution Health Medical Center and RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association will recognize National Infertility Awareness Week®, April19  through April 25,  joining millions of women and men fighting the disease of infertility, healthcare professionals, mental health professionals,  and other thought leaders to promote greater awareness about infertility.

If you have been having difficulty starting or expanding your family, you are not alone. Infertility affects at least one in eight U.S. couples. When you are experiencing infertility, communicating with family and friends can be difficult. It is important to find support and information to help you take charge of your fertility.

 

Whether you goal is to conceive naturally or you fertility plan includes Assisted Reproductive Therapies (ART) such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF) or intra-uterine insemination (IUI), our Optimizing Fertility Program offers a comprehensive holistic plan to help you conceive and maintain a healthy pregnancy.

Many of our patients are referred to us by reproductive medicine specialists.  Our Naturopathic Medical Doctors commonly work with these specialists to help enhance the success of their treatment, over and above what the conventional fertility protocols alone can accomplish.

The use of Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be used alone or in combination with other fertility treatments. Acupuncture provides a non-invasive and drug-free approach that is clinically proven to improve success rates for couples struggling with infertility. Medical studies have shown that acupuncture can:

  • Regulate the menstrual cycle and ovulation
  • Improve ovarian and hormone function for better quality follicles/eggs
  • Increase uterine blood flow and lining
  • Reduce anxiety and stress
  • Modulate side effects of fertility medications
  • improve the success rate of IVF, IUI and other technologies
  • reduce the incidence of miscarriage
  • improve male factor issues including sperm quality, quantity and motility
