IVF Cycle Optimization & Support
When you are vital, healthy, and full of life, your fertile potential naturally expresses itself in everything you do. When you are anxious, stressed, overworked, and full of negative energy, your fertility is stifled and chances for success are greatly diminished. This principle is no different for patients seeking technological assistance with conception. The success of IVF and IUI depend just as much on the state of your body as does success without these techniques. Healthy response to drugs, good egg quality, and a fertile and receptive uterine lining are essential for a high probability of pregnancy and healthy delivery of a baby. By incorporating Acupuncture, stress-reduction, lifestyle and dietary guidance, and targeted nutritional supplementation, your chances are increased and your investment is maximized.
Are you ready?
Is your body ready to support and nourish a new life? IVF and IUI are magnificent tools for overcoming difficulties with fertilization/conception, but they do very little to overcome subtle issues with circulation, inflammation, and other blockages that may be preventing you from conceiving and carrying to term. Take time to prepare your body to receive and nourish the tiny seed of life. If your body is ready, you will have much higher chances for a successful outcome. If your body is not ready, all the drugs and surgery in the world will have very little chance of helping you.
Our IVF/IUI Preparation Program and it’s Benefits:
We begin each of our programs with an initial phone consultation. During the consultation we will discuss your issue, medical history, any medications you are taking, and most importantly your goals. We want to be certain that our program is going to meet your needs and that there is a high probability of success for you, before we begin treatment. Your initial phone consultation is free.
This program will ultimately bring your body into balance and prepare your body to nurture a child. Ideally, it should begin up to 3 months prior to ovarian stimulation. Treatments are weekly, except the embryo transfer. It is recommended that acupuncture treatment be provided before and after transfer to improve the outcome of the IVF.
Our 7 step program involves diagnosis, acupuncture therapy, dietary and nutritional recommendations, stretches and exercise, customized vitamin and herbal medications, lifestyle adjustments, and mind-body coaching. Each of the steps is intended to identify and address imbalances, increase fertility, support reproductive health, improve sleep, eliminate inflammation, build blood, improve circulation reduce stress and help you connect with reserves of spiritual energy.
A vital, healthy body and balanced, calm mind ensure that ovarian response is maximized and unwanted side-effects are minimized. The principle of IVF/IUI preparation is simple — your body needs the resources and resilience to respond effectively and efficiently to the stimulation given by the fertility drugs. Make sure it is ready to go… AND that it has the endurance to finish.
Your body is better prepared to handle the process
IVF/IUI can be stressful, not just for your mind and emotions, but for your body as well. Using our customized 7 step Program (given BEFORE not DURING your injection cycle), we take time to make sure your body and mind are as resilient as possible BEFORE you start the ovarian stimulation protocols.
Your side-effects from medications are reduced
Because your body is more balanced and resilient BEFORE you start your IVF/IUI cycle, the side effects are minimized. We have seen countless IVF/IUI patients, and we can say unequivocally that the vast majority of them who had done previous cycles without our program reported a significant reduction in bloating, moodiness, tiredness, and other common side-effects of ovarian stimulation.
YOU HAVE one-on-one, individualized coaching & support
We teach you powerful mind-body techniques to help you connect with reserves of spiritual energy you never knew you had. It is our firm belief that regardless of medical intervention, there is always a spiritual component to the process of bringing new life into the world. Our mind-body training is designed to support and encourage this spiritual process.
In our experience, here are the changes we routinely see in patients who come to us for IVF Support:
Less stress during the cycle
Improved response to stimulation drugs
Better fertilization rates
Higher pregnancy rates
Lower miscarriage rates
Yes, it’s true!
When you support your body, it supports you in return.
We have seen it countless times here at our Clinic.
Just one example… a patient came to us, after working in conjunction with her doctor and spending 8 weeks in our program, the size and quality of her embryos were much improved. Both embryos (Image C) were implanted, and she became pregnant.
*Our experience with women 40 years old and younger, receiving acupuncture in addition to IVF typically has shown an average success rate of 65%. This rate may vary based upon the number imbalances found in each patient, the specific conditions that interfere with fertility, and the number of acupuncture treatments administered prior to embryo transfer.
