Detail on The Overcoming Infertility Program
Research-based, effective alternative medicine fertility enhancement strategies are combined into a patient-specific treatment plan for each woman or couple.
Which strategies will be in your unique treatment plan? Careful examination plus your biomedical infertility diagnosis, your Chinese medicine diagnosis, your timeline, and successful outcomes of other infertility patients with similar cases in our clinic in the past will all contribute to how The Overcoming Infertility Program is adapted to serve you best.
In addition to in-office treatment and nutrition, the emphasis is on navigating the stress and emotional overwhelm of infertility. Many patients worry about age, feel tremendous pressure, and feel their fertility focus has taken over too much of their lives.
Therefore, The Overcoming Infertility Program offers counseling and mind-body tools to help you feel both proactive and calm as you engage your process.
Your in-office care also teaches self-care techniques and easy fertility lifestyle strategies to use at home and to integrate into your everyday life.
After you conceive, The Overcoming Infertility Program automatically converts into a Well-Pregnancy Program.
Your care plan shifts accordingly.
Special Note for Advanced Maternal Age Patients
Rather than viewing age as a liability, we harness the assets of maturity to maximize remaining reproductive potential.
The challenge for these patients is that issues causing infertility that may have been straightforward to resolve early on, are now compounded by both age and stress. Some of their core issues include decreased blood flow to the ovaries and reproductive organs, increased cortisol, decreased DHEA, brain-reproductive signaling issues, ovary-uterus phase discrepancy, decreased nutrition absorption, subtle or overt hyper-immune responses and reduced VEGF.
We have found that most of these issues are amenable to treatment. We welcome advanced maternal age patients. One of the great delights at Oriens is the number of advanced maternal age who get pregnant naturally because most of these patients have been told they need donor eggs.
As the College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (UK) reminds us, “A woman is fully capable of conceiving with her own eggs until she has been in menopause and without a period for one year.”
