Full body wellness is essential to optimal fertility.
Fertility is more than our reproductive organs working in isolation. It’s an entire support system within our bodies that allows for the efficient functioning of every facet of our physical and emotional beings. If any part of our bodies, minds, or spirits stops performing at its peak, it has the potential to cause a sequence of reactions that can negatively impact our general health, including our ability to reproduce.
Integrative fertility empowers us with the strategies and solutions that help us enhance our fertility by optimizing our whole-body wellness.
At Pacific Reproductive Center, we take a holistic approach to fertility. In addition to providing screenings for potential abnormalities, we embrace the inclusion of wellness programs that foster improved physical, spiritual, and emotional health. We are proud to access the latest technological innovations in treatment, laboratory analysis, and reproductive support.
However, we also provide comprehensive integrative fertility assessments that include the mind and spirit. We don’t just look at the reproductive organs – we look at the person.
What Integrative Fertility Means to Us
By incorporating the fundamental principles of integrative medicine into our fertility methodology, we give our patients a more substantial view into the systems that allow our bodies to function and thrive.
While traditional fertility treatments offer corrective strategies for immediately identifiable disorders – fibroids, endometriosis, fallopian tube blockage – integrative fertility strives to boost overall wellbeing. This strategy supports standard medical intervention by enhancing the body’s responsiveness to treatment.
Reproductive medicine is evolving to consider how diet, lifestyle, stress, and imbalances in the body can impact fertility. PRC offers consultations for integrative fertility care to provide you with tools, education, and support for integrative approaches related to your fertility journey.
Dr. Shala Salem is a fertility specialist, fellowship trained in Integrative Medicine, who supports patients interested in taking an integrative approach to their fertility treatment.
Pacific Reproductive Center Creates Ideal Environments for Conception
The success of integrative fertility lies in the harmonious implementation of traditional and whole-person therapies. An integrative approach to treatment may be used in combination with conventional treatments like intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF). Combining both approaches helps improve health, well-being, and chances of success.
Here are some of the additional treatments or lifestyle improvements that will be considered:
- Meditation & Yoga
- Mental health counseling
- Removing environmental toxins
Research supports the ability of integrative approaches to improve the likelihood of success during fertility treatments, as they help optimize the body.
At PRC, our fertility specialists strive to create and maintain a welcoming, compassionate environment that facilitates calm and contentment. We realize that your emotional health and equilibrium contribute immeasurably to the success of your treatment.
We recognize the importance of the mind-body connection. We want your experience at our center to be unfailingly positive. Together, we will establish the best possible treatment protocols for your unique circumstances.
