If you are reading this blog, then you are looking to conceive and likely have been TTC for months and years too.
I remember at one of the Integrative Fertility Symposiums I chaired there was a panel discussion on integrative fertility care and the benefits of preconception care. The panel was composed of reproductive endocrinologists (IVF docs), reproductive urologists, acupuncturists, and naturopathic physicians.
Dr. Magarelli, who I have interviewed below, said the following that really stood out
“We (as in IVF clinics) get women pregnant faster
You (acupuncturists and naturopathic doctors) get women pregnant better.”
The key message was how important and beneficial the pre-conception time (minimum 3 months before natural conception or IVF) is to help set the health blueprint (epigenetics) of your future child and this is done by helping the eggs and sperm reach their peak fertility potential.
Basically, an integrative approach can help women get pregnant better faster.
I sat down over zoom with Dr. Paul Magarelli after we recorded his 2021 Integrative Fertility Symposium lecture to see if he had any advice to share with women and men wanting to create healthy families.
