Complementary Fertility Treatments in Boca Raton & Aventura

Holistic Practices to Help Boost Fertility

When you come to Palm Beach Fertility Center seeking our help, we want to do everything possible to help you increase your fertility and conceive a child. This sometimes means offering you more than one type of treatment, as this may be what is required to achieve your goals. Recognizing a mind/body connection to overall wellness, Dr. Mark Denker provides the latest fertility treatments, from in-vitro fertilization to donor services, as well as recommendations for incorporating time-tested complementary medicine.

When you are trying to conceive, there are a few important factors to consider:

  • To get pregnant, the entire body must function at peak performance.
  • Signals from the pituitary gland in the brain set the reproductive process in motion, instructing the ovaries and testes to produce sex hormones.
  • The endocrine system, regulating sexual function and the delicate balance of hormones and glands, must successfully elicit the correct response. Stress, infection, and weight can negatively impact the endocrine system.

Benefits of Complementary Medicine in Palm Beach

Reproductive organs are, of course, vital to successful conception, providing the mechanisms for sperm and egg to meet and then sustain a pregnancy. Complementary medicine, which are ancient practices such as acupuncture, yoga, meditation, and massage therapy, systemically help balance the body. With the help of these treatments, you may find that your chances for conception are increased.

For many of our patients, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), in conjunction with Western medicine, can lead to breakthroughs in conceiving a baby. Dr. Mark Denker may discuss the possibility of pairing acupuncture with IVF and refer you to meet with Dr. Lisa K. Perdue, our on-staff Acupuncture Physician.

Many researchers agree that benefits of fertility acupuncture include:

  • Improved blood flow to the uterus
  • Reduced stress levels
  • Balanced hormones

Incorporating Complementary Medicine into Your Life & Fertility Regimen

For thousands of years, people have relied on complementary medicine to speed healing, improve quality of life, and to reduce stress. As a reproductive endocrinologist, Dr. Mark Denker appreciates both the power and limitations of modern medicine. He designs leading-edge fertility treatment plans with an additional level of complementary care.

In addition to fertility acupuncture, treatment options that fertility patients may explore include:

  • Biofeedback
  • Chiropractic medicine
  • Homeopathy
  • Hypnosis
  • Yoga

We also offer a word of caution regarding herbal supplements. The FDA does not regulate herbs and herbal supplements, and fertility-proven claims can be misleading. Certain ingredients in herbal supplements can actually hinder the reproductive process. Your fertility specialist should provide the latest fertility treatments as well as informed opinions on reproductive medicine research.
