What Makes the Overcoming Infertility Program so Successful?
Acupuncture for Infertility
You’ll notice the acupuncture here is different from most fertility acupuncture clinics. You won’t get the same protocol every week. That’s because I’m tracking you in a tiered process. We have to solve the big picture, and we have to take advantage of the special opportunities your cycle phase presents at time of each treatment, as discussed below.
Every phase of your menstrual cycle – follicle recruitment and development, ovulation, early luteal, premenstrual, menstrual – has a unique opportunity built into it to escalate your overall fertility. Every phase prepares the success of the next phase, and of the next cycle. Success accumulates. So my approach is to always strengthen the cycle phase you are in at treatment time.
Your Big Picture
Simultaneously I always use your acupuncture to address the overarching patterns and higher-ranking-than-fertility priorities your body needs to resolve BEFORE your body let's you fall pregnant and carry full term.
That's right. As much as you want a baby, the body has its own priority ranking system. You can't cheat because it's not possible to cheat. So we solve those issues WHILE we supercharge fertility itself. Most approaches focus only on fertility itself, ignoring the many issues in the rest of your body and emotional state that can be major contributors to infertility.
Thus, you'll find the acupuncture point strategy is very specific and strategic, rather than the same points over and over week to week. And that's why most women in the practice get and stay pregnant, delivering healthy children. They're ready, and their bodies are ready.
Resolve Hidden Emotional Blocks to Conceiving or Carrying
If you knew something was holding you back, you’d have handled it already.
Unbeknownst to them, many women have hidden “baby blocks” – fears they don’t realize they have. These can range from fear of giving birth, to fear they can’t keep the baby safe or that their relationship (or body!) will change, to financial worries. And many more.
You may also feel stuck or overwhelmed emotionally regarding fertility.
Your RTT (Rapid Transformational Therapy) session is designed to free you from these hidden obstacles.
This special form of hypnotherapy harmonizes the conscious and subconscious mind. So this session is a game-changer.
Because the subconscious mind powerfully impacts and instructs the body (think Mind-Body connection), getting your heart’s wish for a child and your deeper hidden operating system in synch can create immediate turnaround and massive change in your situation.
I then make you a bespoke self-hypnosis audio that you listen to daily for the next 21 days. That’s because science shows it takes 21 days to shift a subconscious belief or mental/emotional habit. The audio empowers you. It hardwires your session breakthroughs and commands your mind and body to supercharge your fertility.
Optimal nutrition is key, so you will have at least one session with my functional and integrative fertility nutrition counselor. I conference with her in advance, so she already has my diagnosis and plan for you.
She drills down into exactly what to eat and not eat to resolve the medical and energetic issues in your body we identified in your evaluation. She makes the plan super practical for you based on your real lifestyle (your job is to tell her what that is).
Whether you travel constantly, eat at the work cafeteria, or are a super foodie at-home chef, her guidelines are exciting and actionable. Recipes, menus, specific foods and spices, snacks, meals, tips, URLs and more. Pleasure in your food is a non-negotiable. So you'll feel excited and empowered, not deprived!
This program is meant to be an incredible support to you.
Having helped many hundreds of women create their families, what’s new and scary to you, is a road I’ve walked countless times. I’m here to guide and support you, talk through whatever you need to face or discuss, help you consider medical options, and of course, give you everything you need from the mind-body and natural health side to be successful.
The Overcoming Infertility Program automatically converts to a Well-Pregnancy Program when you conceive.
When you enroll in the program, you get 15 credits to apply toward appointments. It's a credit system because not everyone will need or do the exact same types of appointments.
Thus some women will do the whole program in 3 months. For others, it will be 5-6 months. It all depends on how many of what type of appointments you have.
Credit Usage by Session Type
- New Patient Visit – 3 credits
- Follow-ups – 1 credit each
- Nutrition Counseling – 1 credit
- RTT (Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy) – 4 credits
"When I was diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Syndrome my hopes for having a baby were shattered.
With an FSH of 134, I had almost no chance of conceiving naturally.
After many tears, I found Elizabeth who restored my faith and body.
With acupuncture, herbs, vitamins and a new diet plan, I floored my RE. who stood in amazement as we saw a little heart beating on the ultrasound screen.
