If you are looking for a natural, restorative fertility program or to improve your success rate with IVF, we are here to help.
An estimated 9 million women suffer with infertility in the United States. Treatments can be very costly with no guarantees of conception. Many times, several attempts are made with no success, putting an enormous emotional and financial strain on the family and taxing the delicate hormonal balance of the woman, further decreasing her chances of conception. At Natural Medicine & Rehabilitation we recognize the highly sensitive emotional challenges that come with infertility and failed pregnancies, and the need for more natural answers to such an intricate and delicate issue.
Optimal health and fertility is the result of complex interactions of many bodily systems, internal and external factors, not merely our reproductive organs alone. It is crucial to understand the roles each of these factors play in our ability to conceive. For example, inability to properly manage stress can influence ovarian function by creating a ‘fight or flight’ response in the body. During periods of stress, reproduction is not a priority for our bodies. Poor nutrition and increased toxic load are proven to not only decrease egg quality and miscarriage rates due to chromosomal abnormalities, but also to lower sperm counts in men. Women who are trying to conceive later in life may experience decreased blood flow or misalignment of reproductive organs. Such changes are similar to those that affect our aging joints and muscles and can be reversed with visceral manipulation techniques such as Merciér Therapy.
We encourage women to choose the support that makes the most sense for them but to not accept labels of “unexplained infertility”. Infertility is not ‘unexplained’, but merely needs to be examined in more individualized detail and it is fair for you to ask questions, receive clarification, and learn about your options and their side effects before you start any treatment. Fertility challenges must be addressed with a multifaceted approach that identifies and treats the root cause of the imbalance. This should include a comprehensive medical history and physical examination, pelvic organ positioning, lifestyle and nutrition, toxicity exposure, stress assessment, laboratory and diagnostics review. This approach allows NMR to provide an individualized plan for each of the women we are supporting through this wonderful journey.
Our fertility program, which utilizes Merciér Therapy, will also support women who are undergoing medically assisted programs, such as IUI or IVF, to maximize their chances for conception. Merciér Therapy is non-invasive, drug-free and has an 83% pregnancy success rate within one year of finishing the Shared Journey Fertility Program which includes Merciér Therapy sessions and a year of on-going support and guidance. This therapy can drastically improve success rates of using IVF alone, which has a 29.4% pregnancy success rate. Merciér Therapy is successful, safe, done abdominally, requires no vaginal work and is cost effective.
Merciér Therapy treatments are part of the journey to conception at NMR. It involves a series of gyno-visceral manipulations to relieve congestion, tension, and stagnation in and around the stomach, intestines, uterus, bladder, ovaries, and pelvic floor to restore proper organ alignment. This supports the structures of the pelvic, abdomen, hips and lower back and ensures proper blood flow to maximize reproductive organ functionality. Re-training the pelvic organs to return to their normal status, position and function is the natural approach to increase the chance for conception while enhancing the health of those structures and the body in general.
There are only 150 Merciér Therapy practitioners world-wide who are and certified to offer the Shared Journey Fertility Program, Dr. Claudia being one of them right here in New Jersey.
