Presenter: 

This lecture previously recorded at YoSan University offers students a new perspective about treating patients with infertility. Following nearly 20 years and several thousand successful fertility outcomes, Danica presents how she integrates various facets of healing into the context of infertility treatment.

Relevant topics presented include: acupuncture, spiritual counseling, and “how to access the quantum field”, leaving the student with an opportunity to view the treatment of infertility differently.

Part 1 - An Integrative Approach

An introductory conversation about the various aspects of care that make up an "integrative approach", including conventional medicine, alternative medicine, and the patient's role in her own healing. During this introduction the stage is set to introduce the concept of patient empowerment - whereby patients can help themselves feel better about the fertility journey when they are steered in the direction of thinking more consciously, instead of focusing only on what's not working.

 

Part 2 - The 5 Primary Emotions

In this section of the lecture, each of the 5 emotions (anger, sadness, worry, despondency and fear) are addressed. Acupuncture points as well as tools to recognize and diagnose each emotion are presented, along with tools that practitioners can offer to their patients for personal study.

 

Part 3 - The Field of Possibilities

This cumulative aspect of the lecture focuses on the quantum healing model and the difference between "high vibrational" thoughts/behaviors and the pitfalls of lower frequency thoughts/behaviors that most infertility patients fall into. This section offers specific examples and guidance for practitioners to assist their patients in elevating their hearts and mindsets.

Diagnoses of autoimmunity are on the rise in the general patient population. Driven by dietary, lifestyle, and environmental factors, autoimmunity can cause damage to tissues and organs throughout the body.

Increasing evidence is demonstrating that not only do couples with autoimmune conditions face unique challenges with fertility and pregnancy, but also that unnamed autoimmune reactions within the body can affect hormone balance, tissue integrity, cell quality, implantation, and maintenance of pregnancy.

  • Understand the most commonly diagnosed autoimmune conditions and their impact on fertility, including Lupus, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Diabetes, and others.  
  • Describe and identify the well-recognized autoimmune forms of infertility including antiphospholipid syndrome
  • Understand the current literature and draw relevant clinical conclusions for patients who demonstrate signs of autoimmune related infertility
  • Correct the underlying drivers of autoimmunity to assist with resolution of optimal fertility, including removal of environmental triggers, improvement of nutrition and microbiota
  • Confidently design treatment plans which address the most likely drivers of autoimmune infertility for the patient including nutrition, herbal medicine, functional nutritional supplementation, and medication options.

  • Intro to Autoimmunity- prevalence, pathophysiology, & stats

Presenter: 
Male fertility is declining rapidly, and now accounts for 40% of couple’s infertility. These men are notably absent from the treatment room. They are frequently told their sperm is ‘fine’ or ‘normal’, and confuse sperm quality with virility. As practitioners treating female infertility, we are effectively working with one hand behind our back.

There is increasing clinical evidence showing the efficacy of acupuncture and Chinese medicine in improving semen profiles. Treating male factor infertility will significantly improve a couple’s chance of a successful pregnancy.

Outline:

  • 830 - 900 Spermatogenesis (0.5 CEU)
  • 900 - 930 Risk factors & lifestyle choices (0.5 CEU)
  • 930 - 1000 Semen testing (0.5 CEU)
  • 1000 - 1015 Conventional medicine (0.25 CEU)
  • 1015- 1030 break
  • 1030 - 1045 Case history taking (0.25 CEU)
  • 1045 - 1245 Chinese medicine 4 patterns - acupuncture, herbs, cases (2.0 CEU)

 

Goals & Objectives:

  • Learn the process of spermatogenesis
  • Understand risk factors - what helps and what hinders healthy sperm production.
  • Extend your case taking specifically for male infertility
  • Analyze semen test results, and understand how to use them to assist your diagnosis and subsequent treatment
  • Learn the main causes and Chinese medicine patterns associated with male infertility
  • Formulate treatment strategies, point selections and herbal prescriptions

This will enable you to:

  • Use both your TCM diagnosis and semen test results to create clear diagnoses and robust treatment plans
  • Explain normal vs. optimal sperm parameters to your patient
  • Offer simple lifestyle strategies to improve male fertility
  • Successfully improve sperm quality and quantity, thereby male fertility
