Egg Quality Optimization For Women With Diminished Ovarian Reserve and Low AMH

“I wish I’d known about The Axelrad Clinic sooner. My very next IVF cycle after working with them, I had 2 normal embryos after 3 cycles with none.”

“I am a forty-year-old woman, who is a newlywed of six months. One of my shared goals with my husband was to try to have a baby of our own. Honestly, at my age, I truly did not believe it was possible, but I was more than willing to try every natural resource before giving up. My husband and I decided to go to a fertility doctor and get a full workup on both of us. This way we would know if it was still possible for either one of us to conceive. This takes a good 6-8 weeks to get all the tests done. At the same time, I decided to get the name of an acupuncturist. A doctor friend of mine who was undergoing breast cancer treatments and seeing Chris to combat the effects of the chemo recommended him. I had never had acupuncture before. After my first meeting with Chris, he recommended a diet change. I wanted to lose about 15 pounds before I got pregnant. I was suffering from poor circulation, bad nutrition, and low energy. I followed Chris' instructions to the letter. I lost six pounds the first week and detoxed the heck out of my body. I started feeling so much better. In fact, I said to my husband one day, "I had no idea I could ever feel this good again. If I had, I would have made the necessary changes years ago." After only four sessions with Chris, I was pregnant. That entire month, I followed a healthy diet, exercised, took the vitamins he recommended, took the herbs he recommended and relaxed. Before I got pregnant, I lost a total of 13 pounds. The irony here is that the fertility doctor I went to said I could not get pregnant without insemination. I'm now 5 weeks pregnant and feeling really good. I continue to see Chris and will continue throughout my pregnancy. I cannot tell enough people that this is how I got pregnant. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind. I have enjoyed this experience so much that my stepson and husband are now in the process of seeing Chris. I now believe there is so much more to learn about health and the body. I look forward to the growth I am experiencing and the guidance I receive from Chris.”

“I am so grateful I came to visit Chris and give acupuncture a try. My husband and I had been trying to start a family for nine months and did not seem to have any luck. My menstrual cycles were exceptionally long and painful. I also was under a great deal of stress at my job. Chris was a great listener and very helpful to me in numerous ways. Acupuncture combined with herbal medicine helped me feel better physically and mentally. I felt more relaxed and was able to think more clearly. I also experienced less pains during my menstrual cycle. Most importantly, the acupuncture and medicine helped the length of my menstrual cycle decrease. These changes as a result of therapy, I believe enabled me to achieve my goal of starting a family. After four months of working with Chris, I became pregnant and am now expecting a little girl in less than 6 weeks!! I highly recommend trying acupuncture and/or herbal medicine with Chris if you are experiencing any stress, depression, having problems with your menstrual cycle, or having difficulty becoming pregnant. This experience has been a huge blessing in my life.”

“My husband and I had been trying to conceive for nearly 18 months. Because I was older than 35, my OB-GYN wanted us to begin testing for possible infertility after six months, but we spread it out a little bit longer. After completing blood tests, HSG and semen analysis, nothing indicated why we had not been successful. We decided to do IUI as this was the most "natural" form of insemination. The first round was not successful, so we scheduled a second round for the next cycle. In the meantime, I decided to try acupuncture due to reading other testimonials about the successful outcomes at The Axelrad Clinic. I am not exactly sure how long I met with Chris, but I don't think it was more than an entire cycle before I got pregnant. We did that second IUI, but I honestly believe it was done too soon because I didn't actually ovulate until four days later (I misread my signs). I believe that the theory behind acupuncture, treating the whole body, is what was required to get my system in sync. I have recommended acupuncture to friends who have had trouble conceiving and they have also experienced success.”

“I came to Chris for acupuncture treatments in November 2006, in preparation for my first IVF cycle in January 2007. Immediately, I was impressed by his approachable manner, knowledge of infertility, and his willingness to incorporate my needs and concerns into the overall treatment approach. Since the main reason why we were doing IVF was because of my husband's severe male factor infertility, the main focus of my treatments with Chris was to promote my general level of fertility, while bringing other systems into balance. We also worked with relaxation techniques and focused breathing, which allowed me to better deal with stressful situations. Unlike other acupuncturists I had met in the past, Chris focused on a few key areas to promote my fertility and increase our chances for IVF success, rather than "throwing everything but the kitchen sink at the problem," as he put it. I followed his easy and helpful dietary changes and came in for treatments once a week until the IVF cycle began, then two times during the ovarian stimulation phase and before the embryo transfer. Two weeks after the embryo transfer, we found out the first IVF cycle was a success! I am now pregnant with our first child, who is due October 16, 2007. There is no doubt in my mind that our successful IVF cycle is due in part to the acupuncture treatments and stress relief techniques from the Axelrad Clinic of Chinese Medicine. I highly recommend him as a very knowledgeable acupuncturist who specializes in the realm of infertility, and who takes a personal interest in your determination to overcome infertility.”

"My best friend got pregnant through the assistance of acupuncture after a struggling with infertility issues for 5 years. Now, she is a mother of two beautiful children.

“When my husband and I finally decided that it was time to start a family after seven years of marriage, we were very hopeful that we'd get pregnant immediately. After six months of trying to conceive naturally with no luck and constant attention to my cycle, I visited my OBGYN, who told me to wait one full year to pursue fertility treatments. I was not in the mindset to wait, so I pursued visiting a fertility specialist. After running lab work, an ultrasound and an HSG, she diagnosed me with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and suggested that I try to lose some weight. She also had my husband's sperm tested, which also posed challenges for our conceiving naturally.

“Rather than start medical fertility treatments right away, I decided that maybe my friend had found the answer through acupuncture. I contacted The Axelrad Clinic and began working with Chris to help treat our fertility issues and the anxiety that I was feeling about the process. From the beginning, he was very thorough and detailed. He taught me ways to deal with my anxiety and to think about my fertility in a new light.

“After seeing Chris consistently for four months, I decided that it was time to pursue assisted reproductive therapy. We chose to do an IUI and hormone injections along with a round of acupuncture. I had done my homework and discovered that the success rate for IUI was only 20%, so I was not expecting a positive pregnancy result. Yet, two weeks later, I actually did receive a positive result! I am confident that the lifestyle changes I had made (losing weight and eating healthier) along with the acupuncture and the IUI procedure resulted in conception. I just returned from my 8-week OBGYN appointment where I saw the baby's heart pumping.

“I am so very thankful to Chris Axelrad for his patience in working with me through some heartbreakingly difficult months, listening to me and for guiding me through the fertility process. If you are experiencing fertility issues, I highly encourage you to meet with Chris and let him give you a new perspective!”

 

“Chris, I have some good news for you! We went in for our beta today and we are pregnant! Today I am 11 days post transfer and my beta came in at 745. I am so excited and grateful for good news after what has felt like a very long and rough road. Just wanted to let you know since you have been so supportive and helpful along the way. Hope you had a great trip! See you next week. Thanks, Julie”

Thank you so much for everything you did for us to help us gain this precious gift! The comparison picture shows me on the left at the same age as Lucia on the right. We will be in touch soon! Sarah”

“Chris, it’s been a while since I was a patient - my triplets will be 7 in January. I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say I look forward to Wednesdays to watch your short videos and hear your messages each week. I live in Austin now so can't pop by the clinic, but I wanted to take the time to say "thank you" for inspiring me each week to be a better person, wife and mother. Many thanks, Louisa”

“We are doing well... Ella Jane arrived on the 19th Oct (7lbs 9oz and 20.5") and the past month has been a blur!!! We are still getting used to her schedule (or lack thereof) and prioritizing sleep over anything other than her needs 🙂 All is going well, and we are all in good health. Thank you and please pass on my thanks to Chris, Jaime and Caity for their excellent help through my pregnancy! - Margaret”

“The Axelrad Clinic is amazing! From the moment you call, you are treated like family. They make setting appointments or rescheduling them a breeze. Chris was able to treat my anxiety, define an adrenal problem, and help with my overall health. I am a school teacher, and I used to get sick several times a year. Now I am healthy year-round! They recommend great brands of vitamins and even sell them online for refills! I first went to Chris for general health but am excited to begin working on fertility with him now as well! I recommend the clinic to all my family and friends and can't think of a better place to go to become healthy and whole!” - Jennifer

“I never thought I would face infertility. We were shocked and upset when IVF didn't work the first time. My doctor wanted to make sure I knew about all of my options and referred me to Chris for acupuncture. Chris really focused on my overall wellbeing. He addressed my stress (what stress?!), how well I was (not) sleeping and my (lack of) energy. Chris is highly knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. After all the needle pokes of IVF I wasn't too thrilled about more needles with acupuncture. That being said, you hardly feel them! It's now super relaxing and I usually doze off. I'm happy to say that we're now expecting our miracle baby! I'm so grateful for my entire medical team, including Chris and The Axelrad Clinic. I would definitely recommend The Axelrad Clinic to anyone struggling with infertility. The entire staff will make you feel right at home.” - Kate
_______________________________________________________

“When I went to see Chris, I had been struggling with infertility for two years. In that period, I had experienced an early miscarriage and two chemical pregnancies. A friend, who had also experienced infertility and is now mother to a beautiful baby girl, highly recommended Chris. During my first appointment, Chris immediately put me at ease. He listened to my long history of infertility and took careful notes. He was reassuring and gave me such confidence. I left the appointment with a treatment plan that included recommended supplements, tips on nutrition and general recommendations to help me with my goal of getting pregnant. I was also hugely impressed with how they run the clinic. Everything is efficient and organized. At my second appointment with Chris, I told him that I was experiencing symptoms that I hadn't experienced since my first pregnancy and that I thought I might be pregnant. My fertility doctor confirmed my pregnancy the following day. I continued to see Chris weekly until I reached 12 weeks. I am now seeing them monthly until I reach 36 weeks, and then will see them weekly until I (hopefully!) deliver a healthy baby. As someone who has experienced pregnancy loss, those first 12 weeks were especially terrifying. I was so grateful for my weekly appointments with Chris. In those appointments, he patiently listened to my concerns and followed up on concerns I had expressed the previous week. I always left my appointments feeling relaxed and reassured. On one occasion, I came into my appointment extremely concerned with some cramping. I told Jaime (another clinician at The Axelrad Clinic) that I had a doctor's appointment in two days where we would have an ultrasound. I was so touched when I received an email in my inbox three days later, asking how my doctor's appointment went and checking to see if all was well. I am so very thankful to have Chris and his team as part of this journey and cannot recommend The Axelrad Clinic highly enough. This is a truly amazing team! - Tessa”

“Chris, I wanted to let y’all know that we saw two heartbeats today. They are 6 weeks and one day a long, so it is very early, but it was an incredible thing to see today after trying for 4 years. Thanks for your magical touch and I pray this will continue. - Scott”
_______________________________________________________

“Hi Chris! It's been a while, hope all is well!! I wanted to share some exciting news with you since you have been a major part of this journey. We are pregnant!! What a blessing!! Back in April the doctor recommended, after 3 failed medicated cycles, that we pursue IVF. In May I went to visit you and you gave me herbs to prepare me for IVF. I told you and my doctor that I would take the summer off and pursue IVF in the Fall. Well, to our big surprise, we conceived naturally, and I am 9 wks. pregnant today! We found out a couple of weeks ago and the doctor has been monitoring my pregnancy each week. Everything looks good, we have a strong heartbeat, baby is growing and developing, and we are praying for the best! I know it’s still early, but I wanted to give you the news and thank you for all your help in getting me where we are today! 🙂 I need to come and visit you and the staff soon!! All the best, Martha”

“I thought I'd attach a pic of my son Benjamin, who was born 11/17/08. He was a healthy 9 lb. 7 oz and 21.5 inches long and is now almost 11 lbs and 24.5 inches. I am very glad I opted to work with you to ensure the best outcome with my IVF!”

“Hi Chris from the Women's Pavilion at Texas Children's. Went into labor on my own 1 day late. Ignored the contractions all day at work as I've had them for over a month that always dropped off to nothing. Once I got home, they didn't stop, and I could not sleep. Holy cow! This really was it! Our beautiful son graced us with his presence at nearly midnight on 8/26. He is alert and sweet and full of personality. we can't believe he is here. He is a great, calm baby, easy to console. He is also a big boy- 8lbs 6oz, 22.25" long. Thank you for all of your help in our journey. You were such an instrumental piece in keeping my sanity through IVF and beyond.”

I won’t see you this week because I’ll be out of town, but I will see you the following week!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!! Regards, Tori”

 

“Just wanted to send you a quick email, HCG is at 9300, progesterone at 30 (so they may increase the progesterone I'm taking just to be on the safe side), and estrogen looks great. We finally got to see something on ultrasound yesterday, not much but it's something! I measured 5w1d which is spot on, follow up on Friday. I feel good other than breast tenderness which comes and goes in severity. Also, I'm not sleeping well the second half of the night, other than that things are moving right along!”

How It Works

Acupuncture Is Proven To Help Adjust And Fine-Tune Your Neuro-Endocrine Axis

Optimal egg quality depends on a delicate balance between your Central Nervous System (CNS) and endocrine system. Acupuncture has been shown in studies to have positive regulating effects on the feedback loops between CNS and endocrine systems.

Acupuncture Also Opens And Regulates Microcirculation

Targeted acupuncture and supplementation increase micro-circulation into the ovaries. By bringing more fresh blood and oxygen into the ovarian/follicular environment, the egg receives more nutrition and estrogen, is able to detoxify itself more effectively, and as a result the follicle and egg do what they already know how to do – prepare for a healthy pregnancy and baby.

Targeted Nutritional Supplements Feed Vital Nutrients To The Follicle and Egg

We will ensure that we carefully choose the right supplements that YOU need for YOUR specific situation to elicit YOUR best egg quality and help you achieve your dream of having YOUR healthy baby.

Simple Dietary And Lifestyle Changes Amplify Your Results

Having helped thousands overcome fertility issues of all types, we have developed simplified protocols that are not only easy to implement but completely sustainable over the long term. No hardcore elimination diets or 40-pills-a-day supplement routines. And, again, they’re PROVEN to work.

Our Powerful Combination Of Natural Therapies For Diminished Ovarian Reserve / Low AMH Includes…

Gentle Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the most powerful ways to naturally stimulate your body’s innate healing process. Then, it gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues. Acupuncture harnesses the vast healing intelligence your body contains to help it heal faster and with more lasting effects.

Functional Nutritional Therapy

When your cells, glands, and tissues are fully nourished with the specific nutrients they need, these tissues naturally function at a very high level and this includes your ovaries, follicles, and eggs. This means you absolutely have the best chance of conceiving a healthy baby with your own eggs.

Relaxation and Stress-Reduction

We all know the fertility journey can be incredibly stressful. When your nervous system is calm, the hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means a more focused mind, more resilient immune system, less inflammation, better circulation, and optimal nutrient absorption which… AGAIN… all lead to amazing egg quality.

You'll receive a CLEAR, easy-to-follow nutritional plan. When your cells, glands, and tissues are fully nourished with the specific nutrients they need they naturally function at a very high level. This means you feel your best because your body’s key systems are optimized.

Relaxation and Stress-Reduction

When your nervous system is calm, your hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means more hormonal balance, less inflammation, better circulation and nutrient absorption.

Your initial consultation is free. Come meet us in person and learn more.
