Integrated Approaches to Infertility IVF & Recur Miscarriage
Availability: This product is not available.
A comprehensive integrative handbook on infertility, fertility treatment and Assisted Reproduction Techniques (ART) for health professionals and Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) practitioners, and for those seriously considering ART themselves.
Integrated approaches to infertility offer a greater awareness and understanding of the combination of factors that can influence the chances of success when undergoing different types of ART. The book includes contributions from leading experts and covers everything from identifying and treating conditions that may reduce fertility, including endometriosis and immunological abnormalities, to how nutrition, acupuncture, reflexology and yoga can support couples going through assisted reproduction. There is also a chapter that looks specifically at support for the over 40s.
Praise for Integrated Approaches to Infertility IVF & Recur Miscarriage
'This book is important for patients and all health care professionals working with infertile couples and those undergoing ART. The book reviews the evidence supporting integrated approaches to patient care and the management of infertility, and it outlines how a person-centered approach can help those trying to conceive to nurture their mind, body and spirit as they strive to bring forth new life.'
- Penny Abatzi, Clinical director, Serum IVF, Athens, Greece
'This practitioner handbook constitutes essential reading for couples experiencing sub-fertility. Whilst offering detailed information on the journey through fertility treatment, the authors build a compelling case for adverse impacts to fertility and pregnancy mediated by poor diet and lifestyle choices, genetics and environment... The book should be recommended reading for all healthcare professionals.'
- Meleni Aldridge BSc Nut Med, Dip cPNI, Executive Coordinator, Alliance for Natural Health International
'This book represents a priceless resource to health practitioners of all disciplines, from medicine to nutrition, as well as complementary therapists who wish to deepen their knowledge of reproductive health whilst having easy access to well-documented practice-based evidence on the subject.'
