Dallas IVF offers holistic fertility care because the mind-body connection matters
Our Dallas fertility center offers holistic fertility care because every member of our team is committed to taking care of both your physical and emotional health. Our reproductive endocrinologists realize that you’re coming to Dallas IVF for world-class fertility treatment, and we believe that your care should also include a focus on the mind-body connection.
What is holistic fertility care?
At its core, holistic fertility care at our Dallas fertility center recognizes that your mind and body are interconnected and equally important. This type of care focuses on more than just fertility treatments like intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF). Here are some examples of how Dallas IVF incorporates holistic fertility care.
- Acupuncture can help patients who are struggling with infertility or undergoing fertility treatment. In addition to helping with relaxation and stress relief, acupuncture may help with conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and endometriosis. It can also provide relief from the side effects of fertility medications, including bloating and nausea.
- Yoga can help reduce stress and improve the connection between mind and body, which can be helpful when dealing with an infertility diagnosis and the resulting treatment. It is also an excellent form of gentle exercise.
- Certain fertility supplements, including DHEA and CoQ10, may be able to improve a woman’s fertility. A study on DHEA found that it can lead to higher birth rates in women undergoing IVF. As for CoQ10, research with mice showed that the supplement increased the number of ovulated eggs and litter size in older mice. However, always check with your fertility doctor before starting any supplements.
Holistic fertility care also focuses on the importance of taking care of yourself by eating a nutritious diet, managing stress, taking time for physical activity, avoiding cigarettes and alcohol, and maintaining a healthy body mass index (BMI). All of these lifestyle changes can help improve fertility in both women and men.
Holistic fertility care makes a huge difference
When facing a diagnosis of infertility, many patients tend to focus only on fertility treatments. After all, their goal is to conceive and bring home a healthy baby. However, taking care of yourself is just as important as any treatment you will receive from the doctors at our Dallas fertility center.
