There is presently a considerable amount of research and testimonials to demonstrate the beneficial effects of the techniques integrated in the Holistic Fertility® method.

Electroacupuncture, Reflexology and Healing visualization have been proven to reduce stress hormones such as cortisol.

High rates of cortisol impede the proper functioning of gonadotropins (GnRH) which control the regular flow of FSH and LH. When the levels of these hormones are high, success rates are low.

Medications used in restoring ovulation or in ovary stimulation do not always have the desired effect.

The techniques we propose provide a safe alternative if you have already tried medication or are loath to take it or if you can’t tolerate it.

What’s more, reducing stress during pregnancy has a beneficial effect on the baby’s health, preventing future learning problems, reducing the likelihood of it growing to be hyperactive or suffer from attention deficit.

And if, perchance, the application of Holistic Fertility ® does not attain the expected result, reflexology and healing visualization will significantly reduce the risk of depression, which is not uncommon in women who have not succeeded in getting pregnant.

Benefits of Electroacupuncture

Electroacupuncture has been shown that it can up to double the chances of getting pregnant! Studies have shown that electroacupuncture brings about changes in the hormonal management of the body, to the immune system, to stress hormones and ova quality. These changes increase the chances of successful implantation (in cases of IVF) and help to cause fewer abortions and more trouble free pregnancies. Electroacupuncture can also assist women with unexplained infertility syndrome to overcome the obstacles causing said infertility and to get pregnant .


Below are some of the effects of electroacupuncture and acupuncture according to research results:

• Electroacupuncture nearly doubles the success rate when applied as support to IVF. 

• Acupuncture and, by extension electroacupuncture, has been proven to bring hormonal balance in the body in a way whereby women with a 'poor' profile for IVF treatment, after having acupuncture were characterized as having a ‘good’ profile and thus with improved chances of getting pregnant.

• Improves ovarian morphology (both in look and quality).  In cases of PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome) it leads to improved quality of ova and thus increases the chances of fertilization, whether naturally or by IVF.

• Acupuncture and electroacupuncture has demonstrated that they can trigger ovulation in approximately 80% of women who don’t ovulate.

• Improves levels of Gonadoeklytinis (GnRH), luteinizing hormone (LH) and estradiol, thus achieving better management and overall functioning of the endocrine system.

• There is better hormonal control and improves the way by which testosterone converts to estradiol.

• Stimulates blood flow of the uterine artery which is considered important in increasing the chances of successful implantation of the embryo in the womb.

• Raises the response rate of the body's immune system and lowers the likelihood of miscarriage and failed implantation, ,a potentially important factor in infertility due to endometriosis.

• Should you get pregnant, acupuncture and electroacupuncture have been shown to reduce the risk of ectopic pregnancy that could result in abortion and possible damage to the fallopian tube. Also, acupuncture and electroacupuncture give statistically greater percentages that the baby will be born alive (?).

• Electroacupuncture has been proven to aid men with low sperm count and quality. It improves the sperm quality, morphology and mobility. Many studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of acupuncture and electroacupuncture in improving male fertility.

Benefits of Healing Visualisation

According to a recent research published in the Fertility and Sterility Journal, healing visualization increased the IVF conception rate from 20% to 52% in a sample of 143 women aged 40 and over.

• Healing visualization has proven that it noticeably increases the probability of getting pregnant naturally.

• On a mental or psychological level, healing visualization lends emotional support to women so as not to abandon the attempt. It is striking that it is stress, rather than cost, that is the most common reason for abandoning the effort by couples trying for a baby. But whether through IVF or naturally, it will usually require about three to four attempts at IVF and a total of eight sessions over a three-month period for the natural process which we advocate. Therefore, emotional support is a must.

Benefits of Reflexology

• Reflexology helps to feel drastically less susceptible and gloomy. You will find that you can cope with the situation better and your psychology will improve. Your sleep will improve and problems such as headaches and abdominal pains will be refewer.

• Reflexology brings hormonal balance in the body. One of the relevant hormones is DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), a hormone which diminishes steadily over time, especially around a woman’s thirties and seems to play an important role in the quality of ova. If you are at a more advanced age, the balance of this hormone can be vitally important.

• Once pregnant, reflexology reduces the chances of complications because balancing and relaxing the body allows it to adapt to the changes more readily for the pregnancy to proceed naturally and hitch free (always under the supervision of your attending physician).

Benefits of EFT Tapping

• EFT has no side effects. Success rates reported in resolving both emotional and physical issues are extremely high, with reports in there being improvement even up to 95% of cases.

• It is ideal for women with unexplained infertility or who are experiencing a lot of stress and anxiety in their attempt to have a baby. EFT is excellent, because it at the same time treats both infertility and the stressfulness of the whole process.

• On a biological level, EFT has been shown to directly affect the level of hormone production. When one lives constantly in a state of anxiety, adrenaline is secreted continuously. Adrenaline reduces one’s ability to utilize the progesterone in the body and as a result, it directly affects fertility. Another hormone secreted by stress is prolactin. Normally prolactin is secreted by the pituitary gland in order to prepare the body for breastfeeding. Prolactin is responsible for a breastfeeding mother to not get pregnant. Too much stress increases the body’s secretion of prolactin.

• It has been observed that in states of heightened tension, blood flow is mostly to the muscles. The uterus and fallopian tubes are therefore perfused less and so their functionality is diminished. EFT is an innovative technique that successfully addresses tension by clearing it directly and mildly.
