Important Notes:
1. Huge Audience: Infertility affects one out of six couples today. Recent books and national media have highlighted older women's problems with conceiving.
2. Personal Angle: Randine Lewis used TCM to treat her own infertility, successfully conceiving and giving birth to two children. She spent a year in China working alongside Chinese doctors to treat hundreds of women with infertitility. Her clinic has a 70% success rate.
3. First Book on the Subject: Despite the number of books on infertility, there are none that utilize TCM as a alternative or supplement to assisted reproductive technology.
4. TCM Increases Success Rate of Western Treatments: A German study released last year showed that women who underwent TCM prior to IVF had a 50% greater chance of completing their pregnancy. Lewis' program can be followed on its own or in tandem with more invasive western fertility procedures.
5. Knowledgable Author: After attending medical school, Dr. Randine Lewis earned her graduate and postgraduate degrees in acupuncture and Oriental medicine, focusing on fertility. In 1999, she established the Eastern Harmony Clinic for reproductive enhancement. Dr. Lewis is a professional member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and is on its Women's Counsel. She is currently the Resolve alternative medical liaison and support group chairperson. She has appeared on ABC's Eyewitness News, HealthBeat; CBS' Up Close; PBS' Weekday and Weeknight, all featuring her successes treating infertility with traditional Chinese medicine. She is a medical expert on About.com's infertility site, and on HowToMakeAFamily.com.
