Diagnosis and information

Understanding Your Diagnosis

The Fertile Soul has worked with and helped women and men across the spectrum of common infertility diagnoses. If you are not a candidate for our program, we will be candid with you about that. However, the following are a list of conditions that have been improved using The Fertile Soul MethodTM.




 

Overview of Key Diagnoses


Advanced Maternal Age

The Fertile Soul can support your efforts to conceive irrespective of your age as long as you are still capable of menstruating and ovulating. Our program has helped women into their late forties become pregnant and deliver healthy babies. Read more

AMH - Antimullerian Hormone

"Ovarian reserve" testing can be intimidating and daunting. The results often feel like a fertility death sentence. When viewed through the eyes of Chinese medicine, however, these laboratory markers of ovarian potential can actually make diagnostic sense, and help determine the best natural therapeutic course for you.

Anovulation or Amenorrhea

Eastern medicine views the lack of ovulation or menstruation as an obstruction to the creative, reproductive life force. Fertile Soul therapies can help you restore the proper functioning of your reproductive system. Read more

Autoimmune Infertility

If your body is fighting aspects of the reproductive process, your immune system can react against hormones, sperm, embryo implantation and placental blood flow. We help you practice remaining in receptive mode so your body will accept implantation and subsequently, a full-term pregnancy. Read more

Endometriosis

This devastating condition can cause severe pain and prevent implantation. The Fertile Soul treats the cause of your endometriosis, in many cases, alleviating the condition altogether. The source of your endometriosis must be curtailed and your body's reaction to it must settle down before your body will allow a pregnancy, naturally or with the assistance of reproductive technology. Read more

High FSH

When your pituitary gland emits high levels of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), it does so because your ovaries are not responding adequately to its hormonal message at lower levels. Your FSH levels can be lowered by improving your ovaries' response to your pituitary gland?s messages. The Fertile Soul has helped women with high FSH values, even as high as over 100, conceive naturally and carry healthy babies to term. Read more, Case study

Hormonal Imbalance

Hormones cannot respond efficiently in a body out of balance?the root cause of your imbalances must be addressed. When you balance your hormones so that they communicate properly with the reproductive organs, your body is able to respond with a healthy pregnancy. Read more

Luteal Phase Defect

A strong 14-day luteal phase, the second half of the menstrual cycle following ovulation, is necessary for successful implantation. Natural treatment can help lengthen, strengthen and improve your luteal phase reproductive function. Read more

Male Factors

Your sperm quality today?count, motility, and morphology?is a direct reflection of the health of the spermatozoa (male germ cells) during the preceding three months when they entered the most important growth phase of their ongoing development. Your complete health picture during this time (e.g., nutrition, emotions, hormones) affects the quality of your fertility in the current month. Following The Fertile Soul program can help you achieve dramatic improvements in your sperm quality. Read more

Pelvic Adhesions, Pelvic Immflamatory Disease, and Tubal Obstructions

Previously considered untreatable other than with surgery, mechanical barriers to conception have now been shown to be resolvable, including in clinical studies. Dramatically improving circulation to the pelvic organs using breathing, massage, acupuncture and Qi Gong and strong manual physical therapy techniques can break down adhesions and open blocked tubes. Read more

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

PCOS impacts the reproductive hormones, ovaries, pancreas and many other endocrine glands. Nutritional modifications and dietary supplements, herbal remedies, acupuncture and other therapies included in The Fertile Soul program help you control the symptoms of PCOS and support a healthy ovulation. Read more

Poor Egg Quality

Though poor egg quality is a common diagnosis, there is no scientific measure of egg quality. In practical terms, your egg quality is a direct reflection the health of the follicle during the preceding three months when it entered the most important growth phase of its ongoing development. Your complete health picture during this time (e.g., nutrition, emotions, hormones) affects the quality of your fertility in the current month. Several Fertile Soul clients with this diagnosis have gone on to have healthy babies using their own eggs. Read more

Premature Ovarian Failure (POF)

When the reproductive system goes into false menopause early, it is signaling a serious imbalance that requires gentle rectification. If you have been diagnosed as irreversibly infertile with POF, The Fertile Soul can help you restore your reproductive and overall health. Read more

Recurrent Miscarriage

Getting pregnant is only the first step. Your body, mind and spirit must be healthy enough to nurture your baby through delivery. If your body has rejected one or more pregnancies, we can help you understand why and prepare yourself for a healthy, full-term pregnancy the next time you conceive. Read more

Secondary Infertility

If you conceived before and are now having difficulty when trying again, it can be especially confusing and frustrating. But, there is a reason why your body is saying "no". The Fertile Soul program will help you uncover that reason and coax your reproductive system back into saying "yes" again.Read more

Stress and Infertility

You probably are aware of the connection between stress and infertility. Clinical studies have demonstrated that your body cannot be in fight mode and receptive to conception at the same time. When we are stressed, we are resisting what is. As such, our reproductive hormones are not produced in adequate amounts at the right times, and our reproductive tissues do not respond to them productively. Read more

Unexplained Infertility

Actually, we believe there is always an explanation for infertility, though it may be buried deep. We work with you to uncover the root cause of your imbalances, whether hormonal, stress-related or lifestyle, and address them so that you can heal. Read more

Uterine Fibroids

Also called myomas, fibroids can mechanically obstruct conception and inhibit implantation. Fertile Soul treatment has successfully resolved fibroids in women who previously could not conceive, following which they became pregnant and carried healthy babies to term. Read more



What Others Say

Mialinda S. Francis
Past President of RESOLVE Houston, Texas

"Dr. Randine Lewis has actively been involved with RESOLVE for years, speaking annually at our monthly educational meetings on alternative treatments and the annual Infertility and Adoption Symposium. Her practice has been the sole benefactor sponsor for the past two years for RESOLVE of Houston?s annual symposium and again this year Dr. Lewis will be our biggest benefactor sponsor.

Randine saw a need to get involved as a volunteer for RESOLVE of Houston when she saw that RESOLVE did not have any organized support groups. Randine opened her home and started a general support group to help those struggling with infertility issues. RESOLVE of Houston now has five support groups covering adoption, donor options, endometriosis, and High FSH. Randine is presently Vice-President, Support Group Coordinator and Integrated Medicine Liaison. As the Integrated Medicine Liaison her unique and expansive expertise has added a bit of spice to our monthly educational meetings and symposium by suggesting new topics of interest to individuals pursuing other alternative medical treatments. She is our hottest topic, and has quite a following!

She is organizing a summer retreat with all proceeds going to RESOLVE of Houston. She has written many articles for our newsletter and she is always available to speak and help in anyway. She spoke for National RESOLVE on Alternative Medical Treatments this past April at the National Chapter Conference. As Vice-President of RESOLVE Randine works with me to bring in new volunteers to support the many services that we provide. She is a valuable resource to this organization and she has a way of making people feel comfortable that are going through the difficulty of infertility.

Dr. Lewis is truly successful in her unique practice because she cares about each individual?s situation and gives the best possible treatment and direction. Although RESOLVE is not allowed to endorse any individual or enterprise, I can definitively say that we appreciate her support as a volunteer, as a speaker, and feel fortunate to have Dr. Lewis? contribution to our mission."


Robert B. McWilliams, MD
Reproductive Endocrinologist, The Center for Women?s Health Care & Research

"For centuries, traditional Chinese Medicine has been shown to effectively alleviate many human ailments. This age-old system of medicine, one that focuses on each individual?s particular needs, has stood the test of thousands of years. Improvements in health have been shown all over the World including our modern western culture.

Over the past 30 years or so, the effect of traditional Chinese Medicine on human infertility has been studied. Its effect on both female and male infertility treatments has been very encouraging. Such aspects as ovulatory abnormalities, low sperm count in males, effects on sperm antibodies, artificial insemination, and endometriosis, to mention a few, have brought attention to its place as a real potential as a complementary therapy to traditional Western Medicine.

The addition of Dr. Randine Lewis to the practice of reproductive endocrinology adds an extra dimension never before experienced by physicians as well as infertility couples of Houston and south Texas. Focusing her post-graduate studies on fertility has given her a unique view of the frustrations felt by all professionals that delve into the multi-factorial causes of infertility. As a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist combined with her devoted desire to providing quality, natural reproductive enhancements, she is making a difference in those couples who seek her advice.

The patients I have shared with her over the past years have felt that she added significantly to their care and accomplishment of their conception. I have witnessed her ability to not only treat but also educate these patients on the many aspects of dealing with such a stressful condition as infertility. I feel fortunate to have someone like Randine to assist my infertility patients."
