"Just imagine what would happen if practicing physicians, the ones who have come into contact directly with suffering humanity, had some acquaintance with Eastern systems of healing. The Spirit of the East surges through every pore as a balm for all afflictions."
– Carl Jung
Treatment Options and Process
The Fertile Soul MethodTM is a proprietary program that integrates the best of Western and Eastern medicine-based knowledge and practices to help you overcome the problem of infertility. Whether you are seeking an all-natural solution or pursuing assisted reproduction therapies (ART procedures), The Fertile Soul can help.
The Fertile Soul MethodTM
The Fertile Soul MethodTM is a process developed by the work of Randine Lewis, utilizing, body, mind, and spirit processes to maximize your fertility and overcome any impediments to becoming pregnant.
"Fertility is one of our deepest energetic expressions. After survival energies, the expression of our fertility comes next. Yet, if our survival energies override our reproductive energies, the scales are tipped against nature. While all of our physiologic energies are being utilized to protect the old ways of being, the life force is not allowed to move into new expressions of possibility. The Fertile Soul Method helps settle down the fight or flight response and harmonize your energies so that the reproductive response can be accessed and expressed.."
No matter what your individual circumstances are, The Fertile Soul Method can help enhance your reproductive response.
"Because of the insights I learned and the changes that occurred during the retreat process, I am grateful I wasn’t able to become pregnant earlier. I went to three retreats. I needed the depth of this work to become fertile and whole, and to become the mother I always knew I could be. My baby daughter thanks you for giving her the Mom she deserved to come to.."
ARTDr. Lewis works with many individuals who are concurrently undergoing medically assisted reproductive therapies to help increase their likelihood for success. During retreat we focus on lowering the physiologic response to stress, balancing your hormones, and increasing the reproductive organs’ response to hormones. We will work with any reproductive clinic to support you during your procedure.
"After four unsuccessful IVFs, I went through retreat, and had the best response ever to my next and last IVF. I am now pregnant for the first time at age 42. Thank you, Fertile Soul.."
CEFPWhen you have completed the retreat process, Dr. Lewis encourages you to seek out supportive care from one of her trained Continuing Excellence in Fertility Professionals. These CEFP members receive ongoing support and training from Dr. Lewis to help develop ongoing life patterns that will support the changes you have been through during retreat, and provide body, mind, and spiritual development through your fertility journey.
Individual MeetingsDr. Lewis will meet with individuals who have completed both the Foundations and Renewal retreats in a full day one on one session where she will personally help hone and deepen the work begun during retreat.
"My personal retreat with Randine changed my life dramatically. I had deep patterns of fear and pain that didn’t respond to any other therapy. Randine’s wisdom, compassion, and faith in my ability to heal made all the difference. After three failed IVFs, I am now five months pregnant, naturally.."
Eastern Medicine Diagnosis & Treatment
All who work with The Fertile Soul consult with one of our staff licensed practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) who specialize in fertility.
The consultation process, whether in person at one of Dr. Lewis' retreats
or by phone , includes a full written and verbal intake of your medical, fertility and health histories, and an
assessment of your physical presentation to the extent permitted by the program you have chosen – in particular, your complexion, tongue and pulses. The
intake process also includes a Chinese Medicine five element profile.
Your TCM practitioner uses all information gathered through the intake process to prepare a Chinese Medicine diagnosis and recommend a treatment plan customized to your particular health picture. The treatment plan will support you with balancing your system, either on your own or working with a local acupuncturist, possibly a member of The Fertile Soul’s Clinical Excellence in Fertility Program. It includes an explanation of your diagnosis and objectives for your treatment program, a custom prescription for Chinese herbs that you may fill at a Chinese herbal pharmacy that we recommend or of your own choice. Your practitioner will suggest nutritional supplements that could be helpful in balancing your system. Finally, your treatment plan may include dietary and/or lifestyle modifications beneficial to addressing your particular imbalances.
