  Title A review of complementary and alternative care for infertility issues
Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2010 Dec;11(2):804-810
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Review

Objective: To describe and discuss various forms of complementary and alternative health care (CAHC) for reducing the negative impact of stress and to promote fertility.

Background: Conventional medical treatments for infertility are advancing rapidly along with the cost of these procedures. Due to the invasive practices and expense, many couples are seeking CAHC care as an independent or as a co-treatment with medical care.

Methods: Narrative overview of the literature synthesizing the findings within the literature retrieved from searches of computerized databases and authoritative texts.

Discussion: An overview of chiropractic, acupuncture, massage therapy, natural hormone therapy, detoxification, nutrition, and stress management and how each approaches care for infertility. The primary goal of each discipline is to utilize the body’s innate healing capacity, restoring balance and function.

Conclusion: Stressors, ranging from internal negative thought processes to external environmental factors, all play a role in decreasing the delicate balance of fertility. Although a different approach is utilized in each discipline listed, all work to restore homeostasis and create a positive fertility cycle. Further investigation within this new paradigm is required of these care plans.
