Dr.Paul Magarelli, a reproductive endocrinologist, has co-authored and published a groundbreaking study (Fertility and Sterility, Dec.2009) , which identifies how acupuncture regulates the stress hormones that impact ovulation. Below are a couple of interviews with Dr.Magarelli as he explains the benefits of blending eastern and western medicine and beautifully articulates that "the goal of this one medicine is to create a family".

CBC Radio Interview (6min) - Acupuncture's Ability to Regulate the Body's Stress Hormones to Improve IVF Outcomes.

CKNW Radio Interview (19min) - Acupuncture & Hormone levels during IVF.

Note: In the CKNW interview, Dr. Magarelli mentions that it is important to choose an acupuncturist with experience in fertility treatment and a good knowledge of Western medical treatment and protocols, and he refers to the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM). We are pleased to be the only clinic in the south island with a fellow of the ABORM and are proud to provide a high level of TCM care and commitment to our patients.
