Classical Herbal Formulations to Enhance Fertility
Daoshing Ni, PhD

Hello everyone welcome to the 2022 Yo San University reproductive medicine conference. I am very honored and privileged to teach and share my knowledge on Ba Zhen Tang. We’re going to be looking into this beautiful classical formula but the interesting thing it is not a classical formulary. We almost want to say that this formula is actually more of a contemporary formula, coming out of the Ming dynasty from dr shuji. Did you know that this formula was originally used for recovery for traumatology not actually in obgyn? And later on we adopted this formula in the treatment of women’s condition and disease. It’s a fabulous formula and there’s many ways that you can dice and transform and use it in fertility conditions. That’s my topic in this conference and i look forward to seeing you and spending time with you on this topic. Thank you very much

Fertility Enhancing Diet and Nutrition.
Dr. Mao Shing Ni

Hello, I’m Dr. Mao Shing Ni, co-founder and Chancellor of Yo San University. I invite you to attend the upcoming Integrative Reproductive Medicine Symposium on 26 and 27. Where a lineup of renowned experts from both eastern and western medicine will come together to present the latest knowledge and practices that will contribute to your success rate with your infertility patients.

For my part I will be presenting on Fertility Enhancing Diet and Nutrition. For example everyday I encourage my patients trying to get pregnant to eat more raspberries, chocolate, and fish. Why? while all berries have antioxidant properties that benefit health, the raspberry stands alone as a fertility booster. Not only does the raspberry improve egg quality but it also stabilizes blood sugar brightens your eyesight and strengthens your uterine lining. It can relax the uterus as well helping to prevent miscarriages. Raspberries are among the plants with the highest known fiber content a nutritionally are good source of iron, magnesium and manganese. As an added bonus, raspberries also help improve and beautify your skin. Raspberry leaves which are sometimes prepare as a tea contain vitamins B1, B3 and E, all which help promote a healthy pregnancy.

What about chocolate, you ask. You don’t have to wait for Valentine’s Day to savor a chocolate. Cacao contains rich supplies of iron, magnesium, manganese, calcium, zinc and selenium, all of which are vital for reproductive health and overall wellness Dark chocolate also has the ability to lessen insulin resistance. This is good news for women who have PCOS because insulin resistance and blood sugar dysregulation is a potential cause of infertility. Cacao may also increase serotonin that contribute to a positive mood. Happiness means less stress and more fertility. Make sure to consume chocolate with a cacao content of at least 72%

Then there’s omega-3 fatty acids in wild-caught fish. The DHA and EPA Omega 3 essential fatty acids found in fish reduce inflammation, maintain healthy brain functions and are vital for for fetal brain and – development. reduced inflammation in the pelvic area may also facilitate getting pregnant more easily. Since the oil of fish improves blood flow, it may also improve uterine lining development and promote blood flow to the ovaries.

Want to learn more about how diet and nutrition can positively increase your patient’s chances of getting pregnant and carrying to full term? I hope to see you at the Integrative Reproductive Medicine Symposium.

Help or Harm?
Nutraceuticals and Assisted Reproduction
Paul Magarelli, MD, PhD

In this presentation we will be addressing the area of supplementation and whether or not adding nutrients in the form of vitamins or macromolecules can impact fertility potential. Nutraceuticals are compounds that can contribute to your metabolism both naturally as well as in the higher technologies like in vitro fertilization and ovulation induction.

After 15 years of intensive and broad-based research, TCM has become a staple of Assisted Reproductive Technology care plans. As is true in Western Medicine research, TCM research is not without its controversies. In this lecture, Dr. Magarelli will explore other more far-reaching integrative medicine concepts to further the bond that has developed between these two modalities with the shared goal of One Healthy Baby™.

Learning Objectives:
✅ Oocyte physiology will be used as a backdrop for participant understanding of the principles involved in metabolomics.
✅ Integration of basic tenets of TCM with the pathophysiology of microenvironments will be discussed and participants will be lead down an algorithm to provide healing modalities to change reproductive outcomes in a positive way.
✅ Substantive discussions regarding present and future areas of research in integrative metabolomics will act as a challenge for participants to collaborate in projects

About Paul Magarelli, MD, PhD, F.A.C.O.G.

If you ask anyone in Colorado about Dr Paul Magarelli they will tell you that he makes babies for a living. Dr Magarelli and his Magarelli Fertility Center (MFC) Team have served Colorado and the Western Region as a Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility Specialist since 1998. Over 1,000 babies are part of his legacy, and he has only just begun. His motto of practice began as “High Tech with a Personal Touch” then evolved to “We Heal by Creating Families in an Affordable way”.

Recently Dr Magarelli decided to spearhead a change in how Reproductive Medicine is practised in the United States. He did this by creating HQA-Fertility Care (said HiKu). High Quality Affordable Fertility Care is a revolutionary approach to helping infertility patients get access to all types of fertility care, including High Tech in the forms of IVF/ICSI and Comprehensive Chromosomal Screening (CCS/PGD), at incredibly affordable prices. He changed the average fee for IVF from $18,000 to $9,000 and the typical fees for CCS/PGD from over $36,000 to $13,000. This is a major shift in the accessibility and affordability of infertility care. He did this while preserving his signature 5 Star service guarantee: he and his staff will provide care in a pleasant, compassionate, competent and respectful fashion. He also created a program in which patients with cancers that may make them permanently infertile, can have an IVF cycle at no fee and this includes medications. He is now advancing care for our military with his US Military Family Fertility Services™ non-profit program in which active-duty soldiers can apply for grants for money and/or services.

Dr Magarelli and his wife, Diane K Cridennda, L.Ac., Doctor of Oriental Medicine (NMex), of East Winds Acupuncture in Colorado Springs originated the research to incorporate Acupuncture into IVF treatment cycles. Their C-MAP protocol (Cridennda Magarelli Acupuncture Protocol) is used worldwide to help infertility patients create “One Healthy Baby™”. Both Dr Magarelli and Dr Diane founded and serve on the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine and both are invited lecturers worldwide on topics that range from infertility to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), Menopause, Andropause and the treatment of Insulin Resistance.

Dr Magarelli designed the nation’s first comprehensive clinic to treat Insulin Resistance and its sequelae of diabetes, hypertension, low testosterone, depression, andropause, fatigue and more in his clinic called the Institute for Sustained Health™.

Dr Magarelli remains the only RE in the city with the ability to diagnose and treat folks both locally, nationally and internationally. He is a graduate of Duke University Health Sciences Residency and UCLA RE Fellowship program. He earned his PhD in Nutritional Biochemistry and Physiology at the University of Arizona. Recently he was elected President of the nations’ oldest regional fertility organization, the Pacific Coast Reproductive Society.
