Dr. Spencer Richlin is a busy man these days! He will be speaking next Tuesday at TLC (Total Learning Center in Norwalk CT). Very exciting panel discussing the patient being treated in an integrative manner. The details are as follows:
On Fertile Ground:
Holistic & Traditional Approaches to Infertility
Figures vary, but as many as 40% of infertility cases have been described as 'unexplained' which means that following thorough investigations, doctors can find no specific or identifiable medical problem at the root cause. Clearly even today, it's still a bit of a mystery why pregnancy may or may not occur.
On Fertile Ground is a panel discussion which looks deeper at some possible causes - lifestyle factors, nutritional imbalances, even emotional elements and offers ways in which couples may be able to overcome their fertility challenges by taking responsibility for themselves, rather than handing it all over to the doctors.
Our panel represents Western, Eastern and Integrated approaches to fertility - offering a strong potential for success in promoting fertility.

Next up, is Dr. Joshua Hurwitz. We are delighted to announce that American Registry, a leader in recognizing excellence, has awarded our very own Dr. Joshua Hurtwitz with its prestigious One of 2009's "Most Compassionate Doctors" Award.
Dr. Hurwitz's patients have expressed their esteemed opinion of his bedside manner and have identified him as one of America's Most Compassionate Doctors. Only a handful of physicians receive such complimentary reviews nationally. In fact, of the nation's 720,000 active physicians, less than 3% were awarded this honor in 2009.
Dr. Hurwitz will be presenting at the following of RMACT’s fall seminar series:
Saturday October 30th 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM
The Science of Dieting, Weight and the Fertility Connection
