Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to create a unique message that can be used to contact and get through to an RE&I in their area
  • A working dialogue will be presented and is easily modified for the TCM practitioner to use as talking points with an RE&I
  • To bring awareness about data, research, publications and other resources available to  participants to create their own resources for productive interactions with Reproductive Endocrinologist and Reproductive Urologist

 

 

Paul Magarelli, MD, PhD, F.A.C.O.G.
Location: 
Colorado Springs, Colorado

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.

Dr Magarelli presented the Key Note talk at the 2015 Integrative Fertility Symposium and has been a regular attendee and presenter since.
