    Acupuncture and Infertility Care

    Acupuncture and Infertility Care

    Welcome to another episode of Food, Freedom, and Fertility. Host Caitlin Johnson speaks with Michelle Oravitz on acupuncture and infertility care.
    Michelle Oravitz, began her career as an architect upon graduating from Philadelphia University. After many years of experiencing missed periods and enduring stress at her high demand job in NYC, she decided to go to an acupuncturist named Dr. Li who immediately regulated her cycle. What she didn’t realize was that her life would take a drastic turn in ways that she couldn’t imagine. Not only did her symptoms resolve, but she also felt a renewed sense of well being and clarity. She was unable to recognize just how disharmonious she felt until she experienced a new sense of well being that arose from her treatments.

    After many years working as an architect, Michelle dreamed of going back to school to learn alternative medicine. When moving to South Florida, she enrolled in an Ayurvedic school which gave her tremendous knowledge about this ancient and rich healing approach. After starting a family, she began researching acupuncture schools in order to expand her healing education with the hope that when her kids began school, she would enroll. She worked from home as a professional artist during her children's early years and when the time was right, she enrolled into school to get her master’s degree in Oriental Medicine. She infused her passion into her studies and graduated Summa Cum Laude and valedictorian of her class.

    Michelle has a profound desire to heal. She views healing as an immensely sacred act that is a honor and a privilege. Her mission is to bring wellness into the world one being at a time. To aid in the healing process with a hope of not only resolving symptoms, but also returning individuals to their natural state of wellbeing. Michelle believes that if she had not gone to a TCM doctor, she probably would have had a hard time getting pregnant with her two children. This has influenced her to develop a special interest in treating gynecological disorders and infertility.
    Michelle hosts ‘The Wholesome Fertility Podcast’ where she provides fertility tips and interviews leading fertility professionals.
    This episode has useful information on trying to conceive, working with Michelle, finding the root cause of your infertility and more!

10/10

So happy I stumbled upon this podcast. It has been so informative and I am learning so much that I failed to learn in basic science courses. As a fellow RD it helps me feel more equipped to help my own patients / clients and has been a blessing during my own fertility and pregnancy journey. I laugh out loud most episodes and they are the epitome of speaking truth WITH grace! Thanks for your work ladies!

Biggest fan

My most listened to podcast of 2023/2024. Not only did this podcast help me when trying to conceive, but it started my journey into exploring functional nutrition. As a fellow RD I appreciate the wealth of information they are sharing with the world. This is so so needed! Listening to Sophia and Caitlin is entertaining and informative - I feel like I’m having a chat with my girlfriends. Love this show so much.

Sophia stop interrupting everyone!!!!

I love this podcast but it’s so annoying when Sophia constantly interrupts her cohost and especially her guests! It makes me so uncomfortable to listen to that and she comes across as arrogant and rude which is awkward. It is very distracting too. I love Caitlin and feel bad for her (and their guests) because Sophia is always interrupting her. Sophia hopefully you can take this piece of constructive criticism and improve the podcast by cutting out the interruptions. Everything else about this podcast is great! Well except all the Jesus talk haha! Super knowledgeable hosts and good content.

Minus one star for Sophia cutting off her cohost and guests and for having to skip through all the Jesus talk but that’s my problem, it’s their podcast and they can praise the Lawd all they want. I simply personally do not like it and choose to skip through those parts which is a bit annoying but that’s their prerogative!
