Bloom Integrative Health is the premiere Integrative Natural Fertility Clinic of Raleigh and The Triangle Area.

Dr. Dishman has been practicing in the field of Integrative and Natural Fertility for a decade and is familiar with all current techniques and medications used in the western, naturopathic and eastern treatment of infertility. Because she is Naturopathic Medical Doctor and an Acupuncturist, she is able to effectively communicate and collaborate with your other healthcare providers in order to create a “team” approach towards achieving your hopes and dreams of creating a family.

Whether you are seeking to enhance fertility naturally or to increase the effectiveness of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) while minimizing side effects, Bloom’s Natural Fertility Program can help you.

Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM) and Acupuncture have centuries old traditions of treating fertility and addressing Endocrine (hormone) imbalances. Naturopathic Medicine involves stimulating the body’s innate ability to be in a state of health and optimal function within the organ systems, such as the reproductive and hormonal systems.

In modern times, acupuncture and CCM are gaining increasing use and support by western medical doctors due to an increase in success rates of pregnancy to term and healthy babies with or without hormone therapy or IVF in women and men who use acupuncture as a preconception modality.

Endocrinology

Dr. Dishman specializes in Functional Endocrinology and is able to address and treat complicated and chronic hormonal cases from an integrative and complementary health care approach. By using standard and specialized medical laboratory testing to assess a base line physiology, she is able to chart and modify your progress according to your individualized treatment protocols. She customizes her treatments with a variety of western and eastern herbs and nutritional supplements as well as nutrition and lifestyle modifications.

Because Acupuncture and Natural Medicine stimulates the cardiovascular system, it simultaneously activates the release of neurotransmitters and hormones, thus stabilizing and improving the function of the endocrine system and the body as a whole. Acupuncture and Natural Medicine play a major role in the normalization of the hypothylamic-putuitary-thyroid-adrenal-ovarian/testicular axis, which is integral to the process achieving optimal hormone balance.

  • Thyroid Disorders: An estimated 27 million Americans suffer from thyroid-related illnesses, the majority of them women. Dr. Dishman has extensive study and practice in a revolutionary breakthrough in the diagnosis and management of Hashimoto’s disease and hypothyroidism.
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): PCOS is one of the most common female endocrine disorders affecting approximately 5-10% of women of reproductive age and is thought to be one of the leading causes of female infertility. Dr. Dishman specializes in treating women with PCOS, offering natural supplementation, nutritional and medicinal support and treatment.
  • Diabetes: An estimated 23 million Americans have diabetes, with more than 5 million of them not yet diagnosed. If you have diabetes, you will want to learn as much as you can about how to take care of yourself. The better you eat and the more you exercise, the more likely you will be able to lead a full and healthy life.
