According to this reference from a leading authority who has worked with more than 7,000 couples, women who have experienced difficulty conceiving or multiple miscarriages may be suffering from treatable dysfunctions of their immune systems. Providing details that are both technical and accessible, this book explains how chemical therapy can temporarily regulate immune responses that might otherwise unleash natural killer cells. Sections cover the most common and adverse immune problems, including tissue compatibility, blood clotting defects, and antibodies that fight sperm, fetal cells, hormones, and neurotransmitters, and also outline clinical protocol for comprehensive immune testing. The discussion incorporates the author's own dramatic account of his clinical breakthroughs, the rejection of his ideas by mainstream medical practitioners, and his research showing that failed in vitro fertilization (IVF), infertility, and repeated miscarriages are often the result of abnormal immune reactions.

This revised edition of the landmark text includes the latest tests and treatments for those who are experiencing unexplained IVF failure, recurrent miscarriage, or long term infertility. An over activated immune response to pregnancy and blood clotting problems are now being identified in women with these previously "unexplained" conditions. Over half of fertility centers now recommend immune evaluation for women with a history of loss or two or more IVF failures. Centers that specialize in reproductive immunology are seeing success rates of over 85% within three cycles and even saving some couples from expensive and often futile IVF treatment. A fully updated list of all these centers, in the US and abroad, is provided in this book, making this a vital resource for all couples considering fertility treatment and looking for the best options in their area.

'I'm sorry, I didn't mean to cry. But the salons have given me the opportunity to look back and think about my life...I don't talk to anyone about these feelings outside of the salon.' We all carry stories within us - wrenching, redemptive, extraordinary, and laced with unexpected and hard-won wisdom. These are the real-life stories that a group of women tell each other when they gather for a deep and structured conversation - once a month in a suburban living room - about the things that really matter. They discover that life can be a heartbeat away from chaos; that bad things happen to good people; that good people do outrageous things; that the desire for transformation is enduringly human. A mother tells of the heartbreaking loss of control when her daughter develops anorexia. A sister reveals the high psychological cost of being hated by a sibling over the course of her life. Husbands leave wives; wives take lovers; friendships shatter; wrong choices turn out to be right ones; agency is lost and re-claimed. Profound, layered and clear-sighted, this collection of real-life stories reveals the emotional untidiness that lies below the shiny surface of modern life and reminds us of the power of real conversation to enlighten, heal and transform.
