Professionals on the natural path to pregnancy
Welcome to the home of the Clinical Excellence in Fertility Professionals (CEFP). The CEFP is a close-knit community of highly educated and self-developed professionals who have had direct access to the teachings of Dr. Randine Lewis, author of The Infertility Cure and The Way of The Fertile Soul. CEFP members have trained through Dr. Lewis' successful Fertile Soul Retreat Series and receive ongoing education and support through participation in an extensive online community, bi-monthly clinical case presentations, and bi-annual practitioner retreats. The essence of the work of the CEFP lies both in the clinical complexities of holistic fertility medicine and the subtleties of meeting women and couples exactly where they are - mentally, emotionally and spiritually - with their pure desire for a healthy pregnancy.
Treating infertility with skill and compassion
Each of the members you will discover through the “Find A Practitioner” link has spent many hours in direct immersion with Dr. Lewis and the Fertile Soul team on retreat. Working directly with patients and under her supervision, these unique individuals have learned from the inside out her successful methods of treatment and patient interaction. This deep level of experience and guidance has increased their abilities to address many of the common clinical and emotional challenges unique to the fertility struggle.
The integrity of our community
The specialization of fertility-based medicine is rapidly expanding, not only into the Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine community, but also into complementary medicine as a whole. A value-centered organization is essential to preserve the integrity of the work for the practitioners themselves as well as the patients. When working so intimately at this level it is critical to have a community of healers from all facets of medicine to help and assist one another in the diagnosis, treatment and understanding of one of the most sensitive issues in a patient's life - the struggle with infertility.
The educational subject material for the CEFP can be as focused as auto-immune diagnosis and the complexities of their case management to communication and interaction with the western reproductive medical community; from business and practice management unique to the fertility specialization to a full and direct immersion into the five-element self inquiry process as a practitioner in this challenging and rewarding area of work. The emphasis of the group is always service to its membership, addressing our needs for growth and development as practitioners and, by extension, deepening our ability to serve our patients and one another.
