Dr. Todd’s Teaching Assessment
So many times in my career I saw patient’s health improve in areas that weren’t even being treated while on the SHAPE Program. I would have to step back and ask, “How did that happen?” Fertility issues were one of those areas. When I stepped away from active practice in 2017, I totaled 17 patients who conceived and brought a child into this world that couldn’t prior to doing the SHAPE Program! I have often said, “If you help someone with hemorrhoids, there is a certain allure. But if you help someone with fertility issues…well, that makes for a good day!” Actually, it makes a good year and probably a good career!
How do fertility issues resolve with the SHAPE Program? I feel this happens because the SHAPE Drops enhance communication between the hypothalamus and pituitary. The end result is better and more accurate hormonal messaging. Several years ago, I brought up fertility at our symposium (at that time, I had 15 fertility successes) and asked if anyone had “accidental” success with fertility to please stand up. We had about 250 practitioners in the audience. 74 stood up! I cried like a baby! Many practitioners approached the podium after that talk and could have stood 2, 3 or 6 times.
I teared up as I read this case. Well done, Dr. Abrams!
