On episode 47 of the Peace with Endo Podcast I chatted with Michelle Oravitz, a fertility acupuncturist, who is passionate about empowering women and couples to take ownership of their health and wellness.
Her methods encompass not only herbs and acupuncture but also diet, supplements, essential oils and most importantly the mind and how it influences conception.
In today’s show…
- Michelle shared her success in regulating her period through traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM.
- We talked about why a healthy menstrual cycle is important, even if you’re not trying to get pregnant;
- How acupuncture works and how it can help balance things out in your body and mind;
- Patterns that can show up with endo and/or infertility;
- And the role of the mind/body connection when it comes to fertility, including positive impacts from hypnosis and meditation.
I hope you enjoy our conversation today and it inspires you to trust the process of healing your body, mind and spirit.

About Michelle Oravitz
Michelle Oravitz is a fertility acupuncturist who decided to change her career from architecture to natural medicine in the early 2000’s. It was not until her life was transformed by acupuncture, that she thought of changing her career from architecture to natural medicine.
Michelle suffered from missed periods from the time she was thirteen. After years of being prescribed the birth control pill by Western medicine doctors and then coming off the pill to continued missed periods, she decided to go to an acupuncturist named Dr. Li who immediately regulated her cycle. Michelle also noticed that the acupuncture created a sense of wellbeing and that her energy increased. It was this transforming event that inspired her to learn Ayurveda and later Traditional Chinese Medicine. She also realized that had it not been for Dr. Li, she would have struggled for many years to get pregnant. This realization, and a natural fascination to learn about fertility drew her to specialize in fertility wellness.
Michelle is the host of ‘The Wholesome Fertility Podcast’ where she features leading professionals from the fertility world along with her own fertility wellness tips to her listeners.
