Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A unique book—the first of its kind. No longer do patients have to accept that their infertility is "just bad luck" and they just have to "keep on trying." No longer should women with recurrent miscarriages have to listen to their doctor telling them that their loss was "God's will" or that they ought to be thankful because their baby was probably chromosomally abnormal. The statistics simply do not support such claims—in fact, they show that repeated reproductive failure can be a symptom of wider health problems in the mother. Furthermore, the root cause can be treated—not only to promote the chances of a successful pregnancy, but to improve the mother's health long-term.

From the Author

In response to growing demand, the thoughts and theories of the internationally acclaimed fertility specialist Dr. Alan Beer have been documented. "Is Your Body Baby-Friendly?" explains for the first time ever why "unexplained" infertility, IVF failures and recurrent miscarriages happen.

This book shows how the immune system can behave in a way that prevents a pregnancy from continuing. High levels of Natural Killer cells, genetic compatibility between partners and blood clotting problems are all significant causes of reproductive failure.

Autoimmunity—either inherited or environmentally triggered—is a major reason for the increase in infertility and miscarriage today. In addition to medical treatments, there are also natural ways that the immune system can be moderated to create a more "baby-friendly" environment.

For the first time, readers will be able to see that their reproductive problems have a root cause and that in many cases, they can be addressed with immune therapy and possibly by making certain changes to their lifestyle.

This is an invaluable resource for patients, OBs, and especially REs. If you've suffered just one m/c, do not blindly accept your OB's advice to simply try again w/o doing any research. After giving birth to a healthy boy, I had my 1st m/c at age 33. My OB told me to try again. After all, it worked the 1st time with the birth of my son. So, we tried and tried and tried. After 3 m/cs, we finally met Dr. Beer, who saw red flags in my immune system. One year later, I was holding my miracle baby girl in my arms at the hospital. Dr. Beer explains a very difficult science in language we can all understand and has helped countless couples complete their families after suffering many tragic losses and being unsuccessfully treated (not to mention financially and emotionally drained) by REs. If only immune testing were routinely performed on all couples seeking help by REs. . . This book is groundbreaking and highly recommended. Thank you to Dr. Beer for dedicating his life to the science of Reproductive Immunology and for sharing his science with us through this book and his medical practice.

After 5 miscarriages and trying practically everything including lots of "normal" blood tests, we finally saw Dr. Beer. We followed his plan, and the next try resulted in our now 17 month old little girl. We have a little boy on the way in one more month, again thanks to Dr. Beer. A friend of mine had a little boy without issue. Then, when trying to get pregnant again, she had 5 IVF failures before going to see Dr. Beer. She did his tests, followed his plan, and the next try was pregnant with her little girl. If you, your friends, or your loved ones are fighting infertility and/or miscarriages, do yourself (or them) a huge favor and start with this book unless you want to go straight to his practice (now taken over by Dr. Stricker but still great). It doesn't have to be so hard! We are forever indebted to Dr. Beer!!!

Format: Paperback
If you have recurrent pregnancy loss that is unexplained or if you have unexplained infertility, you need this book! After having SEVEN second trimester stillbirths and 3 early miscarriages, I have a 4 year old son and an 8 month old daughter. I went from doctor to doctor, from OB to REs, from the local hospital to the Cleveland Clinic and was told that nothing could be found and I wouldn't be able to deliver a live baby. Out of desperation, I searched the internet and found Dr Beer. We decided to try his treatments. It didn't work for me at first, but Dr Beer refused to give up and he contined to give me hope. This man was on a mission and that mission will continue with this book. Dr Beer is able to explain his theories in ways the average person can understand and this is a book that you can take to your doctor. Don't give up until you've read this book.

This book was extremely helpful! I read it cover to cover in a matter of days. Dr. Beer et al have certainly made it easy to understand and explain reasons for unexplained infertility and loss. I would recommend this book to anyone who has suffered through either infertility and/or recurrent miscarriages. In the reference section it lists the clinics which provide the type of care he discusses. I made an appt immediately with Dr. Kwak as she is the closest to our home. She is a gift to work with!

Dr. Beer has hit the nail on the head. I had 6 miscarriages and then found Dr. Beer. His methods work, I now have 3 beautiful boys. Thanks to my RE and OB here and Michigan they worked hand in hand with him and after 8 years of miscarriages we now have completed our family. This book is wonderful, show it to your RE. Just a side note, Dr. Alan Beer passed away on May 1, 2006. We was a wonderful man and thanks to his research I have a wonderdful life with my family.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By D. Klein on June 27, 2007
Format: Paperback
Miscarriage is tragic. Add to that doctors who often have no answers, and parents can feel hopeless after repeated loss. This book provides answers for why losses occur, and how future losses can be prevented. Many of the treatments discussed are outside of mainstream care guidleines- but these are the same old sets of rules that leave so many families without answers. Dr. Beer does a great job explaining his treatments, and any woman who still wonders why she lost multiple pregnancies should read this book. I lost four children before finally being diagnosed with two treatable conditions. It's because of people like Dr. Beer that women like me can end up having our families.

After 5 miscarriages, several rounds of traditional infertility tests and countless shead tears, I had the good fortune to meet Dr Beer via email. Over the course of 3 days and a few simple blood tests, he correctly diagnosed my infertility issues which subsequently lead to the birth of my 3 beautiful Beer-Babies.

When my daughter was 5 weeks old, we got to meet Dr Beer and I can honestly say he was one of the kindest, most understanding, unselfish people I've ever met. Digest the book, then keep searching until you find a doctor who will embrace the material presented here. God Bless.

WOW! Dr. Beer is way ahead of his time and I throughly enjoyed reading his book and understand more about the world of miscarriage and infertility! The only down fall of this book is the medical terminology that most may not understand. Some parts were over my head...but Dr. Beer's theories make complete sense in how the author explains them.
