Dr. Domar gained international recognition for her research into the effectiveness of adding mind body medicine in the treatment of infertility. In a 2011 study published in the journal Fertility and Sterility, she found that infertile women undergoing in vitro feritilsation (IVF), using mind body techniques have a 55% conception rate, compared with 20% not using the techniques. Dr. Domar is the best selling author of Healing Mind, Healthy Woman: Using the Mind/Body Connection to Manage Stress and Take Control of Your Life, Self-Nurture: Learning to Care for Yourself as Effectively as You Care for Everyone Else and co-author of Six Steps to Increased Fertility. She has appeared on The Today Show, Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, Dateline, CNN, CBS Evening News, and NBC Evening News, and featured in numerous publications including the New York Times, The Guardian, People and Vogue.
"I see mind body medicine in practice every day and I wouldn’t be doing it if it wasn’t working. It wouldn’t be ethical for me to be doing it if it wasn’t working. But I also do research and so I know it works."
