Recognized as an expert in holistic health, women’s health and holistic fertility enhancement, Keith has more than 20 years’ clinical experience using acupuncture, herbal medicine, and functional medicine to help women and their partners successfully conceive and maintain healthy pregnancies. In 2005 Keith developed his Conscious Conceptions program to educate patients and promote an integrative approach to reproductive medicine by providing holistic preconception planning to patients and actively working to coordinate patient care with other providers. This was one of the first programs in the country that combined Traditional Chinese Medicine, Functional Medicine and Mind-Body medicine for the treatment of infertility. The success of “Conscious Conceptions” helped establish an integrative partnership with Dr. Anish A. Shah of Richmond Center for Fertility & Endocrinology. The Bell/Shah integrative approach to fertility medicine was featured at the very first international fertility symposium in Vancouver, BC in 1995.
