Active Army Service Leads to a Passion for Reproductive Medicine

With a husband, three children and a busy household in San Diego, those monthly freeway trips between San Diego and LA did not allow time for shopping breaks at South Coast Plaza. While there were lots of sacrifices and a ton of work (with commensurate learning) in the two year program, Gila expanded her knowledge and skills considerably. Besides developing a close network and supportive community of like-minded TCM colleagues among her fellow doctoral candidates and faculty members, Gila engaged numerous clinical experiences that greatly expanded and sharpened her skills and repertoire of approaches for treating the wide range of factors that impact fertility.

Yo San University DAOM graduate, Gila Peled, first engaged medical service in the role of a medic for the Israeli Defense Corps. In addition to learning how to provide medical care for injured and ill soldiers, Gila also taught other medics the vital processes of first aid, CPR and assisting in emergency surgeries. Her passion for medicine and helping people followed her from her homeland of Israel through stints of living and learning in Japan and Asia where she immersed herself in the power of both bodywork and the Eastern Traditions of philosophy, spirituality and wellness. Then it was onto San Diego where she established her family and home. In San Diego Gila further expanded her healthcare skills and credentials by studying Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). She achieved California licensure status as an acupuncturist in 1992. In her busy practice Gila sees a wide range of patients. However, as a mother of three herself, Gila quickly found that for her the cases that provided the greatest challenge as well as the greatest satisfaction were those cases that involved helping couples to successfully conceive and give birth to a child. Gila’s passion for reproductive medicine is visible in her personal demeanor. She exudes enthusiasm, care and expertise regarding the treatment of fertility. Her motivation to learn more about the intricacies of the human reproductive process was further stimulated when she learned of the Yo San University doctoral program with its specialty focus in Reproductive Medicine. In spite of the distance and traffic between San Diego and the Los Angeles/Marina Del Rey area campus of Yo San University, Gila was determined to be a part of the nation’s first doctoral program with focus in Reproductive Medicine. Gila thrived in the intensive once a month weekend residency sessions. With a husband, three children and a busy household in San Diego, those monthly freeway trips between San Diego and LA did not allow time for shopping breaks at South Coast Plaza. While there were lots of sacrifices and a ton of work (with commensurate learning) in the two year program, Gila expanded her knowledge and skills considerably. Besides developing a close network and supportive community of like-minded TCM colleagues among her fellow doctoral candidates and faculty members, Gila engaged numerous clinical experiences that greatly expanded and sharpened her skills and repertoire of approaches for treating the wide range of factors that impact fertility. Among those clinical experiences were included 200 hours of service in the Yo San University Fertility Clinic, as well as a clinical rotation at the Colorado Springs office Dr. Paul Magarelli, YSU DAOM Faculty member and one of the nation’s most recognized reproductive endocrinologists and researchers. In addition to those U. S. based clinical experiences, Gila opted for additional program related travel to take part in the Yo San University DAOM China rotation. In that rotation Gila and several of her DAOM colleagues engaged two weeks of intensive supervised training and participation in the reproductive medicine/ob-gyn clinics of the International Education College and Hospital of the Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. With her doctoral capstone dissertation research project focused on the influence of acupuncture and herbal medicines on semen parameters, Gila generated important new findings regarding male infertility. Above and beyond the intensive engagement of specific theory and practice, Dr. Peled cites that the program “…gave me so much in so many ways that I cannot even begin to count.” Dr. Gila Peled, an expert, qualified and credentialed practitioner at the top of her profession with a passion for reproductive medicine, continues her work near the sunny shores of the Pacific Ocean in Coronado, California.
