Fertility and Pregnancy
Natural therapies can be used successfully either as a natural alternative or as a complementary and integrative approach to conventional assisted reproductive technologies such as IVF. By assessing each individual and addressing the root cause, there is much that can be done to help couples conceive. Whether it is hormonal imbalance, poor nutritional health status, poor sperm production/motility, stress or an underlying condition such as PCOS, endometriosis, or fibroids that is affecting the reproductive health, naturopathic treatments can help address these issues and consequently promote conception. One or more natural treatments such as nutrition including dietary, supplements and vitamin injections, acupuncture, homeopathy, herbal medicine, and lifestyle counseling may be used depending on each case. All naturopathic treatments are individualized for each patient because the underlying mechanisms for each case are different for different people. It is through this comprehensive approach of assessing each patient’s individual needs and the strengthening of both the physical and mental spheres that a healthy environment is created for conception to occur.
