Naturopathic medicine offers a unique blend of evidence-based supplementation and traditional natural methods to help women and men optimize their fertility. My approach is based on an individualized approach, not applying generalized protocols to every person that walks through the door. Naturopathic medicine works on finding the root cause of infertility, whether it be hormonal imbalances, organ dysfunction, and/or mental-emotional stress. After a thorough intake, top quality laboratory testing, and a detailed assessment, you will go home with a completely individualized treatment plan. My treatments for females often involve cycle regulation, hormone balancing , decreasing systemic inflammation of the body, and addressing nutrient deficiencies. For males, we work on improving sperm count, sperm motility, balancing body pH and male hormone balancing approaches. Whether it be taking a completely natural approach to fertility, or seeking supportive care with IUI/IVF, naturopathic treatments can help couple achieve success.
Typical treatment plans involve a combination of the following:
- Dietary and lifestyle recommendations – this is a major part of treatment, and something I expect my patients to take very seriously. Compliance to dietary changes is essential for successful outcomes.
- Botanical Medicine
- High dose nutrient/supplementation
Naturopathic doctors have been highly successful at helping people with their fertility concerns for many years. I expect a high level of compliance from my patients, and I am open to and encourage working with a team of healthcare providers in order to optimize treatment outcomes.
