Did you know that many of the causes of infertility are greatly helped with Naturopathic Medicine? Even if you have been diagnosed with “unexplained infertility”. Under the Naturopathic medical model, there are plenty of causative factors that are easily assisted with naturopathic care. For example, slight hormonal imbalances; caused by subclinical hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, or food sensitivities can hinder your ability to conceive. These issues will not be diagnosed or looked for by your family doctor. There are many more factors like this to consider.
At our clinic, we use very sensitive assessment tools, like salivary hormone testing, and Auricular medicine. This allows us to pick up on very subtle imbalances. Natural therapies such as acupuncture, nutrition, herbal and homeopathic medicine effectively allow us to remove blockages, diminish stress, balance blood sugar, hormones, the immune system, and detoxification and methylation pathways – all very important and necessary when trying to conceive, have a healthy pregnancy, and labour.
