There are many ways naturopathic medicine can benefit fertility-nutritional counseling, weight loss/gain and detoxification all play a role in hormone balancing. Improving egg quality and reducing inflammation is done with specific nutrients and diet. Hormone support can improve circulation and implantation. Amino acid therapy can be safely used while trying to conceive as well as during pregnancy as alternatives to medication used for depression and anxiety. Here are some examples of naturopathic testing that Dr. Pratt uses for fertility optimization:
- Comprehensive Female/Male Hormone Profiles
- Cortisol Stress Test or Adrenal Fatigue Stress Panels
- Environmental Pollutants Panel
- Urinary Iodine testing
- ION micronutrient status
- Urinary toxic metals testing
- IgG food sensitivity testing
The most common struggles with infertility we see can be due to the following conditions:
- Hormone imbalances
- Hypothyroidism and thyroiditis
- PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)
- Autoimmune disorders
- Clotting Disorders
