How Does Naturopathic Medicine Support Fertility?
Hormone Balance: the use of fertility acupuncture, diet & lifestyle changes, nutraceuticals, and botanical therapies are helpful in supporting optimal hormone balance. Improving progesterone production, reducing estrogen dominance, helping to reduce stress hormones (i.e. cortisol), reducing prolactin levels and much more.
Reduce Stress and Anxiety: treatment options also focus on the treatment of the whole person, not just the reproductive organs. The reproductive function of the body is delicate, in that if there is another systemic disease affecting other organs, it can significantly reduce fertility as well (i.e. malnutrition, inflammatory bowel disease, or celiac). Reducing stress and anxiety helps to reduce cortisol levels and reduces the harmful impact of cortisol on the reproductive function of the body.
Improve Male Fertility and Sperm Parameters: sperm health is very much dependant on the antioxidant capacity of the body. Our city lifestyle and air pollution, diet, and lifestyle choices constantly deplete our bodies antioxidants. Decreased antioxidant function in the body leads to oxidative stress and the production of toxins that are harmful for both sperm and egg health and quality.
Nutritional Supplementation: deficiency of certain nutrients, for example Vitamin D, can contribute to infertility. Other important nutrients include Vitamin B12, folic acid, iron, and much more. In many cases, more than just a simple prenatal is needed.
