Fertility is something that we often take for granted. It can come as a huge shock and overwhelming disappointment to find that making babies isn`t always that easy.
A Naturopathic approach
Commonly, I see couples who are faced with unexplained infertility. This is often the most frustrating non-diagnosis that can be given.
Naturopathic principles mean that the body is looked at as a whole, functioning system. Not just a womb, or an ovary, or a sperm cell, but a highly intricate and interconnected mechanism, where one weakness can affect the ability of our reproductive system further down the line. Your whole system will be assessed from your digestion, to your sleeping patterns so that we can unearth any imbalances which may be causing a knock-on effect in producing those precious hormones.
Our fertility can often reflect our overall health, both physically and emotionally. Nutritional deficiencies and mineral imbalances will show up in your cycles, not to mention the effects of stress hormones.
Our busy lives have a huge effect on our metabolism and our bodies ability to reproduce. Often, it is a matter of exploring where you are undernourished and why? Both on a physical and emotional level.
A finely tuned process
If we think of our bodies as a machine, there is a finely tuned production line in every bodily process. It just takes one cog in the system to stop turning at its optimum speed to have a knock-on effect, all the way down to producing those precious hormones that are needed by our reproductive systems.
My practice can support you in recovering your health by ensuring that you are not only taking in the right amount of nutrients, but that you are absorbing them sufficiently. will also take into account any hereditary weaknesses, pre-existing diagnosis' , your adrenal response and microbiome health. Addressing any imbalances in these areas and your diet can play a crucial role in achieving healthier fertility.
