Fertility is something that we often take for granted. It can come as a huge shock and be overwhelmingly upsetting to find that making babies isn`t always that easy.
A Naturopathic approach
Fertility challenges have become so much more common over the years. There are many reasons for this.
Research tells us that this is a shared problem, with roughly a third of problems being attributed to the female, a third for the male and a third as a combination of the two. For this reason, it is really important to nourish your fertiltiy as a couple. In my practice I insist upon supporting the males health as well as the females. Commonly, I see couples who are faced with challenges due to PCOS, sperm malformation, endometriosis, ovulatory problems and very commonly, unexplained infertility. This is often the most frustrating non-diagnosis that can be given.
A finely tuned process
Your fertility can often reflect your overall health, both physically and emotionally. Something somewhere is imbalanced in your body. 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.
Naturopathic principles mean that the body is looked at as a whole, functioning system and your whole health will be supported to be brought back into balance. You are more than just a womb, or an ovary, or a sperm cell. You are a highly intricate and interconnected mechanism, where one weakness can affect the whole body and your reproductive system further down the line.
In my practice, your whole system will be assessed and functional tests will be needed to assess certain things. We will look at your digestion, family history, early years, sleeping patterns, your adrenal response and microbiome health and much, much more.
