Infertility is often caused by health factors that you can address and fix. Fertility is a result of healthy body cells working in harmony to create an environment that can support a developing fetus. This healthy symphony depends on a good balance of hormones, nutrients, biochemistry, and reduced toxins. When any of these factors are not optimal, fertility can suffer, even if you otherwise feel healthy. Many couples are not aware that their internal environment is suboptimal for creating a healthy baby. If you are struggling with infertility, it doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t get pregnant. Many women and men are able to take simple steps to optimize their cellular health, reverse infertility, and have a healthy, beautiful baby. We want to help you along this path.
Infertility can be caused by a variety of different factors, and determining the factor or factors that are causing your infertility can make all the difference in getting you the baby you have been dreaming of.
Biological causes of infertility include metabolic issues, hormonal imbalances, nutrient imbalances, toxin buildup, infection or inflammation, and physical structure issues.
Reproductive technologies such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and Intrauterine insemination can be extremely helpful for increasing your chances of conceiving. However, with their high cost it is important to support your body’s health so it has the ability to initiate and maintain pregnancy if you do receive those interventions.
