Five main causes of infertility
At Concept Wellness, we find there are five major sources of fertility problems. During the initial consultation, we will take a comprehensive look at your health and determine if these factors are impacting your health and fertility. In this way, we create tailored treatments to address underlying problems and promote fertility.
At Concept Wellness, we evaluate the full hormonal picture – estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) as well as thyroid and adrenal hormones and those produced by the pituitary gland. While age, stress, and diet can disrupt hormones, many other factors can play a role. Fortunately, acupuncture, herbs, and nutritional supplements are wonderful at balancing hormones. Indeed, a local reproductive endocrinologist says “we turned back the hands of time” on a woman’s ovarian health after she followed the Concept Wellness Program to balance her hormones. She is now the mother of a three-year-old boy.
Cellular inflammation and oxidative stress are the root cause of premature aging and disease. And chronic low-level inflammation can impact fertility in a host of ways — from damaging a developing egg or sperm to disrupting the proper function of the endocrine system, causing hormonal imbalances. The Concept Wellness Program is designed to quench the inflammatory process and deliver powerful nutrients and antioxidants to your system.
In both men and women, undiagnosed infections of the reproductive tract can be at the root of infertility. We help patients determine whether they are suffering from infections and offer the best treatment options for them, including custom herbal formulas that safely and effectively clear common infections in men and women.
Some foods boost our health and fertility, while others cause imbalances in our bodies that can have a negative impact on fertility. At Concept Wellness, we guide you in choosing a fertility-promoting diet and identify foods in your diet that may be unhealthy for you. We will also suggest appropriate nutritional supplements, based on your individual needs.
When animals face stress in the wild, reproduction is affected. The same is true for humans. The Concept Wellness Consultation and Wellness Programs are designed to identify and treat the types of insidious stress that may adversely affect fertility.
We know that people’s lives are busy, and we understand how much the struggle to get pregnant can cause stress, anxiety, and even depression. Acupuncture is a powerful treatment to combat the effects of stress in the body and is an important part of any fertility wellness plan. If needed, we can provide natural alternatives to medications for depression, anxiety, and insomnia.
Some of our practitioners offer a support group to help guide women through the fertility journey.
We approach the fertility journey a bit differently than many health care providers, as our practitioners Riann Bullock and Michelle Siazon share in the video here. Learn more details about our Fertility Wellness Program.
We love supporting your dreams and flipping the script, as the theme of this year’s National Infertility Week encourages, to introduce complementary techniques and new hope for those who want to build families.
