Infertility has been defined as the inability to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse, or the inability to carry a pregnancy to live birth. Research has shown that infertility affects 1 in 8 couples, and is slowly increasing with time. As many as 7.4 million women have received infertility services in their lifetime. If you are unsure why you cannot conceive, both partners can be treated if that is what the couple wishes, studies have shown that women attributed to 1/3 of infertility, men also attributed 1/3 of infertility and the last 1/3 is either both partners or an unknown cause. Holistic Health Care can benefit couples who suffer from infertility through the use of acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, and vitamin therapy. This combination of therapies proves to be very successful in helping couples create the family they have hoped for!
We work together as a team to manage emotions and stress, balance and detoxify your body, and make sure that you are receiving the correct amounts of nutrition your body must have. Infertility is linked side by side with stress. This is because stress can cause the infertility, or the infertility causes stress. When your stress is reduced, your chances to conceive increase!
How We Can Help:
Acupuncture – Acupuncture can help to stabilize your body, and focuses on balancing the emotional and hormonal challenges you may be facing. Many of our infertility patients live with the stress of why they cannot conceive, however when we achieve a calm and stable emotional level we have seen our patients thrive! Acupuncture has also been shown to make IVF treatments 60-70% more effective.
Chiropractic Manipulation – Chiropractic Manipulations align your spine enabling proper nerve function, allowing you to manage stress more effectively.
Blood Work – Our expansive blood panel will show us if your infertility could be caused by an insufficiency or toxins and also gives us a great deal of information on the health of your organs. This information allows us to pin point the nature of your infertility.
Diagnostic Testing – We use a functional hormone test, which gives our team the best understanding of how your hormone levels fluctuate throughout the month, through samples taken 11 times in 30 days.
Diet / Nutritional Supplements – Providing you with the correct vitamins, minerals and enzymes prepares your body to have an abundant reserve built up to properly nourish both you and your child.
