Natural Adrenal and Thyroid Support
Before you conceive, ensure that you and your partner are both healthy and fit. That is one of the best gifts that you can give to your unborn child.
Egg and sperm are essential as both father and mother contribute 50% of the DNA to a growing embryo. The health of the father and mother before a baby is conceived is vital.
Men will continuously make new sperm, which takes around 65 days to be produced in the testes. Sperm have antioxidant protective mechanisms that are limited and can be damaged. The lifestyle and health of the man during this time can impact sperm health.
Women are born with all of the eggs for their life lying dormant in the ovaries. Every month, fertile women will have a single egg to be ovulated. Dormant eggs are protected because of the inactive state, but four days before ovulation, the cellular activity will increase, which can cause the egg to be easily damaged.
There is not a single organ in your body that will function on its own because they are interconnected. If you want to pass on healthy genetics, then you need to be in good health.
How We Help
Our approach will focus on getting you and your partner in the best health possible to conceive.
We will dig deep to find out everything about your current health that could affect your ability for a healthy conception, pregnancy, and birth. We understand that the father and the mother's health at conception may affect the child's long-term health, chronic diseases, and fertility. That is called epigenetics.
Our doctors have a particular interest in preconception health and natural fertility. They are here to help you prepare your body for pregnancy and remove the guesswork of why you are not conceiving or carrying a baby full-term. We can work with you before and during IVF.
Factors that can Impact Your Fertility
Blood Sugar Regulation: Low and high blood sugar imbalances can cause fertility problems in women and men. Blood sugar imbalances can cause inflammation and impact the epigenetics of your child.
Hormonal Imbalances: High testosterone or low progesterone in women or high estrogen or low testosterone in men can affect fertility. Causes of hormonal imbalances are environmental chemicals found in plastics and cosmetics, body composition, adrenal or thyroid imbalances, stress, genetic variations, poor liver detoxification, and oral contraceptives.
Weight Management: Too little or too much body fat can impact fertility. Fat cells can produce hormones like estrogen and inflammatory hormones. Fat cells will store heavy metals and environmental toxins, so you must detoxify to remove these damaging compounds if you want to lose weight.
Thyroid Imbalances: Underactive or overactive thyroid function may impact your fertility negatively. Your thyroid is what helps to regulate your sex hormones, and that can affect your stress level.
Immune and Inflammation Imbalances: Inflammation can happen due to emotional or physical stressors, dietary, infective, and various environmental reasons. Autoimmune diseases, gut health, and allergies like IBS and SIBO can cause inflammation in other parts of the body.
Digestive Issues: You could be eating all of the right foods, but if you do not absorb them, you will not get the nutrients needed. Any digestive issues may be caused by gut bacterial overgrowth, immune imbalances, or food intolerances. Gut bacteria will help with the immune system of your baby during pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding. When you have a poor gut, bacteria can be linked to an increased risk of allergies, asthma, eczema, ear infections, and colds.
Nutritional Deficiencies: Common deficiencies vital for fertility include vitamin E, vitamin D, vitamin C, zinc, selenium, choline, iodine, fatty acids, B12, iron, folate, and protein.
Toxicity: Hormone disrupting chemicals like organophosphates, parabens, and phthalates found in household cleaners, new clothing, cosmetics, pollution, pesticides, and plastics. You can find heavy metals found in amalgam fillings, old paints, large fish, and more. Mold spores can lead to immune activation. The list goes on, but we will help look for excess areas of exposure and help you make better choices.
Depression, Anxiety, and Stress: Your body does not want to be pregnant if dealing with a lot of stress. That is why stress can cause you to miscarry, delay ovulation or skip periods. Stress can affect males by decreasing testosterone levels.
