Our naturopathic doctors have an integrative approach to reproductive health and fertility. They encompass the foundations of wellness (i.e diet, lifestyle, nutrient deficiencies, etc.), herbal medicines, plus the addition of ovulatory drugs and intrauterine inseminations when indicated.
Our doctors take each patient through the foundational phases 1-3 of the IHC Fertility Program (see below), after which more individualized therapies may be prescribed. This may include prescribed bio-identical hormones from a compounding pharmacist (bi-est, tri-est, progesterone, etc.), and /or ovulatory, superovulatory drugs (i.e. Clomid, Tamoxifen, Human Chorionic Gonadatropin [HCG] injections, etc.). Intrauterine inseminations (IUI) may be recommended if you and your partner meet the eligibility criteria, and if IUI is likely to increase your chances of conceiving.
The naturopathic doctors at IHC frequently help couples struggling with one or more miscarriages. Often couples need to experience three miscarriages before an in depth work up is initiated. One or multiple miscarriages may be a result of inadequate progesterone production, hyper-coagulation syndrome, environmental influences, or associated with a reproductive immunological pathophysiology. We believe one miscarriage is indication enough to dive further into possible reasons for the unsuccessful pregnancy. The path from infertility to parenthood is an emotionally difficult journey. We strive to treat each person with the utmost compassion, and we offer customized approaches with the ultimate goal of achieving parenthood.
