Infertility

Infertility is big business today.  More and more women are having a hard time getting pregnant.  This is due to the fact that the natural rhythm of our hormones has been disrupted by medication, environmental toxins, stress, and especially the hormones used in the meat and dairy industry.  With all these exogenous factors, it is rare to see a normal female hormone panel.

What is important to understand about hormones, is that the endocrine system is very delicate.  Many things can influence it, and there are many things that can throw it off completely.

 

The first step in treating infertility is to look at a woman’s hormones.  We do this with a month long saliva test that tracks a woman’s hormones throughout the whole month.  A blood test is highly inaccurate when it comes to hormones and only captures the current levels in one day.  Since a woman follows a cycle where her hormones are constantly changing from day to day, a blood test does not give us enough information.  The month long saliva panel is a must and the first step.

 

Once we know what someone’s hormones looks like, it’s not that difficult to tweak them.  This can be through lifestyle and dietary changes, detoxification, supplementation, and regulating the rest of the endocrine system.
