Fertility Optimizing Q & A

What causes infertility?

Discovering the root cause of infertility is a critical first step in the process to begin a family. Dr. DeHaas conducts a comprehensive medical and lifestyle assessment to understand your genetics, habits, previous and current illnesses, hormone levels, and nutritional status.

Common conditions that cause female infertility are:

  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Fallopian tube blockage
  • Thyroid disorder
  • Food intolerance
  • Adrenal insufficiency

For men, infertility is often caused by:

  • Poor sperm production
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Heavy metal and chemical toxicity
  • Food intolerance
  • Emotional stressors

What can a naturopathic doctor do to help with fertility?

To optimize your fertility, Dr. Lindsay offers recommendations based on your hormone and nutritional status. Depending on your unique needs and those of your spouse or partner, she may suggest one or several of the following protocols:

  • Herbal supplementation
  • Acupuncture
  • Nutrition and diet therapy
  • Heavy metal testing
  • Genetic testing
  • Infection testing
  • Sperm and egg testing

In addition, to boost your overall health and improve your chances for conception, Dr. Lindsay uses traditional naturopathic strategies to help regulate your menstrual cycle, increase blood flow to your sexual organs, offset effects of conventional medications, identify the time of the month when you are most fertile and decrease your toxin load.

Can a naturopathic doctor help if I choose to pursue assisted reproductive technology?

If you have begun a cycle of in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intrauterine insemination (IUI), Dr. DeHaas offers complementary support to help reduce stress, counteract side effects of fertility medications, improve sperm motility and egg quality, and support the adrenal system.

Dr. DeHaas is passionate about teaming with you during your IVF or IUI treatments to optimize your outcome. As soon as you decide to begin assisted reproductive therapies, reach out to Dr. Lindsay for collaborative support and to prepare your body for IVF and IUI.

If you have been trying to conceive for months or years or are just beginning to think about having a family Dr. DeHaas can help. She offers holistic care to optimize your health and enhance your probability of conceiving. Call for a complimentary consultation or book your appointment online.
