Having a baby is a precious gift and conceiving should be an easy, natural process. Sadly, many couples have a low natural fertility and struggle to conceive and/or maintain a pregnancy. The causes of infertility are many and varied, affecting both females and males. Sometimes the man’s sperm count is too low; sometimes there is a hormonal imbalance in one or both partners; sometimes lifestyle factors such as diet, alcohol or smoking are at fault; and sometimes there may be no obvious reason at all.
From a holistic, natural perspective, difficulty conceiving can be due to issues such as stress, toxicity, nutritional deficiencies and/or hormonal imbalances. This is why we offer fertility to couples who need assistance to conceive and/or maintain a pregnancy.
Are You Too Stressed to Conceive?
Have you ever noticed that it is often when a couple stops trying to conceive, and they start to relax, that they fall pregnant? The impact of stress on infertility cannot be underestimated, both as a cause and as a consequence of not conceiving, in both partners. Stress impacts the reproductive system on all levels. In fact, stress actually inhibits the reproductive system; so if you are stressed, this may affect your ability to have a baby.
A Detox Can Help!
Toxicity may also affect your ability to conceive. When your body is too toxic, it can be very difficult to conceive and maintain a pregnancy. A comprehensive integrated detoxification program involving both digestive repair and liver regeneration is an important step in infertility treatment and pre-conception care. Naturally Dynamic Health offers individualized detoxification programs that improve liver clearance of hormones and toxins that may impair fertility.
Excess Fat Affects Fertility
Being overweight impairs fertility and is a common cause of miscarriage, gestational diabetes, toxaemia, low birth weight and premature birth. If you are overweight and struggling to conceive, we can help. Our weight loss programs offers dietary advice to assist you in losing weight, making better dietary choices and increasing nutrients critical for fertility and a healthy pregnancy.
Healthy Parents Make Healthy Babies
Nutritional deficiencies can also be a contributing factor in infertility. In order for you to give your little baby the best start in life, it is important that both the mother and father are in optimal health. Our team of naturopaths can help ensure you both have optimal body stores of vitamins and minerals that will support energy production and healthy metabolism, lead to healthy foetal development and reduce stress by recommending nutritional supplements to support both male and female fertility and nutritional status.
Are Your Hormones Out of Balance?
Hormonal imbalances can be a significant factor in infertility. Basically, without the right balance of hormones, it is extremely difficult to conceive. Fortunately, there are some great combinations of herbs and nutrients that can balance your hormones and improve natural fertility. Our naturopaths can work alongside your Doctor in determining your hormonal profile and addressing any imbalances.
If you are experiencing difficulty conceiving, or if you and your partner have decided to start trying contact the clinic and request an appointment with one of our highly qualified Naturopaths for our preconception care/fertility program and the team at Naturally Dynamic Health will give you information and natural support of your reproductive health and assist you both on your pregnancy journey.
