Effective Fertility Treatment: Does Your Health Play a Key Role?

Written By North Dover Chiropractic Wellness Centre on July 7, 2020

rsz pregnancy2For anyone who’s dreamed of being a parent at some point in their life, receiving an infertility diagnosis can be heart-wrenching.

Fertility treatments can cost $10,000 to $15,000 or more, depending on the type of treatment and medications needed. And these treatments aren’t always pleasant either.

Thankfully, there’s another option – natural fertility treatment from your Toms River chiropractor.  

The Role Your Health Plays in Fertility Issues

Dr. Doreen Groves is a chiropractor, registered nurse, and a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. Dr. Grove’s goal is to find the root cause of problems her patients face, including infertility. 

Through her continued research and education, Dr. Groves has found that immunity, lifestyle, and vitamin/mineral deficiencies can be at the heart of some infertility cases. 

In fact, a 2016 study found that the most common causes of fertility issues are: 

  • Problems with sperm (low motility, low count)
  • Ovulation problems
  • Tubal diseases
  • Endometriosis
  • Cancer
  • Age
  • Lifestyle
  • Nutritional deficiencies 

Dr. Groves can assist couples with lifestyle and dietary issues, creating a custom fertility treatment that is safe. 

Better Nutrition and Immunity – Keys to Successful Fertility Treatment 

Not all of the nine to 11% of men and women struggling with fertility have nutritional deficiencies. However, eating a nutrient-dense diet is vital because the healthier your body is, the healthier you and your baby will be. 

Why Focus on Building Immune Health?

Your immune system and that of your partner are key factors in whether you conceive. Autoimmune diseases (like immune infertility) make it difficult to conceive and can lead to miscarriages. 

The Importance of Vitamins and Minerals

All micronutrients are necessary for the development of a healthy baby. Some nutrients, though, can impact whether you conceive in the first place. A zinc deficiency, for example, can affect the quality of egg cells, negatively impacting them during early development.  

Find Out If Nutritional Deficiencies Could be the Cause of Infertility

When you visit Dr. Grove’s Toms River chiropractor office, she’ll perform a series of tests to evaluate your immune health and whether you have any nutrient deficiencies. Then, she’ll create a fertility treatment plan that will address any health issues you’re facing. You’ll have Dr. Groves in your corner, doing all she can to help you create a healthier body for you and your baby.
