Functional medicine can provide answers as to why you’re having difficulty conceiving.

While functional medicine can’t guarantee you’ll conceive, it can provide you with answers as to why you aren’t yet able to get pregnant. Based on the information your Toms River wellness practitioner receives from diagnostic testing, you might find a fertility treatment that is both safe and effective.

What Is Functional Medicine and How Can It Provide Answers?

The goal of functional medicine isn’t to simply treat a symptom – it’s to find the root cause of a health issue, like infertility.

For example, a physician might diagnose the following in a couple struggling with infertility:

  • Endometriosis
  • PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome)
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Hormonal dysfunction
  • Low sperm count

From there, they might recommend surgery or medications, but they often don’t answer an important question: Why.

  • Why are you having difficulty getting pregnant?
  • Why is your body producing fibroids, cysts, or endometrial adhesions?
  • Why is the sperm count low?
  • Why is there a hormonal imbalance?

Getting to the “why” can help a functional medicine provider find ways to remedy the cause of your infertility.

Improving Your Overall Health – the Best Fertility Treatment

Your body is wise and every symptom you have is a form of communication, a way for your body to tell you that something needs to be addressed.

If you’re not getting pregnant or you’re continually miscarrying, your body could be telling you that it’s currently not healthy enough to support a pregnancy or carry a baby to term.

Unfortunately, many doctors don’t consider this, instead opting for a modern fertility treatment that forces the body to do something it may not be healthy enough to do.

In this moment, instead of forcing your body to do anything, take the time to care for and nourish it thoroughly. Talk to Dr. Doreen Groves – a chiropractor, registered nurse, and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner – about your infertility diagnosis. With thorough testing, she can determine where your body – or that of your partner – might be experiencing weakness and/or imbalance. (hormone issues, nutritional deficiencies, high levels of inflammation).

From there, she can recommend dietary and lifestyle changes that will help you achieve optimal health, something that can improve your chances of getting pregnant.

Avoid the Adverse Effects of Modern Fertility Treatments

Modern medicine has come a long way. Unfortunately, fertility treatments can wreak havoc with your hormones. While you might get pregnant, the medications can put you on a physical and emotional rollercoaster.

Additionally, no long-term studies have been done to determine the impact high levels of hormones have on the mother and baby.

Before deciding to go this route, talk to your Toms River functional medicine practitioner. Take the time to heal your body and achieve optimal health. Doing so will be good for both you and your baby.
