Natural Fertility Support

Updated: Apr 5

We offer comprehensive fertility support services at Darou Wellness, through our complete practitioner team.

Naturopathic Medicine

Natural fertility support is the use of optimal nutrition programs, evidence-based nutritional supplements, reduction in stress, acupuncture treatment and overall health support to ensure that your body is in optimal health to conceive.

If you are having trouble getting pregnant, yet everything has tested normally so far, the missing pieces have simply not yet been discovered. This where a change of perspective is helpful to examine other areas that may be impeding your fertility.

Some of the areas that will be looked at include:

  1. Stress hormones and overall stress levels

  2. Immune system function, especially towards hidden autoimmune disease

  3. A more comprehensive look at egg quality

  4. Luteal phase factors: progesterone levels, stability and luteal phase length

  5. Implantation issues

  6. Uterine lining receptivity

  7. Hidden endometriosis

  8. Clotting factors

  9. Issues with cervical fluid

  10. Blood sugar regulation and polycystic ovaries

  11. Optimal thyroid function

  12. Detailed male factors

To determine where the missing pieces lie for your fertility, lab testing will be used whenever possible, along with a reassessment of previous tests. The overall premise is that a healthy body will conceive – we simply need to remove the obstacles.

Treatment for known fertility obstacles is also available, often with excellent success rates. There are natural treatment programs available for conditions such as:

  1. Endometriosis

  2. PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)

  3. Luteal phase defect

  4. Low ovarian reserve / high FSH

  5. Male factor infertility

  6. and more.

(If your condition is not on this list, please ask!)

The good news is that there are many ways to support your fertility naturally, with the overall premise that a healthy body will conceive.
