So many areas can impact fertility (e.g hormone imbalances, inflammation, autoimmune diseases, nutritional deficiencies, thyroid issues, gut health, folic acid metabolism, and allergies to name a few) and these are areas that are often not investigated by GPs and fertility clinics. In my clinic, I do a holistic fertility fitness check to try and identify the root cause of what may be causing the fertility issue and offer a treatment plan of nourishing foods and essential supplements that are going to create a healthy environment for conception.
During the consultation, I will do an overhaul of your diet to make sure you are eating the key foods and nutrients for fertility. I will also perform some clinical assessments to see if you have any signs or symptoms of imbalances or nutritional deficiencies that may be contributing to infertility. This may include iridology, sclerology, nail, face, and tongue analysis, muscle testing, blood pressure, zinc and iodine tests, adrenal stress, thyroid function tests.
Additional functional testing such as blood tests (including full thyroid panel, MTFHR, vitamin D) food intolerance tests, Hair Mineral Trace Analysis (HTMA), or the DUTCH hormone tests may be requested to further investigate your case. There will be an additional charge for these. At the end of each consultation, you will receive meal plans, handouts, and other resources to help you on your fertility journey.
