Naturopath Fertility Treatments in Edmonton
We typically use hormone testing for investigating fertility issues.
Blood based testing is helpful in this regard as it allows us to analyze ovulatory signals such as LH and FSH.
Adrenal testing is also used as cortisol plays an intimate role with regards to thyroid function and DHEA can be used to improve fertility. Adrenal testing is often done through saliva as a 1 point or 4 point salivary cortisol sample.
DUTCH urinary hormone testing can be helpful in cases of infertility.
Herbs, vitamins & anti-oxidants are usually used for infertility at our Naturopath Clinic.
Dr. Deol has a special interest in fertility and is trained in acupuncture for improving fertility.
Acupuncture is typically recommended by our Naturopaths as part of a comprehensive natural fertility treatment protocol
Hormone Testing for Infertility
Acupuncture can enhance IVF and IUI fertility procedures. Preparing your body before IVF egg transfer or IUI ensures better success, lower treatment side effects, and an increase in pregnancy maintenance and live birth rates.
Acupuncture has positive effects on egg quality and can improve blood flow in the uterus which creates a better environment for implantation.
All of the Naturopaths at TruMed are trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture however, Dr. Deol, Dr. Tran & Dr. Sumar perform the majority of acupuncture at our Edmonton clinic and in some cases may refer out for treatment.
IV Therapy can be used to enhance sperm and egg health.
For men, we tend to emphasize zinc, carnitine and glutathione in our IV Drips to enhance sperm health.
For women, we often emphasize methyl-folate, selenium, NAD+ and glutathione to improve egg quality.
At TruMed our Naturopathic Doctors extremely experienced with use of IV Therapy for many health concerns; we've given thousands of nutritional IV therapy treatments to our Edmonton clients.
DHEA, Desiccated Thyroid and progesterone are commonly suggested options as each has been well studied for improving various aspect of Fertility.
DHEA is a well known adjunct to IVF procedures.
Although Naturopaths in Edmonton and Alberta do not prescribe we are well versed in the use of bio-identical hormones.
