Infertility rates are on the rise for both men and women. Today, nearly 1 in 8 couples are struggling to get pregnant. But even more concerning is the fact that human health is also on the decline- and these are intertwined like chicken and egg.
Conventional medicine's approach to infertility is to use drugs and medical interventions like IUI and in-vitro fertilization to skirt around the patients' sub-fertility and "get them pregnant". This could be problematic, as it does not address the underlying factors that lead to infertility in the first place. Integrative medicine takes a different approach. While patients may be encouraged to use IUI or IVF to increase their odds of pregnancy, the foundation of this care is in improving the health of mom and dad, and thus of egg and sperm, to improve fertility and have a healthier child.
This course provides you with what you need to know about conventional fertility treatment (the process, the meds, etc) so that you can competently collaborate and focuses on the naturopathic and functional approach to evaluating and treating infertility. When a patient is diagnosed with premature ovarian insufficiency and recommended to use an egg donor at age 33, who asks "why"? YOU DO! When a woman's cycle is to short to allow for implantation, who digs deeper to help her restore balance? YOU DO! Or at least, you WILL after this course!
