Natural Infertility Treatment

by Dr. Pamela Frank, BSc(Hons), ND

In my extensive experience with successfully treating infertility naturally since 1999, the following natural infertility treatments are those that I have found to be most effective in treating infertility, click the links to learn more about each type of treatment:

Science Based Nutrition – What should you eat when you are trying to conceive? Some foods can harm fertility, such as heavy metal polluted fish, while others can enhance it, like healthy protein, fats, fruits and vegetables. I can provide a detailed list of which foods would be best and worst in your specific situation.

Herbal Medicine – Plants have incredible healing properties.  They can help balance hormones, regulate menstrual cycles and promote normal function of the reproductive organs for both men and women.  But, they have to be prescribed and used properly.

Acupuncture  – Scared of needles?  There’s no need to fear these ones.  They’re hardly thicker than a hair, but can balance the body and increase the flow of qi to the reproductive organs. 

Traditional Chinese Medicine – Traditional Chinese Medicine, or TCM, uses combinations of synergistic herbs to balance and restore healthy function to the reproductive system, including the ovaries or testes.  Be careful of the source though as some are contaminated.

Vitamins and Minerals for Infertility – The liver, thyroid, adrenal glands, pituitary, ovaries and/or testes all play a role in fertility and all require certain vitamins and minerals to function at their best. Poor diet, high stress and soil depletion of certain vitamins and minerals can all contribute to deficiency.  Replenishing specific vitamins and minerals, which is determined based on either testing or symptoms, encourages optimal function of the entire endocrine (hormone producing) system for enhanced fertility.
