I’m on a mission to spread the word that women and men actually can have much more control over their fertility than you may realize. For the next four weeks I will be sharing what I have learned from my MD mentors in Europe as well as antidotal information directly from my practice regarding fertility and how individuals or couples can take charge of their own. The natural protocols I use have supported successful pregnancies in each of these stages. And I certainly count myself fortunate to play a role in assisting those interested in conceiving and then supporting the young life they create.
Clients seeking fertility support come to my practice at these various stages:
- Considering pregnancy in the near future and wanting to best prepare.
- Having already tried to conceive on their own without success.
- Having undergone IVF or other medical intervention(s) without success.
In a perfect world, fertility would be valued and protected from birth and everyone would be aware that even simple decisions made for babies and children play a vital role in that child’s future ability to create life. We are learning more each day with the advances in science and two important facts have been established: Soy formula can adversely affect male and female fertility and the early use of antibiotics disrupts the microbiome. (Thus weakening the immune system and the supporting organs for creating life.) So, what could have seemed like a simple in-the-moment decision by your parents or pediatrician can certainly be playing a role in where you are today with your fertility.
Organs Needing Protection
When we think of fertility in women we automatically think of the ovaries, the uterus, and hormones. While all three are important, there is a much deeper connection that lies in the support organs. Those of particular concern include the kidneys, liver, lymphatic system, and adrenal glands. When these organs/systems/glands have been overly used or abused early in life the outcome is often a struggle with fertility.
Specific Cautions for Women
What might over work or abuse the kidney, liver, adrenal and lymphatic system in a woman?
- Antibiotic use, hormonal birth control methods, and the use of Acutane for acne are just a few of the prescription medications that place a toxic load on the body, specifically impacting the kidney and liver.
- A diet high in salt, sugar, and hormone laced food sources such as industry meats, dairy, and soy.
- Chemically laden cosmetics, toiletries, and hair products that young girls are being exposed to as early as the preteen years.
- Over consumption of alcohol or any use of recreational or street drugs.
- Emotional or physical trauma.
How Gemmotherapy Protocols Help Fertility In Women
Gemmotherapy protocols begin by shifting the pH balance of the female body overall, creating an alkaline state to enhance fertility. The protocols are selected by accessing the state of elimination, vitality, and inflammation then combined with a plant based diet in order to optimize elimination. The ability of the body to clean optimally enhances the function of the female fertility support organ/systems mentioned above.
Important to note is that Gemmotherapy protocols will clean, fortify, and restore rather than pushing weak organ systems to perform. Due to this unique action, fertility is addressed at its root. In this series, I will go into further detail on these protocols and how they benefit women as well as men.
Gemmotherapy extracts are derived from specific plants and shrubs that have been historically known for their healing properties. Different from traditional herbal medicines, Gemmotherapy extracts contain embryonic plant tissues that offer tremendous regenerative capabilities, much like human stem cells.
While Gemmotherapy is safe for all ages, there is a small selection of the 60 extracts available that are proven successful in supporting fertility in women and men.
