There are many medical approaches that overwhelm the body with hormones to handle infertility. Functional medicine has an entirely different approach for the those who wish to take a more natural route.
The #1 cause of Infertility is PCOS. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine system disorder among women of reproductive age. The mechanism felt to be behind this is Reactive Hypoglycemia and Insulin Resistance. These are known pattens whichs which create insulin surges. These surges create an increase of ovarian enzymes called 17, 20 lyase. This reaction creates an increase in Testosterone in women and in the sex hormone DHEA. The vicious cycle continues when these hormone imbalances create further insulin resistance and surges.
To support the normalization of these mechanisms a combination of supplements, diet and exercise is used. For a fuller understanding and support fill out the MAF and call our office to schedule a consultation. metabolic-question
