Learn an integrative approach to infertility
Planning to conceive can be exciting, overwhelming, or even stressful, depending on your unique circumstances. Whether you are newly embarking on your fertility journey or have been experiencing infertility, a woman’s fertility can be impacted by lifestyle factors, so it is critical to provide your body with a balanced foundation for conception.
Trying an integrative approach to fertility will help to optimize your body for pregnancy. Integrative fertility means taking a whole-person approach to fertility; treating the body, mind and spirit to help you achieve well-being. This approach combines conventional treatments with nutrition, mental health, acupuncture, meditation, yoga and toxin removal to optimize your body for fertility.
Integrative strategies can help you build confidence and feel strong as you prepare for pregnancy or fertility treatments. By developing healthy habits prior to conception, you can take these habits into your pregnancy and parenthood to build a healthy family. Research shows that using integrative approaches to improve physical and emotional well-being can help to improve quality of life, both for women who have not yet tried to conceive and for those undergoing fertility treatments.
