WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION FOR FERTILITY?

Functional medicine Approach

Functional nutrition for fertility is a therapeutic approach to fertility that looks to determine the root cause of why a couple is not conceiving or carrying a baby to term.

The root cause is identified through in-depth symptom questionnaires, interviews, and lab testing. Practitioners make specific recommendations to support the body’s biochemistry through diet, nutritional supplements, and lifestyle changes.

Using this functional medicine approach, I focus my attention on eight pillars that need to be optimized in order to prepare the body to be in the best place for conception to occur. All of these pillars can be supported with nutrition first, but many people need additional support in the form of a therapeutic supplement protocol that includes herbal formulas, nutraceuticals, and individual nutrients.
