Infertility

Infertility is defined as the inability of a couple to conceive after one year of regular unprotected intercourse, and affects approximately 1 in 5 couples in the USA

 

Any combination of the following disorders attribute to infertility:

  • 35% sperm disorders
  • 20% ovulatory disorders
  • 30% tubal dysfunction
  • 5% abnormal cervical mucus
  • 10% unidentified factors

 

From a Naturopathic standpoint, Dr. Moira Kwok ND will obtain a very thorough medical history in order to put all of your "puzzle pieces" together to form a whole picture of everything that is going on from a health perspective.  From this holistic approach to treatment, she will put together an individualized treatment plan based on a combination of dietary and lifestyle recommendations, supplements, botanicals, acupuncture and/or IV therapy that is based on your specific case.
