Dr. Read’s Personalized Fertility Program
At Dynamic Natural Medicine, Dr. Read focuses on natural approaches to enhancing fertility. Using a combination of Naturopathic medicine and Chinese medicine, she assists with natural fertility while helping to improve IUI (Intrauterine insemination) or IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) success.
Whether you are having trouble conceiving a baby, or suffering from repeated miscarriages, naturopathic medicine and acupuncture can help increase your fertility.
With 1 in 8 couples having difficulty to conceive, infertility is becoming more common. One-third of infertility is contributed to the female partner, onethird is contributed to the male partner, and one-third is caused by a combination of problems with both partners, therefore, it is critical in Dr. Read’s Fertility Program to treat both the female and male partners in the relationship.
Dr. Read’s personalized fertility program includes an extensive work-up for you and your partner. Work up may include assessment of hormones, toxic burden, genetic testing, and other laboratory testing. We also assess diet, lifestyle as well as emotional and spiritual balance. Treatment is very individualized and may include a combination of Naturopathic and Chinese medicine. Treatment is targeted to not only achieve pregnancy, but for optimal development of baby and mom. Our goal is for a healthy pregnancy, birth and post partum period. We are also there for you when transitioning from post partum period to being a busy mom.
