"Foundations and Applications of Medical Biochemistry in Clinical Practice"
The results from this presentation will suggest that naturopathic interventions could provide a successful, less expensive, and safer method of reversing infertility than medical intervention alone. The cases highlighted in this presentation will describe women who, by conventional medical standards, had a very low statistical likelihood of fecundity, but were able to conceive, maintain a full-term pregnancy, and give birth to healthy babies. This is important for women who struggle with infertility but either cannot afford conventional fertility treatments, do not want to risk the side effects, have ethical, moral, or religious concerns with ART, and/or who need support to improve their chances of not only fertility but fecundity.
By focusing on methods that work with the body to optimize health, this approach has the potential to have lasting positive repercussions for the long term health of both mother and baby. By providing woman-centered care, including continuity of care and informed consent, women are able to take a much more active role in their own health, which is not only empowering, but possibly more effective.
