Phase Two is HOW we can help you. Because we support nutrition and lifestyle changes you’re choosing to work with us. HOW we work, is up to you.
Damage to sperm DNA (sperm DNA fragmentation) affects every fertility checkpoint and can increase the risk of miscarriage.
Laboratory Testing – If further testing will produce results that will CHANGE your portfolio and overall treatment plan – so that it is OPTIMAL – you may be referred directly (to test levels of, for example, Testosterone, LH, Estradiol, Semen White Blood Cell Count, Antisperm antibodies)
Male Fertility Nutrition
Phase 3 – PRACTICAL
A few examples of targeted nutrition:
Diabetes adversely influences male fertility at a molecular level. Therefore, your unique carbohydrate metabolism is made to work for you.
Pituitary gland function must be optimal for the release LH and FSH so that the testis produce testosterone and sperm. Your plan cuts out any biological processes that slow this function down.
Similarly, white blood cell count in semen can be treated properly. This is done with dual-therapy antioxidants and correct anti-inflammatory medication.
Phase Four – EFFECTIVE
Your Naturopathic Fertility Portfolio:
- Develops strategies to protect your sperm
- Makes it possible for new treatments to work that may not have done previously
- Improves likelihood that other treatments will work
- Improves likelihood of conceiving naturally, if this is an option
Antioxidants need to be taken up by the body in a form that is bio-available. This is in order to measurably reverse sperm DNA damage by free radicals.
Semen quality is a fundamental biomarker of overall male health.
