Welcome to our leadership blog series! This month Agi Wrobel, Chapter President of the National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, IL., discusses how to use the therapeutic order to address fertility- related concerns.
The Therapeutic Order in Fertility Support
3. Support organs and systems. When we think about what supports our fertility we find that the organs engaged include cardiovascular, nervous, endocrine, reproductive and liver/digestive. liver – why liver? Because it removes excess hormones so we do a liver and uterine detox. Milk thistle and dandelion support the liver. The liver cleanse should begin the first day after the period ends to ovulation. The uterine cleanse begins at ovulation and goes til the first day of the period. For the uterine cleanse, the most nutritious teas can be red raspberry leaf and nettle. Teas, caps and extracts tend to be the best. The cleanse should not exceed 2x/year with at least a 6 month break in between. Other helpful herbs include gelatinized maca, tribuluus terrestris (for both men and women), saw palmetto, vitex, maca and shatavari.
5. Natural substances. It’s impossible to eat perfectly all of the times. Because ofthis, there are some key supplements in preparation for a healthy pregnancy. These include: whole food multi, omega-3, and D3/K2 which is necessary for healthy bone and teeth growth.
