Infertility - Pregnancy Help
What is it?
Simply put infertility is the inability of couple to get pregnant. Unfortunately, this is becoming ever more common in our North American society and we are finding more and more younger woman are now struggling to get pregnant. Often there are underlying issues which are overlooked. At alpineHEALTH, we strive to identify these issues and treat the effects to improve your likelihood of getting pregnant naturally. As most women are already aware, issues are either physical (ex. uterine fibroids, scarred fallopian tubes), hormonal (ex. thyroid, adrenal, PCOS), immunological (sperm antibody), genetic (ex. methylation defects), life style related (ex. stress) or age related (ex. women in their late 30's, early 40's). We will strive to help balance both body and mind to improve your overall fertility.

- May be a simple cause or multi-factoral (more than one issue)
- Lifestyle and diet play a very important part.
- Is often treatable without drugs or IVF (only blocked fallopian tubes require IVF).

How do we treat it?
Most women can conceive and carry a healthy pregnancy without drugs or IVF. Our approach to treatment starts with a thorough examination of the couples current lifestyle and diet, genetic testing, hormone testing. Should these be found to not be issues, we also offer specialized tests (ex. sperm antibody testing). Often changes to lifestyle diet along with medicinal support is all that is needed. Age related issues do take more time, as overall health plays a much more important part for a successful pregnancy for couples in their early forties. Should you want to pursue IVF, our treatment plan will help improve your odds of conceiving this way. Ultimately, our approach leads to a healthier mom, a healthier pregnancy and a healthier baby. We look forward to the privilege of helping you grow your family.
