Let’s get to the bottom of infertility.

At Newbridge, we understand the heartache and frustration that can accompany the journey of infertility. We are here to offer hope and personalized solutions to help you achieve your dream of starting or expanding your family. Our functional medicine approach to infertility tackles the root causes, empowering you to take charge of your reproductive health and create a brighter future.

What Is Infertility?

Infertility is a complex and multifactorial health condition characterized by the inability to conceive or achieve a successful pregnancy. Functional medicine views infertility as a symptom of underlying imbalances and dysfunctions in the body’s systems, rather than a standalone diagnosis.

Why Choose Functional Medicine for Infertility?

At Newbridge, we recognize that fertility is influenced by various interconnected factors and that restoring optimal reproductive health requires addressing the unique imbalances affecting each individual. Our functional medicine providers look at fertility as not solely dependent on reproductive organs but as involving the intricate interplay of hormones, immune function, gut health, stress levels, environmental exposures, nutrition, and lifestyle choices. A disruption in any of these areas can impact the body’s ability to conceive and maintain a healthy pregnancy.

How Does Newbridge Treat Infertility?

Personalized Treatment Plans

There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to infertility. That’s why we customize each treatment plan to suit your specific needs, lifestyle, and goals. Our functional medicine practitioners will spend time getting to know you, discussing your medical history, lifestyle, and any other relevant factors that might be influencing your fertility. By gaining a comprehensive understanding of your situation, we can design a targeted and effective treatment strategy that addresses a range of factors, such as:

Hormonal Imbalances

Hormonal imbalances are a common contributor to infertility, and they can stem from various sources such as stress, diet, environmental factors, and more. Our functional medicine experts specialize in balancing hormones naturally, through evidence-based dietary changes, lifestyle adjustments, and targeted supplementation if necessary. Restoring hormonal harmony can enhance your fertility and overall well-being.

Nutritional Deficiencies

The better nourished you are before you begin your conception journey, the higher your chances are of achieving and sustaining a pregnancy. There is a multitude of nutrients that are commonly missing or underemphasized in the Western diet, which are critical not only to a woman’s fertility health, but also to the development of a fetus and the mother’s health during pregnancy including for the prevention of diseases like preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, and miscarriage. Our functional medicine process includes the important step of evaluating levels of nutrients like choline, iron, magnesium, B Vitamins, DHA, Vitamin D, Folate, and others in women, to identify deficiencies and to assist in nutritional plans to ensure you are taking in and properly absorbing adequate levels of through diet and supplementation.

Environmental Exposures

Environmental exposures can disrupt the delicate balance of our bodies, affecting fertility. Toxins like heavy metals, mold, plastics, contaminated water, personal beauty products, and others can all cause endocrine disruption in our bodies, leading to health issues that inhibit fertility. The #1 cause of infertility is PCOS, which can be linked to many of these exposure types. At Newbridge, we strive to uncover and minimize your exposure to these harmful elements, creating a safer environment for conception and pregnancy.

Nurturing The Mind-Body Connection

Did you know that 80-90% percent of doctor visits are due to stress? It’s an epidemic in our culture, and it is most certainly a factor in rising infertility rates. Stress can play out in the body as a psycho-neuro-immunological process, and at minimum, alter signals to the hypothalamus, which directly impacts the pituitary gland – a key player in both male fertility (sperm counts) and female infertility (ovulation). This is just one reason why when looking for root causes of infertility, the mind-body connection must be addressed. Our team integrates mindfulness techniques into our treatment plans to help you navigate the emotional factors that influence fertility, providing you with the tools to restore calmness in your body and maintain a positive mindset.

Take the First Step Toward Parenthood

If you’re struggling with infertility and have not seen improvements so far with your fertility specialist, we invite you to take scheduling a consultation with one of our functional medicine experts. Let us be your partner in this process, as we work together to uncover the underlying causes of your infertility and pave the way for a healthier, happier future.
