Pre-conception Medicine

Anti-Aging medicine for a human begins before one is even born. People are having children later in life, meaning we have been exposed to unhealthy influences for a longer period of time. The health of the mother is very important and may determine whether the future child will be healthy or not. A healthy baby begins with a healthy mother. In order to ensure that you have the best chance to conceive a healthy child with the best chance for a bright and healthy future, we offer a comprehensive pre-maternal evaluation focusing on nutrient deficiencies, dietary evaluation, pesticides, environmental toxins, heavy metals, need for vaccines in the mother, and hormonal balancing. For example, studies have shown that if the mother takes omega-3-fatty acids when she gets pregnant and continues to take them throughout the pregnancy, her baby will have a higher IQ, less of a chance of developing ADD/ADHD, and a lower rate of dyslexia.

Traditional medicine recognizes the need to ensure maternal health during pregnancy and women are advised to take prenatal vitamins. However, more can be done to prevent some unwanted consequences.

In America, a large number of couples are having difficulty trying to get pregnant and maintain that pregnancy. Recent statistics show that 7.4% of all married women between the ages of 15-44 in the USA are infertile, which is defined as not achieving pregnancy despite using no contraception in the past 12 months or more. When the survey considered only married, childless women, this number increases to 16.6%. The incidence of female infertility is significantly age related, being higher with increasing age. The main causes of infertility are significantly attributable to:

  • ovulatory failure
  • tubal damage
  • endometriosis
  • polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • hypometabolism/thyroid deficiency
  • stress
  • toxins
  • unexplained causes

Yet, in the absence of physical cause, many cases of female infertility may be explained by something as simple as a correctable hormone imbalance, which can be assessed by laboratory testing. There are also herbs that can promote fertility.

The environment and our unique biochemical individuality interact to create these issues. The answers are not that simple but many things can be done. You can not afford to wait.
