IWG's Approach to
Reproductive

“Not only did I get pregnant but it was a happy, healthy pregnancy”

Hear from one of our patients

This patient sought out functional medicine to help improve her overall health and to support her body for pregnancy. She had a history of neural tube defects in a previous pregnancy and wanted to be sure her body was ready for another pregnancy. She was also diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes as an adult and wanted to understand more about her autoimmune condition.

What they came in with:

This patient sought out functional medicine to help improve her overall health and to support her body for pregnancy. She had a history of neural tube defects in a previous pregnancy and wanted to be sure her body was ready for another pregnancy. She was also diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes as an adult and wanted to understand more about her autoimmune condition.

IWG’s custom approach

This patient began on an elimination-style diet to help remove foods that cause inflammation within the gut and contribute to autoimmunity. She was given a custom supplement protocol to help support nutrient levels while also supporting the other causes of autoimmunity.   The patient also utilized customized therapies to remove immune stress such as infrared sauna, detox foot baths, and emotional release technique.  

What we found to be the root cause

Through blood analysis and autonomic response testing, we determined that she had a gene mutation called MTHFR that caused deficiencies in folate, B6, and B12. This is critical to support for pregnancy to prevent neural tube defects. She also had elevated blood values that indicated a severe B12 deficiency. She was also found to have another autoimmune condition called Sjogren’s syndrome that she had not been previously evaluated for.

FUN FACT:

Routine testing for fertility includes sperm and egg quality and very limited genetic testing.  Taking a comprehensive look at immune stress, deficiencies, and autoimmunity can provide more valid information about reproductive troubles.  Reproductive challenges are often due to an imbalance in mom’s body that doesn’t allow for proper growth of the baby, or that might affects mom’s own health.

1 Month results:

The patient was experiencing more energy and was having more stable blood sugar levels. She was enjoying the diet and had even begun working out more regularly.

3 month results:

The patient had completed a new round of blood work that showed improved B vitamin levels and reversal of the antibodies that indicate Sjogren’s syndrome.

6 month results:

At 6 months, her and her husband decided they were ready to begin trying for another baby excited to have taken the steps to support mom’s health.

12 Month Results:

Pending.

Integrative Medicine is the Evolution of Medicine

Let’s be honest, Medicine needs a face lift.  Our goal at IWG is to evolve medicine to be comprehensive, specific, and integrative.  It starts with looking at the whole person and the whole picture.  The measuring of someones physical stress, internal (biochemical) stress, their emotional and energetic stress allows you to provide the proper diagnosis and the most tailored approach to their health care.  The understanding of the integration of our mental state, our physical symptoms, and our internal environment allows for true and sustainable healing.
