Infertility - A Growing Problem

Natural Fertility Treatment

It is more and more evident that couples are experiencing infertility issues.  Over the last 15 years clients requesting natural fertility treatment have increased significantly at the Washington Institute of Natural Medicine in Washington D.C.
Many of the clients that contact the Institute have already been to their gynecologists and fertility experts only to find out that all of their tests are normal and there is no explained reason for the infertility.  In these particular situations the Washington Institute’s staff can have a significant impact on the client’s goal of successfully obtaining and maintaining a pregnancy.

I am Dr. Victoria Goldsten, an Integrative Homeopath and the director of the Institute. As the director of the Institute and a practitioner, I first was unsure if I was going to treat infertility naturally. 
Over 20 years ago when I first started my practice I became acquainted with infertility with a client that just had one ovary.  This client initially asked for my assistance for her irregular menstruation.  She had previously been on fertility drugs and had two viable pregnancies.  My original goal and her request was to balance her female system and in doing so I placed her on professional homeopathic formulas to balance the female hormonal system and to detox the liver.  The formulations worked well in regulating her menstruation and surprisingly she became pregnant without the use of the fertility drugs. At that point I knew I could help women become pregnant naturally.

After that first client with infertility, I helped numerous women with natural remedies that had the goal of becoming pregnant.  Although each case was somewhat different, I typically have had amazing results. One client in particular came to me after trying to get pregnant for two years.  She had seen all of her medical doctors and everything appeared normal.  I placed her on a homeopathic treatment plan and she became pregnant just after two months.  The results were quite inspiring.  Due to these results I felt compelled to write this article so I could let young couples know that there is help for them naturally.
When selecting a natural health care fertility plan it is important to illustrate that natural medicine does not replace conventional care but rather augments it.  In this process the client seeking natural fertility needs to have the proper assessments with conventional medicine and natural health care practitioners.

When a natural health care assessment is completed, the practitioner uses a variety of evaluative skills that help the practitioner understand what organ systems need support and healing.  This is a holistic approach including emotional, physical, nutritional, and detoxification care.
