    I personally haven’t, but I totally would. We’ve been trying for a year and a half and haven’t been able to get pregnant, so I’m thinking its worth a shot. I however believe in that sort of thing so I don’t think it’s witch doctory or anything. I have a friend that was trying to get pregnant for a while and started seeing one. She was on a crazy diet and regimine and ended up getting pregnant, so who knows? It can’t hurt to try, right?

    I think going to a naturopath is just as important as going to a medical doctor!

    I didn’t go prior, but would have if I’d known more about it. I went after TTC for 11 months, and got pregnant 4 months after my first visit. She helped me get my hormones under control and my cycles regular. Also helped my hubby’s health and sperm count. Huge fan of the naturopath here 🙂

    SURE did, without my naturopath we never would have gotten our BFP and be 13 weeks pregnant!

    I started seeing a naturopath at the beginning of MEWC because I get really bad migraines & was in the process of getting off my daily migraine meds. I wanted to find the root cause of my migraines & treat that, not continue on medications that I’d eventually have to give up when I get a BFP. We did a 50 panel blood series, hormone & allergy test. Turns out I have sluggish adrenal glans, I am estrogen dominant with lower than normal progesterone levels, and am allergic to Lima beans and sesame seeds (random). I am now taking a variety of supplments, magnesium, vitamin d3 with k2, adrenal balance something & homocysteine factors, plus progonol cream (plant based progesterone) days CD12-mensturation. I’ve been on the supplements since May 24 & i’m feeling good, I have a lot more energy & no longer take any daily preventative medications for my migraines. I have also been seeing an acupuncturist for 18+ months (I see her every 4 weeks) & she noticed that my pulses between last visit (May 21) & Fridays visit had really calmed down & that my body seems to be calm & happy. She used to describe my pulses as “wirey” and now they are calm. It’s been a great journey for me to explore less than traditional medicine. GL to you!

    I have been considering going to one because I was diagnosed with PCOS and I really want to get it under control and TTC without standard medications.  I’d much rather treat the root of the hormonal issues with supplements, than mask the symptoms with meds.  This thread is just confirming that I need to make an appointment ASAP!

    I’m getting acupuncture while ttC, but I’ve never heard anyrhing about heavy metals before. Very interesting! Hoping acu and herbs does the trick for me.
