Justine Altman joins us today as we’re digging into how to optimize male fertility.
Although we specialize in complex cases such as low AMH, high FSH, diminished ovarian reserve, and premature ovarian insufficiency, more couples are coming to us with both female and male factor infertility.
The Fab Fertile Method is effective at addressing both male and female fertility conditions.
Even if the male partner tells us his semen analysis is fine – we always include a blood chemistry review and a review of his semen analysis using functional reference ranges (these are or optimal levels – so it flags it earlier before it goes to disease) to ensure no healing opportunities have been missed.
So many women are making all the diet and lifestyle changes and the male partner may be supportive and willing to change – but he may not know what can be done to optimize his fertility.
That is why we coach couples. It is not only about getting the female healthy for pregnancy – the male partner must be included to increase the chances of getting pregnant naturally.
Excited for you to learn about how the Fab Fertile Method can improve male fertility. I'm excited to welcome Justine Altman back to the podcast.
Justine is part of my team here at Fab Fertile. She is an integral part of our Couples Coaching program - which uses functional lab testing, diet, and lifestyle changes to dramatically improve conception. If you are struggling with infertility...your body is desperately trying to tell you something...focusing on your health will either help you get pregnant naturally or if you do need to go to the fertility clinic it will improve your chances of success.
Justine is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. She was diagnosed with POCS and struggled with infertility but after taking a functional approach was able to have both her children naturally.
In this episode you'll learn:
1) Functional reference ranges for the semen analysis so we can identify healing opportunities to achieve optimal fertility. We discuss count, motility, morphology, DNA fragmentation and more.
2) Diet/lifestyle and the impact on male fertility
3) Themes we see with male factor fertility
