Brandy Buskow joins us today as we’re digging into Dutch Test and what it means for fertility.

With conventional medicine when you get a blood test for your hormone levels…the approach is to treat the numbers. This is a Band-Aid approach. We need to ask WHY is there an imbalance in the first place.

The functional approach seeks to find these answers….and allow your body to heal and prepare for pregnancy. Running to a fertility clinic FIRST without sorting out the WHY…doesn’t make sense and is and an out dated approach to infertility.

We believe in a Round Table approach to healing. Which includes your RE, OB/GYN, Fertility Coach, Nutritionist, Acupuncturist, Chiropractor, Masseuse, Hypnotherapist etc). Not all at once of course!

With YOU in the center.

We are the conductor of our own healing…and the conventional model…excludes these essential opportunities for healing…and while this approach may work for some…there are others who experience…failed cycle after failed cycle…loss and heartbreak.

My mission is for us to stop and actually listen to what our body is desperately trying to tell us.

When your body is under attack (by either an autoimmune disease, gut infection, food sensitivity, high stress) it does not want to procreate…it wants to survive.

Pushing ahead to a fertility clinic…when you have an infertility diagnosis without digging further does not make sense.

Our take is to figure out the WHY first…make the necessary lifestyle shifts and either get pregnant naturally or if you need to go to the fertility clinic you will have set up your body for success.

The DUTCH test is one of our go to tests to figure out the WHY.

On this podcast you’ll learn:

  • What it means when your melatonin is low and the connection to gut health. Why continuing to supplement without correcting the root cause doesn’t work.
  • What your cortisol (stress hormone) means for fertility and steps you can take right now. Especially important if you have been under chronic stress.
  • We discuss estrogen dominance (PMS, anxiety, anger, bloating etc) how the DUTCH test helps to give us clues for healing.
  • We dig into low estrogen (which may be the case for low AMH, high FSH, low ovarian reserve…BUT may not be the case for all women with this diagnosis). How the DUTCH test goes deeper and shows us what is actually happening with estrogen levels.
  • Why supplementing with DHEA for low ovarian reserve may not be the best option.
