POSTED BY TORONTO FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE CENTRE
At our IV therapy Toronto lounge, we know that each health journey is unique – this includes struggling with infertility.
Studies reveal that environmental toxins (i.e. heavy metals, BPA, pollutants, etc.) can impede a woman’s reproductive health. For example, harmful elements may trigger infertility by disrupting the endocrine system. Not only does this reduce the chances of natural conception, it may also result in unsuccessful IVF.
So, what exactly are these toxins? How can they impact a woman’s chances for conception? We explain in the next section, and how the Toronto Functional Medicine Centre can address your fertility health goals.
Potentially toxic factors behind infertility
Integrative functional medicine approach to women’s reproductive health
If you think toxins are hindering your fertility, a functional medicine provider can offer support. A personalized service of lab testing (i.e. blood tests) could help establish the root cause of your conception issues. After test results have been examined, an integrative functional medicine treatment plan can be customized to encourage conception.
At the Toronto Functional Medicine Centre, we might discuss these topics during your first consultation and subsequent sessions:

How our clinic works
From nutritional shortcomings to cellular function, we take a detailed approach to your health concerns. Our recommendations could offer symptom relief and prevent chronic illness.
Next to helping optimize fertility, our treatments may address a wide range of health conditions. We can tend to: immune function, energy levels, adrenal function, physical performance, athletic recovery, chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune disease, blood pressure concerns, substance withdrawal symptoms, and other health issues such as fibromyalgia and more. Please don’t hesitate to share your concerns with us!
IV vitamin drip treatments may be used as adjunctive nutritional support. IV Infusions are inserted into the bloodstream; a full absorption of nutrients is provided because it doesn’t pass through the digestive tract. IV nutrient therapy can assist with cleansing and promoting cellular functioning.
Every drip is blended according to the principles of integrative functional medicine. When combined with other strategies (i.e. lifestyle modifications, bio-identical hormone therapy, naturopathy, allopathic medicine), IV vitamin drip treatments can help with optimal functioning. Our IV Lounge carries an assortment of vital nutrients, including folic acid, glutamic acid, mistletoe, Myers Cocktail, vitamin C (ascorbic acid), a blend of amino acids, and other beneficial ingredients.
