Wellness & Acupuncture

Diet and Lifestyle Matter

Science supports that improving health and wellness can support optimal fertility, and at Hannam Fertility we have naturopaths who can help you.

As an example, a recent study from a team at Harvard University found that a particular dietary pattern in those undergoing IVF was associated with a 56% probability of a live birth, compared to 32% probability in those who had a diet least consistent with this pattern. This dietary pattern is known as the Profertility diet. There is also a large body of evidence that addresses the macronutrient composition of the diet as well as specific foods and their impact on fertility.

Our naturopathic team can help work with you to implement the dietary modifications that are right for you.
