Many conventional ob/gyn treatments can suppress or thwart a woman’s reproductive function. Women with irregular or painful periods often are placed on oral contraceptives that artificially regulate menstrual bleeding. Couples suffering from infertility/subfertility are referred to reproductive technologies, such as IVF, that do not restore health, but instead substitute for natural conception.
How is our cooperative restorative approach different?
Our approach to care aims to support and optimize the natural function of a woman’s body as much as possible—to cooperate with her reproductive cycle. We teach women how to recognize and work with their underlying biology, and we use this information to help diagnose and treat health problems, restoring normal function whenever possible. The patient becomes an important member of her own care team, and care is personalized just for her.
Conditions for which the cooperative restorative approach may be helpful include:
- Irregular or painful periods (PMS)
Our approach can appeal to diverse patient populations. It is an excellent option for women/couples who:
- hope to gain knowledge about the design and function of their bodies
- want both members of the couple to participate together in family planning
- seek a minimally-invasive approach to reproductive healthcare
- hold cultural, religious, or personal convictions about methods for avoiding pregnancy or for treating infertility/subfertility
- are looking for more affordable medical interventions
Is our approach right for you?
Reply services include care for couples struggling with infertility/subfertility, care for women suffering from gynecologic issues, personal health coaching, and a patient education program that features fertility awareness instruction, all delivered at a high level of clinical excellence.
Our approach seeks to understand and optimize natural health and fertility, we do not include artificial contraception among our services. We cannot understand women’s individual cycles, and personalize their care, if we are using drugs or devices that suppress the cycle. Instead, we offer fertility awareness for patients seeking to avoid pregnancy.
