Integrative medicine is the main form of alternative treatment in the field of infertility. It focuses on the optimal health and healing of a patient, taking into account the entire person instead of simply treating her immediate condition with drugs or surgery.
There are a lot of practices offering holistic treatments for many ailments, but you would be hard-pressed to find a doctor offering Infertility treatment using integrative medicine. Typically, when women are failing to conceive, they rush to a facility offering IUI or IVF treatments which involves medications and injecting hormones into the body. To top it all off IUI & IVF treatments are expensive and waste precious time when the biological clock is ticking!
At KôR we start off with a 60 min consultation with Dr. Sajjad in which she gathers the patients’ medical and family and social history. She will then make suggestions for diagnostic tests which will all be done under one roof. Most private OB/GYN practice do not have in-house labs or sonogram services and thus must refer the patient out to other facilities making it inconvenient for the patients. At KôR, it’s a one-stop-shop for women. All appointments for doctor visits, lab, sonograms, etc. are done at the same facility.
Pursuing an integrative approach to the conception process can help women feel more confident and empowered as they prepare for the incredible adventure of welcoming a new life into the world. And for women facing fertility challenges, integrative medicine can offer the additional benefit of providing a strong foundation from which to navigate the emotional roller coaster that can accompany going through fertility treatments, such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF).
