The Dramatic Decline in Human Fertility - Clinical Insights and Approaches from the Peer Review Literature

March 4, 2021
Free Sponsored Webinar

Sponsored by:


Our discussion will encompass downward trends over the last several decades in the United States relative to both male and female fertility.  And what does it mean about the status of human health and risk factors for positive fertility outcomes? Fertility challenges conservatively impact 1 in 8 couples in the United States.  As functional medicine providers, we could easily postulate that optimal fertility is even more fleeting relative to health outcomes for mom and baby.  Humans face a daunting moment as our fertility as a species reflects the toxicity in the world. We will examine variables that are fueling our plummeting healthy pregnancy outcomes.

Our discussion will share actionable peer-reviewed clinical pearls designed to empower couples looking for that extra little nudge to increase the probability of conceiving, carrying to term, and supporting healthy outcomes. Discussion points will include the role of nitric oxide and conception, food sensitivity, environmental toxin testing, and the clinical application of scientifically researched nutraceuticals, antioxidants and other novel considerations.  This webinar is designed to share new clinical pearls to all attendees.
