Natural ways to address root causes of infertility By Prof. Oladapo Ashiru

Image
By Prof. Oladapo Ashiru
Infertility is an alarming modern epidemic affecting more couples than ever. One out of six couples today experience difficulty achieving pregnancy. What was once seen as a woman’s problem is now known to affect men equally.

The natural approach to treating infertility solves the root causes of infertility by addressing all body systems, rather than just focusing solely on the reproductive system. Many couples that can’t become pregnant suffer from a combination of sub-clinical conditions. These conditions can’t cause infertility on their own but, in combination, they can substantially reduce a   couple’s probability of achieving conception.
