Why does fertility treatment improve the health of your skin?

Why does fertility treatment improve the health of your skin?

When I see my fertility patients, rarely does our conversation include the health of their skin (unless there is PCOS present), but I can’t tell you how many times I hear my patients notice an improvement to their skin health during treatment.

My response is the same for everyone; I’m not focusing on your skin health I’m focusing on your hormones and reproductive health. However, when the body is working more harmoniously and hormones are regulated, the skin becomes healthier and clearer.

Hormones impact the entire body and the skin is one of the main organs that will often highlight the imbalance in the reproductive system. If the menstrual cycle is irregular, often the skin will present as dull and dry, acne and comedomes can form on the face, especially around the jawline, skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis can become more prevalent and a generalised increase to the sensitivity of the skin occurs.

As a natural health practitioner, my focus is always how the entire body is communicating as a whole. We don’t segment the body as the body energetically talks as one system. So when a couple seek to improve the health to increase their chances of conception typically I will regulate the hormones to encourage healthier follicular and luteal phases in the menstrual cycle, address reproductive illnesses such as dysmenorrhea, endometriosis, PCOS and so on. This approach is essential to healing the body and returning it back to wellness.

In addition, dietary and lifestyle choices are recommended to encourage the treatment protocol. This often means more nutrient dense foods that are high in antioxidants and vitamins B6, C, D, and E, Zinc, and Selenium which are all nutrients that heal the skin. People are encouraged to limit or omit alcohol, sugar and refined carbohydrates as these foods increase inflammation in the body and counteract conception. Again these foods also upset the health of the skin.

So you can see the approach to reproductive health and skin health is very similar. In fact, I believe we must focus on improving overall health of the individual as opposed to one body system.

Diet Tips for Healthy Winter Skin.

July 04, 2019

Winter is a beautiful time of year. It’s the time we can snuggle up with a blanket and enjoy warm meals that are filled with nutrition. For some, it can be a time of lethargy and lack of motivation as the days shorten and the nights become cold. It is for that reason our diet needs to alter with the change in season to nourish our mind to regulate emotions, promote gut health to boost immune health and nourish skin health to cope with the change in weather.
