Dr. Krumbeck provides drugless natural fertility methods to help you achieve your goal of establishing a healthy pregnancy. Preconception care is comprehensive, individualized and tailored to your health concerns and your time frame. Dr. Krumbeck works with both partners to optimize nutrition, lifestyle, environment and emotional health. She uses effective natural remedies to balance hormones and prepare your body for a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby.
Dr. Krumbeck also offers screening lab work to look for the underlying cause of “unexplained infertility” including testing for genetic mutations like MTHFR, auto-immune (“silent”) thyroid problems, iron deficiency, other autoimmune/rheumatological issues and ovarian count. These labs provide critical knowledge for women who have suffered recurrent miscarriages or who have a long history of failing to conceive.
For male partners Dr. Krumbeck recommends completing a semen analysis with Northwest Cryobank before scheduling a visit at Montana Whole Health. Remember that there is a difference between “normal” and “optimal” sperm counts; in fact, sperm counts have been dropping over time – what was considered normal in the 21st century would have been considered infertile 75 years ago! Dr. Krumbeck will recommend select nutrients and supplements that are scientifically supported to improve both sperm count and motility.
Naturopathic medicine can also improve the odds of conception for patients using IVF or IUI to achieve pregnancy. Dr. Krumbeck is a graduate of the Perfect Fertility program directed by Dr. Jaclyn Chasse, ND, the premier author and researcher of alternative and complementary medicine for fertility issues. Contrary to what many medical providers may tell their patients, there is a vast depth of research into the use of natural substances (herbs or supplements) to improve both ovarian quality and sperm count, quality, and motility.
Dr. Krumbeck provides support for women using IVF or IUI to achieve pregnancy. Using natural methods with IVF and IUI can increase the chance of successful conception and maintenance of your pregnancy. Dr. Krumbeck will work with both partners to reduce stress, optimize health and search for overlooked fertility factors.
