Femme Fertility Upgrade

Fertility rates are lowering throughout the world. In the UK alone there has been a drop in XX%. Live births are now at their lowest since records began. In 2018 births are down 3.2% on the previous year and down 10% from 2012, with 6 Million IVF births since 1978. 1 in 8 women in the UK have experienced a period of infertility, with difficulty becoming pregnant after a year of regular unprotected sexual intercourse. Lifestyle, diet, age and environment all impact on the decisions for, or the complications to conceiving. In recent years we have seen the societal trend for women to wait until later in life to begin families, which can have an effect on their natural fertility viability.  In addition, conditions which can impact fertility such as Endometriosis and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome are on the rise. Our Fem Fertility test is created to give an insight on the female viability for fertilization and healthy pregnancy. Using key markers which consider sex hormone production, ovarian reserves (AMH), (oxidative) stress, thyroid hormones, blood sugar management, key mineral nutrient status and viral or toxic markers of concern. This comprehensive test also covers thyroglobulin antibodies, Epstein Barr Virus and aluminum levels which have been implicated in fertility issues. FDX Fertility assessment considers 13 body systems, 7 accessory systems, 7 macronutrient systems, 14 micro-nutrient deficiencies and 40 clinical dysfunctions to reveal more about your client’s health picture is their body ready, willing and able to support the creation of life?
