NaProTechnology is a specific way to treat the reproductive disorders in women’s health and includes a specific approach to diagnose and treat these conditions. Treatment can include surgical, medical, nutritional, supplemental, medication, and lifestyle changes.
NaProTechnology is pro-woman, life affirming women’s healthcare. This type of care works directly with the woman’s fertility. Providers trained in NaProTechnology work to identify the root causes of infertility. They work to understand what hormones you may be deficient in, lifestyle factors you can change, exploratory surgeries, blood work, etc.
Physicians who practice NaProTechnology have been trained and certified by the Saint Paul VI Institute in Omaha, Nebraska. These providers use the Creighton Model Fertility Method to understand and diagnose the woman’s fertility cycle. However, you do not have to be charting using the Creighton Method to receive NaProTechnology care.
Physicians and medical consultants trained in NaProTechnology utilize technology, blood tests, hormone panels, exploratory surgeries, and strong diagnostic tests to identify and treat underlying reproductive disorders and hormonal imbalances. NaProTechnology works with the women’s body by understanding what is not working to treat the underlying issues. Many approaches such as IUI and IVF bypass the problem completely, using technology and medicine to make a baby – not treating the underlying diagnosis and disregarding the health of the woman.
Diagnoses that can be helped with NaProTechnology include:
◻️ Irregular, Painful Cycles
◻️ PMS Symptoms
◻️ Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
◻️ Hormonal Abnormalities
◻️ Miscarriage/Repetitive Miscarriage
Dietary insufficiencies, persistent fatigue, chronic anxiety, sleep deprivation, and poor stress management techniques can all be contributing factors to a couple’s infertility diagnosis.
Lifestyle choices emphasizing a whole foods, plant-based diet, daily movement, exercise, and prayer can all have a greater impact on reproductive and overall health. Speak with your provider about these components to see where you can begin to improve your lifestyle for optimal health status.
