In this 60-minute interactive presentation, we will approach advanced naturopathic fertility methods through 5 difficult cases of infertility.  Walk through & participate in 5 cases with different diagnoses & root causes for infertility, including sperm abnormality, poor ovarian reserve, menstrual irregularity, environmental toxicity, autoimmune infertility, and recurrent pregnancy loss. The format of this presentation will include listening to a case presentation and supportive background information followed by guided small and large group discussion around lab interpretation, diagnosis, and building of a comprehensive treatment plan. A web-based game platform (Kahoot) will allow participants to weigh in & share their interpretation in live time. Guaranteed to enhance your comfort with working REAL cases & also to be fun!
