What You Need To Know About The DUTCH Test And Fertility
Feb 17, 2020
I'm excited to welcome Brandy Buskow back to the podcast.
We're digging into a Dutch test and what it means for fertility.
With conventional medicine when you get a blood test for your hormone levels…the approach is to treat the numbers.
This is a Band-Aid approach.
We need to ask WHY is there an imbalance in the first place.
Pushing ahead to a fertility clinic…when you have an infertility diagnosis without digging further does NOT make sense.
Our take is to figure out the WHY first…make the necessary lifestyle shifts and either get pregnant naturally or if you need to go to the fertility clinic you will have set up your body for success.
Plus a blood test does not give us the full picture...and healing opportunities are routinely missed.
The DUTCH test is one of our go to functional tests to help us finally figure our WHY it's not working.
In this episode you'll learn:
1) What it means when your melatonin is low and the connection to gut health. Why continuing to supplement without correcting the root cause doesn’t work.
2) What your cortisol (stress hormone) means for fertility and steps you can take right now. Especially important if you have been under chronic stress.
3) We discuss estrogen dominance (PMS, anxiety, anger, bloating etc) how the DUTCH test helps to give us clues for healing.
4) We dig into low estrogen (which may be the case for low AMH, high FSH, low ovarian reserve…BUT may not be the case for all women with this diagnosis). How the DUTCH test goes deeper and shows us what is actually happening with estrogen levels. Why supplementing with DHEA for low ovarian reserve may not be the best option.
