This protocol was developed for practitioners using Fullscript in Canada and the templates cannot be applied to accounts operating outside of Canada.

Infertility has many causes to address and obstacles to eliminate. Some conditions, which are often overlooked by the traditional medical approach to the treatment of fertility issues, are insulin resistance and inadequate blood glucose regulation, which could lead to weight gain, stress and adrenal exhaustion, hormonal imbalances, and toxic overload. Alone or in combination they might prevent successful conception and pregnancy, even without obvious physical or anatomical flaws of the reproductive system. The holistic approach is helping men and women to achieve optimal health with the ultimate goal of a healthy pregnancy.

For the first two days, take a loading dose of 4 tablespoons (60 mL)

Liver Cleanse™ is an herbal formulation, which provides a rich source of antioxidants that are beneficial for normal liver function and aid in the hepatic biotransformation of endogenous and exogenous toxic compounds.

Tribulus Terrestris

Capsules: 2 capsules, three times per day for one month

Extract: 1 teaspoon (5 mL), four times per day for one month 

Tribulus terrestris is traditionally used in Ayurvedic herbal medicine as an aphrodisiac for men. It also increases the production of luteinizing hormone, which leads to an increase in testosterone production. Tribulus terrestris has also been found to increase the level of free circulating testosterone by approximately 40%. In studies, Tribulus terrestris has been observed to increase sperm count and also sperm motility in males with low sperm count or non-viable sperm. In females, the luteinizing hormone causes maturation of the ova and also controls the production of androgenic hormones (e.g., testosterone). Studies have shown that women with low testosterone levels have a low libido. When testosterone levels in these women have increased artificially by ingesting testosterone, an increase in libido was observed. Tribulus terrestris possesses aphrodisiac and tonic properties. It is effective for men and women.

Horny Goat Weed

1 tablespoon (15 mL), once daily for one month

Horny goat weed is traditionally used to treat low libido, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, pain, and other conditions.

It is effective for men and women to enhance libido.
