Philadelphia Integrative Medicine's
INTEGRATIVE FERTILITY PROGRAM
Our comprehensive Integrative Fertility Program is designed to support all who seek to achieve pregnancy, including those already incorporating conventional infertility treatments and procedures.
Lauren Houser CRNP guides women and couples through the complicated maze of conventional fertility care, to help improve outcomes for those who elect IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) and those who seek out a comprehensive functional approach before considering this option. Lauren offers cutting edge functional testing to address and treat root causes of infertility including hormone imbalances, impaired methylation, inflammation, nutritional deficiencies, environmental toxicities and other concerns can play a significant role in pregnancy outcomes. Her passion for fertility care grew out of her personal experience using integrative medicine to conceive successfully. Combining her background in both neonatal intensive care and women’s health, Lauren’s offers an expert approach to conception care.
