OAT Axis: What Most Doctors Do Not Explain To You When Discussing Fertility

The following video is by a medical doctor Dr. Lam, who talks about information that we, at our clinic, Sharkeys Healing Centre, and natural focus on, on a daily basis. Why? Because this axis directly relates to your fertility.

When going through convention fertility treatment this is completely ignored and likely why many times conventional treatment doesn't help you create a viable pregnancy.

Watch this video to help understand what has been missing in your fertility program (unless you are a patient of ours already). Dr. Lam doesn't specifically mention fertility but this information is applicable to someone who has had recurrent miscarriage, endometriosis, unexplained fertility issues, Pcos (polycystic ovaries), or fibroids.

Enjoy the video!

A couple things to keep in mind:
When Dr. Lam says oestrogen dominance it may not mean excess oestrogen or high oestrogen. He is talking about the balance between oestrogen and progesterone so oestrogen dominance can mean high oestrogen or normal oestrogen but low progesterone. You can also have high oestrogen normal progesterone or high oestrogen and low progesterone. All of these are related to oestrogen dominance.

The thyroid and adrenals work very closely together. If one is not regulating, for example if you are on hypothyroid medication if your adrenals aren't functioning optimally then the medication may not be effective.

For further explanation about how the OAT axis could be impacting your fertility consider having a consultation with us at Sharkeys Healing Centre (Fertility Bible comes with the consultation) or consider investing in the Fertility Bible, Your Five Step Fertility Solution to Becoming Pregnant Naturally or with IVF.
