Dear Dr. Keith,

Q: I just had 2 surgeries last year for endometriosis and had unexplained infertility for 9 years until the surgery found many problems that were then fixed. This was the first time I ever got a reason for my infertility. I also am diagnosed with chronic daily migraines that are being treated medically and they have told me not to see a chiropractor for an adjustment. Can you help with the infertility? I am also a vegetarian.


Dear Beth,

A: One thing that I noticed when I began practice in Chiropractic was that couples who were previously considered infertile would conceive!  When talking with other Chiropractors, I found that this was a common occurrence when undergoing chiropractic care: increased fertility.
Studies done by Standard Process and Mediherb show over 80% success rate in conceiving after undergoing Nutritional Therapy.
I myself have noticed that upwards of 80% of patients who were considered infertile are able to conceive after undergoing a course of care here at Sheehan Chiropractic.
Why are these numbers so high, and it’s not commonly known that we can help?  In short, it’s because as Chiropractors and Naturopaths, we do not treat disease, we support the patient towards achieving better health.  As a consequence, couples usually become more fertile, but we’re not treating the infertility.  In a society that’s disease based, disease is talked about, not health. In short, after a proper exam, I’ll be able to tell you how I can help you increase your health.

Hope this helps.
Dr. Keith
