Description

Root Cause of Infertility and Hormonal Hell with Dr. Christina Burns

 Committed, compassionate, and highly skilled in multiple disciplines, today’s guest, Dr. Christina Burns, is the founder of Naturna, an integrative health centre dedicated to the fusion of Eastern medicine and Western science. We open our episode by asking Dr. Burns to weigh in on whether or not infertility is on the rise, and she gives us her thoughts on IVF and pregnancy success in women over 35. Next, she weighs in on how constant stimulation impacts your nervous system and reproductive hormones and gives us her definition of what integrative health means. We touch on the areas where Western medicine falls short and Dr. Burns introduces listeners to the Eastern philosophy of the physician as a teacher, with the onus of becoming well falling on the patient. Her clients are often looking to get pregnant, with others going through peri-menopause and other versions of what she calls ‘hormonal hell’. She unpacks what she offers them, before telling us how COVID-19 has impacted her practice and sharing her views on the vaccine. She believes it is powerful to seek out knowledge in preparation for a fertility journey and urges listeners not to neglect the subtle interplay of different factors in your life. We hope you join us to hear from this inspiring expert today!
