Naturopathic Medicine and Fertility with Dr. Tiffany Bloomingdale (Ep. 12)

Have you ever wondered how a Naturopathic Doctor could help you on your fertility journey? Or how an ND is different from an MD and why would you want to go to a Naturopath? Well – in this episode we’re going explore the world of Naturopathy and why you may want to consider seeing an ND when you’re TTC.

On the episode today I have Dr. Tiffany Bloomingdale of Avant-Garde Healing Arts. She is a licensed naturopathic doctor practicing in the Seattle area. She is passionate about women’s health and perinatal and postpartum care. She is also a yoga teacher and was a yoga student of mine. 

We talk about a lot in this episode:

  • Her story of pregnancy loss and honoring her fertility journey
  • We detail the difference between an allopathic doctor and a naturopathic doctor
  • Tiffany outlines what she would do as an ND if a 39 year old woman walks into her office with a history of infertility, had gone through multiple rounds of IVF, had been pregnant once and miscarried
  • What her go to lab work is for patients
  • As a homeopathic doctor – she explains what homeopathy is and how it works

This was such an interesting conversation and one that we don’t hear about a lot in the fertility world. Tiffany’s honesty about her miscarriage and transformative journey left me in tears – but I hope that you can find inspiration in her words. 

If what you’ve been doing isn’t working – it’s time to look down different pathways for different support. As Tiffany says, her office is often the last stop for people after years of allopathic medicine – what a world it would be if we went to an ND first to heal our whole selves…before trying to fix only the symptoms of a foundation problem.
