Solving Infertility with Jaclyn Downs

In this episode, we speak with Jaclyn Downs, a functional nutrigenomics consultant, author, and researcher with a passion for fertility optimization and reproductive wellness. Jaclyn explains that nutrigenomics is the interplay between nutrition and our genes, and how nutrition and toxins can affect how our genes are expressed. She provides insights from her comprehensive guidebook, Enhancing Fertility Through Functional Medicine, which focuses on understanding and resolving unexplained infertility.

Her book is aimed at those suffering from advanced maternal age infertility, PCOS, endometriosis, and those preparing for IVF cycles. Jaclyn works closely with fertility practitioners and clients, giving them the tools and information necessary to determine root causes for reproductive challenges.

Functional medicine testing can be used to uncover issues that impair fertility, such as mold toxicity, which can be present in places where it is not visible and can cause allergies and reactions. Inflammation and oxidative stress are leading causes of subfertility and are also discussed.

Tune in to this episode to learn more about how nutrigenomics and functional medicine can help solve unexplained infertility and promote reproductive wellness.
