If there is one medical condition that has undergone very little innovation in the past half-a-century, infertility has got to be near the top of the list. While all approaches address the same root problem, the way they go about it is dramatically different. Here at the Health for Life Medical Center, we believe one approach is the best: NaPro TECHNOLOGY™.
There are several different types of infertility, whether it be problems with ovulation, damaged fallopian tubes or some other unexplained reason. Usually, default treatments for infertility involve medications, such as Clomiphene or Metformin. Other treatments might include hormone injections, insemination or surgery. Only now are people starting to become aware of other, less invasive, and far more natural methods. One such example is that of NaPro TECHNOLOGY™. Have you heard of it? Let’s did a little deeper into NaPro TECHNOLOGY™ and how this little-known method of addressing infertility could be the answer you need to become pregnant, staying pregnant, and giving birth to a healthy baby.
Explaining the benefits of NaPro TECHNOLOGY™
When addressing infertility, the traditional way, physicians rarely consider a woman’s individual cycle pattern. And don’t think we are only talking about women. Male infertility sits at the root of many couples’ fertility problems, yet many don’t realize it because they are too focused on if the problem is with the woman. At Health for Life Medical Center, we understand that couples need insight as to how their lifestyle affects fertility.
Our system, following tried-and-true NaPro TECHNOLOGY™ methods, has a unique advantage: It works to address and enhance a couple’s natural body cycles. Utilizing NaPro TECHNOLOGY™ also requires a physician to work with patients on a chart designed to provide couples with insight into how their everyday life, activities, food, alcohol, and drug intake affects male and female fertility levels.
These charts form what is called a cycle assessment phase and this happens before any treatment begins. For a woman’s chart, as an example, the woman will record on the chart her mucus levels, any bleeding at the end of the cycle prior to the next menstrual period, or any other signs or symptoms.
Once treatment has commenced, then the patient and physician(s) will compare the chart’s pre- and post-treatment results. Fortunately, this method can track much more than just mucus and unusual bleeding. Charting represents the core of NaPro TECHNOLOGY™.
First developed by Dr. Thomas Hilgers, NaPro TECHNOLOGY™ represents a new age of reproductive science. When treatments work naturally with a woman’s cycle and aim to address the underlying cause of infertility, patients go from a “mask or treat” paradigm to a “prevent and cure” paradigm. With over 30 years of research having gone into developing this method, the solutions offered by NaPro TECHNOLOGY™ are both proven and effective.
Conditions NaPro TECHNOLOGY™ treats
This technique is designed to address solutions to infertility, PCOS, endometriosis and other health issues and more. Using the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System, the methodologies used in this approach, NaPro TECHNOLOGY™ treats:

- Postpartum Depression
- Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
- Prematurity Prevention
- Ovarian Cysts

The best part of NaPro TECHNOLOGY™ is that it uses neither suppressive nor destructive approaches, with birth control being one example of suppressive.
