Naturopathic Medicine and Fertility with Aisling Lanigan, ND

What is discussed in this podcast with Aisling Lanigan?

Dr. Aisling discusses the various components that make up her Naturopathic practice, including botanicals (plants), supplements, acupuncture, IV, and homeopathy.

The hosts were curious about the difference between homeopathy and naturopathy. Dr. Aisling mentions how homeopathy is one component that Naturopathic doctors could use when working with a patient. Homeopathy is a traditional approach to helping patients that comes from the theory of like cures like. A common homeopathic product is Arnica, which one of the hosts was familiar with. But there can be many applications of homeopathy. Homeopathy isn’t the biggest component of Dr. Aisling’s practice but the hosts were curious about what it is and how it is used.

Fertility concerns were discussed as well and Dr. Aisling discussed how she would approach a patient who came to her from a Naturopathic doctor’s perspective. One of the hosts is a pediatrician medical doctor and was curious about how their approaches were similar and different. Including which tests and blood tests would be ordered and the natural approach to impact the hormones, specifically estrogen in many cases.
