Kharrazian Institute

Learn the complex and little-known underlying causes of infertility, plus:

  • How to lower your patients’ risk of giving birth to a child with brain and immune disorders
  • How to improve their chances of a healthy recovery from pregnancy

Discover areas of female reproductive health most practitioners don’t even know exist

The incidences of infertility and miscarriages have exploded in the last 30 years and continue to rise, affecting an estimated 10 million couples in the United States by 2025. Scientists are calling declining fertility rates a global crisis. Chances are you have encountered an increasing number of women in your office looking for help with infertility.

At the same time, women who become pregnant are increasingly giving birth to children with chronic immune disorders such as asthma, allergies, autoimmune diseases. Neurological disorders such as ADHD, autism, learning disabilities, and more are also on the rise. Studies link many of these disorders to compromised maternal health.

Add to these alarming statistics the fact that the rate of postpartum depression has increased seven-fold in the last decade. Women also struggle with mood disorders, weight loss resistance, and the development of autoimmune diseases in the postpartum period.

When it comes to fertility, pregnancy, and postpartum health, countless numbers of women are struggling yet have few places to turn for genuine help.

Join the growing number of functional medicine practitioners trained to identify and address underlying reproductive health dysfunctions in women.

Female fertility and pregnancy are about so much more than hormones

Multiple systems in the body work together for healthy female fertility — if you miss one of those systems you can fail your infertility patients

The biggest misconception most people have about infertility is that it is primarily a hormonal disorder.

Female reproductive health also involves a complex integration of multiple pathways that maintain fertility and ensure a healthy pregnancy and childbirth. Critical pathways include:

  • Blood sugar stability
  • Thyroid function
  • Adrenal function
  • Microbiome health
  • Hepatic biotransformation
  • Intestinal integrity
  • Brain health
  • … and more

In the Kharrazian Institute’s Infertility, Prenatal Care, and Maternal Health course, you’ll learn new clinical protocols based on the latest research to address complex underlying mechanisms of infertility.

You’ll also learn strategies that are significantly more in depth than standard health care protocols to support a healthy pregnancy and postpartum period…

… and lower the risk of the childhood immune and neurological disorders, the rates of which are exploding these days.

Do you have patients struggling with stubborn infertility?

Is your intuition telling you there is more to a healthy pregnancy than prenatal vitamins?

Infertility is not just about hormones.

A healthy pregnancy is so much more than taking prenatal vitamins.

When you look at infertility, you need to figure out which systems play a role and the degree of management required:

Restore regularity to abnormal menstrual cycles.

Ensure healthy follicles.

Support the ability to maintain a healthy pregnancy.

Mitigate risk factors for allergies, autism, autoimmunity, or developmental disorders in the offspring.

Enjoy a quick and full recovery from pregnancy and childbirth, free of postpartum depression, weight gain, metabolic dysfunction, mood disorders, autoimmune disease development, and so on.

In my new infertility course, I will connect all the dots and give you a clinical step-by-step approach, so you know exactly what to do and how to evaluate a patient who is struggling with infertility or other reproductive challenges.

Infertility is a red flag for deeper problems

Infertility is not a stand-alone condition. Instead, it’s a red flag for deeper health issues that impact reproduction. Examples include thyroid dysfunction, blood sugar imbalances, environmental toxicity, and poor hormonal feedback loop integration.

These disorders typically go overlooked in the conventional health care model because they are not “diseases,” but rather systemic imbalances with downstream effects that can actually be quite severe…

… and heartbreaking.

Devastating repercussions of female reproductive imbalances include:

  • The inability to get pregnant
  • Repeat miscarriages
  • Postpartum depression or other health issues
  • Discovering your child will have a lifelong battle with a brain development disorder, immune disorder, obesity, allergies, asthma, or other chronic health conditions.

The female endocrine system is under assault like never before in human history.

Unprecedented levels of environmental toxicity, exploding rates of autoimmunity, rampant blood sugar imbalances, and other immune challenges are putting women in exceptional circumstances when it comes to reproductive health.

You are someone invested in helping your patients find optimal health. Become a part of the vanguard of practitioners addressing these challenges head-on with evidence-based, effective clinical strategies.

Learn what new studies — and Dr. Kharrazian’s 20+ years of clinical trial and error and his exhaustive review of the research — tell us about managing female reproductive disorders today.

Introducing the most advanced infertility, prenatal care, and maternal health course offered anywhere on the planet

The Kharrazian Institute Infertility, Prenatal Care, and Maternal Health course is the result of Dr. Kharrazian’s ongoing clinical developments, exhaustive literature reviews, and published research during his last 20+ years of practice.

In this sixth course for the Kharrazian Institute, his goal is to help you fully grasp the pathophysiology of female reproductive disorders in ways that go far beyond standard approaches.

He will take you on the same step-by-step journey of managing female endocrine disorders he uses with his own patients. This is a significantly more in-depth approach than measuring hormones or recommending prenatal vitamins.

You will learn how to evaluate the complex interrelationships between the female endocrine system and the brain, liver, adipocytes, immune system, hepatic system, microbiome, blood sugar system, and more.

You will learn the intricate nuances of female fertility and how to couple a deep grasp of female endocrine function with a thorough patient evaluation. This will allow you to personalize treatment for each patient using diet, nutrition, and lifestyle strategies.

The Kharrazian Institute Infertility, Prenatal Care, and Maternal Health course is the first to integrate female reproductive physiology with the latest findings in neurology and immunology

During this weekend course you’ll not only learn the newest research about female reproduction, you’ll also leave with protocols you can implement in your practice right away.

Topics you’ll master include:

  • Why infertility is often a red flag for deeper problems
  • How to test, identify, and address metabolic imbalances as they relate to infertility
  • How to deliver prenatal care that lowers the risk of giving birth to a child who will develop childhood obesity, asthma, allergies, autism, autoimmunity, and other brain and immune disorders
  • How to help your postpartum patients avoid depression, mood disorders, weight loss resistance, autoimmunity, and chronic fatigue
  • How to assess autoimmune mechanisms in infertility
  • How to address androgen dominance
  • How to manage the woman whose health plummeted after childbirth
  • How and why to support a healthy gut microbiome to support female reproductive health
  • Identifying hidden and lesser known causes of infertility

How many times have you heard this in your office?

Maybe it was their first pregnancy…

… or a subsequent one…

… yet many women can trace the sudden decline of their health to a particular pregnancy.

It wasn’t the pregnancy itself that triggered their problems, but rather already existing risk factors that pregnancy pushed over the edge — factors that go completely ignored in the standard health care model.

Chronic inflammatory conditions, gallstones, autoimmunity, runaway blood sugar disorders, and undiagnosed hypothyroidism are just a few examples.

Then throw in the multiple metabolic, immune, microbiome, and endocrine changes of pregnancy — for many women, pregnancy simply overwhelms their already beleaguered bodies.

As a result, women can emerge from pregnancy with a chronic health disorder, an autoimmune condition, weight loss resistance, brain fog, memory loss, depression, mood disorders, and chronic fatigue.

This situation can have far reaching — even lifelong — impacts on their overall health and well-being.

They are barely able to keep it together during the early years of child rearing, are unable to get back to “normal,” and may not be able to have more children.

Prenatal care is so much more than good prenatal vitamins

In the standard health care model, prenatal care consists largely of general recommendations such as avoid smoking and alcohol and take a prenatal vitamin.

Yet incidences of childhood brain developmental and immune disorders have been soaring in the past couple of decades.

Is this baseline advice really cutting it?

For instance, what about a mother’s current state of autoimmunity or inflammation, which largely go undiagnosed in the conventional model?

What about her:

  • Liver biotransformation pathways
  • Essential fatty acid status
  • Gut microbiome health
  • Blood sugar system
  • Diet and lifestyle
  • Toxic load
  • Inflammatory triggers
  • Antioxidant status?

Although these vital factors are overlooked in most women’s prenatal care, they can play a role in miscarriages, postpartum health issues, and compromised health of the offspring.

Healthy fetal development requires more than a good prenatal vitamin

Lowering the risk of giving birth to a child with brain- or immune-based disorders requires significantly more than a good prenatal vitamin. It even requires more than a healthy diet.

Optimal fetal development depends on the successful integration of multiple complex endocrine responses, shifts in the gut microbiome, healthy immunological shifts, and the ability for all these changes to occur in synchrony with one another.

Yet many women are already experiencing dysfunction in one or more systems before they even conceive, and the various shifts throughout the body during pregnancy and postpartum cause even greater breakdowns.

Dr. Kharrazian is a leading expert in diagnosing and treating infertility, prenatal health, and maternal health

Datis Kharrazian, PhD, DHSc, DC, MS, MMSc, FACN, is a Harvard Medical School trained researcher, clinical research scientist, academic professor, and a functional medicine health care provider. Dr. Kharrazian earned a Master of Medical Science degree (MMSc) in Clinical Investigation from Harvard Medical School, and is a member of the Harvard Medical Alumni Association and the American Association of Immunologists.

Today, Dr. Kharrazian’s clinical models of functional medicine are used by several academic institutions, and thousands of health care clinics and practices providers throughout the world.

He maintains a private practice near San Diego, California, and consults with patients from all over the world who are seeking non-pharmaceutical alternatives. His practice is focused on developing a personalized medical approach using diet, nutrition, and lifestyle approaches.

After decades of analyzing thousands of studies and working with patients in the United States and Europe, Dr. Kharrazian developed never-taught-before clinical strategies to successfully manage infertility, prenatal care, and maternal health.

Is the Kharrazian Institute infertility, prenatal care, and maternal health course right for you?

The Kharrazian Institute infertility, prenatal care, and maternal health course is not for everyone. See if the course features below are right for you:

  • Practitioners who want to perform in-depth evaluations to understand the underlying mechanisms of their patients’ reproductive disorders
  • Health care providers looking to evolve their infertility, prenatal care, and maternal health treatment plans to better help more clinically complex patients
  • Providers willing to expand reproductive health care to include brain health, autoimmune mechanisms, gut and liver issues, microbome health, loss of oral tolerance, and other related issues
  • Practitioners looking for a one-size-fits-all diet and supplement protocol
  • Providers who don’t have the time or energy to master the underlying complexities of many infertility and maternal health cases
  • Practitioners who prefer not to work with patients whose infertility disorders in themselves underlie other complex chronic health and autoimmune disorders
  • Providers not interested in addressing neurological health

Are you taking care of the gut microbiome in your infertility and pregnancy patients?

The role of the gut microbiome is one of the more powerful—yet overlooked—aspects of female fertility and pregnancy health. That’s because gut bacteria profoundly impact hormones.

Consider the following ways a healthy gut microbiome affects female reproduction, which are totally overlooked in the standard health care model:

  • Transforms hormones into metabolites that have far reaching impacts throughout the body
  • Releases immune cells that regulate hormone and immune function
  • Helps ensure healthy fetal development
  • Helps ensure healthy breast milk
  • Helps prevent postpartum depression

When the gut microbiome and circulatory system are invaded by infectious bacteria, a woman’s chances at healthy fertility, pregnancy, and postpartum recovery decline significantly.

Additionally, research shows an unhealthy gut microbiome:

  • Increases the risk of diabetes and obesity in the offspring
  • Increases the risk of allergies and immune disorders in the offspring
  • Leads to postpartum depression and mood disorders
  • Prevents the loss of pregnancy weight

Pregnancy changes the composition and activity of the gut microbiome by design. However, when a woman enters pregnancy with an unhealthy gut microbiome, this can have far-reaching implications for the health of both the mother and her developing fetus.

And some women never learn how to recover their microbiome health, yet instead succumb to ever declining health.

How common is it for prenatal care providers to address gut microbiome health?

(Hint: Taking a probiotic is not the answer.)

Set yourself apart from run-of-the-mill prenatal care by understanding the diverse and powerful ways the gut microbiome impacts female reproductive health and how to support a healthy gut microbiome.

The most common cause of infertility

Health care appears to be in the dark when it comes to the underlying factors that promote the most common cause of infertility: An increase in androgens, or male hormones such as testosterone.

Why are male hormones high in so many women, sabotaging their reproductive health?

Insulin.

The standard American diet, particularly in the US, and the lack of physical activity has created severe hormonal imbalances in many women, making it difficult for them to conceive when they’re ready to start a family.

It has also led to PCOS being the most common hormonal disorder in women today.

Excess carbohydrates, processed foods, industrialized oils, toxic food additives, inflammatory foods, high sugar contents, and a relentless and ubiquitous onslaught of advertising geared to keep Americans eating 24/7 has decimated the female endocrine system.

These factors trigger ongoing insulin surges that elevate androgens and disrupt the multiple delicately balanced systems that support healthy hormones.

Not only does this cause infertility, it also leads to other symptoms of elevated androgens:

  • Ovarian cysts
  • Female balding. In fact, this mechanism is the leading cause of hair loss in women.
  • Increased growth of facial hair
  • Difficulty losing weight
  • Elevated blood sugar and insulin resistance
  • Overeating
  • Intense sugar cravings
  • Irregular periods
  • Acne
  • Reduction in breast size
  • Loss of libido
  • Chronic inflammation, pain, and swelling

Unwinding the vicious cycle of insulin resistance and androgen dominance requires drastic changes in diet and lifestyle habits.

However, many practitioners make the mistake of expecting their patients to make these changes in overly dramatic leaps, which can backfire…

… managing insulin resistance and androgen dominance is not as simple as it sounds.

Conventional medicine overlooks the underlying causes of androgen dominance, putting many patients on a path of stubborn infertility, hormonal difficulties, and dependence on medications.

Set yourself apart by learning how to evaluate and manage this mechanism using diet, nutrition and lifestyle approaches.

Autoimmunity: The under-investigated cause of infertility

Despite skyrocketing rates of autoimmunity, it is an under-investigated cause of infertility by most health care practitioners in both conventional and alternative medicine.

In fact, I automatically screen all my infertility patients for ovarian autoimmunity. If the test comes back positive, I then work with the patient to determine the prognosis—if the condition is too advanced, they may have missed their window for conception.

Many women trying to get pregnant already have at least one autoimmune disorder that is not yet diagnosed. This means they are at increased risk of ovarian autoimmunity.

Clues to possible ovarian autoimmunity include another autoimmune disease, elevated follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and loss of the menstrual cycle prior to the age of 40.

Identifying ovarian autoimmunity is important not only to address infertility, but also to prevent the worsening of her autoimmunity or development of new autoimmune diseases.

Managing autoimmunity will also lower the risk of brain and immune disorders in her offspring. Children born to women with unmanaged autoimmunity are more at risk for autism, allergies, asthma, and more.

The immune and hormonal shifts of pregnancy may also worsen the autoimmunity.

Lesser known and hidden causes of infertility

One of the worst things an infertility patient can experience is being told the cause of her infertility is unknown. In these patients, there may not be an obvious pattern of symptoms.

While not all patient cases are resolvable, many patients go undiagnosed and untreated simply because current research findings haven’t made their way into doctor’s offices.

For instance, the average practitioner was never taught that fertility relies on the interrelationships between multiple systems in the body, and that a breakdown in any one of those systems can cascade into system-wide dysfunction.

While you must always rule out disease and pathology, at the same time you must search for physiological imbalances that are not diseases but that nevertheless impact the female endocrine system.

Structural abnormalities such as pelvic adhesions and tubular blockages can also cause infertility, however, also consider factors such as:

  • Hypothalamic-pituitary disorders
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Pituitary adenoma
  • Extremely low cholesterol
  • Poor essential fatty acid status
  • Toxic endocrine disrupters

In the Kharrazian Institute infertility, prenatal care, and maternal health course, I will discuss this subset of patients who often respond favorably to a personalized lifestyle model to address subtle metabolic dysfunctions.

Here is why you need to sign up for the Kharrazian Institute infertility, prenatal care, and maternal health course

Infertility and female hormonal imbalances are among the most common health disorders in both conventional and alternative medicine today. Practitioners in both models are failing countless numbers of patients who do not fit the basic treatment plans. Yet the demand for effective infertility and prenatal care is huge and continues to grow.

Tragically, many patients suffer for years with unresolved infertility, which is heartbreaking for them. Many could have lowered their risk of giving birth to a child with brain and immune disorders if only they had had appropriate prenatal care.

Most infertility patients visit multiple doctors before finding the care they need. Dr. Kharrazian will teach you how to be the practitioner they stick with.

Be the change the world of medicine so desperately needs, and a much-needed alternative to the disregard many infertility patients endure.

Testimonials about the Kharrazian Institute courses

– Carri

The very first course I attended with Dr. Kharrazian was his Functional Endocrinology course back in 2003 and boy did that ever rock my world. His Kharrazian Institute Neuroinflammation course just did the same thing… but on a MUCH larger scale. It’s a total game changer. Paradigm shifting. I’m 20+ years in practice and I’ve noticed patients are getting so much harder to treat, with much more complex and chronic issues, and now I have a much better understanding why and what to do about it! Dr. K — thank you for putting this revolutionary information together!

– Christopher

I’ve practiced 23 years and one of my biggest pet peeves was “shooting blind.” By this I mean, “It’s been determined by years of clinical use that such and such a remedy is good for the treatment of X.” I always felt inadequate, exposed, and unsure of the variables. I can’t express in words the degree of appreciation I have for your dedication to determining mechanisms, researching studies, and most importantly breaking down this disparate information into readily accessible and mostly easy to understand, maps of malfunctioning physiology. I have found it invaluable. As you repeatedly stressed at your Functional Neurology Seminars program in the past, it’s sloppy clinical work to proceed with treatment until a clear picture of where the dominos fell first is figured out, so the appropriate treatment is arrived at. A million thanks to a fabulous contributor.

– Steven

This seminar was more eye opening about why some of these chronic failures we’ve all had as practitioners need more of a neuro-metabolic approach and to give yourself and the patient time and give realistic expectations so we both don’t get burned out or disappointed. That was huge for me. Thanks Dr. Kharrazian.

– Diego

This has been a freaking gorgeous course. Looking forward to the digestive health course in September.

– Xavier

What a blessing to have been able to follow that neuroinflammation course. Full of scientific data but lots of clinical applications that are very helpful for practitioners. I’m very happy to be able to follow that course since nothing is available like this in France. This should be taught in med school. Thank you Dr. Datis Kharrazian!

– Judy

What a brilliant lecture and very clinical. Hammering home the points and reviewing while we went along really prepared me for the exam. So practical and I will be attending the next two in the series. Very well done. Really can’t say enough good things today. Thanks to everyone involved to pull it off and make livestream possible for me here in Canada.

– Greg

Dr. Kharrazian has literally given me hope and if I could use one word to describe my weekend it would be “PROFOUND”. I am truly grateful for you!!!

– Lapis
