Meet Los Angeles Naturopathic Medicine Doctor Raquel Hammonds
Naturopathic Medicine Expert
Dr. Raquel Hammonds is the Naturopathic Medicine Expert at the Center for Reproductive Health & Gynecology. Dr. Hammonds explores the root cause of subfertility/infertility in men and women undergoing IVF and IUI. By looking into Gut Imbalances, Micronutrient Deficiencies and Toxin exposure, Dr. Hammonds will remove the obstacles impeding conception to give you and your partner your best chances at conceiving!
What if infertility isn’t a crisis? What if our bodies are overloaded with environmental toxins, lacking the proper foundational building blocks for fertility, and deficient in essential micronutrients necessary for conception? Through careful listening and investigation, Dr. Raquel involves both men and women in their infertility journey and works alongside them to find the root cause of their fertility issues. Proper preconception care has been shown to enhance fertility and lead to healthier outcomes, both for patients who are conceiving naturally and for those who are using assisted reproductive technology (ART).
Dr. Raquel believes that the key to a healthy pregnancy is to cultivate a healthy body first to maximize pregnancy success and nourish the growth of a healthy baby. As an in-house Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Raquel will work in collaboration with Dr. Najmabadi to optimize male and female fertility and give their patients the best care possible.
