Natural Fertility Treatment with Naturopathic Medicine
Fertility & Preconception Care
Naturopathic medicine can be a key part of optimizing fertility. Whether you are hoping to conceive in the near future and and looking for pre-conception care, or you are currently undergoing assisted reproductive techniques and treatments, naturopathic medicine can improve your chances of conception and carrying a healthy baby to term. Working with diet, lifestyle, herbal therapies and acupuncture, we can help those with unexplained fertility concerns, endometriosis, PCOS, POF, hormonal imbalances and irregular cycles.
As a Naturopath, I aim at understanding and treating the root cause of your challenges conceiving. During our first visit I will take a thorough health history as well as look over any testing already done through other specialists or family physicians. If no testing has been performed, I may suggest we explore hormone levels on specific days of your cycle or other factors that may be at play.
Once we have a better idea of the whole picture, a plan is discussed and we allow the body 3-6 months to restore it’s ability to conceive naturally. A treatment plan will most likely include nutritional changes, herbal support, acupuncture and mind-body awareness. My goal is to create balance and vitality in a holistic way with very gentle therapies.
