You are not alone. It is estimated that one in six Canadian couples struggle with fertility.
I take a holistic approach to fertility to improve the chances for a natural and healthy conception by removing obstacles and providing insight and guidance for couples wanting to enhance fertility. My unique approach will guide you through questions and discussions to discover all factors that may be affecting your ability to conceive. In addition, I use both standard medical tests to rule out conditions that may decrease fertility and specialized testing such as salivary or DUTCH hormone testing, thyroid panels, in order to get a full picture of what might be affecting fertility.
There are many ways to support your fertility naturally. Natural fertility treatments aims at figuring out the missing pieces for infertility through comprehensive testing and assessment. Treatments vary from patient to patient depending on unique needs. The main therapies used include nutraceutical supplementations, herbal medicine, fertility acupuncture, and fertility lifestyle and dietary counseling.
These work by improving egg quality, implantation rates, balancing hormones, reducing stress, decreasing obstacles to fertility, increasing overall health and nutrition, increasing blood flow to the pelvic organs, and reducing inflammation.
Not only can I help figure out obstacles to fertility, but I also help couples with known causes of fertility difficulties such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, anovulation, hormonal imbalances, low sperm count and poor sperm quality, as well as those with unexplained infertility. I also welcome couples undergoing conventional treatments, as naturopathic therapies can also improve the success rates of in vitro fertilization (IVF), and intra-uterine insemination (IUI).
One of the best ways to improve fertility and enhancing conventional fertility treatments is to take advantage of acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Acupuncture has been well research for fertility, particularly with regards to PCOS and IVF.
I frequently use acupuncture to enhance natural fertility and improve IVF success rates. Plus, my services are covered by most extended health benefits, making this therapy financially attainable for most couples.
