As a Fertility Naturopath my area of expertise is female and male reproductive issues. I help optimise fertility for both partners using scientifically validated and evidenced based natural medicine. Female hormonal issues, such as endometriosis, PCOS and age related fertility issues, can often be helped by natural medicine. Male fertility issues such as poor sperm parameters and varicocele also responds well to naturopathic treatment.
A large subset of my clients are currently undergoing IVF or are planning to undergo further IVF/ART treatment. When it comes to IVF - quality is more important than quantity.
IVF clinics are very good at collecting and fertilizing eggs as well as transferring them back into the fallopian tubes. It is however the quality of the egg and the sperm before fertilisation, that determines the quality of an embryo.
Most fertility clinics consider it outside of their scope to improve the quality of the eggs and sperm before fertilisation occurs. This is when seeing a fertility naturopath can help make a difference.
Preconception care is the ultimate in preventative medicine. Couples trying to conceive naturally and couples, using IVF/ART technologies can greatly benefit from natural fertility health care.
A fertility naturopath uses nutritional supplements, herbal medicine, homeopathy, diet and lifestyle guidance to address underlying fertility issues and improve overall health and vitality. Further testing such as functional pathology and hair mineral analysis may also be recommended.
