Individualized Fertility Care

You will receive individualized and comprehensive care to optimize your fertility. I work with individuals and couples in any stage of their fertility journey. The most common barriers to conception are discussed below. You may identify with one of theses diagnoses, or have otherwise “unexplained infertility”. There is always an explanation in naturopathic medicine, as well as an approach to best support you, whether you choose to seek assistive reproductive technologies or pursue conception naturally.

  • Ovulation disorder
  • Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI)
  • Advanced maternal age
  • Poor egg quality
  • Low ovarian reserve
  • PCOS
  • Endometriosis
  • Fibroids
  • Luteal phase defect
  • Toxic exposure
  • Low sperm count, concentration, motility, morphology
  • Varicocele, hydrocele
  • Hyper/Hypothyroidism
  • Autoimmune disease (Celiac, Hashiomoto’s, Graves, anti-sperm antibodies)
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Genetic cause (Congenital adrenal hyperplasia, Kleinfelter’s)

Pre IVF & IUI Support

If you have a scheduled IVF or IUI procedure, naturopathic medicine can be used proactively to improve its success. Nutrition, meal planning, supplements, botanicals, and acupuncture can all be used to support your body and mind and ensure that you’re ready to take on your procedure with peak health.

Pre & Post Embryo Transfer Acupuncture

A 30-minute acupuncture treatment before and after embryo transfer has shown to improve birth rates (43% birth rate), compared to embryo transfers without acupuncture (26% birth rate). This service can also be provided on site at your fertility clinic for an additional fee. It is accompanied by a guided mediation for welcoming your embryo, or simple relaxation music if you prefer.
