Fertility

Hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, stress and other lifestyle factors all have an impact on your ability to conceive. Regulation ovulation can be affected by body weight, sleep patterns, caffeine consumption, environmental toxicity, history of birth control pill use and other factors.

Our natural approach to fertility addresses your complete health in order to remove any factors that may be affecting your chances of conception.

As each person is unique, so are the treatment protocols. Your treatment plan may include: fertility awareness for men and women, optimizing nutritional intake, menstrual cycle tracking, hormone balancing herbs, vitamins for egg and sperm quality, stress reduction and acupuncture treatments.

These therapies can be used on their own or in conjunction with conventional fertility treatments such as IVF (in vitro fertilization) and IUI (intra uterine insemination).

Acupuncture is one of our preferred treatment methods. It can improve fertility and success rates of IVF and IUI in the following ways:

  • Stimulates the function of the ovaries to produce better quality eggs.

  • Regulates the menstrual cycle (and its hormones) to produce a larger number of follicles.

  • Increases blood flow to the uterus and increases the thickness of the uterine lining.

  • Relaxation and stress reduction.

  • Prevents the uterus from contracting and therefore provides a better environment for the embryo to implant.

  • Improve sperm quality and motility.
