BENEFIT: natural fertility care reduces need for IVF and other high cost fertility treatments.
Have you or someone you know struggled with infertility?
Infertility is on the rise, infertility rates being 1 in 7 people struggling with infertility. Naturopathic fertility focuses on supporting the bodies ability to heal, correcting imbalances and removing obstacles, rather than using only procedures or medications.
Fertility optimization’s goal is to have the healthiest baby possible, which starts before conception and continues after birth. I believe that the first 1000 days of life, starting at conception, are the most important for determining the long term health of the individual. Beginning optimizing the health of the parents at least 3 months (the time it takes for the egg and sperm to fully mature and develop) before conception along with support for the first 1000 days, from conception to infancy, will result in the healthiest child, and parents, possible. Because let’s be real, once that baby comes it’s a lot of long nights and trying times, so making sure you are as healthy as possible ahead of time will really help.
My philosophy and disclaimer: If you are your healthiest self you will have your best fertility potential. I can’t promise that you will become pregnant while working with me, or that it will always preserve your fertility long-term, or you won’t have a baby with health challenges, but I can promise that YOU will feel your best and your reproductive system will be it’s healthiest.

By timing sex or IUI with your ovulation you increase pregnancy rates.

Toxins in Our Environment and Fertility
If you are early in this process, not thinking of having a baby for several years, and on a reliable form of birth control then a real gift to yourself and your baby would be to do a DETOX. Toxins in the mother’s body can make it difficult to get pregnant, can be a factor in miscarriages, and are eventually passed to the baby.
An important principle in environmental medicine and detox is to stop, or limit, the exposures to harmful chemicals and toxic metals.
This means clean up your life!
The food you eat, the water you drink, the air you breathe, the home you live in, the things you put onto your body, the thoughts you think (not environmental but still very toxic), all affect you.
