Fertility Program

Screen shot 2014-08-20 at 1.27.23 PMAre you trying to conceive, and not sure why it is taking so long?  We can help.  If you’ve been having trouble conceiving for a while, you may not be ready to go down the traditional fertility clinic route yet or maybe you feel like the conventional system has failed you. With our Fertility Program, Dr. Jessica can often help you get pregnant with effective naturopathic fertility treatments that are a lot less expensive and risky than most conventional methods (such as IVF).

Dr. Jessica increases success rates by creating personalized treatment plans for each patient. The Fertility Program is designed  based on individual factors for each couple, which determines which treatment protocol options might be most appropriate for your personal situation.  Some treatments effectively used to enhance fertility include:

  • Supplementation of Vitamins, Minerals and Nutraceuticals
  • Acupuncture
  • Herbal Medicine
  • Nutrition and Lifestyle Counselling

Benefits of Acupuncture

Research shows that acupuncture is able to:

    • Improve pregnancy rates during in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment cycles
    • Improve the endometrial lining of the uterus by increasing blood flow to the pelvic organs
    • Balance stress-related hormones that can interfere with pregnancy
    • Improve ovulation rates for women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
    • Regulate the menstrual cycle
    • Improve mood, sleep and energy
    • increases the quality and quantity of sperm

These naturopathic treatments work to:

  • optimize egg and sperm quality
  • reduce inflammation
  • remove toxic burden
  • balance hormones
  • increase blood flow to the pelvis
  • minimize stress
  • increase implantation rates
  • optimizing nutritional status

Dr. Jessica recognizes the stress, emotional upset, and anxiety around trying to conceive, and works with her patients to develop the most optimal environment for implantation to occur and pregnancy to hold. She uses gentle natural approaches such as clinical nutrition, supplementation, herbs and acupuncture to reduce the stress around conceiving, optimize your health, balance hormones and prepare your body for conception so you have the best chance for a natural uncomplicated conception, pregnancy and delivery of your child.
