The natural therapeutic approach is intended to ensure that the constant effort of the body’s life force is always in the directions of self-cleansing, repair and positive health. Naturopathy promotes treatments based on a holistic approach, with concern for underlying causes, rather than healing only with the presenting symptoms.

With an increase number of couples and women requiring IVF, helping your body physically and emotionally may be supported through treatment by an experienced Naturopath.

Our Naturopath looks at the various factors contributing to infertility. Everyone’s response to such factors is different which may or may not affect fertility. It also cannot be ignored that those who are affected are often left without answers as to why trying to conceive has become so difficult, and why their body is not regulating or processing their hormones correctly.

Our Practitioners work closely with couples trying to conceive, and may combine Naturopathic Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine to tailor supplements to your cycle and history.

Sandra has been involved in IVF support for over 16 years and understands which supplements can be used during an IVF cycle.

Sandra suggests products that have TGA approved ingredients that have undergone clinical trials to show benefit and efficacy in relation to IVF improvement in egg and sperm quality, natural fertility and gynaecological conditions.
