Reproductive Health & Fertility
We use combinations of Natural therapies to balance and support Menstrual, Fertility and Menopausal issues

When dealing with Reproductive health and Fertility issues I use a combination of Natural therapies that have been shown over the years to be a wonderful combination; Homeopathy, Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine and other Herbal and Nutraceutical Medicines that assist in balancing aspects of health that impact Fertility and Reproductive health.
I can help in maximising the efficiency of the Reproductive tissues by strengthening and correcting the functioning of many systems, from hormone production to tissue response in the ovaries, uterus and testes particularly, but in all systems that impact. Healing and re-balancing of the system is not only possible, but is probable. In cases of unexplained infertility, I focus on the subtle abnormalities and imbalances that exist and very often not much correction is needed before a pregnancy is possible. Our body wants to fall pregnant, it’s the most natural thing in the world! With some self love and healing, many women fall pregnant within a few months or are ready to take the next assisted step if that is what is required for their journey.
I love helping people have their baby, so I happily offer supportive treatments like Acupuncture and natural healing support for all Assisted Reproductive Techniques, like IUI and IVF. There is no one way, but knowing what to do to optimise your chances is the best way to achieve your family.
Lifestyle and dietary modifications and stress relieving techniques, including other therapies are also be suggested in a holistic approach that has proven to be very effective in fertility over the past decade or so. Whether you’re trying to conceive naturally or need combination treatments for supporting an IVF or other assisted reproductive procedure, Natural Medicine can help.
Different Homeopaths will offer various combinations of therapies as most of us have not stopped learning at only Homeopathy, but are continuously learning from all the wisdom that is abundant through all traditions and cultures and advances in medicine and technology, so each may approach their treatments in their own unique way, unlike a conventional approach.
Your journey is unique and just like all health conditions, are treated with the same unique approach that is the hallmark of the Natural Way. Just know, that there is always something that can be done to help.
Menstrual Irregularities and Menopause
For those not concerned about fertility or who are way past that in life, the Reproductive System is often the most difficult and annoying system, impacting significantly on daily life. We are not cursed because Eve took a bite of the apple! We are not supposed to live with painful periods and terrible pms or mood swings and horrific hot flushes…no, we are not. All of these ‘symptoms’ are showing imbalances within the system and are certainly being influenced by other issues, mainly adrenals and the lasting effects of stress. Stress directly affects the production of our sex hormones and therefore is the most significant contributor to hormonal imbalance and menstrual and menopausal issues. Other factors influencing hormones are Insulin Resistance and Thyroid dysfunction, digestive issues and many more…the reproductive system is affected by the health of all other systems in your body, so healing it is an all round process.
The Fertility Journey
In the first consultation, the Homeopathic doctor will take your history, all health information, reproductive or otherwise is necessary for the doctor to correctly understand your condition & prescribe correctly. If any previous blood tests, scans or procedures have been done, please bring all the relevant information with you, so that we can correctly understand your case. Just because we use Natural Medicine does not mean we don’t use technology! so blood tests and scans are also utilised in order to correctly diagnose and treat each patient. Subsequent tests may be requested. Rest assured that Homeopathic doctors are well qualified in all aspects of medicine and are very thorough in investigations and treatments and will refer wherever required.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is also used in the diagnosis and understanding of the imbalances in each individual, so apart from the normal medical case history, other information may be required. The consultation will take between 1 –
Combinations of Natural medicines are prescribed according to the individual case. Homeopathic, Western Herbal, Chinese Herbal, some Auyvedic or Unani Tibb (traditional Indian) medicines could also be prescribed. Being on a good Multivitamin and Omega 3 & 6 supplement is essential, so often these vitamins and minerals are prescribed.
If blood tests reveal any other condition, such as high Insulin or imbalanced thyroid levels, other medications may be given to assist in the balancing and healing of all the systems, these play a major role in your body’s ability to conceive or make good quality eggs and sperm.
Medications and combinations thereof will change from time to time as they are used to heal and balance a particular aspect of the current state. Some medicines remain the same, but others may differ, especially the Chinese and Homeopathic ones. Don’t expect to be on the same protocol the whole way through.
Treatments are set for every 2 weeks, except in more severe cases (eg. Amenorrhoea –
No, it’s not sore! Most people are very pleasantly surprised after their first treatment and rather feel the amazing relaxation and fabulous night’s sleep that follows!
Acupuncture is an incredible form of treatment that assists in the correct functioning of the electromagnetic systems of our body that work in tandem with the physical and biochemical as one unit. When this energy flow is imbalanced then the physical system cannot be anything but imbalanced. There is much scientific evidence to explain the benefits of acupuncture in many conditions and its use specifically in FERTILITY is widespread. Acupuncture reconnects the electromagnetic communication between the reproductive tissues, the nervous and hormonal systems.
