The combined evidence of many researchers shows that childhood conditions such as breast-feeding difficulties, hyperactivity, type II diabetes, learning disabilities, speech issues, allergies, asthma, and skin disorders can be prevented.

A healthy body is a fertile body. We believe that it is every woman’s right to conceive naturally without the need for surgery, injections or drugs. Our aim is to enhance a woman’s fertility by bringing her lifestyle into balance.
Eggs are susceptible to damage for 3 months before ovulation and sperm development takes approximately 115 days. The health of each is important in the development of a healthy baby. During conception to 12 weeks gestation, the fetus’ mass increases over 2 ½ million times. From 12 weeks to full term the bably only increases a mere 230 times. By the time a woman realizes that she is pregnant and decides to modify her diet and lifestyle, many anomalies that are going to affect the fetus may already be present.
Our goal is to help men and women achieve a state of wellbeing at least 3 months in advance to trying to conceive.
Naturopathic medicine also has a valuable role in fertility support. The nature of the doctor/patient relationship allows for greater understanding of the patient’s struggle and impeding fertility factors. Natural therapies may provide less invasive alternatives for some individuals or complement conventional techniques and assisted reproductive technologies.
