Fertility Discovery and Diagnosis Session.
At Shift our approach to fertility is holistic and thorough. We understand that there are many aspects to address and the more that we can bring the body back into balance the higher the chance of a successful outcome.
We’ve helped thousands of couples conceive and birth beautiful babies. Will you be next?
Reproductive health doesn’t only occur in the ovaries and testes. When your health is poor, reproductive function is one of the first things that can decline.
While balancing your hormones and improving egg and sperm quality is a big part of treatment, we also will address your general health picture to see what you need this most.
Navigating your fertility journey can feel complicated, but we are here to hold your hand every step of the way.
What is my current fertility status from a naturopathic perspective?
Where is my general health at right now?
What can I do to improve?
You don’t know if you’re doing the right things or not. You want to make sure you’re getting what you need to conceive a healthy baby.
The Discovery and Diagnosis session remedies helps to give you clarity and guidance to make the right choices for your fertility and your health. It’s time to discover what these health issues mean for YOU.
At this point you may not have seen a naturopath before, or at least not a Shift naturopath, so let’s break down how it works.
Our Shift Naturopaths look at your whole body. Where you might see your doctor and they look at each issue individually, we want to know about all of the parts of you so we can see how things are connected. So many factors outside of your reproductive system can impact fertility and we want to address them all.
One we understand the landscape of your entire health, we can then use our expertise to prescribe you the right medicines to make the shift.
It might help to give you an example of how this works using a client case study. Mel and John came to see us at Shift after 4 miscarriages. They had had 3 rounds of IVF and although they ended up with several fertilised eggs, not many would make it through to the blastocyst stage and the few that did resulted in no pregnancy, or early miscarriages.
By the time Mel and John came to see us they were 35 and 36 years old, and had been trying to have a baby for over four years. We recommended that Mel and John take a break from IVF to focus on their health, heal the emotional scarring the process had given them and work on bringing their health into balance.
We conducted some testing and found that both Mel and John had some DNA issues, and that nutrient levels were not optimal. Mel and John took herbal medicines to correct issues in their bodies and several high quality nutritional supplements to work on sperm and egg quality. They shifted their diet and began to incorporate healthier foods into their diets. They also had several sessions with our hypnotherapist and counsellor to deal with the grief of the miscarriages and to work on their relationship and mindset around their fertility.
After 7 months of working with Mel and John, their energy was better, they had both lost a signifiant amount of weight and Mels previously erratic cycles were beginning to regulate. John also noticed his bloating and constipation has gone away, and that he wasn’t feeling exhausted at the end of the day anymore.
They decided they were ready to jump back into IVF and had booked the next cycle. Mel was due to start her treatment when she got her period however her period did not come. Mel and John were pregnant. Thankfully, this little bean made it to 39 weeks where they gave birth to their beautiful baby girl.
We spend about 40-60 minutes in the diagnostic stage, helping you to understand what is happening and why.
This is the first step to a successful treatment.
You'll each walk away with a prescription of specific high quality supplements and herbs you need in order to heal and enhance your fertility.
If you're virtual we post or help you source what you need locally.
You'll both get initial prescriptive dietary advice to help you begin to make the shift. We use food as medicine and functional nutrition. We'll send you links and handouts to help you with making changes.
