Hormones & Fertility

Amoung the most common conditions that I see in clinical practice are female hormonal imbalance and infertility.  Natural Medicine comes into it's own for the treatment of hormonal conditions which affect the quality of life of the modern female.  Female hormonal imbalance causes symptoms and conditions such as:

  • Symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes (flushes)

  • Pre menstrual tension

  • Pre menstrual dysphoric dysorder

  • Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome

  • Endometriosis

  • Uterine Fibroids

  • Painful periods

  • Prolonged bleeding time

  • Short menstrual cycle

  • Long menstrual cycle

  • Irregular periods

  • Heavy periods

  • Low libido and sexual discomfort

  • Excessive libido

  • Hirsuitism (abnormal hair growth)

  • Infertility

  • Thyroid dysfunction

Oestrogen dominance and progesterone deficiency are 2 of the most common hormonal imbalances that I see and treat. The interplay of these hormones in menstrual harmony and a healthy body weight, can't be understated. Herbal and nuritional medicine can improve the levels and metabolism of these 2 key female hormones and improve the quality of your life and functioning of your reproductive system.  


Herbal and nutritional medicine can also help to improve the metabolism of different hormones and increase hormonal precursors and functioning of our reproductive system, to improve symptoms of hormonal imbalance and improve the quality of your life.

Fertility & Preconception Care

Research supports the use of certain vitamins and minerals aid in the growing of a healthy baby.  It has been well established that folate is important for the growth of a foetus.  There are many other vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients which can benefit your health and the health of your unborn child.  

Research is now showing that the health of the parents prior to conception, can affect pregnancy outcomes, epigenetic changes in the infant and fertility.  

A sound preconception care plan and detoxification protocol, can give your new bundle of joy the best start in life.  It is best to start this process at least 3 to 4 months prior to trying for a baby, as it takes the imature ova this amount of time to mature and before it is released for fertilisation in the uterus.  We want to ensure, that that ova has had the very best nutritional support, and been exposed to low levels of inflammation and toxicity during the maturation process, to ensure the best quality genetic material in the egg.

It is vitally important for the prospective father to also get involved.  Natural medicine can help with sperm numbers, function, mobility and genetic stability.
