Nutritional, herbal and supplement guidance for optimal fertility health
What is fertility naturopathy?
At Shift at Brisbane Natural Fertility, we’ve been helping humans get pregnant for over 14 years. To us, natural fertility care is about so much more than getting acupuncture or taking herbs. It’s about you reconnecting with yourself, with each other (for couples) and tuning back in to what you really need.
Healthy babies are made from healthy parents, so our primary aim is to uncover anything that could put you or your partner out of balance and help you thrive.
We specialise in helping both men and women have enhanced fertility, better IVF outcomes and healthier babies.
At Brisbane Natural Fertility we pride ourselves on offering the very best level of service and expertise. We offer comprehensive and supportive natural fertility care to couples with all kinds of issues, ranging from women’s health issues like PCOS and endometriosis, autoimmune conditions, to male fertility issues such as low sperm count (read more here) and unexplained infertility. We also work on an integrative basis with couples undergoing IVF, where we can work to improve the success rates of the IVF cycle.
What and who we treat
We treat traditional couples as well as those from the LGBT community, and single parents also. We recognise that there are many types of family dynamics, as well as many pathways to conception. We work with couples undergoing Assisted Reproductive Techniques like IVF as well as those that are conceiving naturally alongside natural fertility treatments.
Patients come to see us for all kinds of issues – from infertility, PCOS and endometriosis to those wanting to simply give their baby the best possible start through good nutrition and health of the mother and father. We help couples who are looking for IVF alternatives as well as those who need IVF support. We also offer pregnancy care and specialise in the treatment of young babies.
How naturopathy works to support fertility
Our naturopath’s holistic, natural approach focuses on preventative care using modern science and proven natural solutions. We look after the whole of you, guiding you through your fertility journey and helping you take your health back into your own hands using natural medicine. Natural medicine can assist you to correct hormonal imbalances and nutritional deficiencies, optimise egg and sperm health, reduce the affects of stress, and detox from lifestyle or environment factors. This preconception care is extremely important to optimise your hormonal health, improve fertility and get you closer to holding your healthy baby.
Types of Fertility Naturopathy Treatment
Herbs and Supplements
Utilising centuries of traditional knowledge that is backed by modern research, naturopaths prescribe specific herbal medicine and supplements to address underlying fertility issues, balance hormones, enhance reproductive function for both men and women, and create an optimal environment for pregnancy. We have a beautiful in house dispensary filled with high grade quality herbs and supplements, scientifically proven to enhance fertility rates.
Our naturopaths and nutritionists will guide you towards a healthy and balanced diet to enhance your fertility. The food you eat serves as the building blocks for your body, providing the essential nutrients and energy required for improving fertility and overall reproductive health. By focusing on a fertility focused diet, you can nourish your body, support hormonal balance, enhance egg and sperm quality, and create an optimal environment for conception.
Diagnostic tools and testing
On your first visit, your naturopath will take a journey through your full health history to look for the cause of your problems. Our experienced naturopaths will use their diagnostic tools and wealth of knowledge to find the underlying cause of your fertility issues. Where necessary they will refer you for pathology testing to get a deeper understanding of what is going on for you. If you already have had any testing done in the past 2 years, please bring this with you for assessment.
