Evidence Based Natural Treatment for Infertility

The Alana Natural Fertility program is a holistic, comprehensive service where on-site medical diagnosis is combined with evidence-based natural treatments in a systematic approach, tailored to individual reproductive and health needs of women and men. Aiming to maximise preconception health, pregnancy is achieved by improving ovarian function, reducing stress, normalising hormones and immune function, and improving the quantity and quality of sperm.

Alana Natural Fertility

There is growing scientific evidence showing that optimising the health of both women and men prior to pregnancy can improve fertility, the health of babies and even determine lifelong health. The Alana Natural Fertility program is a proactive approach that can be used to prepare for pregnancy and as treatment for infertility. An inclusive approach incorporates female and male reproductive systems, general health and well being and environmental factors. Treatment for a wide range of fertility problems include unexplained infertility, low sperm count, motility morphology and DNA integrity, hormone imbalances, immune complications (antibodies, infections and inflammation), sexual issues, timing, poor implantation and growth of an embryo.

Your experienced and highly trained Alana Naturopath is knowledgeable, accessible and understanding. You control your lifestyle with information about the areas of most effectiveness for your individual situation.
