Reproductive Disorders

A reproductive system disorder is a generic term that refers to conditions that affect the organs of the reproductive system. This includes all inherited or acquired diseases, abnormal functioning of the glands related to secretion of sex hormones, infections and other disorders arising from known/unknown causes (for example thyroid dysfunction).

Examples of female reproductive disorders includes poly cystic ovaries (PCO), polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, uterine fibroids, Chlamydia infection, cervical mucous irregularities (lack of fertile mucous),  irregular menstrual cycle (more than 35 days or less than 21 days), absence of menstruation (amenorrhea), absence of ovulation (anovulation), painful menstruation (dysmenorrhea) and/or heavy menstruation (menorrhagia). Complications of menstrual irregularities can include difficulty falling pregnant, anaemia and infertility.

Examples of male reproductive disorders include poor sperm parameters (morphology, mobility and quantity), decreased libido and erectile dysfunction.

Naturopathic treatment of female and male reproductive disorders is tailored to the individual case, the underlying cause, the severity of symptoms, and the presence of any complications.

Natural Fertility Support

Sometimes, a little assistance is needed to achieve the dream of having a baby.
To couples who are having problems conceiving, it can feel like failure, and seem that they're alone in experiencing difficulties in falling pregnant. The reality is, however, that this happens much more often than people realise. At some point in their lives, at least 1 in 6 couples in Australia will experience some degree of infertility. Statistics demonstrate that 40% are due to male factors, 40% to female factors, 10% are due to factors for both partners and 10% is due to unknown causes (unexplained fertility).

Supportive naturopathic treatments can assist couples to improve their own health and influence their genetic material so that they provide their future children with the best possible start in life.  In addition, individualised treatment protocols work to:

  • Manage specific reproductive health disorders such as PCOS, endometriosis, fibroids, irregular menstruation, anovulation, dysmenorrhea and recurrent miscarriage
  • Address the diagnoses of ‘unexplained infertility’ by assessing overall health and treating any areas of suboptimal health
  • Address general systemic health issues such as weight management (obesity can reduce fertility and increase the risk of miscarriage), metabolic issues, auto-immunity and thyroid disorders
  • Treat nutritional deficiencies critical for a successful pregnancy, such as zinc, iron, iodine and essential fatty acids
  • Prepare the uterus for pregnancy by  employing the use of specific uterine tonics

A natural fertility program offers the couple the prospect of a healthy, natural conception; an easy pregnancy and labour and most importantly a healthy and happy baby. 

Preconception Support

There are numerous studies indicating that nutritional deficiencies, environmental toxins, illnesses and other factors can influence the health of a woman’s egg (up to a minimum of 100 days prior to ovulation) and a male’s sperm (sperm takes an average of 75 days to develop). Therefore, a couple’s health prior to conception can significantly influence pregnancy outcomes and ensure the best genetic information is passed onto their child.

It is understandable that you want to be pregnant yesterday!!! However, there is evidence that the 3 month preconception period is significant not only in a couple being able to achieve conception but also for a healthy pregnancy.

Preconception protocols can include herbal medicine, nutritional medicine (dietary and supplemental if required), environmental and lifestyle modifications.

Assisted reproductive technologies (ART)

Some couples require assistance with ART to help them conceive their much desired child. Often this is due to medical conditions that interfere with the conception process, such as fallopian tube blockages or where sperm is required to be retrieved by biopsy.
Naturopathic support works well with couples who require IVF or other ART procedures, and you will be monitored carefully to ensure that there are no contraindications or drug/herb interactions (for example herbal remedies that can affect female hormones are NOT recommended whilst undergoing ART).

Recent research demonstrated that concurrent naturopathic treatment during IVF more than doubles conception success rates. Naturopathic treatment can assist with increasing your energy and vitality, attain a healthy weight and assist minimise any adverse effects from IVF treatment, including drug side effects, sleep disturbances, increased stress, fatigue and mood changes.

Herbal Medicine

Medicinal herbal remedies are derived from plants and plant extracts to treat disorders and maintain optimum health. Medicinal herbs are blended by a qualified practitioner to meet the individual requirements of each patient.

The herbal medicines I use with my clients are of the highest quality and administered using evidence based practice.

Nutritional Medicine

A variety of diagnostic tests can be recommended/employed to ensure accurate diagnosis and management of your nutrient status. My aim is to ensure you have all the nutrition necessary to perform at your best, to be symptom free and to feel great.

Where the diet does not provide enough specific nutrition, where lifestyle factors deplete nutrients rapidly, or where specific health complaints call for an increased demand of nutrients, supplementation can be used.

Lifestyle Advice
Detailed advice around how you can apply some convenient changes in regard to food, leisure and work, to bring relief to your health complaint and improve your health. Advice is always receptive to the restrictions of your lifestyle and can be as simple or as detailed as required.
