Nu-Leaf - Fertility Treatments



Natural Fertility care provides you, your partner and children, with holistic, effective and safe solutions for all reproductive health needs throughout life including: puberty, contraception care, preconception health, treatment for fertility problems, pregnancy healthcare through to birth and breastfeeding.

We provide you with an integrated approach to modern health care, combining the very best of natural therapies to successfully address yours, and your family's, reproductive healthcare needs - at every stage of your life.

Statistics worth considering:

  • 1 couple in 6 is infertile
  • 1 woman in 5 will miscarry
  • 1 women in 10 suffers from toxaemia or high blood pressure
  • 1 baby in 10 is born prematurely or small for dates
  • 1 baby in 30 is born with congenital defects
  • 1 in every 3 women suffer from some degree of post natal depression
  • More than 1 child in 10 is affected by a learning or behavioural problem
  • 1 child in 5 suffers from asthma

However, medical research has revealed that all these conditions are frequently preventable with preconception health care. Ideally preconception care should begin 3-4 months prior to conception to ensure the health of your sperm and eggs is optimal. As eggs and sperm take approximately 3 - 4 months to generate and mature.

Preconception care involves finding and taking care of any problems that might affect you and your baby later, like hypoglycaemia, nutritional deficiencies or high blood pressure. It also involves steps you can take to reduce the risk of birth defects and other problems. One common example is that you should take folic acid supplements to prevent neural tube defects.

By taking action on health issues before pregnancy, you can prevent many future problems for yourself and your baby, and we all know prevention is better than the cure. Once you're pregnant, youll get prenatal care until your baby is born.

Why Come & See Us?

Because safety is our priority

Natural Fertility care provides you, your partner and children, with holistic, effective and safe solutions for all reproductive health needs throughout life including: puberty, contraception care, preconception health, treatment for fertility problems, pregnancy healthcare through to birth and breastfeeding.

We provide you with an integrated approach to modern health care, combining the very best of natural therapies to successfully address yours, and your family's, reproductive healthcare needs - at every stage of your life.



What Do We Do?

Understanding your reproductive system is an important part of knowing how to prevent or increase your chances of pregnancy. While most women know the basics, many dont realise that there is more to your reproductive system than just your period.

A woman is fertile only for a few days during each menstrual cycle.

If you have intercourse just one day after you ovulate your chance of falling pregnant is just 9%. Nu-Leaf can teach you simple tools to determine when you are about to ovulate and increase your chance of conceiving.



Why do I have to wait 4 months before trying to conceive?

To ensure the health of your sperm and eggs is optimal before conception. As eggs and sperm take approximately 3 - 4 months to generate and mature, the full advantages of preconception health care can not be experienced if conception occurs before this time.

If there are additional risk factors such as increased age, or previous history of problems, or the use of assisted reproductive technology, it is even more important to complete your preconception health care before conception. The four month time period is a general, minimum guideline.

Occasionally a longer time is required if there are particular health issues which need to have the chance to fully respond to treatment.



Can natural therapies help if we have a serious problem?
Low sperm count:

      Responds very well to natural treatments and nutrients.



Low % of motile sperm:

      Causes are identified and addressed. In most cases, responds very well to natural treatments.



Poor sperm morphology:

      Reasons are sought and resolved. Sperm morphology is frequently improved during the course of the program.



Irregular cycles:

      Responds very well to natural treatments.



Hostile mucus:

      The underlying immune, nutritional and hormonal imbalances are addressed and the problem can usually be resolved.



Sperm antibodies:

      Investigations are made into the type. Response varies depending on the type and amount. Generally very successful, when occurring in the female.



Endometriosis:

      Depends on severity, however generally a successful long term treatment and often used in conjunction with surgery.



Ovarian cyst:

      Depends on the type, many spontaneously resolve although some require surgery. Natural treatments are conducive to resolution.



PCOS:

      Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome responds well to nutritional and herbal medicine.



Fibroids:

      May not be a barrier to conception, depending on position and size, although the underlying hormonal issues are considered and addressed. Surgery may be necessary in some cases.



PID:

      Pelvic Inflammatory Disease causative agents identified and treated during the initial stages of the program.



Both tubes blocked:

      A serious challenge to natural fertility treatment, although mild tubal damage can often be addressed successfully. In more severe cases, the program is offered as a complement to reproductive technology.



Candida/thrush:

      Responds well to natural treatment.



Stress:

      Different techniques are used to reduce the inevitable stress of infertility.



Miscarriage:

    Identification of risk factors is undertaken, including additional pathology tests where miscarriage is recurrent. Preconception health care can successfully address most causes, and rates are greatly reduced.

 



Menstrual Problems

Menstrual problems can include any of the below symptoms:

  • Bloating
  • Breast tenderness
  • Skin problems
  • Headaches
  • Food cravings
  • Mood swings
  • Fatigue

The focus of your treatment will ensure that any hormonal imbalances are gently, yet powerfully, resolved - eliminating the PMS that so many of us consider as normal.

Further support is provided through dietary recommendations, and supplementation of various key nutrients when needed. Necessary adjustments to lifestyle choices also contribute to lasting results, including managing stress effectively, exercise, and emotional health and wellbeing.



Endometriosis

The cause of up to 80% of pelvic pain.

Endometriosis is the presence of functioning endometrial tissue in an abnormal location. Fragments of the endometrial tissue continue to respond to hormones causing pain, heavy bleeding, constipation and/or painful intercourse. It is the most common cause of infertility in women over 25 years.

Dietary and lifestyle changes are essential for successful treatment and for maintenance of the condition long term to prevent reoccurrences. Herbal medicines and nutritional supplements are individually prescribed to rebalance hormones, reduce pain and restore normal menstrual flow and improve fertility.



Testimonial

It seemed only natural to seek Nu-leafs advice when my husband and I were trying for 3 years to fall pregnant. We already have two young boys and one more felt right.

Neither our obstetrician nor GP could offer any further advice once the initial tests showed everything was okay. We were advised to keep trying and it would happen eventually. Our concern, was that we were able to conceive but not able to maintain the pregnancy much further than a week to four weeks. After 3 miscarriages, I finally contacted Nu-Leaf. After taking on their advice we fell pregnant within 3 months, and I am currently 34 weeks pregnant with all scans and tests revealing we are all fine, healthy and normal. I can't tell you how elated we are, when all felt at a loss, Nu-Leaf was still there to offer more advice, knowledge and thoughts that no one could and it always has great results. It is a worthwhile journey to discover your inner health and to reap the benefits that will follow.
