Perth Fertility Naturopath Uses Integrative Medicine to Help Couples Fall Pregnant

Perth, Western Australia – WEBWIRE

PERTH Australia, August 2014 – The number of young women having a child in their teens is steadily decreasing, while the amount of females conceiving over the age of 40 continues to grow, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.* With women waiting longer to have children, the rates of infertility increase, and mature couples struggling to fall pregnant are seeking natural remedies, like integrative medicine to support their desire to have a family, while others turn to conventional medicine like IVF.

But age isn’t the only factor that can change a couple’s ability to have children. Health problems and hormonal changes, weight, diet, stress, and smoking and alcohol consumption can also have an impact.** To manage infertility, a study conducted by the University of Surrey in 1995 suggested couples using a multimodality approach were more likely to dramatically increase their chances of conceiving. The Foresight study found that of the 380 couples assessed, 81 per cent that were previously considered infertile gave birth to a healthy baby after using a multimodality approach.

Fertility naturopath and medical herbalist Shannon Burford, has had a lot of success working with couples struggling to fall pregnant through his naturopathy centre, Cura Natural Medicine. “For couples having difficulty falling pregnant, I use a combination of herbs and nutritionals to support stress levels, thyroid, and hormones, and they usually become pregnant in three to six months,” says medical herbalist Shannon.

“A woman experiences significant phases of hormonal change from adolescence, through pregnancy and motherhood, and into menopause and older age. These changes influence not only her menstrual cycle, but her general health as well and may herald changes in nutritional needs, physical ability, and susceptibility to illness or disease. A balanced, well functioning hormonal system ensures optimal health in a woman.”

Cura Integrative Medicine works with a wide range of women’s health issues with integrative medicine, including allergies, stress-related conditions, digestive issues, auto-immune conditions, lowered immunity, skin complaints and fatigue. Shannon addresses specific issues to achieve optimum health, to create hormonal balance and improve fertility.

Fertility naturopath Shannon says, “By incorporating herbal medicine, nutritional support, dietary improvements, lifestyle modifications and pathology assessment, a couple can drastically improve their chance of conceiving a healthy, happy baby. A diverse range of couples can benefit from a naturopathic approach to fertility management.”

Cura Integrative Medicine client, Renee - whose fertility treatment took a little longer at 9 months with integrative medicine - says, “I am 4 months pregnant and things are going great! I want to thank you [Shannon] for helping me to heal my body so that I could actually become pregnant. I couldn’t have done it without your expert guidance and support.”
