NATURAL FERTILITY PROGRAM

We have developed this comprehensive program after years of working with women and men like you. Every aspect of your reproductive health is addressed to optimize your natural fertility. We generally recommend that both partners are treated when fertility issues are present.

Pre-conception preparation:

The ideal situation is to prepare yourself for having a baby.  The quality of the egg and sperm at the time of conception and the health of your body during pregnancy is directly related to the health of your future baby.

We recommend 3 months of treatment for detoxification, regulating your menstruation, and strengthening your body.

Frequency of visits:  One visit per month is necessary for acupuncture and prescription revision. If possible a second acupuncture session per month is recommended.   A normal prescription ranges from $50-$125 per month.

Natural Conception:

Enhance your health and fertility to promote a natural conception with a combination of acupuncture, Total Body Analysis, Biotherapeutic drainage remedies, Chinese herbs, nutritional guidance and supplements, reflexology, and CranioSacral Therapy. Treatment is tailored to your specific situation. Treatment plans usually span 4-6 months. Frequency of visits:  One visit per month is necessary for acupuncture and prescription revision. If possible a second acupuncture session per month is recommended.   A normal prescription ranges from $50-$125 per month.

Assisted Reproductive Technologies:

Acupuncture has been proven to increase blood flow to the reproductive organs, reduce the amount of medication needed, and increase pregnancy rates when used in conjunction with IVF.

Frequency of visits: Acupuncture visits are recommended every 1-2 weeks to support medical fertility treatment. Two sessions during the stimulation phase and one session close to the transfer is recommended for IVF cycles

“The patient benefits greatly… This is the conclusion that I have arrived at after years of collaborating with Brooke. The patient who is doing medical fertility treatment feels that they are doing everything they can and the degree of satisfaction with the process is much greater. Brooke is a skilled professional, and working as a team has improved the quality of our work, and I recommend Brooke without any doubt.”

THERAPIES USED IN FERTILITY TREATMENT:

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a fundamental aspect of treatment. Very thin, sterile, disposable needles are placed in points on the body. You will relax deeply while you rest with the needles in for 25-30 minutes. Acupuncture is used to support hormone balance, improve circulation to the reproductive system and help to reduce the effects of stress.

Total Body Analysis

This is one of the main tools to help determine your treatment plan. The system consists of over 1000 vials imprinted with the different frequencies of the parts of the body and the frequencies of things that cause dysfunction. Using muscle testing it is possible to have a deeper under-standing of what the body needs and allows Brooke to make individualized remedies or acts as a guide to find the most effective natural products for your body.

Biotherapeutic Drainage

This therapy uses products made from substances of the plant, mineral, and animal kingdom that are specially prepared to cleanse the body on an intra-cellular level. This is the deepest form of detoxification. Remedies prepared by the Total Body Analysis system also have this effect.

Chinese Herbology

Chinese Herbal Medicine has been used for almost 2000 years to support reproductive health. Chinese herbs are used to support hormone production and balance. They are some of the most nourishing substances known and can help blood production and to improve egg and sperm quality. If appropriate, custom herbal formulas will be designed to support your individual needs.

Moxibustion

Moxibustion is a technique that uses heat and light produced from burning a Chinese herb near or on specific acupuncture points. This technique is used to:

– move energetic blockages;
- enhance immune function;
- increase blood and lymphatic circulation;
- increase blood production;
- warm the uterus;
- increase the energy of the body.

Nutritional Supplementation

Focus is placed on eating a whole food, nutritionally rich diet. Using the Total Body Analysis it is possible to check if it is necessary to add specific nutrient supplements to support any deficiencies. Certain vitamins, minerals, and amino acids have more importance to reproductive health and will be evaluated.

CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy was developed in the U.S. by osteopath William G. Sutherland. The technique uses very gentle touch to release restrictions in the membranes that surround and penetrate the brain and spinal cord, as well as the connective tissue through the body. In fertility treatments this therapy helps to improve the function of the endocrine glands that reside within the brain. It also releases tension in the pelvis to improve circulation to the ovaries and assist in the proper positioning of the uterus.

Reflexology

Reflexology aims to rebalance the body’s systems by applying focused pressure on specific points or reflexes on the feet. Reflexology is deeply relaxing and can help to improve circulation to the reproductive organs and balance hormones.

Aromatherapy

Essential oils are often used during acupuncture sessions to help deepen relaxation and support emotional well-being. Essential oils have the ability to work on the emotional level helping to release trauma and general stresses of daily living.

Flower Essences Flower essences are vibrational in nature and are scentless. They work deeply to resolve many types of emotional and mental stress.  They are made from spring water infused with wild flowers, either by the sun-steeped method or by boiling.  They gently restore the balance between mind and body and can help to reverse the effects of stress on the body as well as help be at peace with your current situation.

“At 32 years I became a mother without any problems. I had a precious daughter that filled our lives with a very special light. Several years later I felt that my daughter needed a sibling. I thought that it would be easy, but in the end it turned out to be the most difficult and heartbreaking experience of my life. After 5 miscarriages, 5 babies who go to the land of babies that are never born (as we explained to my daughter), 5 losses, 5 failures, I was about to give up and accept that it was not meant to be. It was at this point an angel came into my life. I was recommended to Brooke and her natural fertility program. I was a good student and I changed many of my dietary habits. Many of my favorite things turned out to be the most damaging. I took all of the vitamins and the Chinese herbs…and our first attempt I became pregnant with my son who is only 15 days old. He looks at me saying ‘Look mom, I am finally here!’ I am eternally grateful.”
