An initial consultation is given to review your complete medical history, taking into account lifestyle, general medical history, western medical test results, menstrual patterns, body basal temperature, nutritional, structural and emotional health. Where necessary we can arrange for blood tests and semen analysis; hair analysis to check for toxic metals; stool tests to assess intestinal health; or referral to a gynaecologist or male infertility specialist.
On the basis of the medical history and test results, we are able to establish the appropriate treatment for you. Comprehensive preconceptual advice is given accordingly, and a unique treatment programme can be drawn up to address each patient’s individual needs.
At Conceive, acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and nutritional therapy form the core of much of the treatment for infertility and gynaecological conditions. To those seeking a purely natural approach, they can be used alone; but equally they can be used to great effect in combination with western medical procedures.
Where there is an emotional aspect to the condition, counselling or hypnotherapy might be used, or, in the case of problems of structural origin, cranial osteopathy might be appropriate.
