Dr. Fiona McCulloch established the White Lotus Naturopathic Fertility program back in 2001 and we have been helping patients to build their families with remarkable success ever since!
As Naturopathic Doctors, the White Lotus team is focused on evidence-based and root-cause fertility treatment and can support both natural fertility cycles as well as support and improve IVF success. Our team has extensive experience in the treatment of all underlying conditions that affect healthy fertility including PCOS, endometriosis, thyroid disorders, and many more. A full list of fertility related conditions we treat is listed below.
Fertility treatment at White Lotus is focused on improving follicle health, implantation rates, and restoring hormonal and emotional balance. The first step is a 2-hour initial appointment where your naturopathic doctor will carefully review your fertility goals and history, perform physical exams and recommend specialized lab work when indicated.
After carefully reviewing your case, your naturopathic doctor will prescribe individualized combinations of supplements along with a diet program and lifestyle suggestions to increase your ability to conceive. We recommend evidence-based nutrition, supplements and botanical medicines focused on:
- Protecting egg quality
- Improving circulation
- Improving implantation
- Regulating hormones
- Reducing clotting and inflammation
- Preventing miscarriage
- Improving success rates of IVF procedures (Our naturopathic doctors have extensive experience treating IVF patients and will never prescribe treatments that could interact with your protocol)
- Reducing stress
We also provide acupuncture, using research-driven protocols that have been proven to increase fertility by a substantial margin (40-60% increase in success rates for IVF cycles). Acupuncture helps you to feel completely relaxed while improving circulation to the pelvic organs and developing follicles as you go through natural cycles, or prepare for your IVF or IUI cycles.
What makes our fertility care unique?
We take a great deal of time analyzing your case. This detailed review often gives us answers as to why you are not able to get pregnant. As a result, we are able to uncover causes of unexplained infertility with a high success rate.
We can pinpoint previously undiagnosed imbalances.
We offer support throughout the entire fertility process, and whenever you have questions, we are here to answer them!
We work along with your fertility doctor – we’re always open to communicating and collaborating for your best care.
And finally, we offer insight and experience in naturopathic fertility care – we are highly specialized and have worked with hundreds of patients going through the fertility journey.
Fertility conditions that we treat include:
Egg quality and Timing
If your naturopath is working on your egg quality with supplements and/or acupuncture, it is important to know that your follicles go through a more than 90 day maturation process in the ovary.
It can take this period of time to achieve benefits on egg quality, though you may see improvements along the way. For other conditions, treatment time may vary so please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
