As a result of our vision, research and decades of experience we are pleased to offer a range of programs and methods for achieving optimal general and reproductive health - for all people, at all stages of life.
We encourage the practice of healthy lifestyles and diet and the primacy of natural remedies in resolving health issues. We will treat, monitor and support you through all health conditions but also believe in empowering individuals with knowledge for the self-management of their health in the long term.
We utilise various diagnostic tools alongside a detailed case history to prepare a comprehensive plan for addressing any issues and attaining optimal health. Treatments involve the use of natural medicines, detoxification, nutrition, stress management, allergy and infection control and lifestyle advice and are complemented by the diagnostic and therapeutic support of our in-house doctor, if required.
As detailed blow, our services include:
In addition to our fertility focus, we specialise in a range of reproductive health treatments for all areas of general and reproductive health.
Our practitioners have extensive experience in treating a range of conditions such as hormone imbalance, PCOS, endometriosis, fibroids, menstrual pain, irregular menstruation, PMS, thyroid or immune system problems and menopause management.
Although we are more than happy to treat men for any general health issues, our services are focused on the health of the male in terms of optimal fertility and the treatment of any existing reproductive issues.
Unlike conventional treatments for infertility, the role of the prospective father on the Conception Program requires the same involvement as the prospective mother. This is because the father provides at least 50% of the contribution to a health conception. This is the case even if you are unaware of any fertility problems.
Please refer to the Conception Program for further information, including infertility and serious health issues.
Giving birth is an empowering and transformative life event, and when the birth and bonding between mother and baby unfolds naturally, the positive effects for both are immeasurable. Post-natal health and successful lactation are well supported with natural therapies.
In Francesca Naish's books The Natural Way to Better Birth and Bonding and The Natural Way to Better Breastfeeding (co-authored with Janette Roberts) , she covers a treasure trove of practical information.
For personalised advice, treatment and remedies on any of the above topics, Francesca or any of our trained practitioners are happy to assist.
Many parents who have successfully progressed through the Conception Program and utilised our services during pregnancy and beyond go on to bring their children to our clinic, specifically to their own trusted practitioner.
Although children born from a healthy, planned conception generally have a greatly reduced rate of medical issues, there are always ways we can assist with the optimal health of your child. From advice on treatment for minor ailments, building immunity, diet, allergies and so on...
Our philosophy is one of lifelong health care. Ensuring your child is enjoying optimal health and addressing any issues early on in life will help create a strong, resilient, healthy constitution for their entire life and for the generations beyond.
Puberty is a time of profound change and a time celebrated in many cultures as a rite of passage into a new stage of life. But like all of life's major thresholds it can be a vulnerable time. Attitudes and events experienced around this time can impact negatively or positively on a girl's evolving sense of identity, body image and emotional health. For support at this important life stage you can:

Menopause is a normal, natural part of a women's life that is usually experienced in her mid-late 40s or early 50s. It is often a time of change both physically and psychologically where women either need or appreciate some form of assistance.
During peri-menopause (the onset of symptoms to the last menstrual period) and menopause, women can experience a range of symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, menstrual changes, breast tenderness, vaginal dryness, urinary frequency, joint aches, tiredness, anxiety, headaches, irritability, decreased libido, dry skin and depression.
Our practitioners have years of clinical experience supporting women through this time of change and challenge. We do not aim to 'treat' the 'problem' of menopause; instead we aim to ease the symptoms of this natural reproductive process through changes to nutrition and lifestyle and via the use of natural remedies.
Where conditions are more serious, we work in conjunction with our in-house doctor who specialises in reproductive health. Orthodox tests, diagnosis and medicine are used to complement the natural therapy approach and seek to address and heal any issues rather than overriding them.
Our integrative approach also includes in-house access and referrals to additional alternative health services such as acupuncture to provide holistic, comprehensive care.
