Since 2007 we have been using acupuncture and herbal medicine to help people in Portland build families. At Solstice Natural Health you will be treated with respect, kindness, and understanding as we create an individualized treatment plan to support your needs.

Natural Fertility Enhancement
This is for you if:
You are planning to try to get pregnant in the next 3-6 months.
You suspect that you have fertility issues, but do not want to take hormones.
You have been diagnosed with fertility issues, but are not ready to take hormones or go to a Reproductive Endocrinologist.
We don’t need you to wait a certain amount of time, or have a certain number of tests run to fit into this category. You know your body. and If you are worried that something is wrong, this treatment will help. You will receive a custom treatment plan that can include any of the following: acupuncture, herbs, supplements, and/or nutrition support. All of this is based years of clinical experience, and the latest in natural and western medical research.
We reassess often, and your treatment plan changes with your symptoms and/or changing levels of medical intervention.
I have worked closely with ORM, OHSU, as well as with other Portland-area private Reproductive Endocrinologists. I am familiar with all of their treatment protocols, and the Western medicine involved. Our work together will be cohesive, and co-treatment with Portland’s REs is something I am glad to provide. I can offer pre-IUI treatment as well as onsite pre- and post-IVF transfer treatment at facilities that allow it.
This is for you if:
You have already begun taking Clomid or Letrazole.
You have scheduled or are going to schedule an IUI.
You are going to start or have begun the IVF process.
You are using donor eggs for an IVF cycle.
You have had several failed IUI/IVF cycles.
No matter the diagnosis, we can support you through your IUI/IVF and/or medication cycles to give you better chances of conceiving and having a healthy pregnancy.

Miscarriage Support and Prevention
If you have gone through a loss, you deserve support, guidance, and understanding. Whether you are in acute phases of recovery, or in the stages of trying to conceive again — support is available at Solstice Natural Health. Your level of need guides our individualized treatment plans. We discuss your mental, physical, and emotional status, and make recommendations for your recovery based on this.
The resources we use depend on your needs, and on where you are in the grieving process. Our clinic is a safe space for you to discuss your loss, and to ask any questions about the implications of conceiving again.
Your treatment plan may include: nutrition advice, self-care, acupuncture, and possibly herbal medicine. We rely on our network of referrals when appropriate, with the goal of helping you heal physically and emotionally.
When you are ready to try to conceive again, our treatment plan changes to assist you through the process. That includes emotional support, but we also work to treat the root cause of the miscarriage (especially in the event that you have had 2 or more miscarriages), so that your next pregnancy will have the best chances of a positive outcome.
