Pre-conception care

Don’t wait until you have a diagnosed medical condition, or the stress and difficulties of conceiving begin to affect your life. Let the Jacaranda Natural Health Centre help you to prepare your body with good health and balanced hormones at least four months prior to trying to conceive. There are no guarantees, but preparation may prevent a lot of stress and disappointment later on.

Many couples wait to feel settled and secure in their lives and careers before starting a family and this often means they are older when trying to conceive. It is vitally important to be prepared, informed and as healthy as you can be. Learn all about your hormones, the menstrual cycle and the best times to conceive.

Usually, both partners are present for the first consultation, which can take several hours. All herbal medicines and treatments are dispensed on an individual basis. Follow-up appointments are at three to eight week intervals.

It may be necessary for you to be referred to your GP for blood tests, scans or other diagnostic tests as part of the pre-conception care process.

Perimenopause, menopause and premenstrual syndrome

Premenstrual, perimenopause and menopausal symptoms often interfere with our lives on a daily basis. Even though these are usually natural experiences for most females, it does not mean you have to endure the uncomfortable side effects. Hot flushes, sleeplessness, premenstrual tension, mood swings, heavy, absent or painful menstruation are some of the many symptoms that can occur with hormone imbalances.

The initial consultation usually takes approximately one hour and follow-up consultations are at three to eight week intervals. Call the Jacaranda Natural Health Centre today to find out more about the herbal medicines available to you.

Adrenal fatigue and stress hormones

Don’t underestimate the effects stress hormones can have on the body. Anxiety, exhaustion, sadness and a lack of interest in your normal day-to-day life may be the result of an imbalance of stress hormones. This situation will not heal itself, but herbal remedies could help you to regain a sense of equilibrium and a feeling of good health.

At times, it may be necessary to seek assistance from your general practitioner, gynaecologist/obstetrician or other natural health practitioners to achieve good health, balanced emotions and, of course, the desired outcome you are seeking.
