Preconception Medicine

Overview

If you wish to become pregnant there are a number of steps that you can take to improve the chances of a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. We can run tests to exclude any deficiencies nutritionally, specifically vitamins and minerals. We can also exclude any harmful toxins you may have in your body and what toxic substances you should avoid.

Pre-Eclampsia

If by chance during your prenatal days you develop pre-eclampsia (rising blood pressure and protein leakage in the urine), there are remedial ways to ward off this condition. During your visit we will discuss these.

Management Plan

The Wellness Clinic can also advise you what dietary habits are good for the baby - factors that increase the chances of a higher IQ, less learning difficulties and a decreased risk of Attention Deficit Disorder (A.D.D.). Included in our discussion will be what toxic factors needed to be excluded, and what social habits you should follow to increase the chances of a successful pregnancy. Just as important, instructions on what habits you should avoid decreasing the possibilities of harming the infant will be given.

Overall, Dr. Allibone is a specialist at creating individualized health plans so that it is tailored to each patient creating the best long-term health for both baby and mother.

If we fill our hours with regrets of yesterday and with worries of tomorrow, we have no today in which to enjoy our existence. Seize the day, and take control of your health and life. How you are going to live those tomorrows will depend on how you act and choose today. - George Allibone M.D.
