"Imagine? Can you imagine a world where dis-ease is no longer a barrier to full human self-expression? That's the world I'm standing in. By targeting a mother's preconception health and pregnancy health, and working with babies age 0 - 2, along with continued care throughout childhood and adolescence, research shows that natural therapies including nutrition, supplements, and lifestyle can all decrease lifelong risk of all major diseases our society now faces.
I'm standing in a world where you get to experience the JOY of being a mother; and a world where every baby - including YOUR BABY - is born healthy, thriving, and vibrant. Together, we can make that happen." - Dr. Erica
Dr. Erica actively treats fertility, pregnancy, and pediatrics to enact her vision in the world. She also regularly appears in media, writes articles and blogs, and works as a health coach to spread her work globally. She also trains other NDs and health care providers in these areas, and actively donates to Operation Smile, a volunteer-based medical charity providing free cleft surgery for children. In her practice, she works to prevent cleft issues and other midline defects through appropriate pregnancy nutrition and supplementation that is often unavailable in third world countries.
Dr. Erica works with Fertility Patients from across the Greater Toronto Area, whether they are trying to get pregnant on their own or in conjunction with a Fertility Clinic. Within the past year, 69.6% of the patients Dr. Erica worked with got pregnant within 3 months, and many more went on to become pregnant within 6 months. Dr. Erica uses evidence-based treatment plans. A naturopathic fertility plan has been shown to increase rates of having a baby by 65%, and acupuncture protocols that work alongside Assisted Reproductive Techniques (ART) have been shown to increase the chance of having a baby by 42.5%. These statistics are very positive alongside the fact that ART is 9 - 43% effective at getting women pregnant - not necessarily getting them a baby - and depends on the technique being used. Many couples secure their investment in ART by working with Dr. Erica to increase rates of success, and the cost of working with an ND is far less than the cost of ART, making it an effective and worthy ART add-on, or standalone care.
