Iva Keene, a qualified, accredited and internationally recognized doctor of naturopathic medicine, and a specialist in natural fertility, will be visiting Kuwait in the month of May. Based in Switzerland, the award winning author and speaker has helped thousands of couples with fertility problems on their path to pregnancy.
Keene is a compassionate and highly ethical practitioner and a strong advocate of natural fertility education. We talked to the doctor about her work to get to know more about the concept of natural fertility.
As a teenager I was fascinated by the monthly cycles and started reading up about natural fertility, how to prevent PMS and period cramps. Later when I started working as a clinician I saw a lot of women with PCOS, endometriosis and irregular cycles as well as those who were after natural contraception and those who could not get pregnant. This led me to deepen my knowledge and specialize in the area of natural fertility. In addition to natural fertility and natural medicine, I also received a Masters degree in Reproductive Medicine from the University of New South Wales in Australia.
What can you tell us about The Natural Fertility Prescription?
The Natural Fertility Prescription (NFP) is a four month home-study course that teaches infertile couples how they can take control of their own fertility and dramatically improve their odds of conceiving using safe approaches that have proven effective.
What is the success rate?
This method is shown to reverse infertility in over 80% of infertile couples and nearly double the IVF success rate from 25% to 47.1%. The NFP method successfully addresses the most common fertility conditions including: polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis, sperm abnormalities, luteal phase defect, repeated miscarriages, unexplained infertility, secondary infertility, age related infertility (providing the female has some ovarian reserve), mild forms of blocked fallopian tubes, fibroids and adhesions.
Is the Natural Fertility Prescription recognized worldwide?
NFP is endorsed by leading medical doctors, fertility specialists and complementary medical practitioners and is recommended and endorsed by Foresight, the international pioneer for preconception care in the UK.
What made you visit Kuwait?
A dear client of mine from Kuwait used my online pregnancy program and the fertility analysis service back in 2009/2010 and got pregnant after following it. She thought her friends and other Kuwaitis could benefit from my program and services and has kindly arranged for me to visit Kuwait in 2011. This will now be the third year in the row for me to visit Kuwait and enjoy the incredible hospitality and food!
