I help women optimize their health throughout the different phases of their life from preconception, fertility to post partum care and then during perimenopause & menopause. As women, we are defined by our hormonal fluctuations and unique needs during the different phases of our life. I work with my clients to help them achieve optimal hormonal balance by addressing the underlying foundation.
- Dr. Singh, ND
Many Naturopathic doctors have their own health story of what led them to Naturopathic medicine. I am no different. My journey started at 19 years old when I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis (UC). UC is a debilitating chronic inflammatory bowel disease with symptoms of severe pain and cramping, chronic diarrhea, bleeding, severe anemia, and fatigue. I was immediately put on steroids to control the bleeding and pain and was also given medications to help suppress the inflammation and pain. I was told that I would have to take these medications for the rest of my life.
I was also told that I would likely get cancer sometime in my 30's.... yes, they really did tell a 19 yo that. I was so afraid and took the medications as I was told. I was ok for a while but I continued to have "flare-ups" which were managed with more medications. Soon, I started suffering from side effects from the medications so I was given even more medications to try to control the side effects. I was on a 'roller coaster' ride of medications and side effects and it was not a fun ride to be on! I felt awful. No one was trying to help me understand how I got this disease in the first place and what I could do about it.
I luckily had the opportunity to move overseas and while there I met with a "Naturopathic Doctor" who helped me understand that I could feel better and get well by using natural medicines and changing my diet. I followed his advice and after about 8 weeks I was a different person! I was able to stop my prescription medications and was so happy when all the side effects I was suffering from disappeared!
This experience empowered me so much that after I moved back to the US I knew I had to help others understand how natural medicine could help them reverse their disease process by addressing the underlying cause and not just rely on prescription medications to suppress the symptoms or take a bunch of vitamins to try to mask the real problem.
"Find the root cause" became my motto
After graduating from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, I joined a practice and helped many women address their health conditions in a natural manner. I learned quickly that no two people have the same disease or illness. Every person's body shows imbalances or deficiencies in different ways. And, this is why it is so important to address the individual person and not just treat symptoms or lab work.
A common example is two women may suffer from terrible migraine headaches. In conventional medicine they would probably be given the same medication to help suppress the pain symptoms.
but, this doesn't really work long term......
That natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well
The reason for the migraine headaches for these two women are completely different. One woman has significant food sensitivities due to her leaky gut and this causes her to have migraines. The other woman has liver congestion which is contributing to her hormonal imbalance which is the cause of her headaches. In both cases inflammation is an underlying factor but the wellness plan they were put on was very different.
Hopefully this all makes sense and this is why I encourage women to keeping asking "Why?" Always try to dig deeper to find out what the real underlying factor is for your symptoms. Is it specific nutritional deficiencies due to poor digestion and absorption? Is it hormonal imbalance due to liver congestion and adrenal stress?
Everything in our bodies is connected to everything else so if you're having issues with one system (thyroid, let's say) then you can be sure other systems in your body are affected (adrenals, hormones, weight, lipids, etc)
It doesn't matter if it is infertility, hot flashes, night sweats, hair loss, heavy periods, joint pain or any other health issue you have. Find the underlying cause.
My baby journey.........
I wanted to have children but because of my history with Ulcerative Colitis and a family history of complications during pregnancy and labor I wasn't sure if having a baby was in my future.
I knew that good Preconception Care is the key for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. For months I read medical journals and learned what was needed to improve egg and sperm quality and why this is so important for my future baby's health and my baby's babies in the future.
I followed a cleanse program and then spent the following 2 months taking key nutrients to support egg quality and fertility. As a future mom I became passionate about fertility and children's health.
I learned that our children's health starts with our own health..... before we even conceive them! Yes, our baby's health depends on how healthy we are. It takes 3 months to support and nurture egg and sperm's quality.
I had my son when I was 36 and I had my daughter at 40. Every single day I am grateful for their health and strong vitality. I know that preparing my body was key to an easy conception, pregnancy and most importantly, healthy children.
I always tell clients who are worried about taking 3 months "off" from "trying" because they are worried they are getting older and don't have time to waste that 3 months in the grand scheme of things is nothing. Wouldn't you rather invest in good preconception care and have the peace of mind knowing you did everything you could for your fertility and baby's health instead of having regrets later?
So many women are led to believe that all they need to take is a prenatal and some folic acid during the preconception period. This is just wrong and I am on a mission to help women understand what real Preconception Health is.
I help future moms (and future dads) address their underlying health so that they can get pregnant easily and most importantly, have a super healthy child.
Even if IVF is the only option there is still so much that can be done to help boost and optimize health in order to boost the success rate of the IVF procedure.
Here's why I became so passionate about fertility and proper preconception care:
I learned that infertility or recurrent miscarriages could be due underlying deficiencies or imbalances and forcing a body to get pregnant using medical procedures like IUI or IVF is not the right answer if these underlying health imbalances have not been corrected first. I encourage women to focus on their underlying health first before considering these expensive and potentially risky procedures.
Infertility can be a sign.... listen to your body and address your underlying health first.
Based on my own experience and the research I have done I put together a Preconception Health program which provides a structured protocol for 3 months for future moms (and dads) to follow. The goal of this program is to optimize your health prior to conception by reducing inflammation, feeding all your cells with the key nutrients to boost egg and sperm quality and to help your body make fertility a priority.
I also work with couples who have been struggling with fertility and put together a Fertility program to help guide couples through the process of identifying where their fertility roadblocks are and then providing a plan to overcome those roadblocks. Infertility can be a sign.... listen to your body and address the underlying cause.
There is so much research available telling us what we can do to help overcome fertility issues and help give our baby's the best start possible.
The next phase for me....
I am so grateful for my 2 healthy pregnancies and my 2 healthy kids but the reality is I now have to start thinking about Perimenopause and Menopause.
I have helped so many women in the past with their "menopausal symptoms" like hot flashes, night sweats, irregular or heavy periods, hair thinning, decreased libido, bone loss, etc. The one thing in common with all of these women was that they had neglected their health for so long that their health foundation was "all out of whack" which is why the transition into menopause was so difficult. I helped these women to re-balance their health foundation by addressing their imbalances and deficiencies.
By helping all of these women I learned that preparing for perimenopause and menopause starts now.... what I mean is that there is no magic age that you have to be to start preparing for menopause. The more time you focus on your health and help to support your health foundation the easier and uneventful menopause will be. So, it doesn't matter how old you are.. if you want to make menopause a breeze and something to look forward to instead of something to fear then start focusing on your health now.
Assess and address any imbalances or deficiencies you have and optimize your health.

Happy clients share their stories......
I am a Registered Nurse (RN) and am well versed in the medical field. I had my Blood Work Analysis done with Dr. Singh. I gained a deeper understanding of how my body is functioning and how the stressors and illnesses I have had have affected my on-going health. I learned a great deal that I would not have known from just looking at my lab results. This was my first time having my blood work analyzed and I will definitely do it again. I feel like I gained a new depth of understanding on how to proceed in caring for my health.
I am so happy I had it done!
I am a 35 year old mother of two who has had to suffer through one UTI after another since pregnancy and before. I was tired of going to my family practitioner only to have to go through an another 7 day antibiotic course each time. Dr. Singh took the time to really understand all my symptoms and recommended a remedy that got me 100% better by the very next morning. Now, I am far less worried about getting another UTI as Dr. Singh has shown me there is a much more natural and inexpensive solution to getting over them. She explained how and why frequent antibiotics weren't good for my health and my baby's health.
In early 2005 I developed a chronic cough and was diagnosed with Acid Reflux Disease (LPR). I went to multiple doctors who all told me the same thing: I would have to take several medications for the rest of my life, and that I should really consider having surgery done on my esophagus. I was fed up and I knew, and believed, that my body had the power to heal itself. Having never been to an ND before I was nervous about seeing Dr. Singh. When I went in to see her for the first time she was very patient and listened to everything I had say, whereas I always felt rushed and handed pills at all the other traditional doctor’s offices. It didn’t take her long to help me isolate my problem and after just a few short weeks on a homeopathic remedy I already could tell a difference. It has now been about 7 months and my chronic cough is completely gone! I really enjoy working with Dr. Singh and I feel that she genuinely does care about my health. I highly recommend her.
My experience so far with fertility specialists resulted in a diagnosis of “unexplained fertility” and their only answer was expensive treatments which no way guaranteed my fertility problems would be solved. Dr. Singh identified numerous fertility factors which can be improved only by me.
I am so encouraged by my new knowledge and will make the changes to improve my health as I continue on this journey to parenthood. I highly recommend this Fertility Course for anyone who wants real answers for their fertility issues.
After being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis at age 15, my doctors put me on steroids and methotrexate. The treatment worked for about a year after which I had another flare up. We tried a few more different medications that did not help at all. Our next option was to start on Remicade infusions or consider surgery.
Before we made that decision, my mom decided to search for alternative therapies. Luckily, she found Dr. Singh. We went for an initial consultation where we talked about all that had taken place. She suggested that we do a thorough blood analysis. She then put me on a naturopathic plan that included nutrition, homeopathy, and supplements. This helped heal what was damaged.
I appreciate the fact that she did not give up on me and took the time to repeatedly analyze what was going on and make adjustments to the therapy. Thanks to Dr. Singh, I have been symptom free for almost two years now. Dr. Singh’s treatment really work and I do not have to take any of the other medications that gave me lots of side effects in the past
For two and a half years I experienced a wide range of cystic acne and in later stages blisters that made even showering a painful experience. I tried almost everything with the exception of Accutane. Within the first month of working with Dr. Singh my skin had dramatically improved and with certain supplements I noticed almost immediate results. Through working with Dr. Singh my over all health has improved and I have gained a greater understanding of balanced living! Thank you, Dr. Singh!
I have been told by several doctors that I had varying conditions: immune system in hyperdrive, allergies, unknown skin condition, exercise induced asthma. The treatments offered were steroids, weekly injections, topical creams and prescription strength inhalers. My aim has always been to improve my health and each of these solutions was aimed at treating a symptom and all failed. Only now that I have been working with Dr. Singh have I confirmed my belief that all of these symptoms are somehow connected. Over the years the longevity of these symptoms have taken a toll on my health- diminished eyesight, chronic congestion, dulled senses and memory loss. Now, with Dr. Singh’s help and guidance I am experiencing improvement with my every level, I no longer need reading glasses, and I'm not congested until I eat something I know I shouldn't. The fog has lifted from my brain and I'm sharper and more confident, and, oh yes, I almost forgot, my memory has improved too! My skin is improving and I have every confidence that I will be relieved of this affliction that I have suffered from since childhood. Dr. Singh is the doctor I have been seeking to help me reach optimum health!
I took the homeopathic remedy on the way home from my appointment. Of course I wasn't expecting anything to happen right away since this kind of healing, the body healing itself, takes time. You can imagine how shocked I was that evening when I realized that I felt limber. I could wiggle my fingers, and there was no stiffness. Same with all my joints. The best was that I could pop up from the floor (I was down there wiping little dog paws) without pushing off the side of a chair. I hadn't been able to do that for months. I felt 5 years joint younger :) This meant I could consider working at a job again that required - well movement. I surely plan to continue seeing Dr. Singh."
I have been seeing Dr. Singh for the last three and half years for my kids and she has been an absolute delight to work with. She is extremely thorough in understanding all the symptoms the child is facing from both a physical and mental standpoint. She follows up regularly to find out how the child is doing and if any symptoms have changed and then recommends the appropriate remedy accordingly. My two children have hugely benefited from Dr. Singh's treatments and we no longer have to struggle with bad tasting medicines that only treat the symptoms and not the cause. Thank you Dr. Singh for continuing to keep my kids healthy!"
I loved the cleanse, especially the protein powder, which tastes great.
I had been having hot flashes throughout the day and night, and trouble sleeping. Both of these issues disappeared by the end of the second week and thankfully have not returned.
I have tried several other cleanses, and the Zama Reboot is the most gentle yet effective.
I hope to do it again soon!
I now have no doubt that your preconception program contributed to the fact that she is such a happy and healthy baby. The amount of joy that Kylie has brought into our lives has really exceeded our expectations.
I'm so grateful for all the work you've done to help me!
I have been seeing Dr Singh for about 9 months now. She is thorough, friendly and has really been great in guiding me towards better health. I came to her because I was concerned about my hair not growing and not only are we beginning to turn that around with some supplements that are correcting some deficincies, but she has found some underlying issues that she is addressing VERY successfully with a homeopathic remedy!! I couldn’t be more pleased, and I would highly recommend her!
Dr. Singh is wonderful! My 2 year old son had a chronic "rattle" in his chest for about 8 months that I could not get to go away. After going to an MD several times and being put on several different antibiotics, with no resolve, I found Dr. Singh and decided to give her a try. I am so glad I did! She was so thorough and spent so much time with my son and I, gathering a very detailed health history from his birth to present. She really cares and considers every system in the body to figure out where the problem is coming from. Dr. Singh takes time to find out what is causing the problem, she does not just try to fix the symptoms. She addressed my son's overall health, and had his rattle cured in just 3-4 visits! I am so grateful for Dr. Singh's care and would highly recommend her services to anyone, old or young, who is looking for someone to help them obtain better health! Thank you Dr. Singh!"
My blood pressure was so high that the doctors always did it at least 3 times and told me that medications were the next step. My cholesterol and triglycerides were "scary" too but I really didn't want to start taking medications. I knew I had to do something. I was having a really hard time motivating myself to make the changes I needed to. The Zama Reboot was perfect because it was structured and I received all the guidance and instructions I needed to stick with it. I am happy to say that after following the program my blood pressure is now almost normal which is *huge* for me and my cholesterol dropped almost over 30 points. It wasn't easy in the beginning but it is so worth it.
I have tried many cleanses, but the Zama Reboot has been by far the most effective and gentle. I loved the many helpful health tips and being part of a group cleanse. I experienced several remarkable health improvements. For six months prior to the Reboot, I had been suffering from adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder), an inflammatory condition in my left shoulder that did not improve with physical therapy or pain killers. After about two weeks into the Reboot, I noticed one morning that I was able to move my left arm again, and by the end of the cleanse had regained about 95% of the mobility in my shoulder. My energy levels also greatly improved and I have sleeping much better. I am looking forward to the next Reboot!
I loved the course!
The course has created so much awareness for me around effects of food/diet, toxins, stress, sleep, etc. on fertility that I did not know before.
I am now following all the things I've learned and am building a healthy foundation. Dr. Singh is extremely knowledgeable and she provided me with a good holistic understanding of how getting your body ready for pregnancy starts with first building a solid foundation.
I’m over 40 and just had my annual physical and also I am currently seeing a fertility specialist.
Both doctors have been very pleased with my results and hormone levels and I owe my success to getting my body ready for pregnancy to Dr. Singh.
Dr. Singh has made such an impact on my life. I am so very, very thankful for her help and expertise. In April 2012, we met to thoroughly discuss my health history. She had me do a lot of blood work and urinalysis. With those test results, she was able to plan my recovery to good health. The tests showed many areas of concern, but I particularly remember that my adrenal glands were depleted/not working properly. My body was filled with inflammation. Dr. Singh had me begin a regimen of supplements, enzymes, protein, and homeopathic remedies. I also made some changes in my diet. Dr. Singh said that when my gut was healed, my spots would go away. I am happy to say that my spots have gone away; and I believe I am definitely on the road to good health again. “Find the Root Cause” is her motto. Instead of just treating the symptoms like most physicians would do, Dr. Singh finds the root cause. I am so thankful for all she has done for me!
I started the cleanse program after hearing about it from facebook....I know a couple of people that have done it and I know it really helped them reset their bodies and as I entered this new stage of my life post babies, I was ready to focus on "me" for a while....In all honesty, it was not nearly as hard as I imagined it would be! Toast has always been my go to meal, especially when I just wanted a light meal....That was my biggest challenge but I survived and came out being more in touch with my body than I had been for a very long time! The aches I had in my joints (mainly my ankles) were gone and I generally felt lighter and healthy and its a wonderful feeling! I highly recommend talking to Dr. Reena about issues you might have and giving this cleanse a go! It might not seem feasible at first but stick with it and you'll come out looking and feeling stronger and healthier than you have in a while!
I found this course to be thoroughly enlightening and engaging.
The videos are very informative and do not take a lot of your time, which is important.
Everyone else just wants to give a quick fix and slap a band aid on the issue without actually delving deep below the surface. But this course helps get to the root of the issues and gives so many tools and resources to help start addressing those issues.
I did fertility treatments for three years and not one doctor addressed my weight issue or the underlying issues.
It was simply Western medicine with many medications and injections involved.
AMH is not everything.... this is what Dr. Singh kept telling me. I wasn't sure at first but I followed her advice and focused on optimizing my health. Well, after a few months my cycles were so much better and overall I felt better. I finally conceived after trying for almost 2 years! I knew IVF wasn't right for me and I just had a feeling that I could get pregnant if I knew what to "fix". Well, Dr. Singh figured it out and I feel so much better! I call her a detective because she looks at things differently and figures out what the problem is. She has helped me so much in understanding how important mine and my husband's health is before trying to conceive. I know that because of her we're finally going to have our baby and that he or she will be healthy, happy and smart because of everything she's taught us! Don't waste your time on "natural cures for fertility".. everyone is different and it's important to work with someone who will figure out your particular issues.
All I can say is WOW! This course is amazing!
Whether a woman will be conceiving naturally or using assisted reproductive technology, following Dr. Singh's valuable guidelines on nutrition, sleep optimization, stress reduction, and toxin reduction will set the stage for a healthier mother and child. I love the way the course is designed in weekly modules, making it a quick and easy way to learn this information which would otherwise take hours and hours of research to learn. Each module also contains a 'mission', providing simple and concrete steps that can be taken to implement the information provided. Dr. Singh has distilled the art of preconception care into a concise, research-backed, and easy to understand course. Her friendly and positive approach provides this important information in a format that is accessible and actionable. Thank you Dr. Singh for providing this wonderful course!
I have suffered from Migraines my entire life. In addition, as we age, minor aches and pains become a regular part of our life. We learn to live with it without realizing how much we have slowed down in the process. I was introduced to the Zama cleanse through a friend and I decided to give it a try. The diet wasn't too difficult for me. The best part was that I had so much energy and slept soundly.
I was mentally very relaxed and happy, in general! I didn't even realize that all those age-related aches and pain were gone completely and my migraines had completely gone away! I lost 8 pounds during the process which was a shock to me because my thyroid issues makes it very difficult to lose weight.
I realized the REAL benefits of the cleanse after it was over and I started to go back to my old ways. The Reboot really helped me to understand what is and isn't good for my body and mind.
I lost weight, my migraines went away and my aches and pains disappeared! I gained high energy, better mood and better sleep.
This was my first time and I would do it again in a heartbeat! I would recommend this cleanse to anyone and everyone.
The cleanse was great! The recipes provided by Dr. Singh were helpful and gave me plenty of tasty options to choose from.
Prior to beginning the cleanse, I was struggling with high blood pressure and cholesterol. Upon completing the cleanse, my cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels all came down to normal levels. As a side I lost 20 pounds in a little under a month. My doctor was very pleased and ordered me off of the blood pressure medicine I was taking. Needless to say, I am very happy to not be taking any medication.
Ever since my son was a baby, his tonsils were always swollen. Never infected, but always swollen up really big. When I asked his regular doctor about this, she said some kids are just like that, and if the swollen tonsils continued to interfere with his breathing, they would remove the tonsils. I thought the swollen tonsils must be a sign of some underlying issue, and took my three-year-old to see Dr. Singh. After following her dietary and supplementary suggestions for a couple months, the swelling started to go down. My son's tonsils are now smaller than they have ever been, and are continuing to improve. He now sleeps with his mouth closed. Dr. Singh seems to have pinpointed sensitivities he has to certain foods and has helped us support his overall health and immune system. I really appreciate her approach to care, which is to evaluate the patient's full health picture, rather attempting to treat one individual symptom. It is also nice to have a doctor who isn't rushed and takes the time to listen and address any questions you have.
I am so grateful for the work Dr. Singh has done with my husband, Wayne. Wayne was diagnosed with prostate cancer the month after I began seeing Dr. Singh (May 2012). We immediately decided that we should get Wayne an appointment with her also. Our hope was that we could slow the cancer growth and/or possibly rid his body of the cancer.
Dr. Singh met with Wayne to discuss his health history and did the blood work and urinalysis as I did. She made a health plan for him (protein, supplements, enzymes, homeopathic remedies, and diet changes) which he has followed for the past 2 years. After one year on this regimen, his PSA had gone down slightly and his annual biopsy showed the cancer was about the same.
However, this year (after 2 years of being on Dr. Singh’s regimen), the biopsy showed NO CANCER. There are still 3 “hotspots” that the urologist is watching, but we are rejoicing with the news of this latest report! The urologist was amazed at the biopsy results, but we know that the good report is more evidence of Dr. Singh’s expertise and much prayer.
I have been going to Dr. Singh for several months now for treatment of a nagging and recurring sore throat and cough. Before beginning her treatment, I would count on getting sick every couple of months. Since Dr. Singh has been treating me, the throat troubles have gone away. An added benefit has been an increase in energy and a feeling of overall well being. Dr. Singh took the time to understand my body and identified the deficiencies I had after the birth of my child. I love her caring and personal approach and have already recommended her to friends!”
I consulted Dr. Singh for a skin problem that I had previously consulted dermatologists & other homeopaths for. I was impressed with her thorough questionnaire to research my medical & dietary history. I started following her recommendations, & was pleasantly surprised at how quickly my skin improved, as evidenced by "before" & "after" photos over 2 months. I would be pleased to recommend her to anyone looking for a holistic healing approach; have in fact recommended her to many of my friends already.
I just wanted to let you know that I have already seen a significant improvement in my gut's behavior since starting the new supplements Thursday morning, which I find to be nothing short of a miracle! I appreciate the work you do and am really looking forward to continually benefiting from your expertise. My hubby is as excited that I found you as I am! :-)"
I encourage all my fertility clients to participate in the Foundations Fertility course.
As a Naturopathic provider and an acupuncturist there is so much that can be done to help women become pregnant and to nurture and develop a healthy baby. However, there is only so much time during an appointment to go through all the education and necessary steps.
Dr. Singh’s fertility course contains numerous pearls and researched information to assist women in their journey to motherhood. As a provider, I can then focus on individual needs knowing my patients are utilizing the information and preparing through the activities from this course.
I was referred to Dr. Singh by my primary care physician because I am so sensitive to traditional pharmaceutical medications and can't take them. I consistently had high blood pressure and came to Dr. Singh for help. Since becoming her client, I have completely stopped my blood pressure medication and my blood pressure has remained normal thanks to the herbal formula that Dr. Singh put together for me. I am now a strong proponent of homeopathic & naturopathic care."
I would love for all of my fertility patients to use this information to learn about their bodies & fertility. There is a tremendous amount of information online about fertility and many of my patients get very confused about what to listen to. Dr. Singh's information will really help you hone in on what needs to be addressed. Her series is the best resource I have seen online, and you can learn it at home. Even if you have seen an expert, they will never have time to explain all of this information as effectively as she does. Start here if you are interested in addressing fertility more naturally
At age 47, I had begun having chronic cardiac arrhythmias which at one point were so intense I thought I was having a heart attack. I was frustrated with both my general practitioner and cardiologist, who said I was in good health and that the arrhythmias were nothing to be concerned about. I wanted someone to help me understand their underlying cause and help me get rid of them without prescription drugs or surgery. I was skeptical when I made my first appointment with Dr. Singh but she spent so much time asking me questions. She took all of my issues seriously even ones my other doctors had told me were insignificant or imaginary. These included years of dealing with hypoglycemia, “foggy brain”, anxiety, low energy, headaches, intense menstrual cramps, and chronic cough, and insomnia. I have experienced many other health improvements that have been unexpected yet so appreciated! The most significant and obvious of these has been the elimination of the debilitating menstrual cramps I used to have for 30 years. They used to be so bad that all I could do was writhe in pain for two days every month. I was so excited that I emailed Dr. Singh right away, telling her “This is one of the best Christmas presents I could imagine.” Following a three-week detox program my energy level was comparable to what I remember from my 20s. I had no problems hiking up and down hills and maintaining energy and stamina throughout the day. I have also noticed a reduced severity of many allergic reactions. The contrast in my overall health from where I was last year is like night and day. I also keep improving my diet and exercise. With all of the unexpected and significant improvements experienced so far, I am looking forward to what surprises await this next year!
Dr. Singh is more than a Naturopathic Doctor to me, she is my friend, my therapist, my cheerleader, my secret fertility guru. I am so grateful I put my trust in her and worked with her exclusively for the past year and a half.
When I reached out to Dr. Singh, I started with the blood work analysis, which revealed areas we could immediately address. Having undergone many failed IVF cycles, an ectopic pregnancy, chemical pregnancies and multiple gynecological surgeries I decided to try a naturopathic approach as a last resort. I was never told there could be another way. Being surgically diagnosed with Endo in my twenties I was put on Lupron post surgery and suppressed on birth control pills for years. I was told then by my gynecologist not waste time and to see a fertility specialist if I was not able to get pregnant within 6 month. And so it began, shortly after getting married, I felt pressure to get pregnant. I was 26 at the time my fertility journey and uphill battle started. I started with an IUI in order to prove to my insurance that I indeed needed IVF. Once the IUI failed, we were approved for IVF. It was a very emotional process and after our 3rd attempt we got pregnant only to discover it was an ectopic.
I felt less than as an infertile woman. I was blamed for my miscarriage. I honestly didn’t know if I would be able to have children and this constantly ate away at me. I always wanted children and never imagined myself without. It took many years and in my personal experience, I can’t say I ever got over my miscarriage or all of my arrested embryos. Endo, painful heavy periods, random stabbing pain, excessive IVF stimulation drugs, multiple surgeries to address Endo, and failed IVF cycles had become my normal. I had just accepted it. Each time I visited a health care professional or had my annual gynecological appointment each mention of painful periods, back pain, foot pain, was just shrugged off and I was constantly reminded of the fact that this is normal for the stage of Endometriosis I have.
Surgery that would lead to some initial relief but only add to my scar tissue was always offered as a solution to the pain. Desperate for more answers, I had consulted with an Endo Specialist, I was basically told to continue doing what I was doing and that there really wasn’t anything more I could do for my condition. It wasn’t until 13 years later ( and 3 more failed IVF cycles) when I accidentally discovered Dr. Singh that I was told there is another way. With no working fallopian tubes, I would still need IVF to get pregnant, but for the first time, I could address the inflammation in my body and start to heal my gut and systematically work to support all my areas in my body that were not working optimally as indicated in my blood work analysis. I could do this naturally without prescription drugs by using food and supplements. It would require work on my end but I decided to commit and try something new. I owed it to myself to try.
Dr. Singh would ask me so many questions and really took the time to get to know ALL of me: my backstory, my medical history, my family dynamics, my setbacks, my dreams and my core beliefs. Our monthly check-ins became a safe space to address so many questions and her knowledge, tips, cheerful and caring demeanor was always so nurturing. My favorite and hardest homework assignment was not thinking about my fertility or anything related to wanting a baby. I was asked to commit to this for a year. For the first time in my life, I was told not to think about wanting a baby. This was a change of pace from the hurry up, don’t dilly dally, you must act now if you want a baby message I had been receiving from 26 years old. Instead, I was to start a gratitude journal, commit to visualizations, and healing my body by following my Wellness Plan to the best of my ability.
I can go on and on singing Dr. Singh’s praises. Having worked with Dr. Singh over the past year and a half, I have made sacrifices and put in the hard work but I gained a lot in the process. I dropped 18lbs, reduced the chronic inflammation in my body, improved my egg health, found a new sense of gratitude and am hopeful again!
Dr. Singh believed in my body’s ability to heal and get pregnant when I didn’t. She was there to help me bounce back from the setbacks and to cheer me on with the small victories and the large ones. My husband and I respect Dr. Singh and are so grateful to have her by our side during our IVF journey.
I am currently expecting our first child.
My only regret is not finding her sooner.
Thank you Dr. Singh for your passion and dedication to helping couples like myself overcoming their fertility challenges.
I started experiencing major fatigue, and gut issues. And I was gaining weight! I got a full blood panel done and my GP said everything was fine.... but I didn't feel fine. Dr. Singh did the blood work analysis and told me what she saw-- thyroid deficiency, overtaxed adrenals, and inflammation... all of these were contributing to my symptoms. I am so glad I didn't settle for my regular doctor's assessment and I got the blood work analysis done. After only 6 weeks of making the changes I needed to make I am already feeling so much better! Everyone should get blood work analysis done.
My wife and I have been on a rollercoaster ride at trying to extend our family. I could go into the details of the past 4 years, multiple failed IVF cycles, surgeries, and so-on, but I will not. I just want you to know at the end of it all, the doctors told us the our best chances for success was to use a donor. I will, however, speak about our experience with the treatment from Dr. Singh. I want to be honest and tell you when I first heard about her program and what it entailed I was very skeptical and didn’t believe it would work. The only reason I decided to go along with it was I didn’t want to have any regrets later in our lives. I do not have words to express how happy I am that I did not dismiss the program from the beginning. The program involves diet and supplements, nothing too difficult to do, but it takes dedication and patience. We were on the program for about 10 months, and we ran out of time with insurance, thus we had to move forward with our IVF cycle. We have been blessed and are now expecting our own biological child and could not be happier. The only regret I have is not finding Dr. Singh earlier.
I normally never write reviews or recommendation to anything. But in this case, I wanted to reach out to those skeptical people, like me, to tell them to give this a chance.
Hope this reaches you, and you are just as blessed as my wife and I.

As a 41 year old mommy wanting to have another baby I gave in to the fear of needing to do IVF to have baby #2. Dr Reena Singh let me know that my age is not a reason to jump to IVF... That we need to see if there is a problem in the first place. After doing the blood work analysis with Dr. Singh I realized I jumped the gun into meds when if I had all the information before I could have avoided a lot of stress and $50k dollars! She's well worth the investment!
Having a child can be physically and emotionally demanding, but Dr. Singh's care was instrumental in helping me and my husband bolster our health before and during pregnancy. Her preconception and prenatal care was thoughtful, thorough and compassionate. Dr. Singh took the time to work with us and develop a holistic wellness plan which was tailored to our specific needs. Once we had our baby, Dr. Singh's postnatal care for us and our baby helped us get back in shape and handle the demands of life, work, and our bundles of joy!
I’m a 55 year old woman who has suffered from osteoarthritis which has gotten progressively worse for the last 30 years. I was in constant pain, day and night, and was getting very little sleep. I did some research online and found Dr. Singh. I had never been to a Naturopath before, but was very impressed with her interest in me as a complete person; my emotional, spiritual and physical health. After that first visit I started to understand the possible connections between all these things and my physical symptoms. Dr. Singh eventually found the right homeopathic remedies to give me the results I needed. Within three days of starting them, I noticed the significant difference I had been hoping for. Now, I very rarely need the pain tincture and take no OTC pain relievers at all! If you are seeing Dr. Singh, trust that she will work with you and continue to support you in your journey back to health. Everyone should have a Dr. like Dr. Singh! I’m so glad I found her!!"
I went to Dr. Singh for a plethora of symptoms I was having and I was quite surprised to notice a huge difference the very same day I started taking the homeopathic remedies she gave me. It was almost instantaneous. Dr. Singh is wonderful. She spends so much time with you to help narrow down what is going on in your body, and she isn’t limited by traditional medicine thinking which is exactly what I needed after seeing many, many practitioners over so many years. Thank you, Dr. Singh!
I’m 27 years old and I started seeing Dr. Singh after I finally admitted to myself that the health issues I've been struggling with the past 10 years were just not getting any better. When I was 17, I was diagnosed with an eating disorder that caused a range of problems because I refused to eat almost anything and gain weight to a healthy level. The loss of my menstrual cycle came first, followed by liver issues, vitamin deficiencies, acne, periodic night sweats, digestive issues, allergies, and asthma. Today, although I have recovered mentally from the ED and maintained a healthy weight for years, I never made a full recovery physically. Feeling ashamed and stressing daily over my health, I wanted nothing more than to get it back and I knew the best chance to try and make that happen was to find an ND that could help me. At my first appointment with Dr. Singh, I was very nervous and although it was hard for me to talk about these things, in no way did she make me feel uncomfortable. We discussed in detail the timeline of my health over the past 10 years and after some comprehensive blood work, Dr. Singh developed a personalized wellness plan for me that included nutrition, botanicals, and homeopathy. Choosing Dr. Singh as my ND is by far the best decision I've ever made for my health. After just 5 months, my periodic night sweats have gone away, my digestion and skin has improved, and I no longer have a need for my allergy and asthma prescriptions! As an avid runner, I’m thrilled to be able to enjoy my favorite pastime even more now that I have little to no asthma symptoms. I have more energy, I am happier, and feel a lot less stressed than I ever remember being in a long time! I feel like I have a piece of myself back that I lost years ago and thanks to Dr. Singh, I have an optimistic outlook that my health will continue to get better over the coming months!"
