After over 3 years of trying to conceive, I came to Dr. Lane as a last resort. I knew fertility treatments weren’t for me and since I practice a holistic lifestyle, finding Dr. Lane was exactly what I needed. Her focus was getting my body to peak performance which would in turn create an optimal environment to conceive. After seeing Dr. Lane for a few short months, I am happy to say that I am pregnant! I am in my 15th week and continue to see Dr. Lane to make sure my body stays as healthy as can be. I am a vegetarian and have food allergies so making sure I am getting the right nutrition for my baby has been a priority. Since Dr. Lane has a focus in nutrition, she has continued to monitor my health through blood test results and consultations. She has put my mind at ease throughout my pregnancy which has been a tremendous help. I will continue to see her throughout my pregnancy and even after to make sure I am on track. Thanks!
After trying to detox and get my body on target to conceive with a diagnoses of PCOS before me I knew there would be challenges related to conceiving. I was referred to Dr. Lane and she was just the breath of fresh air and guidance that I needed. She focused on my body as a whole, which rarely occurs amongst all traditional doctors I have been under. She made sure my body was healthy and functioning the way that it should with all natural medicine (natural herbs and supplements, etc.) What I like best about Dr. Lane is that she listens to all my concerns prior to offering solutions. Dr. Lane is a joy to work with and knowledgeable beyond her years. After getting to my optimal health I conceived in just a few months. We are expected a bouncing baby May 2016!
There are no words to express my gratitude for helping to make this precious little being a reality. Thank you for believing in his possibility even when I had doubts, especially since our first child was born via IVF. I wanted with all of my heart to conceive naturally and your wisdom, support and guidance made it achievable.
When I came to Dr. Lane I was exhausted, desperate and not trusting of doctors. My journey of trying to get pregnant started months before I met Dr. Lane. I met with the top 3 Fertility doctors in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area. All three showed no genuine care or concern for me and my husband. It was obvious they only cared about money. Without going into too much personal detail I will just say that they all said I will be lucky to have babies, and if I do, I defiantly won’t be able to have them past 35. Well, I’m excited to say that I’m 37 and 7 months pregnant! I contribute this miracle to the care and love of Dr. Lane. She treated my entire health, got to the root of my issues and really demonstrated care and love in the process. I now live in CA and still have phone appointments with her because that’s how much I love and trust her professional opinion. Dr. Lane not only is brilliant and more than qualified, she has a natural medical instinct for people’s health and well being. My husband and I see Dr. Lane as part of the family and feel very blessed to have her as our doctor.
I started seeing Dr. Lane in February 2015, during my luteal phase. Prior to Dr. Lane, I received acupuncture from another provider for 5 months. At the time, I was a healthy 38 year old and didn’t see any reason why I couldn’t get pregnant. My FSH raised in the previous year from 12.6 to 13+ and my former Naturopathic Medical Doctor (NMD) was getting anxious and wanted me to see a Reproductive Endocrinologist (RE).
I had seen a RE before and did not like that experience, during my first appointment I was asked to do IVF and take fertility drugs. I had given up that path altogether.
In my first appointment with Dr. Lane we talked for several hours focusing on what the possible issues could be. Dr. Lane wanted to look at my adrenals and optimize my TSH level (which was already normal). Dr. Lane also focused on my emotional health and prescribed a homeopathic medicine. The homeopathic medicine helped me tremendously. She prescribed other supplements to optimize my adrenals throughout the day; in addition, I started getting acupuncture from Dr. Lane weekly.
In the next cycle, my FSH was already a little lower ~11 something and emotionally I felt better, too. In an appointment after ovulation, 4 days post ovulation to be precise, she asked ‘what’s the news,’ as if she knew this is the month. I was skeptical. I had literally just started taking some of the supplement she prescribed. In fact, I had only taken the thyroid supplement for 2 days and the adrenal medicine not more than 3 weeks. Around 8 days post ovulation I found out I was pregnant.
In addition to being a great person, Dr. Lane is very good at what she does. She will diagnose the problem and fix it. I was especially impressed by her skills in other alternative medicines, such as homeopathy. Dr. Lane also combines several acupuncture techniques to optimize results. She has a very nice personality and will address all your questions and never rush you out. I am continuing to see Dr. Lane with the prenatal care with great results. I highly recommend her for anyone trying to conceive or with any other health issue.
One of the things I deeply appreciate about Dr. Lane is that I have never once felt as though I was condescended to or patronized by her. Many doctors give you a five minute, Reader’s Digest version of what is going on with your health, and then they brush you off or resent your efforts to understand your condition better. That has never been the case with Dr. Lane. She always makes an effort to address every question her patients have, and she works hard to educate her patients about their conditions so that they can become partners in managing their own health. This level of commitment to respecting and caring for her patients, as well as her demonstrated skill in the diagnosis and treatment of the various diseases I suffer from has instilled in me a high degree of trust in her competence as a physician.
I particularly have been impressed with her commitment to the care of her fertility patients. As a woman who has invested a lot of time, emotion, and money into in-vitro fertilization, it was deeply important to me to have my IVF cycle be successful. Not only did Dr. Lane go above and beyond in rearranging her schedule so as to provide me with pre-transfer and post-transfer acupuncture treatments at the optimal times for my pregnancy to succeed, she also met with me frequently post-transfer to do additional acupuncture treatments to support my potentially complicated pregnancy. I truly believe that Dr. Lane’s acupuncture made this pregnancy the resounding success it has been, in spite of the hormonal and autoimmune disease challenges that I faced, and I urge any woman who is undergoing IVF to do the pre- and post-transfer acupuncture treatments so as to maximize their chance of their embryos implanting successfully.
Thanks again for all your help!
I have been a patient of Dr. Lane for over 7 years. I can honestly say she has been instrumental in transforming my health. She is always present and listens unconditionally. When my husband and I decided to start trying to conceive, Dr. Lane immediately shifted our treatment focus to supporting healthy hormone production as well as supporting other organ systems important in the fertility process. It was quite a journey, but ultimately I am confident that Dr. Lane’s interventions helped us to conceive our baby. She was supportive and encouraging consistently throughout the process. I highly recommend Dr. Lane and Arizona Natural Medicine for your general Naturopathic and fertility needs.
After a very long and emotionally exhausting 12 months of trying to conceive, my family and I decided to take a break from the fertility doctor world (and it’s expenses) and try a naturopathic perspective. I was referred to Dr. Lane and she changed our lives forever. She focused on my body as a whole, rather than simply targeting my hormones. She got my body healthy and functioning the way that it should with all natural medicine (natural herbs and supplements, etc.) Believe me when I say I have never felt healthier in my life. Her insight, natural treatment, and overall focus was incredible. In just 2 short months, we conceived. I cannot wait to see her again in just a few months to begin our next journey of conception!
I would love to add this picture and give my testimonial for your incredible guidance and care in conceiving our third child after being told my first child was a miracle by fertility specialists. Not only did you help me to conceive my second, but now third! You think outside the box in ways no other doctor has. It’s obvious how much you care about your patients and that is a true blessing. Aside from just helping me conceive, you have helped me in any other sickness, getting my body on track, postpartum, our daughter’s viral rash, etc. What you have done for our family will forever be cherished and I look forward to being a patient of yours for years to come!
At the age of 33, I began to experience hot flashes and stopped having a regular menses. I went to my OBGYN after having abnormal blood labs returned. March of 2011, I had an FSH of 72. My husband and I were informed that we should consider an egg donor immediately, if we really wanted kids and we were sent off with a few business cards for Fertility Doctors. In August of 2011, I began to work with a highly recommended Fertility Specialist. After several series of testing and procedures, I was still left facing the recommendation of an egg donor. My FSH had dropped to a 36, my AMH was at a 0.6.
I met with Dr. Lane in 2012, although she did not make any promises…I found the hope I was searching for. For the first time in a very long time, I felt that a Dr. cared more about me than what my hormone levels were. Dr. Lane made it very clear she was concerned with my health, both physically and emotionally. Dr. Lane recommended testing my cortisol levels and starting me on a few supplements to assist me with ovulating regularly. Shortly after starting the supplements, I was able to conceive naturally. I delivered a healthy, beautiful baby girl on March 3, 2013. I am very grateful to Dr. Lane for providing me with the support I needed.
I would recommend Dr Lane to anyone who is interested in becoming pregnant. My husband and I had been trying for over a year before I made an appointment for her fertility services. She put me on a three month treatment plan and to both our surprise I became pregnant after the first month of treatment. I gave birth to a healthy baby boy and I was able to see Dr. Lane for postpartum treatments.
“With FSH level of 23.7 and AMH of 0.1 it was thought that I will never get pregnant again. I had two fertility doctors turning me down with ‘secondary infertility’ and ‘premature menopause’ diagnosis. They looked at the numbers and recommended egg donation in a hurry, before I turn 40 and my chances would further narrow.
Dr. Lane had a different approach. She did not confine herself to the ‘numbers’ but rather examined them along with other evidence for a comprehensive picture. We sat through an in-depth interview in which Dr. Lane took note of symptoms like headaches, period (frequency, quality and duration), fatigue and discomfort in various body parts. She took down medical history and ran additional tests for adrenal function, liver function, and other systemic data that could be helpful. To be fair, Dr. Lane made a hypothesis about the culprits in my condition as early as the first interview but she made sure to substantiate her assumptions with solid data.
Eventually we agreed on a treatment that I could live with, considering my busy schedule as a working mom of a three year old. Dr. Lane figured that a good liver cleansing and adrenal support could help recover the hormones. She designed a plan for nourishing the cleansed systems and getting them back on track. It took a while, as profound remedies often do, but I felt a difference within a few weeks: I had more energy, was less irritable and generally happier. I had to work hard, adjust my diet and forgo certain foods that I liked, I also had to maintain a routine with meals and supplements. But eventually it paid off. I got pregnant naturally, without pumping my body with hormones and damaging chemicals. My pregnancy was healthy and pleasant and I gave birth to a perfect baby girl.
There are no guarantees, as Dr. Lane told me when we started, but it is worth a try before embarking on an expensive and potentially damaging fertility treatment. At the very least you’ll feel better and healthier and that in itself is priceless”.
“I have been a very satisfied patient of Dr. Lane for several years but recently got to take advantage of another aspect of her care. I grew up believing what other doctors told me – that it would be very difficult to get pregnant. Using acupuncture amongst other naturopathic strategies, Dr. Lane worked with me to get my hormones in balance and to improve my overall energy level. She helped prepare my body for pregnancy, and I got pregnant on the very first try. Unfortunately, my first pregnancy ended in miscarriage, but I was able to get pregnant again right away and had a precious baby girl. Dr. Lane worked with me during my pregnancy to make sure the baby and I were healthy. She went out of her way near the end of my pregnancy to answer my questions and provide advice on natural ways to get the birthing process going. After having my baby, I saw Dr. Lane several times for acupuncture to help my body in the recovery process. Despite the trauma of giving birth, I felt some immediate relief, especially with my abdomen muscles. Dr. Lane has always been a very caring, dedicated practitioner who takes my individual needs into account.”
“I decided to see Dr. lane after having my first miscarriage. Our focus was to build up my body and become as healthy as possible so that I would be better able to carry a future pregnancy. Some of the areas that we focused on were thyroid, adrenals, hormonal levels and B Vitamin levels. After a few months I was ready to try again but unfortunately that pregnancy also resulted in a miscarriage. I felt broken and defeated. If took almost a year until I felt emotionally ready to try again. I thought either “3 strikes you’re out” or “3rd time’s a charm”. By this time I was 41 years old. All the while I had continued my treatment with Dr. Lane and I can confidently say that I felt healthier than I had ever felt before. My energy level had increased significantly and I felt emotionally balanced and more resilient. During that time, Dr. Lane was very sensitive, insightful and caring. She remained confident and hopeful that I would be able to have a successful pregnancy and would gently remind me of that. Within a month, I received a positive home pregnancy test. I was guarded and apprehensive, afraid that I would experience another miscarriage. Eight weeks later, an ultrasound confirmed a viable pregnancy of twins!”
“I credit Dr. Lane with my healthy pregnancy. I feel that she provided the treatment necessary to prepare my body for pregnancy as well as giving me the right “dose” of emotional support that allowed for the opportunity. I value her opinion and trust her completely. Thank you Dr. Lane.”
I went to a fertility doctor because my husband and I had been trying to conceive a child and had so far, been unsuccessful. After running all the standard tests, the doctor gave me a 10% chance of conceiving on my own.
I spoke with Dr. Lane, who gave me a completely different perspective, and hope. She recommended a plan for me that included acupuncture, changes to my diet, and the Chinese Herbal formula, Women’s Precious. After just a few months, we were able to conceive and we now have a beautiful, healthy baby girl!
I’m happy to report I have an update to my original testimonial – I wasn’t sure I’d have luck a second time around but looked again to Dr Lane for guidance. Following a similar protocol, I was lucky enough to get pregnant again at 43 and we now have a healthy and handsome son!
I owe this to Dr. Lane as I truly believe that her guidance, support and Naturopathic perspective prepared my body for pregnancy. Thank you, Dr Lane!
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Kiera Lane for the past six years… and counting. Dr. Lane is my preferred health partner and primary care physician. With her knowledge and expertise, I have been able to resolve ongoing health issues that other doctors have overlooked and/or were unable to provide any relief. Dr. Lane evaluates more than just the symptoms to a health issue; she searches for the cause and the best treatment protocol. Most recently, I had complications after the delivery of my first baby. I was discharged from the hospital, with a severe post-delivery infection and edema. I was suffering from fatigue, pain and weakened immune system.”
“Dr. Lane treated me with homeopathic remedies, acupuncture, and other Naturopathic and integrative therapies to help me heal. Dr. Lane helped me “reboot” my system, resolve the infection and swelling, and regain my strength. Most importantly, Dr. Lane helped me become healthy again, so that I was able to take care of my family. I’ve experienced exceptional care from Dr. Lane and I continue to see her to maintain my health and wellness. In addition to Dr. Lane’s kind, caring approach, her associates are also professional and considerate. This makes, Arizona Natural Medicine a comfortable and friendly place to seek care. I’ve recommended Dr. Lane to my family and friends, as I trust she will provide each with the best, quality care with the most comprehensive and integrative approach.
