Supreme Fertility - combines DNA testing with consultations, lifestyle guidance and supplementation to help couples conceive.
About Supreme Fertility
A new standard has been set for fertility treatment in South Africa. Supreme Fertility is an innovative new fertility program that looks into the root cause of struggling to conceive and helps couples becoming the healthiest they can be in order to fall pregnant.
It is estimated that approximately 50% if infertility cases are caused by genetic issues. Supreme Fertility is unique in its approach in that, before any intervention, a DNA test is done on both the hopeful mother and family to determine what their genetic makeup indicates about their ability to conceive. The good news is that with this starting point, doctors are often able to identify possible genetic weaknesses and biological challenges very quickly and prescribe a course of treatment.
Supreme Fertility equips patients with an understanding of infertility linked to female factors and the potential causes of these, such as Endometriosis, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, uterine fibroids and more. By providing a list of screenings, one is able to determine if any of these are evident. In this way, further hinderances to falling pregnant are eliminated.
“Parenting begins the moment you begin to care for your own health in preparation for enhancing your child’s conception”
- Carista Lumbar Rosen.
Supreme Fertility builds on exactly that and enables both the mother and family to optimise their health and well-being in order to increase their chances of natural conception. The program includes lifestyle guidance and supplementation for both potential parents in order to help them conceive. Many over-the-counter vitamins can greatly benefit the process if taken from the onset of trying to conceive. A specific set are recommended.
Pre-natal vitamins almost always include folic acid, an essential nutrient that helps prevent devastating birth defects. However, what is not so commonly known is that approximately 50% of women’s bodies are unable to convert folic acid into folate, the form needed for it to be effective. Supreme Fertility has launched a folate supplement to address this important concern. This is merely one example of the solutions proposed by the program.
Because eating is such an important part of equipping the body with the strength to conceive, a recommended eating plan is included for both him and her. This not only includes what to eat, and what not to eat, but also gives a recommended calorie intake to ensure that the body can redirect this energy.
Lifestyle changes such as the use of cell phones, laptops, air filtration, stress levels and an optimal BMI (body mass index) are recommended as part of this unique program. Also included is a recommended detoxification of one’s house, food and personal care products. And while the adage “self-care” if often used loosely, Supreme Fertility specifies the importance of this in specific ways.

Dr Christa was instrumental in the formation of the Supreme Fertility programme, as she realized there was a great opportunity to use the personalized data provided by DNA testing on which to base fertility solutions for couples battling to conceive. Having seen the tremendous cost of IVF, which is so often prescribed, Christa noticed that there are often simpler (and more cost effective) solutions – the keys to which lie in each person’s DNA. With her formidable approach to research, Christa formulated this innovative concept, which has helped many couples on their fertility journey.
