Why This Matters To Me
I’m not just a doctor with expertise in natural fertility solutions. What makes me different is my own struggle with fertility. I know with real first-hand experience: a fertility struggle is a struggle–emotionally, physically, and relationally.
I’ve been desperate, motivated, and willing to do anything and everything to get pregnant myself.
Don’t Let Past Infertility Issues Define Your Future
So many couples come to me convinced that they cannot have a child of their own. They’ve tried for years with no success. They’ve seen doctors and specialists who diagnosed them with “unexplained infertility” and could not explain why they can’t conceive. That’s not an answer you should settle for. You will never hear the word “infertile” from me. “Unknown infertility” will not be your story.

What Our Patients Are Saying
“When seeking treatment for infertility, having a compassionate medical partner is key. The amount of shame and pain women experience when struggling to conceive is often overlooked by medical professionals, as they push one fertility treatment after the next, only contributing to the pain when you can’t even make those work.
After 10 years of battling infertility and irregular periods, I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting Alicia McCubbins. I knew right away I had met a soul sister, friend, and someone who could help me. While speaking to her about just getting my cycles regular (the dream of having a child had long since passed) to ward off the increased risk of ovarian cancer, she mentioned she bet she could get me pregnant. After I was done laughing, I told her I would simply be happy having a period.
This was the beginning of March 2013. In April, I started the regimen prescribed by Dr. McCubbins, and by the end of July I heard the words I had longed to hear for years, “you are pregnant!” My pregnancy was not an easy one, and was filled with many scares, but Dr. McCubbins supported me the whole way, both medically and emotionally.
I honestly feel without this holistic support, fear would have taken over, and my story may not have ended well. Instead, today I prepare to celebrate the 5th birthday of my miracle boy on April 9th. I cannot recommend the services of Dr. McCubbins enough. Her knowledge, compassion, and friendship took the shame out of infertility, and turned it into a hoop we could jump through together. Five years later, we still refer to our joy, Uriah, as the boy that love and Alicia made!” – Emily, 37 years old at the time of conception
“I have been a patient of Dr. McCubbins for a few years. I have met her in person on several occasions for appointments in her office and recently had the opportunity of a telemedicine appointment. I was unsure what to expect about an appointment using the computer; and I would say that that the appointment felt just as effective as coming into her office. I felt like she was thorough and the quality of service was exceptional as always.
Dr. McCubbins was extremely helpful in supporting me through my journey of having a baby. I had struggled to keep a pregnancy for several years before I started seeing her. She was recommended to me under the title of “The Baby Whisperer” and after we started working together I was able to give birth to a healthy baby boy. I appreciate that she comes with so much knowledge but also takes her time to think about what would be the best course of treatment for me. I would highly recommend Dr. McCubbins for her expertise in person or through telemedicine.”- Erin, 41 years old at the time of conception
“I met Dr. Alicia when I was trying to get pregnant with my first child, and had been trying for a year with no luck. I was diagnosed with PCOS and was told by my obgyn I wouldn’t be able to conceive without prescription medication. Luckily I found Dr. Alicia who is so knowledgeable about all aspects of what my body needed to get pregnant. She was so caring and helped guide me with nutrition, natural supplements, and exercise. Within 4 months I was pregnant with my beautiful healthy daughter, who’s now 5!” – Bonnie, 26 years old at the time of conception
“When I first went to Dr. Alicia, I wasn’t sure I was even able to get pregnant. A few years later, I have a two-year-old and another baby on the way. She took a different approach each time I was trying to conceive and tailored my treatment plans to fit my current life. I so appreciate that she keeps up on the latest research and is always full of suggestions to improve my overall health, including fertility.” – Amber, 33 and 35 years old at the time of conception
“We were blessed to have a beautiful baby girl, but due to some minor issues in conceiving her, we decided to start trying for Baby #2 when my first-born was 11 months old. We tried for a year, but it just wasn’t happening for us. I worked with my OB and tried single, double, and triple doses of both Clomid and Letrozole with no luck. My cycles were getting further apart and were completely unpredictable.
My OB deemed me infertile and sent me to a Fertility Specialist. After meeting with them and doing lots of blood work, we realized there was no way we could afford to go that route. We were left feeling utterly defeated and depressed. We began to wonder if our daughter would be an only child. At that time, a coworker referred me to Dr. Alicia.
I reached out to her and she took on the huge task of figuring out what was happening with my body. I never met her in person. We only chatted over the phone. However, as we chatted each month, we noticed that my body seemed to be responding in a very positive way to the supplements and dietary guidelines she prescribed for me. I followed her advice and went to my OB for an ultrasound of my ovaries. Those results, paired with results from a saliva hormone test, told us that I had Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. This is what we suspected all along, but now it was confirmed.
She was able to balance out my crazy hormone levels and month 7 of working with her, I found out I was pregnant! I now have a healthy, happy son! I don’t believe I would have been able to get to this point without Dr. Alicia. I am forever grateful that I found my way to her! She is caring and compassionate. She is easy to talk to and listens to you. She doesn’t just put a bandaid over your issues. She gets to root cause and helps heal your body and get you back to baseline. I have referred so many couples to her for help with infertility because I truly believe in her and her treatment methods. My family and I are truly blessed, and we owe so much to Dr. Alicia! ❤️” – Kristi, 34 years old at the time of conception
What is functional medicine?
Tired of being dismissed by your physician? Told your symptoms have no explanation? Being prescribed pharmaceuticals for every symptom? You know this isn’t helpful and so do we. Enter functional medicine.
How will I see my doctor?
All our consultations are done over video visits (much like FaceTime or Skype). We respect your time. There is no need for you to drive long distances, interact with multiple clinic staff, and sit in a crowded waiting room.
The most important skill that functional medicine physicians have to uncover the underlying root causes of your health problem is their ability to listen, and this can be conveniently completed via video visits.
In order to keep our price for care as low as possible, we forgo those crowded waiting rooms and multiple staff.
Another perk of video visits is that you get living-room access to experts from across the country who have years of experience helping people, just like you, regain their energy, improve their sleep, get rid of their brain fog, lose weight, and feel healthy! If your physician believes you need to be seen in person for an exam, they will help you arrange for this form of care.
Is Vytal Health covered by insurance?
No. Happily, no. We believe it is important to work for our patients, not for their insurance companies. We forgo insurance payments in order to save you from the arbitrary, intrusive decisions that inevitably follow with insurance companies.We believe doctors and patients should be in charge of health care decisions, not money hungry insurance companies.
How soon will I see results?
