The Story of Felopio is the Story of our Family

Just Married The story of Felopio is our story and the story of the women and couples this powerful treatment has helped over the years. It can be part of your success story too.

It started when our parents first met and got married in 1968. Like many married couples they couldn’t wait to have little ones. As the months passed, with no progress, our mother, Maria, went to a reproductive specialist to see what was wrong. The tests revealed her fallopian tubes were blocked. In those days, long before IVF ever existed, this meant an end to their family dreams. Needless to say, she was absolutely heartbroken. The doctor had told them there was no solution and they should look into adoption.

Anecdotally, dad was totally fine with not having kids and we could hardly blame him with all the headaches us two boys caused him over the years, but mother would not have it any other way. She never believed what this doctor had told her and instead embarked on a journey to find a solution for her problem. She graduated from university with a degree in Chemical Engineering and together with our grandfather (her father-in-law) started working on a cure. Our grandpa was a classically trained MD who made extensive use of herbs and plants in his practice. He was a prolific healer. Loved by many. In our mother’s words:

“He (Grandpa) had a few herbs in mind. They had antiseptic, antibacterial, and tissue softening properties, and increased blood circulation. I started drinking those in a variety of herbal concoctions. We tried and tried for months and nothing worked. It was around this time, when we first started thinking that we must try getting the herbs closer to the troubled area (the reproductive tract).

So, next, there I was, sitting over a boiling pot of herbs for days, with a blanket around my waist to keep the vapours going where they should. This was excruciatingly painful. I had blisters all over my behind and thighs. Several years had gone by and I was starting to lose all hope. I kept on going because I could not stop after all I (we) had gone through. I was simply obsessed with the idea of having my own children. I would literally sleep on my tummy all the time.

It was one of those nights when I thought “Why don’t I put the herbs directly in me?” This idea was absolutely liberating to me. The thought of not having to suffer from the heat of the boiling vapours is when the very notion of herbal tampons came into existence. We tried it, (together with the flushes, because of the soothing properties of chamomile) with the exact same herbs he had in mind all along, and not long after, our prayers were answered when I conceived and successfully delivered my first son (Nedo) into this world.”
It took years of trial and error, pain and disappointment, but it was in those trying years this amazing herbal mixture and tampon method came into existence.

Us3 years and 9 months after my brother was born, I (Michael) came into my parents' life. Not a daughter, as mother had hoped for, but another boy. Life took its course. Birthdays, first days of school, moving to beautiful Canada, graduations, and all the other moments that make life the magical experience it is.

It was not until late 2003 when we started talking about making this miracle available to the world. We called it Felopio. That was more than 15 years ago. We have never looked back and we are grateful to be helping hundreds of couples out of the pain and despair that our parents went through in their youth. It has not always been easy, but we could not have asked for a more worthy and rewarding way of making a living. Helping others to the miracle of life. This is our story, this is the story of Felopio. We sincerely hope that you understand your situation is far from hopeless and Felopio can allow you to start a new chapter of your own family story.

With love, from our family to yours,

Maria, Kris, Nedo and Michael
The Felopio family
