Pillar Healthcare was established in September 2012 with a clear proposal. The proposal as outlined by Pillar’s founder, Mark Whitney, was to design and create a nutritional formulation that could be clinically shown to normalise fertility parameters in men and women. Over a three year period, making reference to over six thousand published materials, the nutritional supplement ‘pre-Conceive’ was formulated. pre-Conceive was independently examined in a landmark study for Europe. The Lead Researcher’s Conclusion, which featured in national and international press stated:
“pre-Conceive combined with nutritional advice improves the levels of key fertility and nutritional parameters, though a larger study is required to validate if pre-Conceive can improve overall fertility in patients.”
Pillar Healthcare is now operating across three continents. Pillar Healthcare’s pre-Conceive has helped countless couples conceive all across the world, both as a viable alternative to assisted reproductive procedures as well as a conjunctive aid to the procedures.
Over the past sixty years, there has been a dramatic decrease in total fertility rates and individual fertility parameters in both the developed and developing world. At Pillar, the couple always comes first. Our core value is to provide both answers and pragmatic solutions to their questions. In our constant effort to improve our company, Pillar Healthcare’s Board of Directors are delighted to appoint Dr. Ning Qu as our Medical Advisor. The Board and the team at Pillar are honoured to work with a gentleman and doctor of Dr. Qu’s stature. Pillar Healthcare believe in providing the most up-to-date and accurate information to the public and its stakeholders. Dr. Qu’s principles and beliefs adhere to our own and this is exemplified through his distinguished career. The Board and Pillar’s Founder, Mark Whitney, believe that all those associated with the company, in whatever capacity, should take great confidence in this appointment.
Ning Qu completed his medical education at the China Medical University in 1991. He received his specialist training in Cardiothoracic Surgery at the Shanghai Chest Hospital and the University Medical Center, Groningen.
