About 10 percent of reproductive age couples have trouble getting pregnant. Many women are waiting to have children later in life due to building their own careers or taking more time before tying the knot. After the age of 35, the decline in fertility starts to accelerate, which largely depends on the stressful lifestyle. These types of lifestyles cause a woman’s body to shut down as a means of survival.
Eating a balanced and nutritious diet
is important and it varies from one person to the next. Reducing deficiencies through healthy diets may be by increasing the amount of essential fatty acids in the diets, more leafy greens and less caffeine. Consulting with your holistic physician and/or nutritionist is important to help manage your dietary habits.
Reducing the amount of physical, chemical and emotional stress
is an important part of the puzzle when it comes to fertility. Women have a tendency to be hard on themselves, often overlooking that it is crucial to nurture and care for the body, mind and spirit, in order to care for another. The process of fertility treatments can be scary, overwhelming and stressful, especially if the body is not responding the way we anticipate.
Yoga offer a complimentary alternative care method for connecting the body and the spirit. Finding a calm, centering place allows one to slow down, breathe
and be kind
to ourselves. It may be difficult to force the body to always do things biologically, but working on how to react to certain life circumstances and upsetting processes and experiences. Being gentle while approaching a yoga practice is important, especially for women going through treatments or trying to get pregnant strenuous exercise is usually not the best.
Benefits of yoga:
- Blood flowing to key areas in the body, such as the pelvis
- Opens up the lungs for more oxygen and energy flow
- Stretches the hips, waist, and back for better posture and stability
- Building strength, stamina, flexibility and security
- Deeply soothes and relaxes the whole system
- Aligning the energy from inside and out
- Create a community and relationship with others
Chiropractic aids in correcting body’s imbalances, evident in misalignments and overcompensations in posture. The presence of these misalignments, vertebral subluxation, will interfere with the nervous system’s ability to communicate with the body through distorted brain messages.
The spinal compensations
resulting from the subluxation may result in distorted pelvic positioning, causing the baby to get into an unfavorable position for birth, possibly breech. The nerve pressure and tension caused by the spinal compensations in the spine may lead to improper signals to be sent to various organs and tissues, such as the heart and lungs in the mid-thoracic region; kidney and liver in lower-thoracic and lumbar regions; and unfavorable uterus in the lower-lumbar and sacral region. This tension or pressure will interfere with the brain stem’s ability to coordinate the messages being sent to the body by the brain and with proper distribution of hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone.
Allowing the nervous system to meet its challenges with less overall stress will be able to improve the chances of conception naturally. Improving health and well-being from inside out through nutrition, yoga, and chiropractic will help you make strides and prepare the body for the New Life.
