Tips To Boost Fertility Naturally

cropped-pregnancy.png

Hi All,

We specialise in fertility work with clients and all too often i find clients seem  confused about what they can do to boost their fertility so i thought i would write this blog to help anyone who needs some basic info to help understand the importance of good nutrition and how this can significantly boost fertility.
Here is some information which you can take on board to boost your fertility naturally.

Good Fertility foods include :
1. Eat  whole,  unprocessed  foods. Avoid all pre packaged , microwave foods.
2. Eat meats,  poultry  and  eggs  from organic pasture fed  animals and  wild  fish  (not  farmed)  and  shellfish  from  unpolluted  waters.  Never factory farmed product.
3. Reduce stress from your life, practice meditation, alternative natural therapies and yoga which will prepare your body for pregnancy.
4. Eat  full fat organic milk  products  from  pasture fed  cows,  preferably  raw  and/or  fermented,  such  as  raw   milk,  whole  yogurt,  kefir,  cultured  butter,  whole  raw  cheeses  and  fresh  and  sour  cream.   (Imported  cheeses  that  say  “milk”  or  “fresh  milk”  on  the  label  are  raw.)  Avoid  processed,  pasteurized  milk; low-fat   milk,  skim  milk,  powdered  milk etc.
5. Use  animal  fats,  especially  butter,  liberally.  Never use margarine.
6. Use  traditional  vegetable  oils  only (extra  virgin  olive  oil, sesame  oil,  coconut  oil).
7. Take  cod  liver  oil  regularly  to  provide  at  least  10,000  IU  vitamin  A  and  1,000  IU  vitamin  D  per   day.     8. Eat  fresh organic fruits  and  vegetables , if you cannot get organic then ensure the product has been left to rinse in lemon juice and water for about 15-20mins and then rinse again.
9. Use himalayan salt only as it is a good source of mineral content.
10. NEVER eat products that contain any ASPARTAME,acesulfame K, neotame, saccharin, sucralose , all of these are artificial sweetners (brand names sweet n low, Splenda, NutraSweet, and Equa etc). Use  natural  sweeteners  in  moderation,  such  as raw  honey,  maple  syrup, coconut sugar or stevia  powder.
11. Cook  only  in  stainless  steel,  cast  iron,  glass  or  good  quality  enamel. NEVER aluminium.
12. Get  plenty  of  sleep,  exercise  and  natural  light to increase your D3 which will increase your immunity.
13. Avoid  products  containing  protein  powders  as  they  usually  contain  carcinogens  formed  during   processing;  and  consumption  of  protein  without  the  cofactors  occurring  in  nature  can  lead  to   deficiencies,  especially  of  vitamin .
15. Avoid  artificial  food  additives,  especially  MSG,  hydrolyzed  vegetable  protein  and  aspartame,   which  are  neurotoxins.  Most  soups,  sauce  and  broth  mixes  and  most  commercial  condiments   contain  MSG,  even  if  not  indicated  on  the  label.
16. Avoid Soya which are  high  in  phytates,  contain  enzyme  inhibitors , and is a hormone  disrupter.

When buying food, eating local, organic or growing your own vegetables really  is the best option as it helps to decrease the exposure to pesticides and increases the nutritional value.
80% of your food should be healthy options and then 20% of the time, allow yourself treats.

Mealtimes should not be more than 4 hours between meals (or good quality snacks to keep you going between meals), to keep insulin levels even and hormonal levels balanced.
Taking time to sit down to eat and relax with food and chewing food well, until it is liquid helps with digestion.

Fertility Reflexology – Improve your chances of having a baby.

Fertility Reflexology – Improve your chances of having a baby.

Fertility Reflexology – Improve your chances of having a baby.

Fertility Reflexology can be extremely beneficial to aid fertility.  In fact here at Peace Of Mind Health our success rates are far higher than the government statistics for IVF which quote just 32% for for under 35yr olds. Our success rate is double that for last year.
A fertility specialist and Clinical Reflexologist will be able to work the reflex points of the endocrine system in a very specific order to send the signals to the brain which will then send communication signals to the hormonal system for positively re-balancing the organs and systems within the body.
The process also aligns the meridians (energy pathways), by either adding more “chi” or reducing excess “chi” to the relevant meridians (energy pathways) thus allowing the flow of energy to go exactly where it is needed.

There are many points on the feet that correspond with the reproductive system in the body, and by working these in a very specific order the imbalances which lead to infertility can then be corrected therefore significantly increasing your chances of having a baby.

I work with clients to help balance a number of issues which can prevent fertility. Here are some of the issues we can help you with :
~Hormonal Imbalances.
~PMS.
~Inconsistent cycle.
~Lazy Ovaries.
~PCOS.
~Endometriosis.
~Cervical Issues.
~Stress.
~Fear / Anxiety blocks.

Stress , fear and anxiety blocks although these are emotionally based issues they can have a huge impact on fertility and i work with clients to help the emotional blocks which can negatively affect your ability to conceive.

If you are already looking at IVF, ICSI or another method of assisted conception then Clincal Reflexology will also support you and add more benefit to this process too by allowing your body to be as bananced as possible , and also supporting you with emotional support allowing your body and mind to be wonderfully balanced for a positive outcome.

If you are undergoing tests to find out the cause of infertility, need to undertake a course of fertility drugs, or are embarking on assisted conception such as IVF, ICSI, GIFT, or ZIFT, reflexology can actually be of great help to you. This is because it is a supporting or complementary therapy, and as such, will not harm the treatments you are undergoing or take the place of them. The reflexology can support your body physically, but just as importantly, it will give you needed mental support, giving you the strength and positivity that you need in order to stave off anxiety and give the treatment the best possible chance of succeeding.

Here at Peace of Mind Health we are also trained in Emotional Coaching, Hypnotherapy and Nutrition so we can support our clients with all aspects of mind, body and energy for balance. .

How to Increase Your Chances Of Having a Baby ……Naturally!

How to Increase Your Chances Of Having a Baby ……Naturally!

Preparing for your baby before your pregnancy is like preparing your garden to receive a beautiful flower during the summer. If you prepare your body , your mind and your energy  then you will have a healthy foundation for giving that beautiful seed of life the best chance!

It is crucial to support your endocrine system as this is responsible for the reproductive health and also to ensure you have good nutrients for cell growth.  Taking stress out of your life at this stage is also very important.

I always think it is important to remember that egg health is a cycle that begins 90 days before ovulation , so this is the key time when what you eat, absorb, digest, and hold onto on an emotional level will impact on the health of that egg. You know that old saying you are what you eat….well you are what you eat and absorb (both physically, energetically  and emotionally) …really do start that de-stress and harmonising health plan now.

Cleanse your system of toxins, chemicals, processed foods etc. Ensure you are taking the right minerals and vitamins if you cannot get it all from your food. Think organic, remove ALL cows milk in ALL forms and ALL meat from your diet unless organic as you will be ingesting growth hormones and antibiotic residues. Drink purified water wherever possible too.

Look at complementary health to support you on your wonderful journey. CAM’s such as Clinical Reflexology ,  Clinical Hypnotherapy and E.F.T  can increase success rates by up to 55% scientific studies have found (see my fertility enhancement page on this website for resources of that information). In comparison the figures for IVF success rates are < 32% (and decrease with age stats). Mind / Body therapies use the power of thoughts / feelings  to influence physical harmony and balance.  E.F.T is energy psychology work which uses the same energy pathways  as used in acupuncture (meridians). As negative emotions which have been trapped running around in the body are released the client often feels much more balanced and lighter about the situation.

A specialist clinical reflexologist will work to stimulate your uterine and egg health and ensure you are having a healthy cycle to clear out old toxins and improve function and improve circulation which encourages cell rejuvination. Also you will find the lymphatic system can also work alongside the endocrine system to balance hormonal health . Your stress levels will also be helped through this process as the treatments are extremely relaxing.

Here at Peace of Mind Health we are  also trained in nutrition so council my clients with sound advise on vitamin, minerals and good food choices.

IVF Counseling

Generally when you begin your IVF journey you will be put in touch with a counselor who specializes in counseling prior and during IVF. Take advantage of this opportunity and go for it. Speaking to a counselor could help fill that gap of support that sometimes friends and family are not able to fill or understand.

 

How Clinical Reflexology can help you to have a baby……….

Many people ask me how clinical reflexology can help women who are trying for a baby.

Firstly Reflexology is a natural, non-invasive and balancing therapy which uses pressure points, nerve and energy pathways which communicate with corresponding organs and systems within the body. The hormonal system is balanced and it also de stresses and promotes harmony and wellbeing  which in itself can be hugely beneficial for getting the body in balance and ready for trying for a baby.

Scientific research into the field of complementary healthcare indicates that up to 50% of women who add complementary healthcare to their routine whilst preparing for having a baby  find themselves pregnant within six months. In my own practice i can certainly report on the effectiveness and success stories so far…what an absolute joy to be a part of such a wonderful time.

Whilst Reflexology and CAM brings the body into its best health we also recognise how emotional and stressful this journey can be for many  couples. We are also able to support you in addressing  the emotional aspect of how you are feeling about fertility issues.

Once you are pregnant Reflexology is also wonderful to keep you balanced throughout the pregnancy and baby loves the sessions too!  What a wonderful way for baby to grow and feel through his or her senses this experience of such a relaxing and calming introduction to life! If you want a chilled out baby this is for you!

Some of the common issues such as water retention , acid reflux, constipation , sleep , stress nausea etc can all be worked through at this time and when the time comes reflexology can bring also help to on the labour for them (however if it’s not time for the baby to budge then baby will not come!).

I have had specialist training in Fertility and Maternity Enhancement Reflexology and even from my own successes it is clear to how important this specialist training has been from my own results.  In fact research has stated that the results improve by up to 50% with the help of a specialist.

In addition to this my Fertility enhancement programme is wonderful as i am able to help clients unblock fears and limiting beliefs through using visualisation and reframing techniques which,  along side Clinical Reflexology helps my clients prepare the body for a wonderful natural journey bringing the body and mind into alignment and giving them the best chances of natural conception.

Reflexology can assist with conception by helping to reduce toxin levels, improve hormone and reproductive function, reduce stress and by generally balancing all bodily systems to create optimum conditions for conception. Ideally both the man and the woman should be treated although this is not essential.

Reflexology can form an integral part of a preconception care programme, along with exercise, a healthy diet and good nutrition, ensuring both parents are at their optimum health to conceive. Ideally a preconception programme and reflexology should commence four months prior to a planned conception.

The effect of stress on subfertility has become a widely recognised issue; reflexology can be especially useful in these situations as it is incredibly relaxing and stress reducing.

The treatment I give involves a holistic approach, working all areas of the body to encourage and promote balance, with an emphasis on relaxation and stress reduction. The endocrine and reproductive systems receive additional attention to help balance and promote their functioning. Further emphasis is given to the pelvic and lumbar-sacral spine to reduce congestion and to any areas specific to the client. I also incorporate some Ayurvedic and Acupressure techniques into my treatments. The amount of focus on particular reflexes will be determinded by where you are in your menstrual cycle. My treatments also include discussions involving how to identify your most fertile time in your cycle and other advice to maximise your chance of conception.

There are other complementary therapies that are also effective in helping couples concieve, however, the majority of my clients claim that reflexology is the most enjoyable of all the therapies they try!!!
