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. .

10 Tips for good foot health

10 Tips for good foot health

Some common complaints to be aware of to ensure that your feet are in good health include : –

1. Heel Pain – commonly this can be caused by  plantar fasciitis, inflammation at the point  where the ligament attaches to the bone. The pain may be sharpest when you first wake up and put pressure on the foot. Other causes of heel pain include  poor fitting footwear, tendonitis, arthritis, heel or bone spurs.

2. Cold Feet – this may have more insights into your overall health than you initially think. Cold feet is often because of poor blood flow which is a circulatory problem which can be a result of  smoking, high or low blood pressure, or heart disease. Also this can be a clue to Diabetes as nerve damage of uncontrolled diabetes can also make your feet cold. Other possible causes include hypothyroidism and anemia.

3. Pain in the Big Toe – The most common cause of this is Gout which gives sudden pain in the big toe joint, along with redness and swelling. Osteoarthritis also causes pain and swelling and rigid joints.

4. Swollen Feet –  May be a number of factors here including poor circulation, impaired lymphatic system, or even a blood clot. A kidney disorder or poor kidney health or underactive thyroid can also cause swelling to the feet. physician.

5. Burning Feet – A burning sensation in the feet is common among diabetics with peripheral nerve damage. It can also be caused by a vitamin B deficiency, athlete’s foot, chronic kidney disease, poor circulation in the legs and feet (peripheral arterial disease), or hypothyroidism.

6. Itchy Feet – may be down to a fungal infection called  athlete’s foot or even a reaction to chemicals or even an auto immune condition such as psoriasis or eczema.

7. Sores That Don’t Heal – a major warning sign here for diabetes. Diabetes can impair sensation in the feet, circulation, and normal wound healing, so even a blister can become a troublesome wound. Those sores also are prone to infection. Diabetics should wash and dry their feet and check them for any wounds every day. Slow-healing of sores also can be caused by poor circulation from conditions such as peripheral artery disease.

8. Yellow Toenails – A fungal infection often causes thickened yellow toenails however it also can be a sign of an underlying disease, including lymphedema (swelling related to the lymphatic system), lung problems, or rheumatoid arthritis.

9. White Nails – may be due to an injury, nail infection, or psoriasis however, If the nail is intact and most of it is white, it can sometimes be a sign of a more serious condition including liver disease, congestive heart failure, or even  diabetes.

10. Foot Spasms –  A sudden, sharp pain in the foot is the hallmark of a muscle spasm or cramp but can also be signs of sciatic issues. Poor circulation, dehydration, or imbalances in potassium, magnesium, calcium, or vitamin D may also be a contributing factor,

 

 

 

Treating Lymphoedema and Oedema naturally.

What is Lymphoedema ?
Lymphoedema is excess of lymph fluid building up as a result of a poorly functioning lymphatic system and is most commonly seen an arm or a leg.  If the lymphatic system is not functioning properly then immunity will also be affected as this system is all about immunity as it is responsible for cleaning away toxins, bacteria, proteins and maintaining correct fluid balance within the body.   You may notice at times, your lymph glands become more sensitive or swollen around the neck, under arms and in the groin region. If so this is a sure sign that your lymphatic system is under pressure.

Over time , if the lymphatic system is not working correctly,  fluid in the body builds up and swelling which looks like water retention occurs.

Lymphoedema can be primary or secondary.

Primary – usually  from birth and arises due to some failure of the lymphatic system itself – and  It may develop without any obvious cause at different stages in life, and can be heightened more so in teenage years as the body develops.
Secondary  –  is the result of a trauma, injury, reduced mobility, radiotherapy or surgery.  In particular lymph nodes are very often removed after many cancer treatment’s . Secondary Lymhoedema is common after breast cancer surgery and radiotherapy.

What can be done to help with Lymhoedema  ?

Elastic compression garments are commonly recommended along with manual lymphatic drainage to help the lymphatic system back to balance.

We have trained in RLD (Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage) , this is an award winning technique which is being used within the NHS as it has proven results for Lymphoedema. We are also excited that this technique is proving extremely successful with auto immune disorders too.

Detoxifying the body for long term health

We live in a world where we cannot avoid toxins and pollution. It is in the food we eat, the packaging of the food we buy, the water and the air around us. Often we get a build up of toxins within the physical body which can have an impact on immunity, how we struggle to release excess weight, hormonal issues, fatigue and just to maintain good overall health and prevention of illness.

If we are in good health our body can process and eliminate most of the toxins around us, but over time the body can become overloaded and may struggle to do this work efficiently for us.

Key organs and systems within the body for  detoxification include the gastrointestinal system, lymphatic system, kidneys, bladder, lungs and the skin.

Toxins can overload the detoxification organs and when we start to get  congestion in the lymphatic system , this is when we get thickened lymph which may cause pain and discomfort as sacks of fluid accumulates in the nodes without being emptied into the blood for removal from the body. This congestion can then lead to other blocks in the liver and then into the intestines which may cause  constipation along with liver dysfunction.

Unable to properly remove the toxins causes many health problems such as:
Poor digestion

Weight gain or unable to shift weight easily

Constipation

Bloating

Allergies or food sensitivities

Re-occuring tonsilits

Sinusitis

Low immunity

Skin problems (such as eczema, acne, hives, itching and rashes)

Diabetes

Headaches

Mineral deficiency (key for weigh loss)

Hormonal imbalances
In order to start to  address these issues it is important that the body is balanced through the the detoxification system as well as ALL other areas of the body . A balanced holistic approach with health and nutrition are key and balancing the systems through Clinical Reflexology or Kinesiology alongside a healthy nutritional support system to help you back into balance are vital for a long term healthy body.

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!).

Tips for Good Digestive Health – Reflexology

The digestive system is key to our overall health and wellbeing. If our digestion is not balanced then we may be missing in vital nutrients the body needs to stay healthy.

It is said that the gut is the 2nd brain, in fact 95% of the body’s serotonin is found in the bowels so if we have a healthy digestion then our mood naturally improves and we will be happier!!

My Clinical Reflexology is well established for both Fertility and Digestive disorders thanks to the exceptional training i received in these fields. Reflexology is wonderful in helping the body heal from the inside out and  there are specific reflexes and also meridian’s (energy pathways / acupressure points ) located on the feet which help rebalance the whole digestive system.

Some of the conditions we have amazing results with include ;

IBS

HEARTBURN

INDIGESTION

CONSTIPATION

COLITIS

DIARRHOEA

GASSY / BLOATED DIGESTION

STRESS

You can also aid  your digestive health by  ensuring your fibre exceeds 20-25g/day, drink plenty of filtered water and reducing sugars, processed and acidic foods.

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!!!

How the Thyroid can affect Pregnancy

An under active thyroid is a huge cause of difficulty in becoming pregnant. In fact it is more common than most women realise.
If you are unsure you should speak to your GP for a test. Ask for your results as sometimes the GP will say your result is ‘normal’ and actually you may find you are borderline ?

The thyroid hormones have a number of functions including :

~ Metabolism of Fats, Proteins and Carbs.
~ Impacts on other hormones in the endocrine system (growth hormones, adrenal function, hypothalamus, pituitary etc).
~ Blood pressure regulation.
~ Controlling weight gain.
~ Controlling heart rate.
~ Brain function.
~ Foetal development during pregnancy.
~ Impacts on Immunity.

Here are some signs that your Thyroid may be low :
~Depression
~Irritability
~Fatigue
~ Mind fog or memory loss
~Stubborn weight or weigh gain
~Sluggish digestion
~Dry skin or hair (or thinning hair)
~Feeling cold
~ Goiter
~Muscle cramps
~ Reduced libido
~ Menstrual cycle irregular
~ Difficulty in conceiving

A clinical Reflexologist can also help you rebalance the thyroid and in fact when retested clients see tests improve over time.

Can clinical Reflexology help improve chances of having a baby ?

Can clinical Reflexology help improve chances of having a baby  ? 

A clinical Reflexologist will work on a treatment plan which will give your body the best balance for overall health, de-strssing and generally it is a wonderful complementary therapy.

I have specialist training within the field of Pregnancy, maternity and have seen countless cases  during my years in this field.  Reflexology can be such a wonderful aid to many of my clients for both preparing the body for having a baby and then throughout the pregnancy itself so you and baby blossom into good health and ease of labour together!

We can work within your cycles for preparation for you to conceive and our aim is to also  improve your egg health for fertility.  Did you know that you need to consider a 90 day period even before an egg is ovulated, as  the eggs are changing and preparing for ovulation. The eggs and the quality  can be affected by stress, nutrition, healthy blood flow and hormonal balance. We help you with all of these things.

 Reflexology is also useful to improve overall body and lymphatic drainage which can impact on how your body releases toxins and also cell regeneration.
