There isn’t a week that goes by that you don’t hear about couples struggling to conceive. Actually about 10 percent of the population today deals with the heartache and struggles of infertility issues. The stress it can put on you and your significant other is exhausting to your body, mentality and overall wellbeing. Let’s not mention exhausting to your bank account when you are forking over $10,000- $20,000 per attempt using In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) just hoping for a successful conception; however, it’s very uncommon for IVF to succeed on the first attempt. Although IVF can be successful for some people, don’t forget there are risks associated with injecting synthetic hormones and drugs in the body to accomplish this process. Abnormalities are more likely to occur using man-made conception versus a national one. This brings me to subject using chiropractic treatments to combat infertility issues.
What does chiropractic do? It reduces and eliminates stress and interference within the body and specifically the nervous system. Recently, infertility specialist have been focusing on just this as a way to solve the infertility puzzle. They are starting to believe that typical reasoning for infertility has nothing to do with the reproductive system at all! Many factors are being contributed from outside the reproductive system.
Although chiropractic is not a cure for infertility; it amazes me how cases of clinically diagnosed infertile women start undergoing chiropractic treatment and suddenly become pregnant. Maybe they starting going because they read something online about how chiropractic may help and they had reached their “I’ll try anything point” or maybe they just went to get their spines adjusted; either way there seems to be a correlation with chiropractic treatment helping these types of cases. Researchers find that chiropractic adjustments contribute to the proper flow of cerebrospinal fluid, which in turn keeps the reproductive structures and glands operating at optimal function. The nerves that function the reproductive organs and the hormonal glands all are situated throughout the spine; therefore, it is not surprising at all that a compromised nerve due to spinal misalignment can lead to infertility issues.
What we can help you with at Optimal Chiropractic:
1. Chiropractic adjustments, specifically of the pelvis and sacrum in order to restore optimal reproductive health. This also positively affects the autonomic nervous system that aids in normalization of the menstrual cycle and ovulation time periods.
2. Nutritional supports for infertility. Proper nutrition and diet is essential in order for a “clinically infertile” female to combat infertility. Your daily food consumption as well as some additional supplementation can definite support a healthy conception. I recommended a few of the Standard Process Supplement line as well as the Medi-Herb Supplements such as Ovex, Symplex F, and Drenamin to help restore your hormonal levels in the thyroid, pituitary, and hypothalamus glands to normal levels.
3. Stress Levels. We have massage therapists on staff every day of the week to help you with this. Don’t forget to make time for yourself, your body, and your health!
