Are you tired of feeling completely helpless when it comes to your fertility? Are you staring down the road of medications and their side effects? Overwhelmed by the emotional and physical burden, relationship strain, and/or financial burden caused by infertility? Are you struggling to make sense of all the conflicting information and advice out there on getting pregnant? Are you emotionally exhausted from tracking ovulation, crying over negative pregnancy tests, and wondering if you will ever have a baby of your own?
Today more and more women are experiencing the pain of infertility. They are searching far and wide for treatments to help them conceive and carry to term. Most women are unaware that infertility can stem from an issue within the nervous system. The nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord: It's our body's master control system. Fertility health, conception and birth all require a properly functioning nervous system. Nerves transmit impulses and sensations to every part of the body, allowing them function optimally. The nerves that innervate our reproductive organs pass through the spine. Fertility can be affected if there’s an imbalance in the bony structures of the back and pelvis: These misalignments can interfere with the delicate nerve impulses going to the ovaries and uterus. Spinal and nervous system imbalances can also affect the body systems that coordinate the delivery of hormones, preventing their normal function and contributing to hormone imbalance. According to the American Pregnancy Association, “In many cases, fertility issues may be associated with improper nervous system function, poor nutrition, high stress and poor lifestyle habits."
Chiropractors are nervous system specialists and reducing interference in the nervous system is their primary goal. Chiropractic adjustments remove any interference between the nervous system and the rest of the body. A healthy nervous system promotes reproductive function! Chiropractors trained in fertility work also help to balance the bony pelvis and pelvic floor muscles so that your body is in the optimal position to conceive, carry and deliver a baby.
Chiropractic is a safe and economical alternative to traditional medicine, as it focuses on whole body wellness. While chiropractic care does not treat infertility; it does help to establish a healthy connection via the chemical messengers (hormones) in the body so that your body can do what it was made to do, which is conceiving and delivering a healthy baby!
Natural methods are easier on the body, less expensive, and less invasive. In addition, these treatments can be applied prior to and during conventional options such as IVF.
