27 Feb Fertility and Kinesiology
Kinesiology is a non-invasive therapy that looks at the physical and emotional factors that are contributing to a couple’s difficulty in conceiving. Kinesiology works by aiding the body’s innate ability to restore the systems (hormonal and reproductive) back to homeostasis so they can function as intended.
STRESS AND FERTILITY
Studies conducted between 1982 and 2012 have shown that difficulties conceiving has a negative impact on the quality of life of those experiencing this; that is, they are less satisfied with life and more stressed than the rest of the population, which can lead to other negative effects such as depression and anxiety.
In Western society, it is recorded that the number of women and couples experiencing difficulties conceiving has been increasing; meaning that there are also increasing numbers of women with emotional and physical health implications as a result.
Researchers began looking further into the relationship between stress and conceiving difficulties and found that stress can be attributed to the cause of infertility in up to 30% of cases, showing that women with higher stress ovulated 20% less than their stress free counter parts.
Kinesiology can help with this stress.
The good news is that there are other options.
Kinesiology supports your ongoing development and growth in these areas. It can also work to support the mothers’ body in maintaining her pregnancy and carrying a baby to term.
I have done my own research in this area and saw very positive effects using Kinesiology. Women who had experienced agonising periods since they began menstruation in adolescence, no longer required pain relief during “that time of the month”. They began experiencing ‘regular’ monthly periods, their mood changed, and they felt more at ease in themselves. Some were even able to conceive and carry their pregnancy to term.
Kinesiology can be used to support your journey as soon as you start to think of trying for a baby, however, it can also be used for a variety of other hormonal conditions that you had previously been advised you just needed to “live with” such as PCOS.
Kinesiology combined with nutritional advice can have overwhelmingly positive effects in the area of hormonal health.
