For those suffering from infertility, it’s a bleak life ahead. The rigorous treatment methods, medications, endless test reports and the final verdict that there is no hope are extremely traumatizing for men as well as women, more so for women as they have a stronger connection with the baby.
While you try all the medical methods for becoming fertile, it would also be a good idea to explore the natural treatment methods that are available as well for treating infertility. Mentioned below are some of the best ways by which you can attain fertility naturally.
1. Exercise and Diet
Many a time, obesity can cause infertility. Obesity leads to over production of estrogen hormone which shifts the fertility cycle and throws everything off balance. Therefore, if you feel that you are overweight, the first step towards fertility is to incorporate some exercise regimes into your schedule. Half an hour of cardiovascular exercise every day will help you burn the extra fat that you have packed on in your body. However, exercise must be done only in moderation as too much exercise can also cause imbalance in sex hormones and lead to infertility.
Coming to diet, it is important to be on a diet that is low on fat, but high on all the essential vitamins and nutrients. Particular emphasis has to be given to include food that contains folic acid, vitamin C and E, zinc, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin B 12 and 6 which are all essential for the proper functioning of reproductive system.
The traditional Chinese method of treatment is famed for its efficacy in treating a number of diseases and disorders of the body. The method of acupuncture involves inserting needles in specific parts of the body for unblocking energy. The use of acupuncture in infertility is that it can increase the flow of blood to reproductive organs. This is especially beneficial for men who suffer from erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.
Blood circulation to the reproductive organs also helps in increasing the production of hormones and regulates the process of ovulation in women, both of which are extremely vital for fertility.
Yoga poses are well streamlined and many of these poses improve blood circulation to the reproductive organs and align the spine. These poses are also good for strengthening core muscles required for reproduction and conception.
Practicing yoga reduces stress as well which is a major factor that causes infertility. Stress hormones released during stress can lead to a compromised immunity as well which makes it difficult to conceive.
Chiropractics concentrate on spine alignment and related disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Seeking the advice of a chiropractor will help in increasing blood circulation as the reproductive system has nerves that are well connected with the spinal cord.
When the alignment of these nerves is not proper, infertility and hormonal imbalance can happen. A few sessions with a registered practitioner will help you deal with the misalignment of nerves and spine and improve your chances of becoming fertile.
