The Healing Power of the Body
We fix the problems you have and the problems you didn't even know you have.
After 31 years in practice I never cease to be amazed when I witness the above chiropractic saying come to fruition.
The featured patients of this post are two females, both in their late 30’s, who came to my office with a spinal complaint. I treated them in my usual manner by finding the areas in their spine that were subluxated (misaligned) and proceeded to release the physical and /or emotional stress that produced the problem(s). Both patients responded well within the first month of care; they were pain free. During their subsequent stage of care I started to reduce their frequency of visits during the week so that their condition would continue to stabilize. A few months later both patients reported to me that they were pregnant. Neither one of them had mentioned it to me, but they revealed then that they had experienced issues with infertility, and had both given up on the idea of having children. My sole intent was to align the spine and remove any nerve interference, but I always tell my patients to never underestimate the healing power of the human body. When subluxations are corrected, the body functions at a higher potential.
Health Tips To Optimize Natural Fertility
Highest pregnancy rates are seen when a couple has intercourse 1-2 days during the fertile window (the 6 day interval ending on the day of ovulation). A woman with a 28 day cycle will ovulate around day 14.
Reduce stress. Stress is the #1 contributing factor to infertility. High adrenalin levels are associated with infertility.
Avoid smoking, alcohol, caffeine and drugs.
Avoid the two most common allergens. There is a link between food intolerances and anti-sperm antibodies. Women with multiple food allergies and food intolerances are more likely to miscarry. The two most widely spread food intolerances are gluten and dairy.
Aim to eat fresh quality foods and eat from scratch. Eating well means that your blood sugar levels will be more balanced which will also allow your hormones to balance out as well. Both partners should aim for diets rich in antioxidants which include vitamin C, E, Zinc, selenium and Folic acid. Sources of vitamin C and E include citrus fruits and nuts, while zinc is found in meat and pumpkin seeds. Brazil nuts and eggs are rich in selenium and sources of folic acid include green leafy vegetables and whole grains.
Of course, don't forget your regular chiropractic adjustment!
