The Secret to Healing Infertility Using an Integrative Healthcare Approach – Part 2
You have tried all conventional and alternative medicine treatments to treat infertility but nothing has worked. You continue to struggle with unexplained fertility. What do you do?
Healing needs to happen in both the body and the mind
Integrative medicine focuses on not only the body but also the mind. The latter is often ignored in the conventional healthcare model and often overlooked by many practitioners of complementary and alternative medicine. For example, if you have pain, it is hard to feel joyful, and if you have negative damaging thoughts for too long, they start to have an impact on the physical body. Conventional science has finally validated what traditional medicine systems have always known i.e. stress has a huge impact on the body.
Conceiving becomes more difficult if you have stress, anxiety, and depression. These thoughts will naturally arise as you continue to fight the fertility battle. You try your best with thoughts of ‘just relax’, or ‘I must be positive’ but then the there are the hidden negative thoughts such as, “the clock is ticking’’, or “why is this happening to me”, or “why can’t I let this go.” These hidden thoughts are from the subconscious mind.
The subconscious mind
The best definition of the subconscious mind comes from Dr Darren Weissman, the eminent Mind-body medicine practitioner who invented the Lifeline Technique. He states, ‘We are unaware of the functions of the subconscious mind, they are below consciousness. The subconscious mind is in charge of all the major body functions ranging from heart rate, blood pressure, immunity, hormone balance, sugar metabolism, detoxification, just to name a few. It’s also where emotions, memories and beliefs are stored that have not been processed and integrated.”
Dealing with the suppressed emotions is the key to healing
When suppressed feelings and emotions are truly expressed, something magical happens. The negativity which has built up over time is released, and this helps both the body and the mind to work at optimal levels, which benefit both physical and mental health.Working through these unresolved emotions from past experiences may have a positive effect on your fertility through your subconscious by creating new neural pathways. There are many success stories of integrative medicine therapies such as Hypnotherapy, Lifeline Technique, NLP, EFT, for resolving issues around infertility such as:
- Unexplained infertility
- Unresolved emotions associated with children
- Fear of becoming a mother
- Stress and Depression
- Feeling unworthy
For unresolved cases of infertility,it is highly recommended that one considers the above integrative therapies as part of treating infertility.
