Reflexology and Infertility/ PregnancyCauses

Infertility and assisted deliveries have increased in recent years, the reason being that women are older trying to conceive. Increased intake of alcohol both in females and males,

Change in diet: more processed food and vital minerals are missing in our diet,

Workload and stressful pace of life today.

Common causes in men

Last but not least it would be unfair not to mention another cause of the reduction in sperm. It is thought to be the after effects of the introduction of the pill in the sixties, which is still very much in use today and is now in the food chain.

The use of D.E.S, an oestrogen hormone used in the sixties to prevent miscarriage has since been shown to cause reproductive tract problems for offspring.

Common causes in women

Failure to ovulate,

Inability to form eggs,

Endometriosis,

Pelvic inflammatory Disease,

Hostile Cervical Mucus,

Fibroidous growths in the uterus.

Infertility problems can be split 40% between men and women. The other 20% is unknown. Of course one must always keep the emotional factor in the forefront when looking at infertility.

 To conceive

To conceive a baby the man must be healthy,

The male needs motile sperm in large quantities,

The female needs the right pH in the cervical mucus,

Healthy eggs,

Fallopian tubes free of blockages,

Proper secretion of hormones

Hospitable uterus.

Reflexology has been known for years to be of immense benefit to couples trying to conceive. Gynaecologists are now suggesting it before fertility drugs and some in conjunction with fertility treatment. During a treatment the energy pathways are assessed for blockage or other disturbances. This is detected by the presence of crystals deposits which are believed to be calcium deposits that have settled beneath the skin surface at the nerve endings which there are approximately 7000. These are then broken down by the reflexologist and removed by the circulatory system in the body.
