In modern society, we have a very disjointed view of our bodies and the way they function. This is more than just departmentalising certain body parts but also separating the mental and emotional from the physical. In reality we work as an extremely intelligent functioning organism with every action causing a reaction somewhere else.
Our mental states can often manifest with physical symptoms. I have experienced this with many of my clients. For example, a female client who was stuck in the shock of her birth trauma began to develop heart palpitations and shortness of breath. Or the teenager who began to suffer debilitating migraines after the grief associated with her parents’ divorce.
Many people experience emotional imbalances which coincide with physical ailments, but because we have become accustomed to viewing the human body as a set of separate processes, we don’t recognise these connections. Every cell is a recursion of the bigger picture, so they are individually involved in everything that happens in our bodies. Homeopathy takes a holistic approach to your health accounting for the interconnected nature of our being. You can be assured that the root cause of your issues is being dealt with rather than a short-term approach to alleviate symptoms.
But what has this got to do with infertility? In many parts of the world we spend a long period of our lives trying not to become pregnant. From the minute women become sexually active, one of the first decisions is about which contraceptive method is most appropriate.
In addition to the constant messaging that we must not get pregnant, the rapid increase in the use of the contraceptive pill over the years, means that more women are physically suppressing their natural cycles through hormone treatment as well as psychologically.
As the age at which people decide to start a family becomes later, this message only has more time to embed itself in our psyche. This is true for both men and women and could also contribute to the increasing male factor infertility we see in the world today.
It is well known that the more you repeat a message to yourself, the more it becomes part of your fabric. Your sperm and eggs are cells. If they are being told for years that a child is not what is required, does it not follow that they will resist standing to attention as soon as that message changes?
Although there are many factors that contribute to infertility, this is one perspective that is not widely considered. The good news is positive messaging works just as well negative so if you are now ready to have a baby, start telling yourself you will. Think positive in your mind as well as your actions. What changes do we make when we are pregnant? We start to look after ourselves more, we are more careful with certain things, we are joyful. Acting pregnant now can only help you to become pregnant later.
