Ellen and Nick came to see me after two years of trying to become pregnant. They had been trying to conceive without any luck despite having a very active sex life and hormone and blood results coming back as 'normal'.
Nick worked in an environment where he was exposed to chemicals on a daily basis. His diet was skewed towards carbohydrates but did include animal proteins and some vegetables. He did not drink alcohol or smoke but did drink sugary drinks to keep his energy up throughout the day. His sleep was good and his levels of stress were generally low. He very rarely felt unwell. When taking his case, the thing that stood out was a history of taking recreational drugs.
Ellen worked as a teacher and loved her job. She did experience stress but at manageable levels. Her diet was poor. She often skipped breakfast, ate an apple for lunch and had meat and carbohydrates for dinner. She often forgot to drink water.
She was the only one of her siblings that had been sent away to boarding school and she spoke about her grief around this. Although she had enjoyed her time away and thrived whilst there, she felt like her mother had abandoned her. We talked a lot Ellen's relationship with her mother.
She still had feelings of abandonment and as a result felt distant from her mother despite craving her attention.
After throughly taking both cases, it was clear that the problem for Ellen was primarily emotional. The trauma she had experienced by being separated from her family had not been processed or resolved. Additionally, I believed her body was not being adequately nourished to be able to conceive.
I felt that Nick could improve his diet by cutting out the sugary drinks and redressing the balance of food groups towards more vegetables and less carbohydrates. Although he had stopped recreational drug use a few years back, I believed that there could still be a residual effect on the quality of his sperm.
I prescribed a detox for Nick and a remedy that would help resolve the emotional issues for Ellen. I also gave them some nutritional advice to help improve their fertility.
One month later, I was delighted to receive an email confirming they were pregnant!
I believe that our emotional state is often taken for granted as conventionally fertility treatment is very much focussed on physical aspects. I have found that many women have emotional symptoms connected to the relationships with their own mothers. In my experience, this can have a huge impact on the ability to conceive. It can bring up all sorts of feelings, often suppressed, about your own ability to mother a child. The remedy I prescribed for Ellen worked beautifully to resolve her feelings. After a few months, the relationship she had with her mother improved greatly.
Even though Nick's drug use had been in the past, there is often a residual effect that isn't picked up by conventional testing and is therefore not considered to be a problem. Homeopathic detoxing is so helpful for clearing the body of toxins and can often be vital to your fertility. This is the case for the birth control pill, steroids and even metal toxicity.
According to research, as many as 50% of people seeking fertility treatment are diagnosed with unexplained infertility. This case demonstrates that infertility can always be explained and treated as long as you have the knowledge and experience to understand the root cause.
I supported Ellen with homeopathy for nausea, back pain and fatigue throughout her pregnancy and she gave birth to a beautiful baby boy just under nine months later.
