Whether you are enduring unexplained infertility, secondary infertility, failed IVF rounds or even medically diagnosed fertility issues; the innovative and highly successful techniques of Rapid Transformation Hypnotherapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) could provide the answer.
There are a great many reasons for infertility; genetic factors, hormonal imbalances, environmental causes, and both prescription and recreational drug use. There are also numerous psychological influences, which can manifest as physical symptoms as the body overtly expresses the unconscious mind.
The mind is the part of the problem that is overlooked when treating issues with fertility.
Infertility is real, and medicine can, and does, help some people; but the mind is the part of the problem that is invariably overlooked. Infertility has always been considered primarily a physiological issue. However, research over the last twenty years, has changed that supposition, and the majority of those studies support the belief that the mind-body connection is a vital part of the conception process.
Coping with fertility problems can be extremely challenging. Enduring assisted fertility treatments, like IVF, exacerbates the issue. IVF is a confusing, worrying and time consuming procedure, that people put a huge amount of financial and emotional investment into. Irrespective of the outcome, going through a cycle of IVF is likely to have an intense physical, emotional and psychological effect. The impact of which is only likely to be magnified by treatment failure.
Medical interventions can certainly facilitate the biological aspects of fertility, but without the necessary psychological and emotional support, these treatments are somewhat incomplete.
Forget all of the scientific evidence for a moment, and there is heaps of it, but just thinking about times that the mind has hugely influenced the body can provide simple, easily understandable proof. For most of us, going to a job interview or on a first date, for example, has initiated physical symptoms. Sweaty hands, heart pounding furiously, or intensely dry mouth. The vast majority, if not all of us, have experienced our psychology affecting our physiology in some form, so why do we find it so hard to believe that thoughts can actually cause issues with our reproductive system?
Discoveries in Psychoneuroimmunology indicate that our predominant unconscious attitudes and beliefs have a greater effect on our level of health, including fertility, than the conscious thoughts which we may prefer to have about these matters. Therefore. positively influencing the unconscious processes of our awareness, can have tremendous physiological benefits.
The value of effecting change in the Unconscious Mind for the purpose of healing makes sense when you consider one definition of the unconscious mind to be 'the collective intelligence of all cells in your body'. Discoveries in Epigenetics, the study of how environmental signals regulate gene activity, inform us that we are not victims of our genetic code, and that we can influence what happens in our cells. Cell Biologist, Dr Bruce Lipton Ph.D. makes it clear that our perception controls both our behaviour and our gene activity.
Modern science has been able to control and cure so many diseases by the use of drugs, to such an extent, that the potential power of the patient has been forgotten. Awareness of the mind's power has been lost, as medicine throws out all evidence that is not easily quantified or scientific.
Increase your chances of getting pregnant, through natural conception, or assisted fertility treatments such as IVF, IUI or ICSI.
Studies conducted at Harvard Medical School on 184 women using mind-body techniques for infertility, showed that 55% had a viable pregnancy within one year, compared to only 20% of the control group achieving a viable pregnancy.
The British Medical Journal published the findings of a study whereby women who had difficulty conceiving, were taught to replace negative thoughts about their chances of getting pregnant, with positive beliefs that would conceive. 50% of them became pregnant. This was in stark contrast to the control group, in which, only one in five conceived.
Rapid Transformation Hypnotherapy utilises the mind-body connection to identify the cause of any stress or anxiety around pregnancy, and any negative attitudes and beliefs. The treatment goes on to eliminate the negativity and lay down positive neural pathways, whilst optimising the function of the reproductive system and all its organs down to cellular level.
Using EMDR with women undergoing IVF treatment, results in them becoming pregnant far quicker than IVF statistics predict (Zimmermann, E. June, 2010).
Using the remarkable practise of EMDR, I also help people cope with their emotions during the different stages they encounter whilst trying to get pregnant.
As well as providing evidence that EMDR can accelerate pregnancy, studies also concluded that a significant number of women became pregnant after working with EMDR, before they even started fertility treatment.
