Hypnosis for Fertility

It has been stated that the stress of infertility is equal to that of cancer , divorce or other traumatic events. The hypnothalamus. which controls hormone production,  is  affected by stress; specifically, the hormaones affecting the monthly release  of the ovum, and preparation of the uterine lining for implanatation, are likely to be affected. One of the most common tests for infertility, the LHS test, is taken as indiciative of infertilty if the score is over ten. Awoman who has alaready had a hard time getting pregnant, and is tense about the possible “sentence of infertility” that mayl be given to her by an authority figure, is unlikely to be calm and relaxed…which in many cases would lead to a truer , and lower, LHS reading.

The function of hypnotherapy is to relax the person and address subconscious barriers to conception. Everyone understands that stress can casue skin rashes, and even heart attacks. If the body is under stress, the sympathehetic nervous system prepares us for fight or flight..which is totally imcompatible with preparation for reproduction.

However, it is more complicated than this .The reasons why a woman may shut down(not ovulate, or  not prepare a sutiable uterine lining to maintain a pregnancy) have much more to do with factors from many years ago-messages she recveived and believed about her own fertility or perhaops fitness to be a mother. Messages like”all the women in my family have difficulty conceiving” can be a seflf-fulfilling prophecy. We are not a brain with a body attached. Every cell responds to the messages which we believe to be true. Many of them are detrimental, but because they  operate at a subsconscious level, they can only be addressed at a subconscious level. A woman who has had a miscarriage or abortion or has given a baby up for adoption, or has undergone other sorts of trauma, may have difficulty conceiving because emotional healing has not yet occured.

On average, a women wih a diagnosis of infertily has an 18-28% chance of pregancy after an average of 7 IVF procedures. When this method is supplemented by hypnotherapy, acupuncture, Reiki, or other body mind methods(preferably in combination) the stats rise to 45-65 % take-home babies.

Why the huge dispartity? Because in fact many of the women diagnosed with” unexplained fertility” have a perfectly good reason fo being infertile…their bodies are under so much stress(often due to issues in the past, not present) that the fertility switch, operated by the hypnothalamus, is virtually always in the off position.

It is a truism that  many couples who give up on fertiltiy procedures and adopt sufddenly become pregnant. That’s because the pressure is off and they can finally relax.

It would probably make a lot for sense for most couples to use about 10 sessions of body-mind work, at a fraction of the cost of invasive medical procedures, to increase their chances of haing a baby naturally. This can be done before, concurrent with or after allopathic procedures such as IVF.

I  use Reiki energy healing in combination with hypnotherapy to address subconscious issues.
