Have you decided that you are ready to try to have a baby? Maybe you will be one of the lucky ones who conceives within a couple of months… or maybe you will find yourself among millions of fertility-challenged couples.
Whether you are ready to start trying tomorrow or you have been trying for a decade, you might want to improve your odds of conception with a natural health method that is quick, painless, inexpensive, and non-invasive. Believe it or not, a visit to the chiropractor may help you conceive.
A series of research papers published in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research found that chiropractic had positive results treating infertility regardless of the woman’s age, number of years infertile, previous medical intervention or health history including miscarriages, blocked fallopian tubes, amenorrhea, colitis, or trauma.
How Does Chiropractic Help Infertility?
Your brain controls every function of every system and organ in your body. It does this with constant communication through your spinal cord and nerves. When there is a disruption in this communication, your organs do not function efficiently. Your reproductive system is controlled by your nervous system. Pressure on your spinal nerves, specifically your lower back, can interfere with proper nerve flow from your brain to your reproductive organs. It only takes the weight of a dime, 10 mm Hg pressure, to affect nerve function, according to a University of Colorado study.
Removing nerve pressure with chiropractic care restores the communication between your spine and nerve system. Chiropractors typically measure nervous system efficiency objectively using technologies like Electromyography and Thermography to determine the levels of interference.
When your nervous system is free from interference, your body can reach its full potential. I can’t tell you how many times over the past 12 years that patients have reported seemingly unrelated health issues, like infertility, have just gone away!
