Five Holistic Practices for Conception
You want to make sure your mind, body, and spirit are aligned to give you the best chance at being fertile. Holistic fertility practices embrace balance to find that center for your body. We’ll give you the tools you need to know to maybe one day hold a tiny one of your own.
How Can I Improve My Fertility Holistically?
Acupuncture: A newcomer to accepted (in the Western world) fertility improvements, the ancient Chinese practice has been shown to help manage stress, which can affect your ovulation cycles. The method has also been proven to help with uterine blood flow and embryo transfer. It can help male fertility as well, by increasing sperm counts and motility.
Meditation: Shown to help control stress levels by increasing the regularity of ovulation, meditation can be a great habit. You can chant a mantra, practice deep breathing, and light a pleasant-smelling candle for some aromatherapy.
Yoga: Stress relief, toning, calorie burning, and poses that can help with fertility are the all-around benefits of yoga, and each can help improve your fertility.
Dietary Adjustments: You are what you eat, as they say. Research says eating nutritiously is more effective than supplemental medication to improve fertility rates, although prenatal vitamins and folic acid can still help you get the nutrition you need.
Weight Loss: Your body has a happy medium that can sometimes be hard to maintain. It’s been shown that being too heavy can affect your fertility, as can being too small. Your body needs the energy that comes from the right balance of muscle, and your systems need to function correctly, particularly your hormones. Seek out healthy and tasty food choices (and if you’re too small – protein!!), and get moving for about an hour a day, a few days/week.
Living a balanced life isn’t so far-reaching; with a few tweaks, you can be well on your way to peace and a more fertile future!
