Is It Possible to Optimize Your Natural Fertility and Get Pregnant?
If you’re here, you or someone close to you is likely experiencing infertility. Whether you’ve been struggling for a long time or you’ve recently realized you need help, one of the best things you can do is focus on enhancing your natural fertility.
As of 2022, the global infertility rate is 17.5%. This percentage includes those who’ve experienced infertility at some point in their lives¹.
So many experience the emotional and physical challenges of infertility, without finding an answer. There are several factors that affect your natural fertility. Lifestyle choices, genetic conditions, and mental health are essential to consider.
There are effective methods for boosting your natural fertility without IVF or IUI.
We’re going to go over the best Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatments for optimal fertility. As a TCM practitioner and fertility expert, I’ve helped many of my clients become pregnant with these techniques.
They help restore the balance between your mind and body, preserving your life force energy (qi). You can do them at home, without the stress of weekly appointments and money flying out of the bank. My favorite tried-and-true technique is acupressure, which we’ll talk about in this blog.
First, let’s discuss the importance of your natural fertility when you’re trying to conceive.
Natural Fertility Info You Need to Know
The number of couples who use assisted reproductive technologies, such as IVF, is increasing by five to ten percent every year².
While it can be difficult to pinpoint, infertility isn’t always a permanent state. A variety of lifestyle and genetic factors can contribute to infertility.
The key is only focusing on what you can control.
Even if you’ve been trying and trying with no results, there are TCM methods that can increase your chances by improving your overall well-being.
Infertility treatments in TCM focus on balance to promote natural fertility and increase the odds of pregnancy³.
When one of your systems is imbalanced, it can throw the other systems out of balance. This is why it’s crucial to pay attention to your diet, stress levels, physical activity, emotional state, and other factors that have power over your physical and mental health.
It’s also effective when used with other fertility treatments such as IUI⁴.
But in this blog, I’m going to focus on exercises and practices you can do at home.
Increase Natural Fertility At Home
One of my favorite natural fertility treatments is acupressure.
Acupuncture is well-known for its role in pain management and decreasing anxiety. But acupressure is also a safe and effective method for helping with these issues⁵. It’s cheaper and easy to do at home. This is why I teach women self-acupressure when they need natural fertility help.
We know from TCM that all of the systems of the body are interconnected. Acupressure has positive effects on the mind and body. Besides decreasing anxiety, it can:
- Improve sleep.
- Reduce nausea and indigestion.
- Increase concentration and emotion management⁶.
You can use fertility acupressure at any point in your journey. So if you’re going through treatment already or just getting started, this can be helpful for you.
As we discussed, there are many contributing factors to infertility. So if you’re trying to increase your natural fertility, you should also pay attention to nutrition to make sure your body is getting the nutrients it needs.
Natural Fertility Foods for Getting Pregnant
TCM addresses the body’s need for nutrients through certain foods and herbal remedies.
Some herbal remedies aren’t safe for pregnancy. However, they’re effective for promoting natural fertility. An analysis of multiple studies showed a two to three-point-five higher likelihood of pregnancy for women undergoing herbal therapy compared to those using Western infertility drugs⁷.
It can be time-consuming and expensive to find a highly-qualified herbalist near you. So how do you make sure your mind and body are getting essential nutrients?
I’m not going to give you another long list of foods that you have to eat if you want to get pregnant. What you eat is important, but it heavily depends on you. You might have nutrient deficiencies or health conditions that make general advice impractical.
How you eat is another crucial component for boosting your natural fertility.
Here are some general guidelines for which foods to go for and how to balance your nutrition.
1. Eat regularly and slowly.
Your digestive system is most efficient when your eating habits are consistent. You can strengthen your metabolism and digestive energy by eating regularly.
It’s also helpful to eat slowly to improve the absorption of nutrients.
2. Focus on warm foods.
TCM emphasizes the importance of warmth in optimizing natural fertility. Warm foods support the spleen system, which houses the digestive organs in TCM.
The consumption of warm foods also affects the kidney system. This system activates your jing-essense⁸. Jing-qi contributes to all systems, including the reproductive system.
3. Get enough greens.
Dark leafy vegetables are beneficial for fertility because they’re rich in minerals. They help nourish your uterine lining and contribute to the health of your eggs.
4. Take supplements to heal your gut.
Most of us have leaky gut to some degree. This means we aren’t absorbing all the necessary nutrients from what we eat.
I recommend Metagenics Fertility Supplements for healing your gut and aiding your fertility.
Nutrition is only one piece of the puzzle for enhancing your natural fertility. Let’s talk about other healthy lifestyle choices that can help.
Lifestyle Makes a Huge Difference
Lifestyle is another component of well-being that influences natural fertility.
Qi and sleep are closely related. If your qi is deficient for any reason, it can worsen your sleep⁹. Not getting enough sleep can also weaken your qi. If your energy is drained, your reproductive system doesn’t have energy to draw from.
You can improve your sleep by practicing acupressure. I also recommend engaging in mindset and meditation activities.
Mindfulness activities are also a great way to reduce stress and anxiety, which hinder your natural fertility¹⁰.
Your environment, which can include the people around you at home and at work, is important to consider when you’re trying to maintain a positive mindset.
If you’re in an environment that’s:
You need to take note of how you’re feeling and thinking.
The other lifestyle area to focus on for a natural fertility increase is exercise.
Qigong for Natural Fertility
While some exercises aren’t recommended for pregnancy, there aren’t many exercises that are harmful to your fertility. There are certain exercises that can aid your conception efforts.
I teach fertility qigong because it stimulates energy flow throughout your body to your ovaries and uterus. There is one qigong exercise that shouldn’t be used for fertility, so make sure you’re doing the right exercises¹¹.
Qigong is also beneficial while you’re pregnant. It’s a safe alternative to other exercises that drain and harm your body when it’s working for an extra little human.
My Clients’ Experiences With Traditional Chinese Medicine
I’ve worked with countless amazing women from vastly different situations.
After going through my program, the Fertility Activation Method, and utilizing TCM treatments like DIY acupressure, these women were able to restore their natural fertility and eventually conceive.
Some struggled with infertility for a few months before my program. Others endured years of trying. Quite a few of my clients have had conditions like PCOS or endometriosis. They were told they had a low chance of conceiving.
No matter how long you’ve been trying and regardless of how many underlying health issues you have, there’s hope.
I highly recommend TCM for boosting your fertility and promoting your overall well-being and happiness. If it feels like you’ve tried everything and you’re wondering if it’ll work for you, hang in there.
TCM is a great alternative or addition to Western medicine fertility treatments.
Natural Fertility Treatment Doesn’t Have to Be Painful
