Medical Intuitive is metaphysical healer who strives to help people heal and release emotional blockages.  It is an alternative medicine practice in which the healer emotionally and intuitively examines the body, to determine how a person’s energy flows or where the lack of energy flow is taking place.  A healer of this type can help seekers express their life history, and examine patterns of behavior that may have exhibited throughout their lives. Medical intuitives also help with understanding what is preventing their clients from feeling good about themselves and developing a feeling of wholeness. It is this type of healing that allows an emotional place of feeling worthy, and to take full advantage and ownership of their life to flourish.

Acupuncture 

 

According to the American Pregnancy Association, acupuncture is the insertion of ultra-thin, sterile needles into specific acupuncture points on the body, which are pathways in both the exterior and interior of the body. These points, when needled, can regulate the way in which the body functions. For example, acupuncture helps fertility by addressing problems such as an under-functioning thyroid (Hypothyroidism) or over-functioning thyroid (Hyperthyroidism). Thyroid function plays a key role in fertility as well as preventing miscarriage.  

 

Sometimes, acupuncture methods are used in conjunction with herbal medicine. This is a practice that has been used for centuries to treat some causes of infertilityIt is important to note that acupuncture and herbs will not work to address tubal adhesions which can occur as a result of pelvic inflammatory disease or endometriosis. 

  

Meditation 

 

When done effectively, meditation plays a significant role in lowering blood pressure, boosting psychological stability, slowing heart rate, and reducing stress levels. It can also reduce the production of cortisol and other stress hormones which can influence fertility. 

 

Deep, rhythmical breathing can also help to supply all the body’s cells with oxygen as well as reduce tension and muscle fatigue.  

 

Meditation helps to block out the majority of the external stimuli which depletes our energy and takes attention away from what we want to do or put positive energy towards. Meditation also helps to build some sense of connection between the mind, body, and spirit so that (potentially) our immune system is strengthened and supported. 

 

Meditation also helps to foster feelings of control. When it comes to fertility treatments, so much of the experience tends to be within the control of physicians and the protocol being followed. Not to mention, when managing the day-to-day stress in our lives, it is beneficial to have the opportunity to take the time to sit, be still, and practice centering yourself in a calm environment, in order to yield positive fertility boosting benefits.  

 

Restorative Yoga  

 

Restorative Yoga, is style of therapeutic yoga which allows the mind and body to realign, rebalance, and relieve emotional tension. According to The Domar Center, prolonged fertility treatments due to unsuccessful attempts to conceive can be highly stressful. This stress may cause anxiety and activate the sympathetic nervous system’s “fight or flight” response. The hormones released from this response, increase your heart rate, blood pressure, and metabolic rate. 

 

Chronically elevated stress hormones negatively impact overall health, and can lead to heart disease, autoimmune disorders and even adversely affect the reproductive cycle over time. 

 

Restorative yoga classes support fertility by practicing positions that are slow, gentle and mainly focused on regulated breathing. The attention on the breath helps illicit the “relaxation response” and grounds your awareness in the body and in the present moment.  

 

Affirmations and Mantras 

 

Medical Intuitive Healers may counsel their clients to utilize affirmations and mantras as way to help strengthen their subconscious mind and spirit. Similar to the effects of consistent meditation, affirmations and mantras help to quiet the mind, increase focused intention on a positive state of being, and help to release negative thought patterns the individual is battling.  

 

In conclusion, Medical Intuitive Healing practices can be a great addition to a fertility treatment plan. At the very least, it may allow an individual to feel as though they are doing everything in their power to achieve their goal of becoming a parent.
