Infertility can be caused by a number of health conditions ranging from endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, low sperm count, hormone and cervical issues, as well as other conditions, known and unknown. In fact, a cause of infertility cannot be found in approximately 20% of all cases.
I am a firm believer that stress can cause a magnitude of health issues, but can it cause infertility issues? I certainly believe so. The internal response of infertility can cause additional stress on our mental, emotional and physical health. When we experience copious amounts of stress, our coritsol levels are affected, which can wreck havoc on our hormones levels, thus throwing our bodies off balance.
High amounts of stress can also raise cortisol levels at night, which can cause insomnia. We require proper sleep for our bodies to work efficiently, and if we become 'imbalanced' internally, it can prevent optimal functionality, therefore possibly preventing conception.
Adrenal Fatigue can also be factored into fertility issues. Adrenal Fatigue is caused by prolonged stress and it causes our Adrenal Glands, which are located above our kidneys, to become depleted. When our Adrenal Glands are depleted, we can experience lower back pain, frequent trips to the bathroom at night, and the inability to deal with stress. You may also find that even after sufficient hours of sleep, you still feel extremely tired. Because the body works as a whole, if one thing becomes off balance it can cause many things to be off balance.
So how can Reiki help with infertility issues?
I have treated several clients who originally came to me for Reiki Energy Healing to relieve stress levels, not infertility. Without my clients sharing the reason for their stress, I could 'feel' their underlying concern. After sharing my intuitive insight with my clients, they were surprised to hear I could sense their emotional despair regarding their infertility issues.
I began to work with my clients to relieve their stress by using the natural method of Reiki Energy Healing. After relieving tremendous amounts of stress through Reiki, it put their mind at ease and their body back into balance, which allowed it to function properly. After four sessions, for one of my clients, she was happy to announce that she was pregnant with twins. Her beautiful boys are now healthy and thriving little children.
Reiki helps relive our minds and bodies of the stress we carry. It's the act of going within and addressing our worries, fears and the things we hold onto that no longer serve us. The method of natural Energy Healing, combined with meditation, can have a profound benefit on us spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically.
After initially discovering how Reiki was able to help my client conceive, I shared this with other woman who were also having issues with conception. Since then I have helped four women with their infertility issues. I do not have the words to describe how rewarding it is to have been a part of their journeys. Some of these clients were receiving IFV treatments (In Vitro Fertilization), combined with Reiki Sessions. Others were not taking any form medication. In fact, a client who was receiving IVF commented that she was told by her doctor that her egg count and the survival rate of the eggs was much higher than the average woman receiving IVF treatments.
It's amazing how stress and prolonged stress can have such a major impact on our health, however, when you relieve yourself of stress through different healing methods and therapies, it can truly change the health of our over all well-being.
Have you ever heard of people who went on vacation and "miraculously" conceived after having issues for many years? On vacation you are at ease and stress-free. By not trying to control things, everything flows naturally and organically. And we've all met a couple who decided to "stop trying", only to became pregnant once they stopped trying to control the outcome. By letting go, they also released the stress connected to the emotional experience of infertility and the high expectations they placed on themselves and their partners.
While Reiki Energy Healing may not help everyone with infertility issues, it's definitely worth a try. If you are having issues with infertility, please connect with someone who works with Reiki Energy Healing in your area. Get a feel for the person and trust your gut, you never know how it could change your life.
