Our Approach to Fertility
At ChiroMom we specialize in a unique and natural approach in assisting with conception. Whether you are ready to start trying tomorrow or you have been trying for some time, you may improve your odds of conception utilizing Chiropractic care in conjunction with Abdominal Mayan Massage.
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.
Your spine is a central highway of nerves. Just as an electrical cord has to be fully plugged in for an appliance to run, your reproductive system will not function properly if the nerves that lead to them are not functioning or are blocked in some way.
A chiropractor will identify pinched or pressed nerves and fix those spinal distortions, which are called subluxations. The distortions can be caused by many things including childhood falls, illnesses, accidents, poor posture, or even stress.
Once the subluxations are minimized or eliminated, a woman’s menstrual cycle can strengthen, the action that delivers the egg through the fallopian tubes to the uterus can improve, and some cases of endometriosis can begin to reverse.
Arvigo Maya Abdominal Massage is a modern adaptation of ancient Mayan healing techniques that adds modern knowledge of anatomy, physiology and herbology. This technique gently manipulates the muscles and tendons that hold all the belly organs in place to bring all things back into alignment and promote proper functioning.
Normally the uterus leans slightly over the bladder in the center of the pelvis. It is held in this position by muscles and ligaments. The ligaments and muscles can weaken and loosen, causing the uterus to fall downward, forward, backward or to either side. When reproductive organs shift, they can constrict normal flow of blood and lymph, and disrupt nerve connections. By shifting the uterus back into place the natural balance of the body is restored in the pelvic area and the surrounding organs. Toxins are flushed and nutrients that help to tone tissues and balance hormones are restored to normal order. This is essential for healthy pregnancy, labor, and delivery.
Old adhesions from invasive treatments to the pelvic and abdominal area, including fibroid tumors, endometriosis, and cesarean delivery are diminished when addressed by Mayan Abdominal Therapy.
These two healing modalities greatly complement each other in improving the chances of conception. At ChiroMom our unique approach has been very successful for helping with fertility as well as with digestive problems, such as: irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), chronic constipation, chronic indigestion or heartburn, gastro esophageal reflux (GERD), Crohn’s Disease and gastritis. As mentioned earlier, chiropractic adjustments help to remove irritations to the nervous system which may occur from physical, emotional and chemical stressors that the body experiences. When the nervous system is properly functioning the body can then function at its optimal potential.
