For some women, it can be one of those frustrating ironies in life. Spending years and years trying not to conceive (and maybe having a scare or two in the process) – then when you eventually do want a baby, it simply doesn’t seem to be happening.
Fertility problems can often come as something of a shock and can quickly take over your life. Experts generally tell women to give it at least six to twelve months before considering it an issue, however, once you have decided that you do want to take steps to improve your chances of pregnancy it can be difficult to know what to do and where to turn.
There are several medical routes that can be explored with the help of your doctor. However, alternative therapies can also have a valuable place in helping women who want to get pregnant.
At Lymm Osteopathic Practice they have a multidisciplinary approach to helping their patients achieve optimum health and overcome whichever health issues they feel to be important to them. The practice has several practitioners, who can all offer advice and assistance with various aspects of fertility, depending on a woman’s individual health concerns.
For example, an Osteopath can identify if a woman has a misaligned pelvis, which can have an impact on reproductive health – then take steps to try and correct it. A variety of osteopathic techniques can also be used to improve function of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, nervous and hormonal systems
Another complementary therapy often used to increase a woman’s chance of conceiving is Acupuncture. It is said that his centuries-old discipline can help improve blood flow to the reproductive organs and balance hormone levels. Caroline Wardropper at Lymm Osteopathic Practice has spent 3 years studying traditional acupuncture at the Northern College of Acupuncture, and is a member of the British Acupuncture Council, with a specialist interest in fertility support.
Nutritional therapies are another way forward and can be extremely effective. At the practice, Rosie Tadman is a Nutritional Therapist who studied at the prestigious College of Natural Medicine, in London. Rosie uses modern science and traditional wisdom to get women in hormonal flow and support couples who want to conceive, ensuring they are as healthy as possible. She also helps women who have a hormonal condition (PCOS, endometriosis, amenorrhea) as well as women who are actively trying to get pregnant through assisted routes. She supports underlying causes, rather than just suppressing symptoms.
