In 2007 a survey conducted by StatsSA revealed that an estimated one in every four couples in South Africa have been affected by infertility with the male partner being responsible for almost 50% of the cases. The numbers are ever on the increase but healthy changes to lifestyle and regular reflexology treatments can result in a happy outcome.

Many factors may contribute to infertility, with lifestyle choices and modern day stress being two of the most significant causes. The full range of culprits may include:

  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Smoking
  • Unhealthy food choices
  • Being over or under weight
  • Psychological effects of infertility itself
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Stressful work environment
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Not eating due to lifestyle demands

All of the above play havoc with our endocrine systems, contributing to massive hormonal imbalances which may be the underlying cause of fertility complications. Some causes of infertility may be physical defects found in the sexual organs such as deformities of the uterus in women or sperm duct deformities in men, but in many cases the cause of infertility can be reversed, resulting in the joy of a little bun in the oven.

How Does Reflexology Help?

By helping you to relax and destress, reflexology reduces the cortisol levels in your body which can have an extreme effect on your hormone and organ functioning. It further promotes the detox process, helping to eliminate your toxic load.

Reflexology stimulates your meridians, assisting in breaking down congestions that lie within them, increasing the flow of vital or chi energy to your organs, and restoring balance within those organs in order to optimize their functioning.

Simply put, reflexology together with wise lifestyle choices helps to clean out your body and restores balance on a physical and energetic level, thereby increasing your chances of conception that will result in a healthy pregnancy, healthy baby and healthy mother.
