Did you think having a baby was as joyful and easy as movies make it out to be? Are you frustrated when it becomes a task? Are you on a roller coaster ride every month, only to be let down and repeatedly disappointed? You are not alone. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) report over 7.3 million Americans saw fertility specialists in 2002. The good news? Only 7.4% were diagnosed as infertile! So now what?
At Napa Healthy Families, we approach fertility as the treasure it is. Most of our patients have tried many other treatments, and their situations are unique based upon their previous journey.
First and foremost, our approach checks the nerves that regulate and control your reproductive system. These nerves exit from the spine. If there is any type of distortion or interference in those nerves, that impede them from working properly, and infertility may result. As we remove that interference through chiropractic adjustments, your body has the capacity to heal itself. And then...miracles can happen! This same nerve irritation can cause other symptoms such as menstrual problems (painful, irregular, heavy bleeding), cysts, miscarriages, and urinary tract infections, to name a few.
For some individuals, it's that easy to resolve the issue. For others, we must dig a little deeper for answers. Whether it involves charting ovulation cycles, observing hormone levels, or working on a nutritional level, during our 10+ years of experience, we have been able to locate the answers for many Napa families.
The Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research published a study on the effectiveness of chiropractic for infertility, which followed 15 women who ranged in age from 22 - 64. They were adjusted using a variety of techniques to remove nerve interference that might have affected their ability to conceive.
Impressive to say the least - 14 of the 15 subjects became pregnant within 2 to 20 months of initiating chiropractic care. Other case studies on women who struggle with fertility have yielded similar results.
If infertility is a cruel and harsh reality for you, call us to find out if we can help. 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 infertile years, previous medical intervention or health history including: miscarriages, blocked fallopian tubes, amenorrhea, colitis, or trauma
