Fertility Issues: When Conception Becomes Difficult

By Jane Knight, MIFR, MICHT (ARP), MIIHHT, BCMA Reg, Reiki Master


Through experience, I have found that a combination of things work really well - some cost nothing, others cost a bit, but nowhere near the cost of private fertility treatments. interesting


The youngest lady I have helped is 27, the oldest is 44.  They all have different problems - unexplained infertility, blocked tubes, endometriosis, polycystic ovaries, hormone imbalances, repeated miscarriages etc.


The shortest time spent helping someone is 3 weeks, and the longest is one year.  I work with ladies having fertility treatments, or without, but sometimes they do get pregnant even before their planned treatments!


I do not believe in 'alternative' therapy, only 'complementary' ie.  if you are having any conventional treatment, you should continue with this unless your consultant says you can stop.


There are several things that I really believe help synergistically ie. they all work together.  I recommend several products, and I’m a firm believer in helping as many ladies as possible.


Reflexology:  Deeply relaxing and de-stressing, reflexology balances all bodily systems and can re-balance hormones and enhance performance of the reproductive system in men and women.  A must do – always look for a reflexologist with the letters MIFR after their name which stands for ‘Member of the International Federation of Reflexologists’.  They will have been very highly trained.


Magnets:  There is only one company that I would recommend as they have the highest quality magnets in the world (NASA uses them to put in the spacesuits of astronauts).  The company is called Norstar Biomagnetics and their products are highly effective.  Magnets work by stimulating the blood circulation in the area in which they are worn. They eliminate toxins and encourage the body to heal itself.  However the use of magnets is NOT advised once you become pregnant.  The SENZA magnet can be velcroed to your knickers and is worn against the skin on your tummy; UK cost £12.50 +P&P.  It’s great for those suffering from painful periods, endometriosis, polycystic ovaries, IBS etc.


Colloidal Mineral and multi-vitamin supplements – choose a good quality one that contains all minerals, vitamins, amino acids and a load of other good stuff that you need. 


Essential fatty acid supplements daily such as Omega 3 Fish Oils or Flaxseed Oil if you are not eating foods rich in these every day eg. oily fish and seeds such as linseeds.


Try to eat as much organic food as possible.  The pesticides on fruit and vegetables are endocrine disrupters and can cause disruption of the reproductive system.  The same goes for the chemicals, steroids, growth hormones used in meat and poultry.


Avoid food wrapped in plastics such as cling film and plastic wrap.  Plastics contain chemicals which are xenoestrogens or false oestrogens - these can upset the balance of your hormones.


Check you bathroom and bedroom cabinets for stuff containing sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) and propylene glycol - especially found in shampoos, bubble bath, shower gels, toothpaste, creams etc.  SLS and propylene glycol can disrupt the reproductive system.  Try to use natural body care products that use no toxic or carcinogenic ingredients.


Check your body mass index - If you're too skinny or very overweight, you will find it hard to get pregnant.


Other tips include:



  • Cut right down on tea, coffee and caffeinated drinks.

  • Homeopathy is very good.

  • Think positively - lots of affirmations eg. "My body is healthy and I can get pregnant".  Try to relax and don’t overly stress.  Don't ever say "I WILL get pregnant" as this puts pressure on yourself and your body.

  • Drink loads of filtered or mineral water - about 2-3 litres a day.  Your body needs 2 litres a day just to work properly.

  • Wear orange and red as much as possible - in colour therapy these are good fertility colours.

  • Buy a little Rose quartz crystal and wear it in your bra or in your pocket - these precious stones are very cheap and can be found in most new age shops.  Rose quartz crystal is a good fertility stone.

  • Do gentle to moderate exercise at least once a week.

  • On a general level, take time out to relax and de-stress each day.  Make time for YOU, pamper yourself regularly.

  • Lots of other therapies are very good especially Reiki healing, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, nutritional therapy among others.
