Help for Infertility in Grand Forks

Having a child is no doubt one of the greatest joys in life. While some couples conceive easily, others do not. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 1 in 8 couples have difficulty getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy (2006-2010 National Survey of Family Growth, CDC).

While many choose expensive fertility treatments, chiropractic may hold the critical keys to the infertility crisis in our country. Chiropractic is based on entire body wellness, not just treating a symptom using drugs or surgery.

The Nervous System As Master Controller

Did you know that your nervous system controls and regulates every cell, tissue, organ and system in the body? The spine, particularly in the lower back, can impair nerves that direct and monitor the reproductive and hormonal systems. Chiropractors call this interference a subluxation.

How Chiropractic May Address Infertility

While chiropractic isn’t a treatment for infertility, many women and men with spinal misalignments have experienced an improvement in their reproductive health while under chiropractic care.

Dr. Jenna uses the Insight technology that can accurately pinpoint any areas of your nervous system that may not be functioning optimally. For example, if the nerve flow responsible for regulating and controlling the ovaries, uterus and fallopian tubes is restricted, communication and function may be compromised. When the nervous system function is restored, however, the entire body can work the way it was designed to.

Lifestyle Habits to Consider

Following chiropractic care, we encourage women to take the next 24 hours and just live life. Dr. Jenna also recommends adopting these three habits when trying to become pregnant:

Clean up your diet. In addition to eating a diet comprised of healthy foods, it’s essential to reduce or eliminate sugar as that’s a powerful way to regulate hormones.

Supplement. We recommend the following when trying to conceive:

  • A high-quality fish oil – Fish oil can keep your body’s production of prostaglandin hormones at an optimal level. As a result, you may increase your ability to conceive.
  • Vitamin D – This vitamin boosts levels of progesterone and estrogen in women and is essential for the healthy development of sperm cells, increased sperm count and quality in men.
  • Inositol – This vitamin-like substance could be effective in treating hormonal imbalance. In particular, it seems to promote ovulation, which may support fertility.

Dr. Jenna can discuss with you the recommended dosages for each of the supplements.

Move. Not only does regular exercise boost your overall health, but it also could help with infertility. Dr. Jenna recommends yoga as it promotes stretching, strengthening, increased circulation, hip opening, conscious breathing, mental focus and stillness.
