Emotions & infertility
Our human body uses 50 hormones to regulate different systems and bodily functions, this also includes a number of hormones that help regulate the development and release of the female reproductive cells, or eggs. Emotions such as stress, anxiety, fear and constant worry, are typical emotions that the majority of woman (and men) experience during the journey of trying to conceive. These emotions cause a hormonal reaction and create an imbalance within the body and the reproductive system. This in turn contributes to an environment that is not conducive to conceive and as a result can make conception difficult and lead to infertility issues.
Emotions are linked to hormone production
Our thoughts and emotions are directly linked to hormone production as they influence our endocrine, immune and nervous systems. This directly affects our hormonal balance in the body. In the book ,“Your Body’s Many Cries for Water,” F. Batmanghelidj states that “emotions are biochemical reactions in the brain”. These biochemical reactions influence our brain waves, blood vessels, heart rate and breathing. This, in return, affects glands that control our hormones.
Thoughts and emotions are influenced by many different things including patterns of thinking, our beliefs, our parents and other people in our life, our physical environment and even the type of food we eat. Dr Frank Lipman explain that,”Emotions are not limited to the brain”. In fact, there are over 100 types of emotions that exist in the body. These emotions stem from an energy called “EMOTIONAL ENERGY.” This type of energy is what we have within our bodies and it’s a form of energy that is being produced through our nervous system which directly affects hormone balance.
It is critical to consider your health holistically at this important stage of life. Mental health is essential, we need to give consideration to what are thoughts are really doing to our body.
