Treating Infertility With Yoga Practice

You can obtain a fit and fertile body with yoga. Following a sequence of recommended poses, you can minimize the natural aging and malfunctioning of all organs, including eggs, uterus and ovaries. Yoga also makes it possible to increase your reproductive time. Exercise will improve performance of the glands, balance production of hormones in the body and stimulate the eggs to ripen and the ovaries to discharge them. Anxiety and worries, in a woman, disturb her hormones negatively and result in infertility. Pranamaya (breathing exercises) replenish oxygen to the brain; this soothes the mind and body. Meditation on a regular basis unifies the body, mind and the spirit. With these techniques positive thinking can be induced; a woman stops feeling that her own body has betrayed her. Her focus shifts from mental tensions towards the stability and robustness of her body. This decreases stress level and facilitates conception. In this way yoga not only heals physically but prepares the mind to deal with the emotional trauma of infertility.

The reproductive area in the body is known as the second chakra, or seat of creation. Certain fertility-enhancing asanas concentrate on the reproductive organs and the pelvic area. Flow of blood to these parts is enhanced and energy is stirred. The abdominal region is softened and pressure from the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes is relieved. You can begin the series with Supported Headstand and Bridge postures. This workout will stimulate the reproductive hormones in your body. To revitalize the whole body, Child, Cobbler and Bound Angle poses can be performed. Wide-angle seated forward bend also holistically invigorates your body. Reclining Bound Angle, Lotus and Reclining Hero postures excite and unwind the second chakra, the abode for the reproductive organs. In the beginning if you feel that these poses make you uncomfortable, you can use props like a pillow or a folded towel. This will help you perform easily. An appropriate way to end this yoga session will be by relaxing with Legs on the Wall pose. You will make a 90 degree angle with the wall by stretching your legs up the wall, while your torso lies flat on the floor. Breathe and hold the position for a few minutes then lower your legs to the ground at a slow pace. Adopting this posture right after intercourse enables the body to allow sperm to penetrate the uterus and results in pregnancy.

With the right attitude and constructive views generated by yoga, you will feel stronger and more certain of your body. You will be more attentive towards your wellness. You will be encouraged to take up a healthy and meaningful lifestyle; your diet will improve. Good eating habits and improved way of living also enhance the probability of conception. Yoga practice is helpful even to women in their mid-thirties, who have failed to get pregnant earlier, as it sparks the balanced release of reproductive hormones and promotes the overall restoration of the body. Fertility positions will also widen the pelvis and hip joints, improve blood circulation in the pelvic region, and even stimulate the ovaries. A success rate of 50% has been observed in such cases; endorsing the fact that in many individuals infertility was the outcome of hormone imbalances only.
