‘We treat, not just the problem, but the whole person — body, mind, spirit, and emotions –
through achieving optimal health and wellness and re-gaining full balance in life’
Where do we start?
Firstly, we want to reassure you that this won’t be an intrusive conversation just into your infertility. This is a two-way process where our professionals will work with you to determine who you are as a whole person. In order to tailor the programme to your needs, we gain an understanding of:
We gain an understanding of
A number of lifestyle factors have been shown to reduce the quality of eggs and sperm. These types of cells are created over a prolonged period of time, so changing your lifestyle to help your chances of conception is a long term plan but a highly beneficial one. We encompass everything from activity levels to nutrition knowledge, we get to know you and your everyday life to understand how we need to adapt your lifestyle to help you.
Stress and Mood Levels
Depression and stress are common when you are dealing with infertility, it can also be a lonely time which doesn’t help, and therefore we evaluate your lifestyle and determine your stress levels. This is not a couch sitting session, we merely need to understand if we need to reduce the stress in your life, change how you deal with your stressful situation and/or introduce a practice or habit that helps you control the stress. It could be all 3 and that’s OK!
Medical history is important here as we need to understand if you have any medical conditions such as diabetes or polycystic ovary disease (PCOD). Have you taken any prescription drugs or gone through any medical treatments for infertility? These factors may also have an underlying link to your stress levels and lifestyle.
As you can see all of the above are intrinsically linked with one another, which is why at Elements Health Resort we develop a holistic programme specifically designed to treat the whole you.
The Medical Bit!
Infertility can be caused by many different things and in some cases, a medical cause can’t be identified. Inflammation of the body and emotional regulation, particularly stress and depression, are key areas affecting fertility. Our programme is designed to enhance fertility physiologically by detoxing and improving the functionality of the kidney, liver and spleen. We use specialised treatments such as:
Curcumin IV Therapy
Curcumin has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. This potent antioxidant protects the liver, and, in part, stimulates the enzymes that are responsible for flushing toxins from the body. This is important because, as the master detoxifier, the liver and liver health is critical for hormonal balance. Through IV therapy you receive 100% into the bloodstream for maximum absorption. This helps to cleanse the liver and can also help with depression.
Based on the Chinese idea that energy, flows along pathways through the body, acupuncture is used to stimulate specific points on the body to achieve balance. It can help fertility by increasing blood flow and relaxing muscle tissues around the uterus. In men, acupuncture may improve sperm health leading to a reduced risk of chromosomal abnormality. It also helps balance your hormones and reduce stress.
Women worldwide suffer from hormonal imbalances in estrogen, insulin, cortisol and adrenaline. This can be due to poor gut health, inflammation, stress and toxicity. Hormones have profound effects on your mental, physical and emotional health, plus play a major role in controlling your appetite, weight and mood. Regulating those hormones helps balance the body whilst benefiting from the changes in lifestyle you’ve made
We hope you can see how, again, everything is intrinsically linked. This is a lifestyle change.
It puts you through detox and improves the functionality of your body’s
organs. In the spirit of the holistic tradition, you will be able to understand the techniques, principles, and approaches you need to achieve your goal, that resonates uniquely with you. No two people are alike, and no one method is a panacea. Our holistic approach to infertility will improve many areas of your life, boost the body and help you sustain a life where you are happy and relaxed, which of course means your body is also!
