“Why Am I Not Pregnant?”
This past year and a half I have been supporting a dear friend as she has struggled with infertility. Up until recently she didn’t want my expertise. Sometimes our friends and family are the hardest to reach, but through it all she has had my undying support. After a year of struggling with pregnancy, she and her husband got tested and were both found to be fertile leaving them even more frustrated. They began giving her hormone injections, which just heightened her emotions, increased her weight, and decreased her hope when nothing changed. The next step was IVF (In Vitro Fertilization), which landed her on bed rest when her ovaries rejected the eggs and her reproductive system became inflamed. Sitting in her consult with tears streaming down her face she asked, “Why can’t I get pregnant?”
“Why can’t I get pregnant?” is a question that plagues the minds of millions and millions of women a year. After watching multiple friends and practice members suffer I realized that I needed to write this blog to both educate and give hope. It is not diseases that are incurable but rather people who are incurable. More so than not women are being told that they “can’t” get pregnant without the help of intervention rather than being told why they are not getting pregnant. Barring significant medical conditions women are meant to be pregnant and by fine-tuning their lifestyle, pregnancy is just around the corner.
It is important to understand that the human body is vitalistic in nature, so it’s function cannot be explained by the laws of physics and chemistry alone. Many times because the human body functions as a machine, we view it as mechanistic. But that is not the case because mechanistic function can be explained. If the human body were mechanistic then each and every time medicine would be a success and that is not the case. In my friend’s case, if the body were mechanistic, the injections and IVF would have worked.
So, “Why are you not pregnant?” The answer is simple, at this time your body is not prepared to carry a child. The human body is controlled by innate intelligence, which governs the body and keeps the body in homeostasis. I go by the motto, “Your innate always knows.” While that can be a hard one to swallow, you are not in the desert with no water, but rather at an oasis where you can receive the knowledge necessary to boost your innate function and allow your body to function at any even more optimal level.
It is important to understand that at birth we have 100% innate function. We always have 100% innate function and while the percentage of function does not change, its expression does. Innate expression is altered by stressors; chemical, physical, and emotional. This causes subluxations in the human body, creating interference in the human body therefore disrupting homeostasis. Infertility is one of the many “symptoms” or dis-eases within the human body. Dis-ease is the result of altered innate expression and over time leads to disease. In order to alter the expression of innate you must remove the stressors, which are causing the dis-ease.
Now that we know “Why you aren’t pregnant?” let’s work on what it will take to get your body where it needs to be to get pregnant. First, you need to find a chiropractor to assess your nervous system function by locating subluxations within your spine that are causing dis-ease. He or she will then make spinal adjustments, which will ignite your innate expression. Remember, your chiropractor just performs the adjustment and the innate takes over. As a chiropractor I never question innate. As for other stressors you will have to start to do what it takes to maintain balanced function…chemically, physically, and emotionally. Physically, besides getting adjusted, you will need to maintain some form of an exercise routine and stay active. Emotionally, you will need to decrease your stress and stay in a positive mind set regardless of how frustrated and beaten down you feel. Chemically you will need to make sure you are eating the proper foods, drinking appropriate amounts of alkalized water, consuming proper nutrients and minerals, and realizing that pharmaceutical drugs are a stressor to your body.
I have had many frustrated women walk into my office feeling broken, frustrated, and alone…and together with the aforementioned plan; I am now adjusting their babies! Your body always knows. Remember, it’s not that you can’t get pregnant but rather that the time is not right for you to be pregnant.
