Millions of women around the world have been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, which has driven the pharmaceutical and medical industries to focus on biologically manipulating the body to create life. Despite the advancements in Assisted Reproductive Technology, numerous studies show that a woman who participates in a mind-body program has a better chance of conceiving and going full term than if she uses the most advanced ART techniques. Our thoughts, beliefs, fears, emotions, and old issues create stress reactions in our bodies, and that stress is powerful enough to block fertility. So what is the best way to mitigate that stress, open a pathway to conception and bring the body into mental, physical and emotional balance? James Schwartz, BCH, author of The Mind/Body Fertility Connection, answers these questions and discusses the innovative approach he uses to promote fertility.
