A healthy body works better. This also applies to fertility and pregnancy. When trying to get pregnant, a healthy lifestyle is key: a balanced diet, adequate sleep and exercise are all great tips. Pregnancy is harder to achieve, for example, being underweight or overweight, as this can disturb the hormonal balance. A change of diet can immediately increase one's chances of becoming pregnant many times over, and can also help support IVF or insemination treatments.
Practices like yoga, Pilates, meditation and tai chi help the body relax and keep fit. In addition, they are said to have a positive effect on a woman's cycle and her fertility. A fertility massage is also believed to be helpful in getting pregnant.
At the very least, yoga and massage improve one's overall well-being and hormonal balance. So, if you're looking for ways to get pregnant, you can support any fertility treatment or development of natural pregnancy in this way.
Even outside of trying to get pregnant, nicotine and alcohol are not health-promoting substances. But for those who want to get pregnant, it is best to completely abstain from nicotine and to keep alcohol consumption within limits. Passive smoking can be just as harmful. Of course, both nicotine and alcohol are a no-go during pregnancy in any case. And once the baby has arrived, they should also be avoided.
Acupuncture is a key component of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is based on the idea that energy channels (meridians) are going through our body, carrying the life-energy "Qi". If Qi doesn't flow properly, it can cause an imbalance of our body functions. With acupuncture, our body can be put back into balance and can help us relax.
We offer acupuncture treatment to our patients to increase the blood flow inside the uterus and the fallopian tubes and improve their chances of pregnancy. When the endometrium is thicker and better supplied with blood, the embryo is more likely to implant.
