The ability to conceive depends on many different factors, but it is essential that both partners are in optimum health to enable this to happen. The demands of modern lifestyle puts everyone under pressure, many fall into patterns of behaviour that they are unaware of and this can potentially have an impact on health and fertility.
Factors that may affect fertility
- longer working hours, which can lead to stress and anxiety
- poor diet and erratic eating habits, convenience foods and increased alcohol consumption
- too much or too little exercise
If medical tests show that there is no medical reason for a couple to conceive, lifestyle issues may contribute to infertility and if a couple have been trying to conceive for some time the stress and anxiety this causes can be all-consuming which also may affect their ability to conceive.
Reproflexology is a calming and balancing holistic therapy that can help to ease emotional and physical stress and tension. Regular reflexology treatment, coupled with lifestyle changes by both partners can greatly improve fertility.
