Jenn is a graduate of the HypnoBirthing Fertility Therapist Certification Program developed by Lynsi Eastburn, BCH, CI.
"The goal of this program is not simply for the client to become pregnant,
but rather is to enable the client to attain personal empowerment. For only
by doing so will she truly be able to let nature take its course. Through
personal empowerment comes inner peace, the ability to accept, appreciate
and embrace life."
A very real concern for a lot of people is the inability to conceive a
baby. Each year, more than a million North Americans pursue treatment
Great strides have been made recently in Assisted Reproductive
Technology (ART). A range of medical options are available, however
despite the progress that has been made in the treatment of
"infertility," the success rate for those who undergo high-tech
procedures is currently about 20%.
To boost this success rate and have the very best chance of
conception, women are seeking out complementary treatments such as
acupuncture, homeopathy, herbal remedies, and mind/body approaches.
One of the most powerful of these is hypnotherapy. Hypnosis goes
beyond simple guided imagery, and working with a skilled
hypnotherapist following the guide lines of this program not only
increases the odds of of conception, but also enhances overall health.
Learn how you can double the implantation success rate in this article by Lynsi Eastburn on the Phenomenon of Unexplained Infertility.
A recent Israeli study
showed that the success rate of IVF treatments doubled in his test group
from 14% to 28%, when the subjects underwent hypnosis during implantation.
Professor Eliahu Levitas conducted this study with 185 women. Read some
of his findings on hypnosis for fertility.
Peterson has developed a technique called Body-Centered Hypnosis. Dr.
Peterson has found that high anxiety states in the mother must be reduced
in order to normalize pregnancy and birth. She sites several research
studies that suggest a positive link between fertility and treatments
based on hypnosis. She is a pioneer in the field of mind/body states and
their effects on fertility, pregnancy and birthing. To read more about Dr. Peterson & her work click here.
Dr. Alice Domar has been published in
several important journals, such as Fertility & Sterility
(1990 and 2000) and the Journal of the American Medical Women's
Association (1999). She emphasizes "mind/body" techniques that
include self-hypnotic suggestions to reduce stresses that interfere with
conception and healthy pregnancy. Domar is the author of Conquering
Infertility, and other books on the topic.
Dr. Ernest L. Rossi
specializes in psychobiology, or the relationship between the mind and
physical body states. He has done extensive research to suggest that human
genes must be in a state of physical readiness for conception to take
place, and that hypnotic-type suggestions can activate specific genes,
including the IL-1, c-fos, and the CYP17 in a specific order.
At the Institute of Applied Psychology in
Lisbon Portugal, a team of researchers led by Katharina Hirschenhauser has
concluded that men who actively want to be fathers automatically adjust
their testosterone levels at exactly the right time (the middle of their
partners' menstrual cycles). Perhaps there is
no better hypnotic suggestion for a male partner than the idea that he
wants to become a father.
