The Mind-Body Fertility Connection

by James Schwartz

The Mind-Body Fertility Connection by James SchwartzMillions of women around the world struggle with infertility. They often seek out expensive medical treatments to promote conception when the true cause of their infertility lies buried in the subconscious mind. 

In my practice, I work with infertility clients every day.  Years ago, I created and developed a program called Hypnosis to Promote Fertility which was specifically designed to work with the mental and emotional components of infertility.  I captured the insights that came from that work in a book called The Mind-Body Fertility Connection®

The mind/body connection is now becoming recognized as one of the most important—and most overlooked—factors in working with infertility.  Millions of women around the world—including over seven million in the U.S. alone—have been diagnosed with unexplained infertility which means there is no physiological explanation for their condition.  Women, today, who struggle with infertility are looking for new information and are eager to learn about other options.  

This book offers a different perspective on the hidden roots of infertility.  As a practitioner who specializes in infertility, I have worked with the subconscious beliefs of thousands of women over the years, and I have gained—and offer here—new and different insights into what I have observed to be the real causes of infertility and the true pathway to conception.  It dissects the feelings, emotions, beliefs and blocks that often need to be addressed in order to become pregnant, and it looks at how those obstacles can be overcome.

Why I Wrote The Mind-Body Fertility Connection

When I first started working with infertility, I quickly began to see how frustrating the diagnosis of “unexplained infertility” was to my clients.  In recent years, this diagnosis has often been replaced by overused phrases like “low ovarian reserve” and “poor egg quality,” and comments like “too old” to conceive naturally.  The “new” descriptors are used so commonly that most clients feel like it is yet another way of saying things are “unexplained,” and that they should consider assisted reproductive technologies.  

The frequent “unexplained” diagnoses led me to take a more in-depth look at infertility.  What impact does the mind and emotions have on fertility?  The diagnosis of “unexplained infertility” means that there is no physiological explanation for the condition, so that suggests that our stressors, our fears and our deep subconscious programming might all be connected to this phenomenon.  

Fertility is connected to intimacy issues, past sexual abuse, abusive family dynamics, inappropriate touching/uncomfortable predatory situations, miscarriages, terminations, past relationships, religious beliefs, societal beliefs and judgements, issues such as guilt and shame, self-esteem concerns, control, perfectionism and the list goes on and on.  Is it realistic for us to believe that none of those issues have any influence on our physical bodies, the stress we feel, or the ability to become pregnant?  If the real causes of infertility are strictly physical and women simply need drugs and medical procedures, then why are the success rates of assisted reproductive techniques so dismal?

With infertility at epidemic proportions, new perspectives in this field are long overdue.  If you want a fresh new look at some of the common blocks and issues that appear to be connected to conception and full-term pregnancy, then you might want to see what this book has to offer.

As a Board Certified Hypnotherapist and the creator of the Hypnosis to Promote Fertility program, I specialize in working with the subconscious mind, and that, I have discovered, is where all of the valuable information and secrets regarding infertility are stored.  Few people work as intimately with the subconscious mind as a hypnotherapist, and very few hypnotists truly specialize and have explored the complicated dynamics of infertility.  What I offer in this book is a different point of view.  As I have worked with the subconscious minds of thousands of women over the years, I have gained—and offer here—a new and different take on what I have observed to be the true causes of infertility.  The Mind-Body Fertility Connection offers an alternative way to help you find your pathway to conception.

The Mind-Body Fertility Connection (Excerpt) 

You've been there before-perhaps dozens of times. The ovulation indicator shows you are nearing your surge, and what started out to be a sense of excitement in your body has come to be replaced by an unmistakable feeling of tension and foreboding.  A million thoughts and feelings swirl through your mind and body: "Will I be able to conceive this time?"  "Why is this so difficult?"     "Am I unworthy to bear a child?"  "Why is it that everyone else can get pregnant but me?" "Did I wait too long?" "Am I too old?" "Why is it that I can be successful at everything else I do, but not this?"   "What is everyone going to think if I can't get pregnant?" more 

My husband and I had been trying to conceive for 3 1/2 years when I found Jim at the Rocky Mountain Hypnotherapy Center. Our journey was painful, however, not uncommon. After a year of trying on our own, we sought fertility intervention. The treatments over the past 2 ½ years consisted of three IUI procedures, a surgery to remove a septum in my uterus, and four IVF procedures as well as countless other non-traditional therapies. The doctors reassured us that everything looked great and they "oohed and aahed" over our "textbook quality" embryos, but I still wasn't pregnant. They told us it can take up to seven IVF cycles for some couples who have unexplained infertility. Three weeks before my fourth IVF, I found Jim. When I came to Jim, I was angry, stressed, tired and depressed. Jim gave me the tools I needed to let go and relax. These tools helped me regain my life and let go of the negative energy that was impeding conception. I have no doubt that the mind-body connection is perhaps the most important factor when trying to get pregnant. I am now almost 8 weeks pregnant, and my husband and I are thrilled! We cannot thank you enough, Jim.

~ Sharon
