Pregnancy – Conceiving Naturally

Following on from the previous post by Acupuncturist Laura Jones about the menstrual cycle she now talks about conceiving naturally.

“I think nowadays many of us believe falling pregnant is going to be easy… But unfortunately 1 in 7 couples are said to be struggling to conceive here in the UK (2013 NHS stats) that’s approximately 3.5 million people! Almost 30% of these cases are unexplained. For those going through that turbulent time of trying to conceive without success, the idea of there being “a problem” can be all consuming and scary. Often leaving either or both partners feeling guilty and helpless… Many emotions fluctuate and can cause anxiety, stress, depression… It’s unique to each person and that in turn can disrupt your insides!

Conceive

There’s a very delicate balance of hormones required of both parties in order to fall pregnant let alone making sure you’re utlitisng the optimum time in the woman’s cycle! It’s amazing we conceive at all! 

Acupuncture can really help get things moving with natural Fertility, I’m very happy to say I’ve helped women fall pregnant without any of the synthetic drugs or invasive procedures many women immediately opt for. At the end of my series of posts surrounding this subject I will write an FAQ all about Acupuncture and Fertility. But if you want to find out more or get the ball rolling please call me to book a free consultation to meet me at either Cedar Hall Clinic in Stanford le Hope or Thundersley, Benfleet. You’re not alone”

Cupping & Tui Na

CuppingCupping can be used to find the zones causing pain and stiffness and relieve them of their stagnation. These marks are textbook for localised pain and typical of someone suffering from Fybromyalgia. They’re not too dark or densely speckled and you’ll notice not every placement produced the marking… Followed up by some Tui Na (Chinese massage) . The relief a patient feels post treatment is extraordinary! A patients words after treatment  today were “I feel so much lighter and free”
This patient used to see our Acupuncturist Laura Jones every week for 6 weeks to manage her symptoms then gradually spaced treatment out so now she is seen once a month. 
Acupuncture and cupping isn’t painful.

These marks will slowly fade as the body removes the waste and allow for better blood flow therefore less painYou can make an appointment to try cupping or acupuncture or both!

Free consultations available if you want to find out more before giving it a go

Your body. One whole complex piece

Your body works as one whole complex piece! We have the tendancy to compartmentalise our bodies and focus on one bit at a time when there’s an issue. Often at times forgetting that emotion strongly affects physiology and that our organs feel stress too!

Where do you feel your worry? Fear? Joy? Anger? Grief? As just one example – you might feel “sick to the stomach” with worry….

Think about how you experience health and illness and view your body inside and out as a whole system

Knowing Your “Empty” Warning Signs

Living with chronic health conditions can be a struggle

When treating patients with chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Kidney disease or similar….I find myself always explaining the notion of knowing your “empty warning sign” or “red line”.

Often patients who suffer these complaints have to or want to keep up with day to day demands of their lives. Whether that’s work demands, house hold tasks, childcare or just staying above the water with their symptoms it can be a real struggle. During their acupuncture treatments a stage of symptom management is met usually fairly quickly and the patient feels more accessible energy and dampened negative symptoms which invigorates them to do more.

fibromyalgia-symptoms

Doing more is absolutely great and I encourage it but what I see and hear in 8/10 cases is “I felt great so I caught up on X Y or Z and now I feel so very tired, I don’t know what’s happened.”

So what’s going on here?

Well what these patients hear from me next is my explanation for energy management when achieving balance for treatment progression and stability! Think of yourself as a car with a fuel gauge.  When you are working, cleaning or caring for others you are using vital energy, when we are ill we don’t have much energy spare so we tend to conserve or over use and feel drained. In this state you are often always on the “red line” and burning your reserves into fumes! So when you intially feel more energetic and able like you’ve got a quarter tank, burn it all up miss the empty warning light for the “red line” and burn straight back into fumes; starting at the point you wanted to get away from!

In order to rebuild your energy you need to know what your body uses as your warning light!!! You cannot replenish on fumes every time.  Signs from the body usually include; light headedness or dizziness, aching, burning or dry eyes, sore joints and of course feeling tired.

Many chronic suffers ignore these signs so they feel they are “fighting” their condition but really they’re fighting themselves. If you listen to your signs, sit and relax, eat something nutritious and rest your body for half an hour or so you’ll find you recover and get past your red line and rebuild your reserve rather than burning out. Listen to your body regularly and realise this is not your giving in to weakness but restoring your strength!
