Julia Indichova explains her approach to identifying and overcoming subclinical nutritional, and emotional fertility challenges, commonly referred to as unexplained infertility.
Online PR News – 05-July-2011 – New York, New York – “unexplained infertility is one of the most interesting terms in infertility medical jargon,” says Julia Indichova, holistic fertility expert, author, and director of the Fertile Heart Studio in Woodstock, New York (www.fertileheart.com). “When no readily identifiable diagnosis exists, either structural or hormonal, wannabe mothers and fathers are told that they have unexplained infertility.”
According to Indichova, receiving an “unexplained infertility” can be particularly frustrating.
“In my work, unexplained infertility is one of my favorite diagnoses to work with,” says Indichova. “The radically holistic fertility approach of my Fertile Heart Ovum Practice is particularly useful in these instances.”
Indichova says that the diagnosis means that the fertility obstacle, whether a nutritional deficiency, an emotional conflict, or a call of the soul to give birth, has not yet manifested in the physical body.
“As far as I’m concerned this is good news,” says Indichova, whose approach includes such remedies as Fertile Heart Imagery and Body Truth, and the available research on fertility foods and fertility supplements to begin to repair possible nutritional depletion. “These same tools can be useful in identifying the culprits on an emotional level. ”
According to Indichova, the most common mainstream medical approach to “unexplained infertility” is to administer clomid (clomiphene citrate), even though it has been linked to ovarian cancer. The use of Clomid is often accompanied with intrauterine inseminations and, if no pregnancy occurs, the couple will be advised to move on to in vitro fertilization or as many as six menstrual cycles.
“What often happens is that these commonly used fertility drugs silence the body’s call for help,” she says. “Revving up the ovaries with synthetic fertility stimulants may not only further disrupt endocrine function; it can rob aspiring parents of the opportunity for healing.”
Indichova cites a 2002 report in The New England Journal of Medicine that examined the incidence of health problems in babies conceived through in-vitro as well as children conceived through introcytoplasmic sperm injection. Investigators found that 9 percent of babies conceived through such fertility treatments had chromosomal abnormalities, heart, kidney, and urogenital defects, compared to 4.2 percent of babies conceived without treatments.
Achieving a full term pregnancy, whether you are told you have “unexplained infertility” or explained infertility, caused by advanced maternal age, PCOS, endometriosis, fibroids, or poor morphology, is still one of the challenges where certainty eludes even the best and the brightest.
“Something about conceiving a child makes it clear that birth is not the same as manufacture and the creation of a life involves much more than just matching the right egg with the right sperm,” concludes Indichova. “There may be hidden reasons to our unexplained infertility and, with a little patience and humility; we can learn to decode the messages behind our symptoms.”
