Trying to Conceive – Emotions and The Five Elements

Emotions are classified into five predominant states: joy, rumination, sadness, fear, and anger. These states correspond to the five evolving elements of fire, earth, metal, water, and wood. The five emotions are generated by the activities of the five organ networks when they are stimulated by external change. Thus the emotions are a manifestation of the energy of the organ networks and may be thought of as the motivation energy of the body.
 
The continual shift of emotional states is a natural phenomenon. Most children embody this spontaneity, moving through and experiencing a range of feelings in a short period of time without getting stuck. However, dwelling on one particular emotion will disrupt the natural cycles of energy transformation and circulation within the body and throw stress upon the corresponding organ. If dwelling on one emotion continued to excess, the stress from imbalance can result in disease.

Emotions are classified into five predominant states: joy, rumination, sadness, fear, and anger

Anger, the emotion of the liver network, rises so that the energy is strongest in the head and shoulders. The nervous system, which corresponds with the wood element, extends the energy of the liver-gall-bladder network and developed like a tree. The rising motion of the liver’s energy can be seen when a person becomes angry, causing the blood to rush to the head and face, and the face becomes red. The energy from anger can be used constructively to get through a situation of persistent obstruction with confidence. However, high blood pressure, headaches, and pain in the neck, shoulders, and head may be the consequences of prolonged anger. In severe situations stroke and heart attack may result.
 
Joy, the emotion of the heart- small intestine network, concentrates energy in the chest, allowing the opening of our hearts to promote acceptance and love. Our indulging in happiness causes our heart energy to become dispersed, though, affecting the functions of the other organ networks as well. Imbalance arising from extreme joy and excitement may present abnormal heartbeat, palpitation, dizziness, tiredness, and in severe instances, fainting or loss of consciousness.
 
Grief or sadness is the emotion of the lung-large intestine network. Though the heaviest of all emotional energies, sadness produces tears that wash away pain, sorrow, and anguish. In healthy expressions, the tenderness of sadness promotes empathy, caring, and understanding, which bring out the humanity in all of us.
 
Fear, the emotion of the kidney-bladder network, concentrates this system’s energy downward to the abdomen and lower extremities. The abdomen is where one’s physical essence is stored and can be accessed. Therefore it is not surprising that far is the greatest motivator of human behaviour. Fear in excess creates paralysis rather than action, and is the single biggest obstacle to achieving our full potential. Extreme fear of pain can cause some people to become addicted to substances. And since fear drives energy downward, extreme fear can cause some people to involuntarily move their bowels or pass urine, and in severe cases they become incontinent. other symptoms of imbalance from fear include pain and weakness in the lower back and legs.
 
Rumination, the emotion of the spleen-pancreas-stomach network, concentrates energy within the brain. When we continually ponder problems, the most frequent symptom experienced is insomnia. In this case, the energy stays in the brain at night instead of following its normal course of descending to the lower part of the body, which allows us to sleep peacefully.
Worry, a variation of the energy of the spleen-pancreas-stomach network, coagulates energy so that the body becomes sluggish. When energy congeals from worry, we become unable to do even the smallest of tasks. When the spleen-pancreas-stomach network is unable to transform nutrients and transport waste freely, we become prone to digestive problems.

Easy lifestyle changes for improving sperm quality

The average sperm count for a man has plummeted over the past few decades, so much so the doctors have had to redefine what is ‘normal’. 
Environmental toxins are amongst the prime suspects, the quality of sperm has dropped too, while abnormalities have increased. 
Women’s bodies are also affected although these changes are more complex to track than a sperm count, so have been less comprehensively researched. 
In the case of unexplained infertility or repeated miscarriages both men and women need to be evaluated for environmental toxin exposure it’s not just the woman’s body that may be responsible.
 
Exposure to chemicals have found to increase rates of miscarriage and infertility common toxin such as pesticides, lead, mercury and other heavy metals, addition of chlorine to our drinking water and cigarette smoke have been linked to a wide range of fertility problems in both men and women, including low sperm count, poor sperm motility, increased sperm abnormalities, higher levels of DNA damaged sperm, reduced semen quality, impotence, increase miscarriage, higher rates of endometriosis, failure of IVF  and explained infertility. These are just a few well studied examples from a very long list. 
I am focusing on just two Dioxin and Xenoestrogens

"Excessive heat can lower the sperm count, very hot baths, very hot sauna, electric blankets, heated car seats"

Dioxins are chemicals that are byproducts of industrial processes such as bleaching paper which can interfere with the bodies hormone system, can alter menstrual cycles, increase the risk of endometriosis, lower testosterone levels, lower sperm quality and decrease sperm production. 
 
Dioxins are attracted to and stored in fat -the fat in animals that youreat and in your own body so a healthy body mass index is crucial.
You can control how much of the dioxin you are exposed to – the biggest sources of it is beef, milk, dairy, poultry, meat and eggs.
 
My advice is to limit the intake of animal products and switch to organic meat, low-fat and lean meats when you do want to eat them. Do not exclude facts in general from your diet but reduce animal fats. Coconut oil, nuts and avocado are wonderful healthy fats. 
The second chemical group Xenoestrogens they mimic oestrogen in the body causing confusion to the proper performance of the real oestrogen. The male as well as female body produce oestrogen, although women make much more oestrogen. 
 
It is crucial to the workings of the reproductive system is but is also plays an important role in bone development, growth, circulation and metabolism.
Oestrogens are released into environment in pesticides, plastic, paints and toiletries. 
Where you can again buy organic, do not heat food up in the microwave in plastic containers, do not use surround wrap or cling film, do not put hot food into a plastic containers, tried to reduce phthalates (used in many cosmetics and fragrances) and parabens, stop smoking, limit caffeine, avoid alcohol be mindful of medications.
 
Antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, antidepressants, antihistamines, blood pressure medication, cough medicines, decongestants, diuretics painkillers, sleeping pills, steroids, drugs for ulcers, antifungal medication, migraine medication can all affect sperm quality.
 
Excessive heat can lower the sperm count, very hot baths, very hot sauna, electric blankets, heated car seats 
 
The scientific proof behind living a fertile lifestyle for men and reducing miscarriage for women Dr Bruce Lipton biologist in US he has proven for example that genetic conditions can be overwritten with environmental factors your lifestyle choices actually.

Modern Fertility Medicine

Modern fertility medicine is an amazing technique to help people who have subfertility or fertility challenges get pregnant. 
I have been to many lectures about the developments in embryology which are quite astounding, I am astounded by the science, research and development into this field. How ever I have seen too many women who have been to a fertility clinic, when they have had problems conceiving quickly being given strong drugs with little investigation into the root cause of the problem.
 
The nature of the business of a fertility clinic is to make money so this is not the place to go if you want to know what your best chances are of getting pregnant naturally or on the lowest amount of medication. 

"Infertility patients are often vulnerable, even desperate and they’re also extremely easy to persuade."

There are some great clinics that do observation of a natural cycle and use minimum interventions, however when there are issues with a couple becoming pregnant it is extremely rare that they actually ask the question why? 

They usually go ahead with multiple IVF cycles – if the woman’s age allows and I have seen couple spend tens of thousands of £/$ on their treatment without the clinic perhaps exploring more as to why they are not getting pregnant. It is not financially advantageous for the clinics to do this. 

Of course I understand people want to have the much desired baby as soon as possible but the amount of extremely strong drugs which are taken without perhaps proper investigation into causes of infertility and lifestyle changes are opted for too quickly. 
The individual or couple trying to get pregnant needs patience and so do the support team around that person or couple. 

Infertility patients are often vulnerable, even desperate and they’re also extremely easy to persuade. Some clinics have taken advantage of this driving them towards a quick fix which put financial pressure on them and persuades a person to strong medications or drastic medical interventions. 
 
In my opinion, it is more important to have a diagnosis and evaluate all the options available. I advocate the gentlest course of action starting with a full evaluation of where you are today, general health for the man and the woman and if it becomes necessary starting with low levels of drugs and the gentlest forms of assisted fertility treatment available.
