Progesterone, aka “promoter” (pro) of “gestation” (gesterone) is the number one reason women come to see me. It is considered to be safe to have too much progesterone which will naturally reach high levels during pregnancy, and more than likely if you are experiencing early miscarriages, difficulty with egg implantation, and even unexplained infertility, progesterone levels most likely need to be increased.
How do you go about doing that? The first thing to know is that progesterone is sensitive. It’s the most likely hormone to be affected by stress first, and it’s triggered by the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG), the hormone that immediately starts to increase once you are pregnant and is the reason you see a plus sign in a pregnancy test or pee stick. Once HCG is triggered, progesterone and estrogen also start to steadily increase in healthy pregnancies. It’s in part because of progesterone that your body isn’t rejecting your baby’s foreign DNA by increasing your TH2 (responsible for your antibody cells) and decreasing your TH1 (responsible for your killer cells).
So how can it go wrong? Cortisol. Cortisol can make it all go very wrong. Cortisol suppresses progesterone. That’s WHY everyone has heard the stories about a couple trying everything and then suddenly getting pregnant on a trip once they had decided to either take a break or cool it all-together on conceiving.
How I help you get pregnant primarily is by helping you to lower the stress in your life, which is indicative of the hormone cortisol in your body. There are many things you can do on your own: eat healthy foods to lower stress on your digestive system, make sure you are free of any parasites or hidden bacteria’s (auto-immune disorders) which also puts strain on the body. You can meditate, use calming essential oils and connect with nature. You can address adrenal fatigue with supplements and your thyroid. Truthfully, you can do many, many things to reduce your cortisol, and that will all help.
The part of the puzzle that is often most difficult for people is addressing the stress in their lives that they aren't even aware of. "You don't know what you don't know." And even with people are aware of the source of the stress in their life, a strained relationship with a parent for example, they may not know how to address it and overcome it on their own.
This is the piece of the puzzle that is my specialty. Using many different techniques such as EFT, hypnosis for which I am certified, my innate psychic ability, and my intense ability to listen and observe, I help uncover the moment in time when the stress switch was turned on, and turn it off.
