Infertility and the Mind-Body Connection


Psychotherapist Helen Adrienne was the radio show guest on In Search of Fertility.  She wrote the book On Fertile Ground: Healing Infertility.  The mind-body connection can be used to lower stress.  Helen writes about “letting go” techniques like hypnosis and imagery. Positive thinking is a plus, and Helen quotes one of her clients whose Irish grandmother used to say “think a good, get a good.”   Helen concludes that out of the adversity of infertility can come life change and unseen benefits. I know that for myself after five  IVF trials with my own eggs and two more with donor eggs, I now am able to handle most things that come my way.
