A 31-year-old woman has resistant ovarian syndrome. She’s been trying to conceive but has been told she’s going through the menopause. She eats well, takes exercise and doesn’t smoke. IVF was unsuccessful and she is reluctant to try again without trying more natural remedies. What can she do to promote self-healing? Try false unicorn root, a valuable herbal tonic to the reproductive system, or royal jelly supplements to aid with fertility. Macca is also a supplement to balance the hormones. Chiropractic manipulation is often effective as well, clearing areas of tension. One reader suggests contacting Foresight (www.foresight-preconception.org.uk), a charity helping to promote natural fertility. Also, the conception problem could be linked to amalgam dental fillings (in either partner). If amalgam fillings are present, a dentist experienced in the removal of mercury should replace them with white fillings. If this is the problem, the situation should improve within 3 to 6 months of complete amalgam replacement. For the purpose of IVF, one woman found that the addition of HGH (human growth hormone) made a big difference. The most natural way to increase HGH is to take colostrums, which has human growth factors in it. She took the doses recommended for cancer patients and her eggs grew quickly with her next IVF. In addition, a good acupuncturist can help with ovulation problems and IVF success rates.
