Why You Might Not Be Getting Pregnant Even Though You’re Doing Everything Right 

Is your body ready for pregnancy?

Why aren’t you getting pregnant?

If you’re like most people, you probably have no idea.

According to the CDC, infertility is generally defined as not being able to conceive after one year or more of unprotected sex, and for those age 35 and over, 6 months. Having trouble getting pregnant is common, and it’s a frustrating, emotional rollercoaster of trial and error, ups and downs, dealing with expensive and often painful treatments. One-third of the time, the cause of a person’s infertility remains unknown.

The response to infertility is usually “what can we do about it?”. Most fertility procedures attempt to fix the problem by addressing the symptoms of infertility, rather than understanding the root cause of why someone is unable to get pregnant. Does it make sense to inject hormones and fertility drugs into a body that isn’t even ready to become pregnant in the first place?

What we need to start doing is asking “why is this happening?”. Understanding exactly why your body doesn’t want to become pregnant is the first step in a treatment that actually works.

Simone’s infertility wasn’t due to a hormone deficiency—so why was it being treated with hormone therapies?

Simone’s infertility story brings to light a situation that we, unfortunately, see all the time: people think they’re doing everything right to get pregnant, yet to no avail.

Even after trying a number of exhaustive treatments—acupuncture, IUI (Intrauterine Insemination), fertility drugs, IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization)—while leading a textbook healthy lifestyle as a licensed nutritionist, Simone was still not pregnant after 6 years of persistent effort. Why? Because her infertility wasn’t being understood properly. While these treatments can certainly help people who are deficient in certain hormones related to pregnancy, that wasn’t Simone’s problem. 

Looking at your unique internal chemistry is the first step in understanding your infertility.

You can do your best to dot all the i’s and cross the t’s on a one-size-fits-all protocol. Unfortunately, the shoe doesn’t always fit. If everyone were the same, then why are so many unable to get pregnant? There must be something unique about us as individuals that isn’t being addressed, and it just makes sense to find out what those individual needs are so we are better equipped to conceive and have a healthy pregnancy.

According to “Biomarkers of Kidney Disease” (Second Edition), 2017, a biomarker is “a characteristic that is objectively measured and evaluated as an indicator of normal biological processes, pathogenic processes, or pharmacological responses to therapeutic intervention”. What that basically means is that biomarkers are key indicators in your internal chemistry of how and what is keeping your engine running, so to speak. Normal biomarkers indicate that your bodily functions are working together to achieve homeostasis, or balance. Biomarkers that are out of whack can wreak havoc on your body and contribute to the development of infertility, discomfort and disease.

The state of our internal chemistry has a lot to do with the ability to get pregnant and function normally. Even if we eat right, exercise, stay hydrated and get plenty of sleep, there could still be chemical imbalances beneath the surface that we are unaware of. Imbalances sometimes present themselves as undesirable symptoms, such as trouble digesting foods resulting in gas or bloating, constipation, skin breakouts, insomnia, autoimmune disorders, anxiety, or pain. Oftentimes, they go completely undetected.

The best tests that can help pinpoint the areas where you need support are those that check your metabolic, hormonal and organ functions, as well as the pH and electrolyte balance of your internal terrain. It should give insight into how well you are absorbing, or not absorbing, nutrients, measure hydration and toxicity levels, as well as inflammation. For healthy pregnancies, tests that check for levels of copper, zinc, folate, and CoQ10 are important not only for your own health, but also for the health of your baby. Sometimes, taking a food sensitivity test can be very helpful in eliminating stress caused by specific foods on your digestive tract and elimination system.

Going beneath the surface to learn more about your biomarkers will enable you to identify imbalances and misalignments. Once you know for sure, then it’s easier to take the necessary steps to modify your diet, lifestyle, and supplement intake to help optimize your body for pregnancy and increase your chances of being able to conceive naturally.

Test, Rather Than Guess — Biochemical Wellness Analysis Testing 

When Simone first came to see us in 2016, the first step she took was taking the Biochemical Wellness Analysis (BWA) Test, which is a non-invasive, urine and saliva test that analyzes 14 internal biomarkers. It produces a detailed report which measures pH levels, hydration, toxicity and inflammation levels, organ and kidney function, how well a person metabolizes carbohydrates and proteins, how one digests food and absorbs nutrients, as well as the ability of one’s cells to recover and regenerate.

During her initial visit, Simone understood that repairing her internal chemistry and getting her body aligned would help calm her nervous system and take her body out of stress, which could increase her chances of getting pregnant.

Simone’s test results showed that her liver and kidneys were not working properly. Her adrenal glands were weak, and there were other imbalances that needed to be corrected in relation to that. Once she saw her test results on paper, Simone was given an all-natural supplement protocol to begin repairing the areas of her body that needed attention. Simone’s mind and body were finally at ease, knowing exactly what was going on, as opposed to having to guess for 6 years prior, as she was trying so hard to conceive.

Simone always had the gut feeling that she wasn’t deficient in the fertility drugs or hormones that she was previously prescribed while trying to conceive. Rather, the key was to address the root causes of her infertility and bring everything into balance to work properly, and in sync with each other. Now, she had the tools and guidance to give her body a chance to produce the right hormones naturally.

Fast forward to May 2018, Simone has a 17-month-old healthy, happy daughter, and at 42 years old, is currently 8 months pregnant with her second baby girl!

Simone now works as one of the Nutrition Alignment Specialists at Human Garage. She is thrilled that she now gets to use her experience to give hope and guidance to women who are experiencing infertility or are preparing their bodies for a healthy pregnancy.

If you think that taking the BWA Test is something that could help you, call Human Garage Customer Care to take the test or request an appointment to speak with one of our Nutrition Alignment Specialists. We look forward to helping you along your journey to a happy, healthy pregnancy!

Self Love & Self Care are 2 things we as humans neglect sometimes & I’m a big advocate for it. Being in top shape Mind, Body & Soul are so important for me to perform at the top level. A few months ago I was in some pain & having some head problems & really wanted to get to the bottom of it, and do something to help my arthritis & fatigue/headache issues I was having. A friend suggested I contact @briandonahoehg @humangaragela and I have been so amazed at not only the incredible people that work there, but how much better I feel & my performance on the field. They do so many techniques I had never encountered before & their “torquing” method is something they developed to essentially find the root of the problem. I wish I could explain to you everything they do, I can’t because they are always coming up with something new to make me feel my best. Between the cranial work, torquing methods, chiro, fascia releases, energy testing, vitamins etc I have never been more in tune with my body. Yes, this is how many people actually work on you at once. They are a family and the environment they have created not only heals but it makes you laugh thus putting you in a positive mindset everytime you walk in. I can’t thank the Human Garage Team enough for all they have done & continue to do for me!! If you all have any questions let me know..but check out their page🙌🏼👊🏼💪🏼 📸 @alexandriacheng #health #wellness #humangarage #la #torque #painfree #yourbestself #mindset #fascia #release #strength #mind #body #soul #positive #energy #healing #concussions #cranialwork #chiropractic
