The Ayurvedic Guide to Fertility
A Natural Approach to Getting Pregnant
When a woman wants to have a child - whether it’s now or in the future - she often wonders, “When is the right time for me to get pregnant?” And if a woman has actually tried to get pregnant and is having, difficulty, this thought shifts to, “Why can’t I get pregnant and what can I do to make it happen?”.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 10 percent, or 6.1 million, women in the United States have difficulty getting pregnant or staying pregnant each year.
In The Ayurvedic Guide to Fertility: A Natural Approach to Getting Pregnant, author and Ayurvedic practitioner Heather Grzych offers a gentle, holistic approach to understanding the physical, emotional, psychological, and environmental aspects of fertility based on Ayurveda, an ancient form of medicine that originated in India that means “the science of life.”
“I want to help you improve your overall health and your chances for conception so that you will have a better pregnancy and more ease as a mother down the road,” writes Heather. “Modern life has helped get you here, and now Ayurveda can help you better care for your fertility going forward.”
The Ayurvedic Guide to Fertility outlines key fertility factors for women to consider as they prepare for pregnancy. The book provides practical exercises and practices that help women get down to the business of improving their health and setting up their environment to support their intentions. With insight and personal understanding, Heather helps women address conditions that affect reproductive health so that they can activate channels that have been dormant or blocked.
“In writing this book, I intend not so much to tell you how to become pregnant but rather to help you be your healthiest self on both an emotional and physical level before you become pregnant,” writes Heather. “If you want to have a child, you must first start with making your own life healthy, wonderful, and beautiful. Your partner should do the same thing, and then the two of you can move forward together on your journey with clarity, integrity, healthy bodies, and healthy minds.”
