Low vagal tone is associated with:
and much higher rates of inflammatory conditions.
Inflammatory conditions include all autoimmune diseases (endometriosis, autoimmune thyroid conditions and more) – which may affect fertility.
Vagal tone is increased through:
1. Slow, rhythmic, diaphragmatic breathing. Breathing from your diaphragm, rather than from your lungs stimulates and tones the vagus nerve.
2. Meditation which promotes feelings of curiosity and care toward yourself.
This short 5 minute breathing meditation, if practiced regularly, will increase your vagal tone – the implications of which are far reaching for fertility.
My recommendation is to practice for 20 minutes daily or twice daily.
If 20 minutes is too long, try practicing for 5 minutes, more often.
All my very best, always,
Your fertility story is the very foundation of the Mindful Fertility process. Even if you’ve done tons of therapy, as you pursue your longing for a child, as your vulnerability increases, as you heal, change your behavior, change your state of consciousness, at every new level of growth and expansion, it’s your fertility story that determines your “success” because the image of a successful cycle is held in your implicit memory – deep in your sub-conscious mind.
One of the very first psychological processes that gets triggered while trying to conceive is self-doubt.
Most women and couples who earnestly begin to practice mind-body medicine, have found that analytical thinking and rational problem solving based on implicit dominant cultural ideas about the body; paradigms that use Newtonian physics to think about matter, paradigms informed by patriarchy, haven’t helped them solve the riddle of their symptoms.
On your journey to conceive you have no doubt become aware of at least one or two waves of despair rising and falling within you. At times you feel down, hopeless, uninspired and unable to find any meaning.
Of course, there is absolutely nothing wrong with your desire for a child. It’s so human, to have some yearning in the heart, some longing for connection, to be met in presence, to be seen, to be heard, to be touched, to be held and to hold.
Let’s talk about the brain again. We know from the findings in neuroscience that the mental and emotional changes we can create through mindfulness are transformational at the very physical level of the brain. By developing the ability to focus our attention on our internal experience in the Mindful Fertility meditations, we are picking up a scalpel we can use to re-sculpt our neural pathways, stimulating growth of areas of the brain that are crucial to mental health and fertility.
