In vitro Fertilization costs about twenty thousand dollars a session. It is only 10% effective. A patient can typically require four to five sessions, which can exceed $100,000 in costs. A major reason for this expense is because women are more stressed than ever, which is a leading cause of infertility. They are starting a family later, typically at 37 years of age and higher. They are experiencing a lot of pressure from work and family members.
While it is hard to believe, it’s so important that I’ll state it again. A major reason for infertility is stress. Chiropractic addresses the negative effects of stress directly by working with the central nervous system. The part of our nervous system most commonly associated with stress is the sympathetic nervous system. The adjustment of spinal joints has direct effects to the central nervous system and the sympathetic nervous system. Additionally, the adrenal glands also known as the stress glands are the only glands in the body that have a direct neurological connection via the spinal cord.
After obvious medical conditions have been addressed, the first overall step with regard to infertility is to evaluate and adjust the sacrum and atlas to reduce sympathetic overload (the actual result of stress). The pubic symphysis is often overlooked in most patients, but it is especially important regarding fertility. Pubic symphysis subluxations can torque the fallopian tubes. There are specialized maneuvers for adjusting the pubic bone region and are non-painful.
Another key to improving the probability of success is to remove heavy metal toxicity. While we may think of pregnancy as being a hormonal thing, the nervous system regulates the endocrine system, and heavy metal toxicity can interfere with nerve signals. Removing heavy metals can often be accomplished without having to use intravenous chelation therapy methods. Chlorella and other specialized nutritional supplements have been shown to be beneficial. A related issue is drug toxicity. Many people do not realize that medications can cause infertility. For example, inhalers can cause sterility and Crohn’s disease.

We all know that the natural birth process has been turned into a pathological disease process. It is important to understand that getting pregnant shouldn’t require hundreds of thousands of dollars of hi-tech medical interventions. Often the body can resume its normal healthy physiology without hi-tech methods. Many women who were considered medically not able to conceive have gotten pregnant with the help of chiropractic methods.
The first time I became aware of this concept was 28 years ago. I had recently graduated. One day I walked into a restaurant and I noticed a table full of women and one of them was pointing at me, quite emphatically. I went over to her table and realized she was a patient who came in once for a headache. She was almost yelling, “This is the man who got me pregnant” After vehemently stating that I never touched her, she explained that she was told that she could never get pregnant and after that first treatment she did and that she always attributed to me. At the time I was more inquisitive to know if her headaches went away, which they did. I reviewed her records and of course she didn’t note infertility on the intake questionnaire. But I’ve found most patients don’t give a complete history because they don’t see how their conditions could be associated with their central nervous system. (Spine) Apparently, at the time I didn’t even think it was possible; I was too relieved knowing that I wasn’t being named in a paternity suit. After discussing this with many colleagues, I realized that this might have been more than a coincidence. As of now, the literature is inundated with anecdotal evidence. While this is not considered a scientific double blind study, considering the costs of in vitro fertilization and weighting them against the possible amazing benefit of chiropractic, you might want to consider putting off waiting for the day that an institution decides to study this phenomenon in more depth. The worst thing that can happen is what usually happens with chiropractic patients; things you didn’t bother to mention get better.
