Yoga is essentially a spiritual discipline based on an extremely subtle science which focuses on bringing harmony between mind and body.
Stress has been proved to be one of the major causes for infertility. Chronic stress triggers the production of cortisol, the fight-or-flight hormone that activates the sympathetic nervous system. This often knocks other hormones out of balance and boosts levels of epinephrine (adrenaline) and other stimulating neurotransmitters, while suppressing calming ones - like progesterone, which helps sustain a pregnancy.
Chronic stress is perceived as "threat for survival" by the body & thus responds with a storm of molecular signals announcing that this individual might not be able to sustain another life.
Many of our modern-day medical issues are a result of a pile-up between stress and poor eating and living habits. When stressed, we skip meals, consume more caffeine and sugar for energy, and tend to eat more of fast-food meals or processed foods. In addition to messing with our blood-sugar and hormone levels, these foods hardly provide any nutrition. As a result, they put additional stress on our bodies and demand more metabolic resources.
Yoga asanas, Pranayama & relaxation techniques are a perfect balance of physical movement, breathing and relaxation," which can moderate the stress response, thereby crafting more favourable conditions for a healthy pregnancy. Studies have shown that Yoga & mediation can literally change our brain cells. Specific relaxation techniques like Mind Sound Resonance Technique developed by SVYASA Yoga University have been proved to reduce stress and anxiety and bring better outcomes in IVF treatment.
