Do not perform this massage while you are on your period or during the five days before you expect your period. Hi, this is Heidi Brockmyre, I’m going to show you how to do the pregnancy priming abdominal massage. Before you want to begin the massage you want to make sure that your bladder’s empty, you’re lying down comfortably and there’s a pillow placed on your knees. After the massage make sure you drink a couple of glasses of water. Start with your finger tips, pressing in it at the center line where your rib cage meets together. Keep your knuckles at a 90 degree angle and gently press firmly into that center.
Line with your fingertips. You’re going to want to press firmly and press slowly and deeply, you might feel some tenderness, and that’s normal and that’s okay. Don’t push too hard to that you’re really in pain, but do breath through and push on the tender parts. Where there’s tenderness, there need some extra attention. We’re going to go along on your right rib cage, this is where your liver is and this helps to detoxify the liver. Same thing, you’re going to support your fingertips with your hands together and just give some firm but slow pressure going deep. You can kind of go deeply under the rib cage. As you can see there, there’s some redness on the belly and.
That’s a good thing, that means blood is circulating. You may also hear some gurgling or feel some movement in your abdomen and that’s a good sign as well, that’s why it’s important to drink water afterwards because you’re helping to detoxify all the organ area. Now you’re going to go along your left rib cage, this is where your stomach is and this is also how to stimulate digestion. Again, just press firmly, slowly, gently, yet deeply down and under the rib cage. If you get tender spots that’s okay, just take a deep breath and you might want to spend a little extra time when you get to a tender spot, just gently and slowly apply pressure and breath, take nice, deep, slow breaths when you get to a.
Tender spot. Going down along side that left rib cage until it meets your waist. Apply deep, firm, gentle pressure. If you get something that’s really painful then you don’t want to force anything in to it, but just when there is a tender spot just give it a little extra time and just keep going deeply into that area but do it a little more slowly. You’re going to just massage your right waist where the rib cage, that there it’s soft but right below the rib cage, right on the waist apply some firm pressure there. Also on your left side, some firm pressure. Again, we’re getting a lot of digestive organs in these.
Areas and detoxing the viscera getting lots of fresh blood flow in there. Your abdomen doesn’t get as much attention as the other areas of your body. About two to three finger widths out from your belly button, you’re going to apply firm pressure with your finger tips, this is another digestive point, it helps to circulate to your reproductive organs as well, it helps also with regular bowel movements. Now you’re going to go out about another couple of inches from there, you’ll start to feel the edge of your muscle, your abdominal muscles, and you’re going to apply pressure there right where the muscle falls off. The muscles are a little firmer in the center and right where.
It falls off you’re just going to want to apply pressure and gently go in, and then you’re going to release the pressure, and then go back in again like I just did inaudible 00:04:19 We’re going to go along the inside of your hip bones. You’re just going to grab your hip bones and pinch them, and the area right inside of . So just follow them all the way up give some nice firm pressure. In this area there’s a lot of ligaments, there’s a lot of fascia, so it really helps to circulate to your uterus and ovaries, loosen it up for a good position of your uterus.
Now you’re going to find your pubic bone with the tip of your finger, and then you’re going to just go up towards your belly button right off at the pubic bone after you find the pubic bone. There, I’m right on top of the pubic bone, and then I’m falling off of it and I’m gently applying pressure, this is right over the uterus. Then I’m going to firmly and gently apply pressure down into the uterus, and then I’m going to work my way up towards the belly button. Again, when you feel any tender spots, if it’s very painful then you can back off, but if it’s just mildly tender or tight then just go more slowly into that area when you apply pressure and spend a little more time in each area. You’re going to just keep working.
How to Get Pregnant Fast My Top 5 Fertility Tips
Hi, I’m Heidi Brockmyre with Fertility TV, and I know that you want to learn how to get pregnant fast, so I’m going to give you my top five fertility tips. Let’s start with tip number one. Supplements. You need to take some basic supplements to help boost your fertility. You probably know that taking a daily prenatal vitamin is one of those supplements. I would suggest that you make sure that you have a good quality supplement. They’re not all created equally. I know sometimes you want to save money and get the cheap, generic kind, but oftentimes you could then just be throwing your money down the tubes because your body can’t really absorb those nutrients. Not all supplements.
Are created equally. Make sure you get a good quality supplement, and I recommend ones that are food based, or there’s a lot of research behind them, because those are ones that your body is able to absorb the nutrients oftentimes better than the other kind. I would also recommend a supplement that has the form of folic acid as folate rather than folic acid. Methyl folate. This is important in the case that your body is unable to absorb folic acid which is for those of you that may be positive for MTHFR factor. You can look into that separately. I’m not going to go into that in this tutorial. A lot of the population is actually positive for MTHFR factor, which means that folic acid isn’t absorbed properly.
Into the system and instead turns into homocysteine levels in our body, which is not good for us, and can cause fertility issues and miscarriage. What you can do is avoid folic acid, but instead take methyl folate. Folate is the form that your body is able to absorb. You do want to make sure you’re getting that folate, but you want to get it in a form that’s going to be helpful, not harmful. I recommend also taking 1000 milligrams a day of fish oil, and that 500 milligrams of that fish oil be DHA. DHA has been an essential fatty acid that’s been proven to improve egg quality, I’m sorry, embryo quality, for those that are going through IVF. It’s also good.
For building it up in your body because it helps with the brain development of the baby when you are pregnant. Again, make sure you get good quality fish oil. Also I recommend taking an antioxidant powder. I recommend a green powder or a berry powder that has a lot of food source antioxidants like spinach and so forth. Not a lot of herbs, because you don’t know what else those herbs can do, but a lot of food source antioxidant nutrients. Antioxidants clear up free radicals in the body, which can cause DNA damage. These antioxidants can help with egg quality as well as sperm quality. I also recommend for your male partner to take a daily vitamin, fish oils 1000 milligrams,.
As well as a daily antioxidant powder. Let’s go to tip number two, important testing. What testing should you do? What is most imperative? I would never discourage you to go to your or a reproductive endocrinologist and get a thorough fertility workup. If you’re not ready to take that step, and you still want to try naturally, and you’re wondering do I need to? Well, one test that could really make the difference is to see if your tubes are open. It’s not the most fun test. In short, it’s called HSG. They put dye inside your tubes and do some imaging and make sure that your tubes are open. You just don’t want to wast a couple of years trying to conceive.
Only to find out later that you tubes are open and it wasn’t possible. I do think that that’s an important test, at least to start with. Step number three, tip number three, dietary recommendations. Increase protein intake. I recommend having protein with your breakfast and protein with every meal. Studies have shown that women that eat higher levels of protein and lower levels of carbohydrates are much more likely to get pregnant and have healthy pregnancies. You want less simple carbs, more protein, make sure you’re having lots of cooked vegetables, and you eat a warm breakfast every day. Don’t skip it. Don’t skip meals. Digestion is the foundation of.
Fertility. Have protein with your breakfast. Tip number four, reduce your stress. Stress constricts blood flow to the reproductive organs, and it also will affect your hormones. You’re going to release more stress hormones and less reproductive hormones, and stress can cause inflammation. We don’t like stress. Try exercise, meditation, Chinese medicine like acupressure, acupuncture, all great for reducing stress. Massage is really good. Also, tip number five would be keep your uterus warm. You want to make sure you keep your feet warm, and you keep your low abdomen and your low back warm. You eat warm foods, soups.
