A Mind-Body-Spirit Approach to Conception

  • A practical guide that empowers women to create the optimal conditions for conception
  • Ayurveda is known as the “sister science” to yoga, which 27 million women in the US practice
  • Suggests lifestyle practices, including diet and exercise, that align women with nature and the environment and are also compatible with mainstream medical options
  • Includes support for uncovering and healing emotional blocks that hamper conception

    To be or not to be a mother is a question that increasing numbers of women postpone answering until their fertility has diminished. Heather Grzych knows this firsthand. As someone who spent most of her adult life trying not to get pregnant, she grappled with conception in her midthirties but faced many challenges. In the midst of this reckoning, she left her successful corporate life and became one of only a few people in the United States with an advanced degree in Ayurvedic medicine. In Ayurveda, she found a gentle, holistic approach to understanding the physical, emotional, and psychological aspects of fertility. She shares that understanding — which led to the birth of her son — in this comprehensive guide. She describes optimum health practices, which include diet and lifestyle choices, engagement with the environment, and recognition of one’s life history. With insight and personal understanding, she helps women address the fears, blockages, and conflicts that affect reproductive health so that they can activate channels that have been dormant or blocked. In this empathic woman-to-woman guide, Grzych helps readers create the best possible circumstances for conception naturally, holistically, and joyfully.
