There are many reasons behind your blocked Fallopian tubes, which lead to your current state of infertility. Sometimes a twist in the tubes or cysts can block your Fallopian tubes while other issues, such as two particular STDs (chlamydia and gonnorrhea) and their connections to pelvic inflammatory disease, can cause your tubes to become blocked. Some physical problems with your Fallopian tubes may only be solved with surgery, so it is important for your doctor to rule out any physical deformities of your Fallopian tubes. After any surgical procedures to correct deformities are complete and you have taken the necessary rounds of antibiotics to treat STDs, if you are still having problems there are some natural treatments that can help you.
There is good news for women who like to drink herbal tea and are trying to get pregnant. Many of the natural herbs and spices used in teas are said to promote better vascular circulation to and away from the Fallopian tubes. If you have endometriosis and your endometrial travels from the uterus to the Fallopian tubes and causes inflammation, then a green tea made with chamomile, ginger, ginseng, red clover and/or calendula can relieve the inflammation. Additionally, the chamomile can soothe your nerves, while the ginseng can give you extra energy for baby-making activities.
Other ingredients that may be steeped in a brewed beverage and clear your blocked tubes are:
- Dong Quai
- Corydalis Root
- Astragalus Root
Full Body Detoxification
It is well known in the world of natural medicine that the number of environmental toxins floating around in a woman's body can cause infertility problems. These toxins present problems in your uterus, your endometrial tissue (the lining of the uterus), your ovaries and the Fallopian tubes. A full body detox takes time, and you have to adhere to a strict lifestyle of all natural products and foods, but it does remove many of the toxins that cause infertility issues.
All-Natural Foods and the Organic-Only Lifestyle
Another natural treatment for infertility is a complete change in diet and dietary lifestyles. There have been some successes with treating infertility issues when patients switched from non-organic foods, hormone-fed animals and harsh cleaning chemicals to a completely organic and all-natural lifestyle. Everything from your eggs and dairy to your meat and produce to your cleaning products has to be completely natural. It is more expensive than the products you were used to consuming, but far less expensive than multiple IVF treatments. Talk to an obstetrics and gynecology doctor, like those at Women First OBGYN, about foods and products that you could easily switch to if you are not sure a full and radical overhaul is something you can commit to right now.
