Some common autoimmune diseases include:

  • Type 1 Diabetes
  • Celiac Disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Psoriasis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Lupus

Natural Fertility Boosters

There are many things women can do to help boost their chances of getting pregnant. While fertility boosting drugs may be the right choice for some women, these alternative therapies are a great option for others.

  • Hypnosis

When the word hypnosis is spoken most people’s minds go to the guy on stage hypnotizing someone to cluck like a chicken. But real hypnosis is actually an alternative therapy that can remove blocks in the mind, and it can help with relaxation. In fact, the American Medical Association has even sanctioned this therapy and it is being taught at major medical schools. Hypnosis helps with fertility by relieving stress. Being overly stressed can actually mess up the healthy balance of hormones in a woman’s body, which is needed in order to ovulate and be fertile.
