The role of the traditional Ayurvedic purification treatments, known as Panchakarma, in The Raj Fertility Program is three-fold.
The first function is to remove blockages and impurities that have compromised the biochemistry of the reproductive tissues to allow for proper functioning.
The second is to remove toxins in both the ova and sperm. The ideal process of child development begins with both parents, at least 6 months before conception, In order for the baby to arrive balanced and healthy, each parent’s contribution to the formation of the zygote must be as healthy and pure as possible.
The third role of our purification treatments is to ensure a healthy environment in which the fetus can grow to maturity. This is especially timely since the current level of environmental toxins has created a situation where preconception purification is almost a necessity. In utero toxins are now being linked to the unprecedented rise in neurological disorders and learning disabilities. The Raj Panchakarma treatments taken prior to conception help to purify the mother’s system, so that when she does conceive, the developing fetus is not exposed to an overwhelming toxic load.
In order to have the most significant impact on the health of future children, it is ideal for both parents to have purification treatments prior to conception. Through these time-tested Ayurvedic treatments, the physiologies of both the father and mother can be cleansed of both water-soluble and fat-soluble toxins. In this way, each parent contributes the finest reproductive material. The effect of The Raj Ayurvedic treatments in eliminating both toxins has been verified by published research since 2002.
A published study in Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, Sept/Oct. 2002 showed that a five-day program of Panchakarma at The Raj resulted in a 50% reduction of blood levels of fat-soluble toxins such as PCBs, DDT and dioxins. Currently modern medicine offers no means of removing these fat-soluble environmental chemicals from the body. The half-life of these chemicals in the human body is thought to be 7 to 11 years. (A half-life is the time required for a given substance to fall to half its initial value.)
Environmental toxins affect fertility on many levels, Many women in their 30’s and 40’s have difficult time conceiving because of low amounts of progesterone in their bodies. While this can be a natural result of perimenopause, many researchers feel that the presence of estrogen-mimicking environmental chemicals such as pesticides, plastics, and herbicides, are also to blame. When the body absorbs these chemical, it gets tricked into thinking that estrogen levels are too high and compensates by lowering progesterone levels. Progesterone levels are very important for conception.
Once the impurities are removed from the tissues, the body is more able to respond to the dietary and behavioral changes of the parents-to-be.
