An Alternative Fertility Treatment
Astrology is all about time.
Most doctors will agree with the statement that sometimes with fertility treatment, especially where there are no specific problems, that it is simply “not the right time”. This is not comforting to the patient, who is usually desperate to fall pregnant. An astrologer can help by pin-pointing fertile moments in a chart and getting the couple to accept the nature of time and patience. There can be up to three of these astrologically fertile moments in a year in anyone’s chart, at child bearing age of course, and it would benefit both the patient and the doctor if patients could use astrology to time their treatments.
Battling to fall pregnant, or infertility, means trying to conceive for more than a year, (or six months if you’re over 35), or already having a documented infertility issue like anovulation or Male Factor Infertility. Infertility is commonly defined as the inability to get pregnant, or maintain a pregnancy, after adequately trying for 12 months (and in some cases for a full six months) without medical assistance. Astrology is uniquely positioned to address illness in the sense that illness is seen as a journey of self-identity. This is in keeping with the genre of narrative medicine, established by doctors in the 1990s, that has shown that fiction heals.
Nicola Smuts Allsop advocates using astrology in an integrated way that includes all aspects of healing, including acupuncture, homeopathy and herbalism.
All she needs is a birth date, the time of day (nearest) you were born and the town where you were born. If it is a small village, and not on a map, then use the next nearest town east or west. The same information is needed for the partner, gestational carrier or egg donor. Clients can either consult with her directly or make use of her recently launched app.
