Research Study: Stress May Harm A Woman's Fertility

Research Study: Stress May Harm A Woman's  Fertility

(Calgary, AB) A recent article published in Health Day titled "Stress May Harm A Women's Fertility Study Suggests" focused upon a study that was first published March 24, 2014 in the journal Human Reproduction. The study was the first of its kind to show a possible association between stress and how long it takes a woman to become pregnant.
The Study

The authors of the study wanted to investigate the relationship between stress and infertility. To do so, meant having to measure the levels of a specific enzyme linked with stress in the saliva of woman who were trying to get pregnant. The enzyme they measured was called salivary alpha-amylase.

According to the lead researcher "Alpha-amylase is an enzyme that is secreted into the mouth that helps the body start to digest carbohydrates,... It is also linked to the fight-or-flight part of the stress system."

When the study was concluded and only after adjusting for various factors" the researchers found that the women with the highest alpha-amylase levels had a 29 percent lower probability of pregnancy compared to the women who had the lowest levels of the enzyme." (see note 1)

Dr. Dahl's Commentary

When asked to comment on the nature of the study, Life Choice CEO, Dr. Eldon Dahl, (ND) said ..

"This issue is becoming more prevalent due to our life styles. What was deemed a normal aspect of maturation and family development has become a highly stressful ordeal.  Our bodies have become a product of this modern environment: with processed food; lives constantly on the move; and items
that were to make our lives easier, have at the very same time, turned us into slaves in respect to the very same technology."

All of this creates disorder, chaos and stress... we are so grateful to have been given a license for kava for it is the best friend for defeating stress."

Note 1: It should be noted that stress is not the only contributing factor to consider when dealing with issues of infertility. Age, cigarettes, alcohol, caffeine and weight (obesity) are all contributing factors when the discussion centers around fertility vs. infertility.
