Effective Mind-Body Strategies to Reduce Stress of Infertility and Improve Mental Health
Research has shown that our mental state affects the outcomes of treatment in all disease conditions, including infertility, where it may decrease the chances of conception. Couples dealing with infertility go through immense stress, often times severe depression, as the follow up and treatment of infertility itself may cause anxiety and depression.
March is Mental Health Month and we are talking to practising psychologist Dr. Alice Domar of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a pioneer in the field of mind/body medicine. She conducts ongoing ground-breaking research which focuses on the relationship between stress and various medical conditions, the impact of cognitive behavioral interventions, as well as the impact of lifestyle habits on mental and physical health. She has been a keynote speaker and workshop leader at conferences worldwide.
In this webinar Dr. Domar will highlight effective mind-body strategies to reduce stress, decrease physical/psychological symptoms of a disease, and develop a positive mental state which may increase the chances of conception. She will also talk about strategies to improve general mental health.
