Isreali study proves hypnosis can double IVF success rate. Eliahu Levitas, a professor from Isreal and his team from Soroka Hospital in Beersheva, Isreal wanted to see if hypnosis could make the embryo transfer stage of IVF more successful. According to Levitas, stress can cause complications during the transfer that can put the procedure at risk. “Other techniques have been employed like relaxants and tranquilizers, but nothing has worked well. On the other hand, hypnosis has been known for many years for producing central relaxation, and has even been used before surgical interventions to calm patients,” said Levitas.

Not that the ideas seem all that revolutionary. Stress could interfere? Really. As a hypnotist I would never have guessed. Ok, so I am being a bit overly sarcastic. I have a friend who is wound up tighter than a spring. She had one child and hoped for another, so she went through IVF several times. With each unsuccessful attempt she became more upset and manifested even more physical ailments.

The good news is, she finally was able to adopt the most adorable children on the face of this planet. She loves them and they are a delight to behold.

This study sure could make Father’s Day possible for alot more men!
