Whenever undergoing a holistic treatment such as reflexology, it is extremely important to pay special attention to nutrition. Most holistic nutritionists would agree that is beneficial to consume as much whole grains as possible and to avoid white or processed grains that are one of the best sources for the toxins we build up in our systems. Nutrition like this is extremely important for a PCOS sufferer. Lately reflexology has become increasingly popular: not only as a great tool for relaxation or stress relief, but as a powerful tool to fight some diseases. Reflexology improves circulation, it relieves pain, it detoxifies body, it may help in a recovery process during surgery, and helps boost immunity system. People who suffer from asthma or allergies that include chronic sinus problems may also benefit from reflexology. Reflexology has also been found to help with acid reflux, headaches and migraines.

Related to women health, reflexology was found to be successful in treating PMS, menopause and infertility. All who are struggling with infertility do know that infertility can be an emotionally exhausting, not to mention expensive, condition. However, there is an increasing number of women who claim that reflexology foot massage had helped them conceive. A medical study has been launched to discover if the claims are true. A two year clinic trial was conducted at the Derriford Hospital in Plymouth.
Reflexology is often applied when woman isn't producing eggs, and is as such as substitute to a fertility drug Clomid, which is usually used to induce ovulation. Clomid is a successful option (works in about 70% of patients), but the problem with Clomid is that it may cause multiple pregnancy which is often in correlation with greater risk. Women report that they had fallen pregnant within three weeks, and that they are convinced that the reflexology got their body in working order so they were ready to conceive. And this is exactly what reflexology should do: get your body back in order. Jane Holt, who practices reflexology for more than 20 years claims that she helped a woman who was struggling to get pregnant for 20 years.
