While women are increasingly aware of emotional root causes in reproductive health, this is a largely unexplored area for men.
Yet, how financially stable a man feels, his level of stress and depletion, and whether he feels emotionally connected are keys to successfully addressing erectile dysfunction, low libido, and prostate health.
Reproductive health does not end with menopause and andropause. Our hormones still play a role in supporting bone, mind, blood, muscle etc. Healthy libido can continue past andropause for men.
For all of us, the reproductive system is tied to emotional needs. When these needs are unmet, it creates unhealthy patterns in the correlated parts of our nonphysical systems. Imbalances in the nonphysical parts of us are root causes which then create disease and dysfunction patterns in the physical parts of us.
While the chakras remain an abstract concept for most, they are linked to the function of our glands, and the reproductive system/endocrine system is especially affected.
That’s all we need to understand to see the importance of addressing emotional root causes when healing any reproductive or sexual dysfunction, from infertility to cancer.
Here’s a simple self exploratory set of questions to see how well supported your reproductive system is by your emotional states.
Do I feel well nourished and able to manage my stress levels?
Do I feel safe to express my feelings - e.g. they are heard, validated, and responded to?
Do I feel capable of meeting my basic needs to live well?
Do I have the ability to be vulnerable with others?
Do I feel secure in who I am, and how I am choosing to live my values?
More “yes” answers are what we want to head towards for greater emotional wellness. In essence, the self inquiry above is a list of core emotional needs to support your reproductive systems.
