The Kardashians are never shy about letting fans get a glimpse of their personal lives, even when the information being revealed is a bit strange. In a recent episodes of their reality show much of the focus has been on the ups and downs of Kourtney’s relationship with Travis Barker as they deal with different issues. One of the biggest issues they have faced is trying to have kids together.
Why Did a Doctor Tell Kourtney Kardashian to Drink Travis Barker’s Sperm?
On the newest episode of their Hulu reality series Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker were meeting with a woman named Martha Soffer who seemed to be an expert in holistic medicine specifically in the Ayurvedic field. During the appointment Kourtney revealed some worries she had about her thyroid levels. The thyroid is responsible for creating hormones, and if there is an imbalance in its production levels it can lead to pregnancy problems such as premature birth or miscarriage.
The doctor’s suggestion to help keep her hormones in harmony was for Kourtney Kardashian to drink Travis Barker’s sperm four times a week. She didn’t explain the science behind that suggestion, but apparently the doctor believed this would have a profound impact in terms of preventing infertility. It seems that Kourtney Kardashian ultimately decided not to go route of drinking Travis Barker’s semen, and instead opted to try a Panchakarma cleanse. Her quest to have a baby with her new husband has been well documented in previous videos.
Details About Kourtney Kardashian’s Panchakarma Cleanse
A Panchakarma cleanse is ayurvedic technique meant to draw out toxins from the body, and cleanse the digestive tract after lubricating the whole body. By cleansing the nervous system, metabolic system, and nutritive system the Panchakarma cleanse restores balance in the body. The term Panchakarma means a ‘five step process’, which can include things like induced vomiting to clear the GI tract, using medicated oil on the rectal area to remove lipid solid waste, and inhaling medicated substances to clear the respiratory tract.
An Ayurvedic practitioner creates a unique plan for each individual partaking in a Panchakarma cleanse, so it’s not clear what techniques Kourtney Kardashian will go through under the direction of her wellness guru. Hopefully it helps their situation, because with Travis Barker being 46, and Kourtney being 43 they are past of the ages that most people would deem safe to have kids.
