Here are some simple (generic) steps toward achieving your Fertility Makeover. Honestly, it’s not rocket science. Some of the very same things that work for VARIOUS DISEASE PROCESSES and hormonal issues are used to treat people with Infertility.
1. CONTROL YOUR WEIGHT:
If you are either overweight or underweight, your chances of getting pregnant diminish substantially. Plainly stated, if you are having trouble getting pregnant and are overweight, you’ll have to LOSE IT.
2. CONTROL BLOOD SUGAR:
Uncontrolled Blood Sugar is being intimately tied to virtually every single health problem under the sun, including PCOS. The known cause of PCOS is Uncontrolled Blood Sugar. Fix your blood sugar (including HYPOGLYCEMIA) and you have just solved the major cause of infertility! Even if you have not (yet) been diagnosed with DIABETES.
3. MAKE THE NECESSARY CHANGES TO YOUR DIET:
If you really want to have a baby, you need to go Low Carb. A WHOLE FOOD-based Low carb diet is going to allow you to deal with your blood sugar. It is going to cut NEUROLOGICALLY REACTIVE foods such as GLUTEN out of your diet. It is also going to help you control Inflammation.
5. AVOID XENOHORMONES:
Xenohormones are benzene-based chemicals (virtually any chemical with a smell including cleaners, perfumes, gasoline, etc) that mimic the effects of estrogen in your body. Understanding Xenohormones is critical — especially once you realize that most American women already tend toward Estrogen Dominance.
6. AVOID CHEMICALS & TOXICITY:
This can be in the form of alcohol, junk food, caffeine, pesticides, herbicides, etc. If you are trying to get pregnant and still SMOKING, you are probably already aware that you are shooting yourself (not to mention an unborn baby) in the foot. To avoid all of the crazy estrogen-based hormones contained in commercial meats (again, Xenohormones), make sure you are consuming organic.
7. EAT THE RIGHT FATS:
Avoid TRANS FATS and make sure you are taking your PGFO. Cook with Coconut oil and use Extra Virgin Olive Oil to make salad dressings.
8. YOU MAY HAVE HIDDEN DISEASES:
There are many of these and I have already covered some. THYROID ISSUES are a frequent cause of infertility as is LEAKY GUT SYNDROME.
9. HAVE MORE SEX AT THE RIGHT TIME, USING THE BEST POSITION(S):
Needless to say, the more shots you could get off in the shortest period of time, the better your chances of qualifying. This is true of conception as well. Figure out WHEN the best time for conception is, use the Missionary Position with a pillow underneath your rear end to assure that semen gets to the cervix, and by all means, make sure your husband is putting a lot of lead downrange (i.e. have lots of sex during this time).
10. GIVE IT TIME:
Do not think that dietary and lifestyle changes made today will result in a pregnancy tomorrow. Give your makeover a year to work. I just talked with a patient who, after spending a fortune unsuccessfully going thru IVF for two years, radically changed her diet. Within a few months she was pregnant. And shortly after having her first, she was pregnant with her second.
